Yes to Compassion: 12,000 Icelanders Step Up For Refugees, Shaming Their Government (and Several Others')

Noting "Just Because It Isn't Happening Here Doesn't Mean It Isn't Happening," over 12,000 Icelanders have offered homes and spare bedrooms and moral support to Syrian refugees after their own government said they'd help just 50 of the 4 million fleeing Syria's civil war.

"We have clothes, toys and everything a child needs," wrote a single mother and teacher. "I would of course pay for the airplane ticket.”

"This is humanity," wrote another. "When world leaders look away, the people won't."

The generous response in Iceland, representing almost 5% of that country's 330,000 inhabitants, comes amidst increasingly desperate stories of flight - some Syrian refugees are now said to be biking across Norway's border - and urgent calls for help that have often met with tepid reactions. The U.K. has said it would take just 216 refugees -  a number, it's been noted, that wouldn't fill one subway car - and the U.S. is taking about a thousand. Human beings have frequently proven more compassionate than their governments: After an Icelandic (again) activist posted a photo of Syrian-Palestinian refugee Abdul Halim Attar, his sleeping daughter over his shoulder, selling pens in the streets of Beirut, a campaign to raise $5,000 for him instead raised in a few days over $176,000, or about 3,500% of its original goal; with it, Attar vowed to help other refugees.

Need Help.

Just saw a video on Rage (ABC TV oz) which had a DISMEMBERED RHINOCEROS head on the dinner table. Lots of other bling and babes and possibly a team of people coming to kill the main dude who's house this was in. I was cheering for them but they ended up having a party I think.

I didn't get the name and my searches came up blank.
If anyone could tell me what song 21 I think was on the countdown, that would be great.
ABC rage has an Iphone app which shows the song list.

Thought it was neon or stevie or featuring some due. Sounded like the chipmunks took over the recording studio at some point...

I'd just like to explore the thinking of the clip a bit further.

If it was satire it was badly represented. #fail 
If it was gloating - deserves the dentist treatment. 

Thanks for any help internet.

Hmm, If you haven't already figured it out can you expand on the film clip a little more?

What genre of music was it? Rap?

I took a look at the list from Friday 14th of August - http://www.abc.net.au/rage/archive/s4293760.htm

and Sat 15th of August - http://www.abc.net.au/rage/archive/s4293763.htm

But song 21 on either don't appear to match up to your recollection of the music video.

You saw this and did nothing...
 
The neglect of the international community is apparent once you leave the capital of #Sanaa. Two hours north, in the #Khamir district, we find a crude camp spread over a muddy field, currently housing over a thousand internally displaced persons, or #IDPs. Emmanuel Berbain, a French physician with Medecins Sans Frontieres (aka Doctors Without Borders), has been attending to its inhabitants. "They basically have nothing," he says. "There is no food distribution in all of Khamir. You’d expect the #UN agencies to get involved in a situation like this." Since the camp, known as the Khat Market, is located on private land, #MSF has been unable to get permission to dig latrines. Berbain worries the unsanitary conditions could soon lead to epidemics.
Why is the international community ignoring the country's urgent needs for food, water and medical care?

didn't read the text, just a great image, especially in the context of the horrid image of the little dead boy on the beach.
 
Migrants

Here's a catchy little tune about American migrants -- Okies and dustbowl refugees. Written by Sis Cunningham. Over one million displaced Americans in the 1930s headed west for California.

How Can You Keep on Moving? - Ry Cooder
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDDnkQQyzQU

How can you keep on moving unless you migrate, too?
They tell you to keep on moving but migrate, you must not do
The only reason for moving and the reason why I roam
To get to a new location and find myself a home

I can't go back to the homestead, the shack no longer stands
They said I wasn't needed, had no claim to the land
They said, "Come on, get moving, it's the only thing for you"
But how can you keep moving unless you migrate, too?

Now if you pitch your little tent along the broad highway
The Board of Sanitation says, "Sorry, you can't stay"
"Come on, come on, get moving" -- it's their everlasting cry
Can't stay, can't go back, can't migrate, so where the hell am I?
