International Women's Day celebrates the achievements of women 2.3.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Doreen Nicoll March is such a wonderful month! The days are longer, March 20 is the official start of spring, and there's the promise of renewed life as snowdrops push through the last of the snow and pussy willows offer nectar to emerging pollinators. March is also the time to celebrate women's accomplishments. International Women's Day (IWD) launched Sunday, March 8, 1914. Historically, IWD celebrations have been used to advance women's rights and gender equity. However, while women around the world have made great strides, we know that even Canada has a long way to go before it can call itself truly gender equitable. In 1995, Canada was number 1 on the United Nations Gender Equality Index. Today Canada ranks 25th. In November 2016, the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) issued comprehensive recommendations regarding Canada's compliance with the UN treaty on women's rights. All recommendations are to be implemented by 2020, including a ...

Dreamers Are Hanging by a Thread: Don't Let Your Government Abandon Us 23.1.2018 Truthout.com
(Photo: Diego Lozano, Creative Director at Aliento) For its recipients, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was more than a piece of plastic. It enabled us to finally live without fear and imagine a future where we could provide for ourselves. Now that it appears that the Democrats have abandoned us once again, we call upon all people of conscience to raise their voices in defense of the Dreamers. All people of conscience must demand that Congress act now. (Photo: Diego Lozano, Creative Director at Aliento) Stories like this are more important than ever!

Today is day 142 of the vigil demanding response to Indigenous youth suicide crisis 9.12.2017 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Rachel Small Today marks the 142nd day that a continuous 24-hour vigil has been maintained outside of the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada office in downtown Toronto. Under the slogan #NOMIC (Not One More Indigenous Child) the vigil has been honoring victims of the ongoing Indigenous youth suicide crisis and demanding real, meaningful responses. That's over four months of the organizers suspending their lives in order to sleep, eat, and spend their days outside in variable ­-- and increasingly frigid -- weather. They have been tirelessly holding space with their bodies to serve as a visual reminder that Indigenous youth are dying and it is urgent that the government stop stalling and take action. The suicide crisis affecting First Nations communities is not a new problem. And despite many promises of reconciliation and rebuilding relationships, both provincial and federal governments have dragged their feet in taking any kind of action. As the organizers of the vigil explain, "There has been report ...
