NDP take over HOC and push for a call to action for missing and murdered Indigenous Women. See full speech and ponder just how long Harper’s government has been asleep at the wheel:

Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

Justice for all Indigenous Women! by Jessica Sabogal | Montréal

1 in 3 Native American women are raped within their lifetime, and are at extreme risk of violence from non-native (white) men. x x x

Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Remus Arthur Potter, you were named after two men who looked out for my safety and cared about my well-being out of altruism and decency rather than because I was a tool for them to use or because I was someone’s son.

Reporters: stop asking about my dating life

ehmeegee:

We’ve started placing non-monetary bets on the likelihood that I’m asked about my personal life during publicity interviews.

So far I’ve been correct 100% of the time.

I can’t completely understand the fascination with my dating life; maybe I just really do a stellar job of keeping it…

China’s first ever ‘silent restaurant’ opens in Shaanxi 

A ‘silent restaurant’ in Shaanxi has received overwhelmingly positive response from its customers for a great service. It is called a ‘silent restaurant’ because its is owned by a deaf person and 80 percent of staff members are deaf as well, Tencent News reports.

Since the opening, the restaurant’s warm and friendly service has gained unanimous praise from diners. It is located in Yulin city’s cultural square and at first glance looks like an ordinary hot pot restaurant.

Origami-inspired mini-farm thrives without soil … or water
Futuristic design meets urban gardening with this curious flat-pack greenhouse kit that harnesses seaweed-extracted agar-agar gel as a growing medium.

Cool!

Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.
