Peringatan Hari Tani Nasional Ke - 58 yang jatuh pada hari Senin, 24 September 2018.
Today I’m wearing black in support of all the victims of sexual assault, harassment and misconduct who had the courage to come forward and share their stories, and in solidarity to the women who couldn’t.
One in 5 women experience some type of sexual assault during their lifetime, but 80% of them don’t report it to the police. Most of the cases reported are dropped by the police, and only 1% of perpetrators are convicted.
While crime rates have generally declined over the past decade, the rates of sexual assault have remained unchanged.
Sexual assault is the only crime for which victims are blamed for. Besides the trauma of being assaulted, sexual assault victims are often doubted, stigmatised, ignored, blamed, disrespected, mocked... By the police and even by colleagues, friends and family.
Attempt of sexual assault is a crime. Victims are NEVER guilty. Believe survivors.
To support this cause, please wear black and walk out (of your house, work, or whereever you are) and share a photo of you on your social media with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors

Sign language isn’t just about knowing the actions; it is about learning the culture of the deaf community.
General Assembly has proclaimed September 23rd as the International Day of Sign Languages in order to raise awareness of the importance of sign language in the full realization of the human rights of people who are deaf.
The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities recognizes and promotes the use of sign languages. It makes clear that the sign languages are equal in status to spoken languages and obligates states parties to facilitate the learning of sign language and promote the linguistic identity of the deaf community.
The first International Day of Sign Languages will be celebrated in 2018 under the theme “With Sign Language, Everyone is Included!” The resolution establishing the day acknowledges that early access to sign language, including quality education available in sign language, is vital to the growth and development of the deaf individual and critical to the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals. It recognizes the importance of preserving sign languages as part of linguistic and cultural diversity. It also emphasizes the principle of “nothing about us without us” in terms of working with deaf communities.

To spark a global conversation about gender equality leading up to the #HeForShe
IMPACT Summit, HeForShe, together with Actor and HeForShe Advocate @InstaConsuelos
, is launching the #MorePowerfulTogether
campaign. Skylines in major cities around the world won’t shine as brightly this evening. That’s because landmarks around the world will turn off half of their lights, creating a visual metaphor that illustrates the power lost when the world excludes half its population — women — from society, economies and communities. Women’s full and equal representation marks one of the world’s largest untapped resources, as study after study shows that companies and societies not only benefit, but prosper, from gender equality. The data consistently shows that we are #morepowerfultogether #visiontheidea
Link in bio! | If you haven’t already, go check out our message to all the homophobes out there.
We’re tired of individuals with homophobic views thinking we want to hear how our lifestyle is wrong. You've talked enough, now it's our turn 🏳️🌈
Nobody likes to be ill, have skin infections or bad blisters. But when you do, most of the time it’s easy to see a doctor or find the right medicine.
For displaced people in Bosnia, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Outside of the system, your aches, pains and illnesses can go untreated for months.
To help those with health problems, our partners Medvint have a team of volunteer medics working with refugees and asylum seekers. In one month, they managed to treat 699 patients!
Please help us support the medics treating hundreds of refugees in Bosnia every month by donating today.
One of the formats for our new Instruments of the State album is a gun shell case USB presented in a mini ammo belt. The gun shell is genuine + comes with a 3D-printed cap that houses the USB. The USB contains the album tracks as high quality WAV files + PDFs of the album artwork, sleevenotes + thankyou note. More news, photos etc soon

It's hard to ask a survivor to tell their story, especially when it sounds much like that of your mother's, your sister's, your friends'....and your's. The rate of sexual misconduct, abuse, assault, and brutalization is so rampant globally that yeah, maybe victim's never talk, or wait decades to talk, because it takes that long to realize what's been done to you, maybe it takes that long to find your voice. #believesurvivors
or at the least, give them a fair and transparent opportunity to be heard. We're wearing black today because Survivor In White believes all victims of any sexual violence deserve dignity and a voice.

(the amazing expressionism) - .
Sabe, tudo vai muito além de colocar roupas consideradas femininas e maquiar-se. Há, sem sombra de dúvidas, representações de causas, de momentos importantes e de sentimentos que compõem o conceito que você visa passar.
São Almas puras que lutam para ter a Paz e a Liberdade de Ser o que São.
Há crimes de ódios, inúmeros, todos os dias, porém a Esperança, a Força e a Perseverança continuam, no peito; no Coração.
A Coragem é muito admirável, pois lidam com os preconceituosos dispostos a Matar.
- Nesses loucos dias, onde o Ódio está sendo distribuído abundantemente, SINTO A OBRIGAÇÃO de dizer que alguém que prega a segregação, humilhação, perseguição e opressão à minha (e às diversas) existência(s), não vai poder comandar algo. "Se fere a minha existência, eu serei resistência". .
O Amor cura.
