Satire is intended to provoke thought - even dissent. That's why it must be protected.

Secretary Kerry on freedom of expression via ShareAmerica: “Free expression and a free press are core values, they are universal values, principles that can be attacked but never eradicated, because brave and decent people around the world will never give in to the intimidation and the terror that those seeking to destroy those values employ,” Kerry said.

Via Education USA NZ: This week is International Education Week a joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. #IEW, as it’s commonly known, was created so that America could inspire its students to travel abroad, but it was also meant to serve foreign students interested in making the leap to study in the United States.

As mentioned in a previous post, each day over #IEW2014 a New Zealand student currently studying in America will be profiled right here on The #DiplomaticPost.

First up we have Olivia MacDonald, studying at The University of Arizona. Take it away Olivia!

On September 5th (NZ time), U.S. Embassy Wellington, New Zealand, hosted a live discussion, "Eleanor Roosevelt: Legacies and Leadership", which featured Marie Damour, Deputy Chief of Mission; Gillian Peacock, chair of Volunteering NZ; and Vanisa Dhiru CEO of Volunteering NZ. The focus was human rights, and especially the rights of women and other minorities. Wellington's studio provided the setting for a local viewing party and international CO.NX portal and Facebook viewers with an interest in gender issues, foreign policy, politics and the legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt. Looking at the issues from a New Zealand perspective, the panelists focused primarily on NZ's work with the UN, with CEDAW and in promoting womens' rights in NZ and in the Pacific.

September marks the coincidence of the 70th Anniversary of Eleanor Roosevelt's tour of New Zealand and the Pacific, and the 120th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand. Embassy officer Dorothy Mayhew took the opportunity to interview Minister of Women's Affairs Jo Goodhew about what these anniversaries meant for her, what challenges she feels women in Aotearoa still face, and how she has managed the balance of a life in politics and a life with family.

President Obama: Five decades ago today, Americans came to this honored place to lay claim to a promise made at our founding: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

President Obama's framed program from the original March on Washington sits in the Oval Office.

Tune in today at 2:45pm ET—50 years later—to hear him speak at the Let Freedom Ring ceremony about how far we've come, and why we need to keep marching —> http://wh.gov/live #MLKDream50
