Victories against Trump are Mounting. Here’s How we Deal the Final Blow

President Donald Trump

Rebecca Solnit | The Guardian UK

In this moment, populist intervention is everything, not as hate and attack but as an expression of popular will and power. Or as love, since we defend what we love. It is an extraordinary moment, an all-hands-on-deck emergency in which new groups and coalitions are emerging along with unforeseen capacities in many people who didn’t previously think they were activists. It is saturated with possibility, as well as with danger.   Continue reading

Fed up of waiting 23 years for the incumbent administration to provide quality basic services, many residents of the gold mining township of Bartica are prepared to give the opposition a chance to run Guyana’s affair.

In turn, the opposition coalition of A Partnership for National Unity+ Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) is promising better health care, reliable electricity, proper roads, a modern ferry stelling, improved security, proper garbage collection and disposal and incentives for the gold mining sector.

Uploaded on Dec 5, 2011 TEDxFiDiWomen

Lissa Rankin, MD is an OB/GYN physician, author, keynote speaker, consultant to health care visionaries, professional artist, and founder of the women’s health and wellness community OwningPink.com.
