Humanity: No Justice, No Peace! (Links)

This past week, people from all over the world joined in the seemingly never ending fight for equality; expressing their disgust with injustice and discontentment with oppression and YES, I am all the way here for it!! To speak honestly, the events of this past week seem somewhat surreal, like something you learn about from history books or stories told by elders, while naively never expecting to experience in your lifetime but as the saying goes, history has a tendency to repeat its self.

Everyone deserves the freedom to live their life in peace and in fairness; for as long as I live, I will always be on the side of the oppressed. So, what do we do now? The best and probably most vital thing we can do is get involved with the movement just as our ancestors did, which is critically necessary for the sake of the next generation. Below are a few links to information, interviews and resources shared across the internet this week related to the peoples demand for fair treatment and to end systematic racial discrimination:
