Le ministre de la Santé Gaétan Barrette va limiter le nombre d’avortements pratiqués par les médecins québécois. Dans un document de travail ministériel, on apprend aussi que les avortements ne seront plus considérés comme des activités médicales prioritaires (AMP), ce qui entraînera la fermeture de cliniques et limitera l’accès aux soins.

UN Human Rights Chief Zeid says freedom of expression and opinion are cornerstones of a democratic society as he condemns the lethal attack on media workers and police in Paris: http://sm.ohchr.org/1BI3Nmz

“If this attack is allowed to feed discrimination and prejudice, it will be playing straight into the hands of extremists whose clear aim is to divide religions and societies. With xenophobia and anti-migrant sentiments already on the rise in Europe, I am very concerned that this awful, calculated act will be exploited by extremists of all sorts.”

Diane was trafficked to Paris from her home country, Burkina Faso, and forced to work in domestic servitude under terrible conditions for more than two years before she escaped. This is her story: http://sm.ohchr.org/14ygs1d

She is one of an estimated 53 million domestic workers world-wide, a third of whom have no labour protection of any kind.

The UN #SlaveryFund financially supports NGOs, to support projects delivering humanitarian, legal, psychological and social assistance to victims of slavery and offering specialized support in the reconstruction of their lives.

Read Diane’s story and others in “The Human Faces of Modern Slavery”: http://fal.cn/2fh

Stephen Harper portera seul la décision d’envoyer avions de chasse et soldats repousser le groupe État islamique (EI) en Irak. Ni les néodémocrates ni les libéraux n’appuieront une mission de combat au Proche-Orient. Le premier ministre ne les a pas convaincus qu’il s’agissait de la meilleure réponse à cette menace terroriste.

"Continuously, we have to fight to defeat the primitive tendency towards the glorification of arms, the adulation of force, born of the illusion that injustice can be perpetuated by the capacity to kill, or that disputes are necessarily best resolved by resort to violent means." ~ Nelson Mandela in an address to the 53rd United Nations General Assembly, New York City, USA, 21 September 1998

C’était comme Noël en octobre, hier, pour les animateurs de radio-poubelle et autres pourfendeurs de « BS ». Ils avaient du mal à contenir leur joie. Enfin, les « BS-qui-ont-une-maison-de-500 000 $-et-font-des-voyages-dans-le-Sud » seront épinglés !  - Tout ce bonheur découlait d’une n
