Amina ran away! - Topless Feminist Tunisian Protester Tells Femen She Was Beaten, Kidnapped & Drugged By Her Family

Amina explains that her early posts criticizing Femen were under duress, as many of us surmised. 

Join my Phonebank campaign to demand the White House and your representative recognize the Armenian Genocide


Join this calling campaign to the White House and Congress urging them to recognize the Armenian Genocide. 

From 1915-1923, 1.5 million Armenian men, women and children were killed by the Ottoman Turkish Government. Since then, Turkey has made it ILLEGAL to talk about the Armenian genocide -- and to make matters worse, the Turkish government has used threats and intimidation -- an internation gag rule-- on speaking out on the genocide.

While a Senator and Presidential candidate, Barack Obama pledged to recognize the Armenian genocide -- but he has since failed to live up to his promise.

Take a look at this short segment from ABC World about the Armenian Genocide, then join our calling campaign to the White House and members of Congress.

Details about the Armenian Genocide Resolution in Congress
Spearheaded by Representatives Robert Dold (R-IL), Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Armenian Caucus Cochairs Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Ed Royce (R-CA), the Armenian Genocide Resolution (H.Res.304) calls upon the President to ensure that the foreign policy of the United States reflects appropriate understanding and sensitivity concerning issues related to human rights, ethnic cleansing, and genocide documented in the United States record relating to the Armenian Genocide.
In the Senate, Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Mark Kirk (R-IL) have spearheaded similar legislation (S.Res.399)

Making Sense with Steve Leser - Special on Genocide 04/21-22

Making Sense with Steve Leser - Special on Genocide 04/21 by Making Sense with Steve Leser | Blog Talk Radio

Today's show is an hour long special on Genocide.

Guests will be survivors and decendants of survivors from the Armenian, Cambodian, Rwandan Genocides as well as the Holocaust. They are

Armenian Genocide: Karine Shnorhokian, who is the grandchild of survivors

The Holocaust: Sol Rosenkranz, a survivor of the holocaust

The Killing Fields of the Cambodian Genocide: Bun Yom, survivor.

The Rwandan Genocide: Nibagwire Dida, survivor, will participate from Kigali, Rwanda

The show will begin with me introducing each of the guests and asking each to give an 8-10 minute description of their experiences with genocide. Then I plan to have a question and answer and crosstalk where we discuss similar experiences, ways in which earlier genocides may have in fact served as a blueprint for later genocides or emboldened the perpetrators of future genocides and also problems with getting the perpetrators identified and prosecuted.

Finally, we will discuss strategies for improving the odds that will make "Never Again" a reality.

Also, be on the lookout here at for an upcoming posting with extended interviews with each of our guests!
