Remembrance in Visegrad, Eastern Bosnia; June 2016

Taken on 2016-06-14

This picture is taken during a remembrance act done in the town of Visegrad, comnemorating the Pionirska street fire where around 70 Bosniaks were set on fire during the war. This picture is taken after a march through the town organized by a local victim organization. The banner pretty much tells the tale of the Lukic cousins and their war crimes in this city. They were both processed and sentenced by the ICTY.

Planned Parenthood Shooting; Colorado Springs, CO, USA, Nov 2015

Taken on 2015-11-27

Planned Parenthood, which delivers reproductive health care and sex education to women and men across the United States, came under attack by a man with an assault rifle on November 27, 2015. Three individuals were killed in the shooting: University of Colorado Colorado Springs police officer Garrett Swasey, 44, who responded to the shooting; Ke'Arre M. Stewart, 29, who ran back to the clinic to warn others after being shot; and Jennifer Markovsky, 35, who was accompanying a friend to the clinic. Nine other victims, comprising five police officers and four civilians, were shot and admitted to local area hospitals. The gun-man eventually surrendered more than five hours after the first shots were fired. The attack comes after three additional attacks on Planned Parenthood clinics in 2015 (two cases of arson and one vandalism) and in the context of ongoing anti-abortion violence in the United States against both individuals and organisations ranging from vandalism and threats to arson, bombings and murder since the 1980s.

Pinjra Tod Demonstration; Delhi, New India, Oct 2015

Taken on 2015-10-15

Featured in this photo report are scenes of university students in Delhi protesting against sexist rules for women's hostels and the lack of proper anti-sexual harassment resources across Indian universities. The campaign is called Pinjra Tod (Break the Cage) in response to the fact that female students are routinely locked inside their hostels after dark whilst male students face no curfews. 'Images from an energetic and cathartic protest outside Telangana Bhawan (New Delhi) today by pinjratod in solidarity with the struggle of our women comrades from Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Hyderabad. Rule-books of hostels from universities across Delhi were torn and burnt, and a memorandum was submitted to the Resident Commissioner. We also blocked the main gate of Telangana Bhawan for the duration of the protest and when VIP officials wanted to get out in their fancy cars, we demanded that they show us a permission letter from their Local Guardians and enquired if their parents knew where they were going. We told them that it would be better for their own 'safety' to remain inside the gates.' - Pinjratod facebook page

Moldovans Rally Against Government Corruption; Chisinau, Sept 2015

Taken on 2015-09-06

Tens of thousands of Moldovans rallied in the nation's capital, Chisinau, protesting a recent bank fraud that has seen $1 billion disappear from the national banking system - roughly one eighth of Moldova's gross domestic output. As a result of the fraud, the small and largely rural country's currency has depreciated significantly, raising inflation and adversely affecting already low living standards. Protesters came from all over the country and called for the resignation of President Nicolae Timofti, chanting "Victory! Bring the one billion back home!". Police put protester numbers at between 35,000 - 40,000 people - organizers put their estimates at three times as many(see Moldovan Protests 2015 Wikipedia page for more information).
