The Fight Over #Women’s #Basketball in #Somalia

Aisha’s former teammate Amaal began playing with the encouragement of a friend, a lively, well-liked girl named Faiza. One day, before a #game, al-Shabaab militants arrived at Faiza’s house. They took her to an empty lot and tortured her, cutting her body and face with shards of glass, shaved her head, and then left her to die. “It made me really scared for my life,” Amaal recalled. “You put your life in danger in this country because of the thing that you love.”

The South Sudanese diaspora actively peddles hate speech. Is this helping to drive the violence?

#Bolivia approves #highway through #Amazon #biodiversity hotspot

In 2012, the Bolivian #government held a consultation process in #Tipnis which was widely criticised by international and national monitors. Bolivia’s human rights ombudsman concluded that the government’s process had failed to allow free and informed consent.

A 2011 #study by the Bolivian Institute for Strategic Research found that the road would accelerate #deforestation by increasing access to the territory for illegal loggers and farmers. It predicted deforestation of 64% of the park within 15 years if the road was built, more than a projected 43% loss without the road.

Don’t #Whitewash the #Hiroshima #Bombing

#America’s deliberate targeting of #civilians, and its post-facto justifications, are clearly not unique, either in World War II, or in the wars before or since. Other nations, including #Japan itself, added their own #horror to the books, mostly without remorse. But #history’s only use of #nuclear #weapons holds a significant place in infamy, especially on this August 6. America’s lack of introspection over one of the single most destructive days in the history of human #warfare continues, with 21st-century #consequences.

"We have fought to be here," she says, calling immigrant voices to action. "It's our country, too."
