STOP THE RAIDS – Malaysia To Take Action

The Human Lens

Press Statement  – August 16th 2018

STOP THE RAIDS!

START A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF ALL ASPECTS OF LABOUR MIGRATION NOW!

Tackle The Root Problems And Find Solutions To Protect The Rights Of All

The present raids and incarceration of migrant workers and refugees being conducted under Ops Mega 3.0 need to stop. They are arbitrary and xenophobic.  They are criminalising the wrong people.

Trump, Erdogan quarrel, Turkish people suffer

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from the USA says about itself:

15 August 2018

Economist Heiner Flassbeck and political analyst Ekrem Ekici say Turkey’s economic crisis runs deeper than U.S. sanctions.

However, like Trump started conflicts with North Korea; with Iran; with Canada; with Germany; with China; etc. etc. he now also started economic war with Turkey after the earlier collusion.

First Night Design

richard-wallace

In 1870, Richard Wallace (1818-1890) received a windfall from his employer the 4th Marquess of Hertford which comprised an art collection consisting of Old Master paintings, 17th and 18th century furniture, snuff boxes and perhaps the second largest assembly of Sevres porcelain in Britain (all in addition to homes in Britain and France as well as land in Britain). Ostensibly the inheritance was a reward for the services Wallace had performed for the 4th Marquess as his private secretary and art advisor, but the long-standing belief was that Wallace was the…
