can't wait for you to come home george...

needed to share this again (come on Tim Minchin, another 'updated' song is surely needed!!!) george pell, treasurer of the vatican for the past 3 years, couldn't come home last year as a witness in catholic 'child sexual abuse' cases - committed decades ago (those discovered so far) due to 'ill health', which is when this song was written... well, finally he has been charged (long overdue) here in australia and it appears the vatican is making him come home to 'clear himself'... finally george, justice might be served to the victims of your paedophile priesthood... we can't wait for you to come home george...

a powerful video...




Cate Evens - Running scared - such a beautiful, powerful voice, such powerful words...
"This is one of the most important songs that we've ever written. It goes out to every animal on this planet that is being humiliated, tortured and killed by mankind..."

never stay silent... don't look away... they are all someone, not something...

what the fuck america???

gobsmacked... america chose a misogynist, racist, speciesist, rich white man - anyone other than a womon - what the fuck america??? 

i read a brilliant piece on feminist current - "...Hillary lost, not because she was a bad candidate, but because she is a woman. White men won this election. Fear won this election — fear of the “other,” fear of losing power, jobs, money, guns, property, and privilege. Hatred won too — of minorities, refugees, people of colour, and, of course, women. The absolute unwillingness, on the parts of white Americans, to consider a woman as president won. Even women voted against themselves — for a man who doesn’t see them as equal, never mind human. Who, quite frankly, hates them." http://www.feministcurrent.com/2016/11/09/america-really-hates-women/ 

i also came across this stunning, says it all graphic (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CwzL_xYVIAA_cLK.jpg) ...



barbara kingsolver wrote a thought-provoking article published in the guardian - End this misogynistic horror show. Put Hillary Clinton in the White House - which is well worth a read...

i'm still stunned, needed to say something because it's horrifying on so many levels - it's just made this world that little more scary - yet again, what the fuck america???
