"Today is my partner’s birthday. Fifty-some years ago, her grandmother cleaned farmhouses in rural Saskatchewan in exchange for a safe place to stay with her daughter. She was hiding from government officials, who were taking Indigenous women’s children and putting them in residential schools. Had the government found my partner’s grandmother, my partner might not be here. So, today I celebrate her. She is gentle, compassionate and kind, and I want the world to be as gentle, compassionate, and kind in return to her."

"Despite the ban on overtime for 15- to 17-year-olds, there is little incentive for employers to stick to the rules. “If an employer breaks the law, they don’t get punished, so the employer will break the law again and again,” says C Cawdu union organiser Rama An."

"In contrast to politicized figures like former Taliban opponent Ahmad Shah Massoud, whose death two days before the September 11 attacks on the U.S. in 2001 is celebrated annually as Massoud Day, Farkhunda is an icon 'chosen by the people, the difference between imposition and choice', Samar said."

#women #afghanistan #violence
Poets, musicians, actors and activists packed an empty shop in a Kabul mall to commemorate the short life and violent death of a woman who has become a symbol for justice and women's rights in a country that historically elevates warlords and battlefield heroes to national icons.

#animalcruelty #canada
TORONTO – One of Canada’s largest chicken producers has launched an investigation into alleged animal rights violations at its slaughtering facility, a year after an Ontario court found it guilty of failing to provide humane treatment for thousands of poultry.
