Global ethical human rights will give the Lost Generation of Youth a future. (tags)
Global ethical human rights will give youth a future. It's really a macabre understanding of human beings which sees only absolute control to crush potential as the way to achieve peace. In fact, in my view, it creates slaves and dangerous States which are not held to account.

Trump Cards, Fig Leafs and Ludicrous Insinuations (tags)
For people going through harassment and discrimination within a structured environment like a job, school, religious organization, etc it can be a nerve wracking experience. This is especially true at first, as the person being harassed will feel as if they are suddenly being treated in a way they didn't expect. It can feel harsh and emotionally jarring. There can be stress caused not only by the harassing and discriminatory actions themselves, but also by the psychological toll. By emotional toll I mean the worrying, the stressing over what happened and the emotional toll caused by being unsure about what will come next.
Prop 8 Struck Down by Federal Court (tags)

Yet the fight for equality has been going on far longer than that.

Filipino WW II Vets/Widows Ask for Apology from Obama and US Congress (tags)
A day after the Memorial Day marked by flags and parades, Filipino WW II vets and widows vow to demand a formal public apology from President Barack Obama and the US Congress for 65 years of abandonment, racial discrimination and injustice. ?We deserve full recognition and full compensation. But the wounds of long years of humiliation as second-class American veterans will never completely heal until the US government asks for apology,? says Felino Punsalan, who celebrates 93rd birthday today, without any lump-sum, much less monthly pension, nor any signs that he would be recognized soon as an American veteran. Vets and their families ask California Assemblywoman Fiona Ma to introduce a separate bill demanding for apology. Ma previously sponsored bills supporting HR 210, ?The Filipino Veterans Fairness Act of 2011,? and the inclusion of the Filipino WW vets in the social studies curriculum of schools in California.

Re-Introduction of Uniting American Families Act (tags)
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) re-introduced The Uniting American Families Act (UAFA) in the House and Senate today. The legislation calls for an end to the immigration discrimination gay and lesbian Americans face when they seek to sponsor a foreign partner to live with them in the United States. “One of the fundamental principles of American immigration law and policy is the notion of family unification…. Unfortunately, same-sex couples committed to spending their lives together are not recognized as "families" under current federal law, including US immigration law,” said Nadler.
Bush Signs President's Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Legislation (tags)
President Bush signed the President’s Emergency Program (PEPFAR) into law yesterday at the White House.
The landmark bill, which passed in both the House and Senate by wide margins earlier this month, provides $48 billion over the next five years for the global fight of AIDS. Within the legislation is a directive to lift the HIV travel/immigration ban, which bars foreign travelers with HIV/AIDS from entering the United States unless they obtain a spouse or family waiver. That ban is blatantly discriminatory, particularly against gay men and lesbians with the illness, because under current US immigration law, their partners do not qualify as spouses or family.
