    The Local France ^ | 01/ 05/ 15
    Despite the French president calling for “unity” in the light of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, an almighty row broke out on Thursday after the National Front were not invited to Sunday’s Republican rally. France’s politicians were not able to show their new found unity for long. Just a day after the Charlie Hebdo shooting left 12 dead and had politicians calling for the country to unite, a row between politicians broke out after the National Front were not invited to take part in Sunday’s rally for “national unity” in Paris. For her part Marine Le Pen was furious that the...

    Anyone close up regarding the PEGIDA movement in Germany? German citizens taking a stand against the insane immigration policies/ Islamization of their country sounds right to me. From here, it sounds like the powers-that-be are demonizing it - reminds me of what they said about the Tea Party. Curious to have some feedback from those closer in. Thanks.

    On Sunday, September 21st, a huge crowd will march through the middle of Manhattan. It will almost certainly be the largest rally about climate change in human history, and one of the largest political protests in many years in New York. More than 1,000 groups are coordinating the march—environmental justice groups, faith groups, labor groups—which means there's no one policy ask. Instead, it's designed to serve as a loud and pointed reminder to our leaders, gathering that week at the United Nations to discuss global warming, that the next great movement of the planet's citizens centers on our survival and...

    Mass protests have been taking place in Venezuela over the past few days to rally against the country’s government, an ignorant regime that has deprived its people of means to survive and allowed escalating criminal acts to go unpunished.Yet even more frightening than the reasons behind these demonstrations is the lack of coverage from a great deal of the Latin American media, which has been making a conscious effort to keep the unrest a secret.This video from YouTube user Andreina Nash explains why thousands of adults, children and students have taken to the streets, as well as what you can...

    The anti-Government demonstrations in Venezuela may be approaching boiling point with a showdown set for Tuesday in the capital Caracas. Three US diplomats have been expelled and an arrest warrant issued for opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez. The demonstrations have grown in intensity over the past two weeks. They are partially a response to an economic crisis in an oil-rich country. Inflation is the highest in Latin America. Crime has soared, there are power blackouts, the black market is flourishing and food staples are sometimes difficult to find. The Socialist Government blames shortages on saboteurs and sees the hand of the...

President Nicolás Maduro remains in control, but without Hugo Chavez’s as the unifying behind "Chavismo," there is a chance the unrest may shake the balance of power in Caracas.

    The town of Campbell, Wis., is facing a federal lawsuit challenging ordinance 9.12, which bans the display of banners or flags on or near the town’s pedestrian overpass. Demonstrators began using the overpass in August 2013 to call for President Obama’s impeachment and to display patriotism. After a gathering in October angered local citizens and garnered media attention, the Town of Campbell passed the ordinance, which prohibits the display of signs, flags or banners within 100 feet of the overpass. On Oct. 24, Gregory Luce and a few supporters, wearing T-shirts that collectively spelled out “IMPEACH OBAMA,” were ordered by...

"The demonstration today is only the beginning of a process that unfortunately will only escalate,” he predicted, “and I regret to say that we will see violence in the streets.” Hulda'i accused the government of ignoring the difficulties that the infiltrators face, as well as the difficulties faced by residents who suffer from the immigrants.

    Protesters showed their support of the Regulation Law in a demonstration near the Supreme Court shortly before a vote on the bill. Dozens of youths and young adults blocked the road near the court house in Jerusalem before the Knesset plenum was scheduled to decide on the measure, which would retroactively legalize Beit El's Ulpana neighborhood. The so-called Regulation Bill requires anyone claiming ownership of land upon which homes are being built to file a challenge and prove ownership within four years of the start of construction upon the property.

The course’s professor on Wednesday acknowledged some initial hesitation, but said student feedback was “uniformly positive.” And Northwestern defended the class and its professor. “Northwestern University faculty members engage in teaching and research on a wide variety of topics,...

There were chants of "Allah-o akbar" across Tehran. People expect something to happen. Publicly, Mr. Karroubi and Mr. Mousavi have called for a demonstration in solidarity with the people of Egypt. Nobody thinks or believes this is about Egypt or will remain focused on Egypt. No wonder that their request has been rejected as illegal.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs declined to say whether the U.S. still supports Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, reiterating only that Egypt remains a “strong ally.” “We have an unyielding belief that all people yearn for certain things: the ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed; confidence in the...

    A rare anti-Vladimir Putin rally has been held in central Moscow, demanding the Russian prime minister's resignation amid signs he is planning to take back his old job as president. Up to 500 protesters from left wing and liberal anti-Kremlin opposition groups gathered on Moscow's Pushkin Square to call for Vladimir Putin's removal, kicking off what they said was the start of a campaign to oust him. "Our task is to free Russia from this awful regime," Garry Kasparov, a former world chess champion turned opposition leader, told the crowd. "Putin is Russia's disgrace."

Police spokesman Zach Friend said an estimated 250 people started marching through the city around 10:30 p.m. Saturday. It was a harmonious but "unpermitted and unsanctioned event," he said, until some in the crowd started breaking windows and spraying paint on retail shops that line the downtown corridor. Friend said he wasn't sure if the damage was caused by people marching in support of immigrants' rights, or if the...

He refuses to address the gaping holes in our borders and the thousands of illegals that are committing crimes on our streets, but he has time to produce a video urging Democrats to maintain their grip on the House and Senate.

    WICHITA - About 30 members of anti-abortion groups met Saturday at the headquarters of Operation Rescue for a memorial service and to pray for healing from the shooting death of abortion provider George Tiller.

    (IsraelNN.com) Police evacuated leaders of the Jewish community in the southern Swedish city of Malmo out of fear for their lives after pro-Arab demonstrators attacked a demonstration in support of Israel there Sunday afternoon. About 700 people took part in the pro-Israel rally, including members of Sweden's Democratic party. Participants carried signs saying, "Stop Eight Years of Kassam" and "Peace for Children in Israel and Gaza." The Arab supporters, who had been holding a demonstration of their own, threw a tear-gas grenade, bottles and eggs at participants in the pro-Israel demonstration about half an hour after it began.

I've been so hurt and angry since my theoretically liberal and gay-friendly state passed Proposition 8 that I instantly replied, just as loudly, "Hey, I'm one of those sodomites, too!" Maybe I should have had a...
