“Last September 17th, as part of a wave of global protest, people from across the country raced to the heart of New York’s financial district to occupy Wall Street. In the face of big banks foreclosing on our homes, killing our jobs, buying up our democracy, and turning our environment into just another toxic asset, you showed up, and we became the 99%.”

Women in America have no idea what “rights” are, to be honest. They complain about wrongly stated words, rumors, cliches, and stereotypes (which are usually jokes) while women in the Middle East are hung, beaten up, stoned, shot, beheaded, or raped BECAUSE they didn’t listen to the law, their husband, or a man in general.

People, you need to relax. You live in a country where almost anything is allowed, yet you complain like you are being held in a basement, chained down, and can’t speak.

I understand you have a right to speak and I think it’s great women have something to say because I hate sexism and racism…but it gets childish when your argument is about slut shamming, rape (which isn’t something most men want to do), or how women are better than men or equal. Who the fuck ever said you weren’t equal ? Because you, being ignorant, decide to watch the 6 o’clock news and heard that some southerner from Alabama said “women don’t matter” …that’s how you think the other 150+ million men think in America?

Undoubtedly, almost every single time I’ve been in an argument with a feminist she invariably leads the argument into the subject of hating men. As one intelligent person said to me once “

“Stop the hate. If you replaced the word ‘men’ in your argument with the word ‘blacks’ I think you can more readily see the type of argument you are making.”

Chill.

Disclaimer: I don’t give a fuck if you think I’m sexist. I wrote this as an opinion, something most people, if not all people have. Do not message me and do not reblog this thinking I will care about your snobby remarks. Read it and understand it or fuck off. Thank you, Derek-Jon.

Violence in Syria has escalated into what the Red Cross calls a civil war. Activists say at least 17,000 people have died since the uprising began in March last year. The government of Bashar al-Assad, increasingly losing territory to rebel fighters, blames “terrorists” and “armed gangs” for the unrest, while the opposition and other nations have accused Assad’s forces of crimes against humanity.

In-case you haven’t been keeping up with what has been happening in Syria, follow this live blog.

Check this page for details on the wide range of events being planned for the one year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street 

Occupy Wall Street invites you, the 99%, down to the Financial District for three days of education, celebration and resistance. The 1% is controlling our fates; we are drowning in loans, student debt, fraudulent mortgages. You are not a loan. Money destroys our political process, our communities and our environment. Join a mass mobilization of the 99%. Stand and be counted. Let’s occupy our future, together. 

They can steal your job, your home, your freedom, your vote.
They can’t steal our ability to dream together.
Nothing is impossible once you refuse to live in fear.

We are the 99%
Bring your friends.

Last year, on the 14th of July, a girl called Daphni Leef pitched a tent on Rothschild Boulevard in central Tel Aviv. She was protesting against the high living costs in Israel that had left her unable to pay her rent, and the lack of opportunities for young people that had driven a close friend…

We’re now less than two weeks away from Mexico’s presidential election, and at this point, few people would have expected that the otherwise unsurprising democratic process of voting would be accompanied by scenes of rabble-rousing students chanting and singing along with mariachi bands outside the studios of Mexico’s leading television network.

These scenes, part of a nascent student movement known as #YoSoy132, are now becoming regular features on the nightly news in Mexico. Imagine that, young people protesting media bias and media manipulation by the thousands in a country with little precedent for such collective grievances against corporate big media.

A lot of people here are pretty excited with this development.

It all started on May 11, when candidate Enrique Peña Nieto visited the Iberoamerican University in Mexico City for what was supposed to bea friendly meet-and-greet with the student and academic community. Instead, over the course of his visit, Peña Nieto suffered a humiliating and disastrous few hours of abuse from what looked like a spontaneous student protest. It got messy.

Peña Nieto came for a normal campaign stop, to deliver a speech and answer questions before an auditorium. The thing was going nominally well until students who had managed to slip in protest signs past a security check could no longer contain themselves. According to video, photos, and accounts of the event, the shouting started after one lone guy with a poofy haircut and a lot of attitude stood up silently holding a hand-drawn sign that read simply, TE ODIO. “I hate you.”

The shouting and chanting grew. Peña Nieto sought an escape. More protesters were waiting for him outside. The candidate with the movie-star looks and soap-opera star wife was chased through the halls and courtyards of “the Ibero” by choruses of “Murderer!” and “Coward!” as students protested his handling of a 2006 dispute with campesinos in the town of San Salvador Atenco during his term as a state governor. The shouting and chasing grew overwhelming. Peña Nieto hid briefly in a restroom with his team, trying to find a good way out. Video of the moment shows Peña’s eyes wide and hollow, his forehead tense, lips curled up with fear.

The head of the United Nations’ peacekeeping operations has said that the situation in Syria now amounts to a full-scale civil war as witnesses on the ground described fresh shelling on Homs and heavy fighting in other cities.

“Yes, I think we can say that,” Herve Ladsous, the head of the UN’s Department of Peacekeeping Operations, told reporters in New York on Tuesday, when asked whether he believed Syria was now in a state of civil war.

“Clearly what is happening is that the government of Syria lost some large chunks of territory, several cities to the opposition, and wants to retake control.”

Kieran Dwyer, a spokesman for the UN peacekeeping department, told Al Jazeera that Landous’ description was “related to what is going on in the last five days.”
