 Women Navigate Political Minefield in Kenya

By Miriam Gathigah

Credit: Miriam Gathigah/IPSNAIROBI, Jan 25 2013 (IPS) – Few women in Kenya harbour illusions of entering politics. Blatant discrimination, threats and intimidations, an uneven playing field and a largely unsympathetic public have turned electoral politics into a veritable minefield for women hoping to secure top government posts.

Despite adopting a more gender sensitive constitution back in 2010, in which Article 81(b) stipulates that not more than two-thirds of the members of elective public bodies shall be of the same gender, male-dominated parties continue to make a farce of the little political space offered to women.

Aisha, “married” to the “prophet” Mohammed, “consumption” “marriage” on her ninth year.

In preaching Islam, some back the live of ‘their’ spokesperson or representative, preaching worse than imaginable, but children married to adult and old men. pre—aching more than paedophilia but act of torture that ought to be punished by severe stay in prison in this world all beyond rotten and  moribund. It is happening in schools, and all this starting (being official) in the U.K.

 

Please check on the net by typing anything like ‘age of aisha, mohammed,  islam’ and you will see that paedophilic enforced torture way of life is a grande classic of muslim literature.

 

 

Ps: It is not of any unbiased thesis that paedophiliac attitude is more east-centred. as for proof how on earth come that a very little proportion of the population is not aware of this, though screwed to their journals and TV.

Because of a culture that is incestuous and sexist, and slavist in the west as much. and how many of men and women, white if spare when the coming back of Malthus, are longing to be lingering near harems, brothels or others. Or at home, just like the under coverage of sexual exploitation within ‘job positions’ and ‘family’, ‘enforced prostitution via unemployment running and citizenship payday (pederast) is an help at supporting innocent and ingénue disarmament,  for the strengthening of all perversity.

With the west helping depravity, as more anxious to satisfy their control and detainment or denouncement sexual and sentimental over homosexuality, than stopping job for lust and the shortage of opportunity.

Just like purist, polishing their lines of toleration, hiding by any means, that puritans were just that much decadent.

Talking virginity deforming up to their own virtuosity.

 

West con-sensus, census.

Sense common to the coerced, imprisoned by nothing less than censorship that will leave us senseless, ready to eat and seasoned.


Andes glaciers melting at high speed
A study reports that glaciers in the Andes mountain range of South America are retreating at rates faster than any in the past 300 years — between 30% and 50% since the 1970s — and “will probably completely disappear within the coming decades,” said lead author Antoine Rabatel. Among the areas likely to be most affected are the Santa River valley in Peru, and the city of La Paz in Bolivia. BBC (1/23) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

Zidi has horrific injuries. His pain is excruciating. He is desperately weak, undernourished and exhausted. But Zidi is terrified because he knows what’s coming next. But with a gift to WSPA, you could help save him.

The cruellest fight

Tethered to a post, Zidi is defenceless as two trained fighting dogs launch a savage attack. Still bleeding and wounded from his last fight, the powerful jaws of one dog sink into Zidi’s muzzle whilst the second dog tears into his neck. Zidi cries out in pain as the crowd cheer, all in the name of entertainment. He is only spared from death as he’ll be forced to fight again. Every time he is dragged to his next fight, all he can do is swipe helplessly, as his teeth have been removed and claws filed back.

This is the horrific reality of bear baiting in Pakistan. But Zidi isn’t the only bear. Right now there are 50 bears facing this atrocious cruelty. Will you help WSPA save them?

Zidi urgently needs to be rescued. Please help him

WSPA and local partner in Pakistan, have been saving bears from this miserable existence for over ten years, taking rescued bears to a new life of peace and safety at a WSPA-funded bear sanctuary. But there is still so much more to do, and we’re determined to end bear baiting for good.

‘The Hobbit’: Unexpected Cruelty

When The Hobbit is released in December, audiences will see an adventure story set in a fantasy world. For the animals involved in the filming, however, the abuse and neglect that they experienced were far too real. In all, five horses, 12 chickens, a pony and several goats and sheep were allegedly maimed or killed.

The Hobbit PETA

A horse named Shanghai was hobbled (his legs were tied together so that he couldn’t move) and left on the ground for three hours because he was too energetic for his rider. Afterward, in order to hide his rope burns for filming, his legs were covered with make-up and hair. Hobbling is an outright violation of guidelines from the American Humane Association (AHA), which was monitoring the production.

More alleged abuse took place where the animals were housed. One horse was killed and another horse was injured after being placed with two high-strung geldings, despite concerns that the geldings would be too aggressive. Another horse was killed after falling off an embankment in a severely crowded paddock. When the horses were moved to the stables, another horse died, probably from colic, an extremely painful illness, after being fed large amounts of food that he wasn’t used to. When the horses were moved back to the paddocks after this incident, another horse had the skin and muscles of her leg torn away by wire fencing. Several goats and sheep died from worm infestations and from falling into the sinkholes that covered the farm, and 12 chickens were mauled and killed by unsupervised dogs or trampled by other animals when left unprotected.

How can something like this happen when the unit production manager was warned and the production was monitored by the AHA? Furthermore, this movie was directed by Peter Jackson, a master of computer-generated imagery (CGI). In a movie that features CGI dragons, ogres, and hobbits, CGI animals would have fit in perfectly. Jackson could have made The Hobbit without using a single animal—and he should have.

Send a message to filmmakers that hurting and killing animals for a film is unacceptable and refuse to see movies that do. Urge Peter Jackson to hold himself and his crew responsible when it comes to animal safety on film sets. Send him a message now!

c: I DON’T AGREE WITH NOT USING ANIMALS, IT COULD BE GOOD FUN. BUT THIS….
WE ARE USED TOO, WE ARE A WORLD.
BUT THIS IS WHY USE IS ALL WHAT IS DETESTABLE ABOUT THE CONVERGENT NOTION OF WORK.
