“They hear all that you hear and read what you write
Have access to your mail and know your favorite site
while you fund both their wars and the other side
now it’s all exposed and you’re the one they fight.” – Johnito “Resistance Is Vital” #4Snowden #4Freedom #FreeSpeech #Snowden #NSA #Johnito #Music #ProtestMusic 4snowden.org
Call on UNAIDS, UNDP and UNFPA to listen to survivors and ensure that efforts to prevent sex trafficking are effective by addressing the demand for commercial sex.
Equality Now and 97 anti-trafficking organizations worldwide, many of which are survivor-led, are gravely concerned about two reports released last year with the backing of the United Nations (UN) and which are being seen as official UN policy. These reports not only make recommendations in direct opposition to international human rights standards, but also largely ignore the experiences and views of survivors of prostitution and sex trafficking.

Modern-day slavery takes on many names. But no matter what it is called, we know this injustice can and will end!
Take action today.
What Is Modern Day Slavery ? It Is Living Under The Constant Threat Of Violence, Working Without Pay, Without Freedom.
Medellin Memorial is located in front of Boswell High School. It was dedicated on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2004, as a tribute to United States Marine Corps Corporal Marty Medellin who died on April 7, 2003 while bravely serving his country in Iraq. Marty, a 2000 graduate of Boswell High School, was the first soldier from Tarrant County to be killed in the line of duty. The memorial also serves as a remembrance of others in our EM-S ISD community that are no longer with us.
His parents gave him three names. But in Fort Worth, where Jesus Martin Antonio Medellin grew up, everyone called him “Marty.” The 21-year-old Marine died April 7, 2003 when enemy fire on an Iraqi bridge hit the amphibious assault vehicle he was riding in. Medellin was so reliable that when a teacher had to be out of class in high school, he’d always give Medellin’s name to any substitute. “You could depend on this guy in any situation,” said David Moerbe, who teaches economics at Boswell High School. His family described him as a gentle, quiet man who was active in church, loved his grandmother’s tortillas and spent time with his 11-year-old brother, Simon. The second of four sons, Medellin knew from a young age that he wanted to become a Marine. He graduated from Boswell high in 2000 and returned to the school after 6 months on a recruiting swing. Handsome and sharply dressed in his Marine uniform, he sought out Moerbe to tell him all he had accomplished. His former pastor, Paul Danielson, recalled how proud Medellin was in his uniform. - Semper Fidelis is in inscribed in the obelisk and can be seen on the back of the plaza sign, located directly on the circles edge to show our everlasting respect for his sacrifice.

For many of the 842 million hungry people in the world, the answer is not a hand-out of free food. It’s more about making local food ‘systems’ more productive and reliable so that nutritious food is always available, even to the poorest of the poor.
