Saint Valentine’s is here, love is all aroud, the sky is blue and the birds singing !
Well… not exactly.
While abortion rights are being re-discussed in Western Europe, LGBTQ+ activists and gay people are being prosecuted far more in the East. Israeli army still raids in the West Bank, threatening and killing youngsters in the refugee camps of Palestine. Bosnian youth took over the streets to protest against corruption, when in Kiev, the pro-Europeans are still violently fighting against the pro-Russian governmental forces. Meanwhile, recalling another massacre in Rwanda in 1994, an ethnic massacre is about to start in Central African Republic – but neo-colonialist Françafrique is always there when needed.
