REDress Project – missing and murdered Indigenous women

Half of the women murdered in Canada are aboriginal.

The REDress Project began in 2010 as a way to remember the more than 1,000 missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. And to prevent tragedies like those in future.

The educational program has reached Parksville and Qualicum Beach, B.C.

I saw them at Parksville City Hall.

The REDress Project is running in conjunction with the United Nation’s 16 days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

What the Hell was going on?

Jim VandeHei explains why the USA has such extreme politics in 2017: Newt GingrichFox News (1996), MSNBC, CNN, Facebook and later Twitter, Sarah Palin and finally Trump.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert documented the idiocy.

It’s easy to say Americans deserve the politicians they have.

My fear is that other nations will evolve in the direction of the American way. 😦
