Wages for masturbation? Burning questions of our movement

Owen Jones, ageless boy wonder of the British Left, has apparently upset some of his more matronly fans. Seems he wasn’t sufficiently scandalized by revelations that Labour MP Simon Danczuk from Rochdale beats off at work. 910 more words


Hundreds of migrants feared dead in Mediterranean shipwreck that could be the 'biggest human tragedy of the last few years'

About 700 people were feared dead after a fishing boat with people fleeing Libya in what could be the worst disaster of the Mediterranean migrant crisis. The bath sank after passing 70 miles from the Libyan coast.

The location is south of the southern Italian island of Lampedusa, as the Italian coast guard said, Reuters reports. International aid groups had concerns with the European Union’s “Triton” border protection operation.

European Union policy chief Federica Mogherini said ”foreign ministers would discuss urgent action on the migrant issue at a meeting in Luxemburg on Monday.”

The Associated Press reporting on the incident writes, "the Italian Premier Matteo Renzi summoned his top ministers to a strategy session in Rome Sunday evening, saying that the numbers of dead are still provisional but 'are destined to rise.'” “How can it be that we daily are witnessing a tragedy?” Renzi asked.

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres said in a statement on Sunday, "219,000 people crossed the Mediterranean by sea and 3,500 died last lat year."

As the AP reports, U.N. data shows "35,000 asylum seekers and migrants have reached Europe so far and more than 900 are known to have died in failed crossings. Last week, 400 people were presumed drowned when another boat capsized."

Chaos and violence in Libya, where rival militias, tribal factions and other political forces have destabilized the country forces people to flee the country toward Europe.

Lately there has not been much of writing for me. Mostly this is due to my inability to cope with the daily life along side of my studies that I have lost track of – I’m spending my woken hours daydreaming and trying to figure out what’s wrong only to find it problematic that I don’t know where to begin searching for answers. 759 more words
