When we think of summer, we think of caftans. Perhaps that stems from having lived overseas for so long and in countries where caftans are commonplace. But on warm days when we want to look effortlessly chic and actually feel effortlessly chic, we reach for caftans. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Add to this affinity for their ease of wear the approach of Ramadan in May and including a few modest but elegant caftans in this collection just made sense. Whether you wear your caftan to a dreamy dinner on the beach while on vacation or to an iftar celebration during Ramadan, we hope you'll feel beautiful in these designs! #linkinbio⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #emergingdesigner #threadsbynomad #springfashion #handmade #handcrafted #designerclothes #smallbusiness #womenownedbusiness #motherdaughterduo #refugeeswelcome #styleinspiration #instadaily #instastyle #style #fashion #refugees #designer #jewelry #girlboss #ootd #outfitoftheday #gratitude #alexandriava #extraordinaryalx #dmv

What does the refugee word mean to you ? For me is strength, courage, victory and most off all a strong person that can rise even after someone take away there home, family, school, their contry and their freedom and still not given up trying it all over again. They have hope, they have love, they have understanding don’t hate the refugees. Blame it on the person that made them being a refugee from the beginning. Like mother Teresa once said : if we have no peace is Becouse we have forgotten that we belong to each other. Me my self have been a refugee all my life and one thing I found out is there is no place call home your home is in your heart because you never know when is can be taken away from you , home is where you find inner peace and places where prayer starts and hope begins to beat instead your heart , home is where you find the freedom to let god take place in your heart . If you judge someone you have no time to love them. Please be understanding to the people that comes out from everything to nothing, give them time to learn your culture, give them time to learn your languages, give them time to heal, give them love welcome them and please respect them for they are one of millions that didn’t survived they are the heroes that made it so far 🙌🏼 and remember there is another day in paradise ❤️ #refugeeswelcome #love #humanity #peaceful #saynotowar #freedom #vegan #standwithrefugees #refugees #god #picoftheday #letkidsbekids #homeless #oneworld #

#Borderless Documentary🎥 . It is going to be a tough talk. . 🔰Let me introduce you an amazing human beeing, a far-right activist, an independent journalist, a documentarist - @laurencheriie. I do not necessary share all her opinions(just because I do not have many), but I definetely enjoy what she does. She represents not mainstream views and more importantly she brings us a different prospective. I hope I do not need to explain how valuable it is nowdays. Ofcourse she does not need an advertising, I just feel that I better explain, why I encourage you to watch her documentary. . 🔰My take away from this dicomentary is the following: there is massive illegal imigration to EU, mainly because of economical reasons. Illigal imigration is extreamly expansive and dangerous. People sell their houses to buy a ticket on smugglers boats; they distroy their documents; they leave their families, loved ones; they ruin their lifes with the only goal to reach Europe. They do it because they sincerely believe that Europe is heaven. These people believe that when they come to Europe they will find a job, they will have some property, money, a better life. When they really come, risking their lives by the way, they meet harsh reality, it is not heaven. A lot of these people end up living under bridges, in refugee camps. They do not get what they so desperately wanted - a better life - and they regret to come to Europe in the first place. . 🔰I feel so sorry for these people. I feel so sorry that their dreams crashed, it is not easy. I am an imigrant myself, we are on the same page. I wish to convey my sympathy, I wish to return everything back for you. . 🔰I also feel anger that these people struggle because they were sold a lie....I do not want to go into 'By Whom' or 'How to solve', it has already gone too political. . 🔰I honestly think that this documentary is worth to watch. You will find more details, nasty facts in there. I promise all of you will find something to think about. If you want to diccuss this documentary with me, you are always welcome. . 🔰Just wanted to mention, YouTube has already gone crazy about the movie, so watch while it is still avaliable.

America Was NEVER Great—We Need Revolution. #MemorialDay any year in the USA is a disgusting celebration of slaughter and torture for American world dominance and empire. It is a weekend of propaganda and ceremonies to instill patriotism and train millions of people (especially, now, along lines of identity politics) in blind support for crimes of the military against the world's people. What we need to do now is hasten the necessary conditions to go all-out for REVOLUTION, to not only protest and resist the injustices and atrocities of this system, but win people to defy and repudiate this system and its ways of thinking, and take up the outlook, values, strategy, program of the revolution.

Passend zum Wahlergebnis 2019 gesamt —dieses tolle Buch. Noch viel schrecklicher ist das Ergebnis von Brandenburg und Sachsen. Die AFD hat die meisten Stimmen. Ja, das Buch hat daher den absolut richtigen Titel. Ich schäme mich für die Nachbarn, aber auch so, dass Intoleranz und Hass leider mehr gewinnen als Menschlichkeit. Schlimm, dass Dummheit und wenig Verstand zur Epidemie werden. Schlimm...und sehr traurig. Lesen lenkt etwas ab.

US-Behörden verschleiern den Tod migrantischer Kinder in US-Obhut Seit vergangenem Herbst sind mindestens sechs Kinder, die wegen Flucht in staatlicher Obhut waren, in den USA verstorben. Die Grenzbehörden klagen über hohe Kosten der verpflichtenden medizinischen Untersuchungen, manche Kinder warteten Monate lang auf medizinische Betreuung.

Umm Zaid showed Chef @asmakhanlondon how she made one of her favourite dishes, Maqlooba, using ingredients from a food pack from @islamicreliefuk. It’s a traditional Palestinian dish made with rice, fried vegetables & chicken which is turned upside down once it’s ready to be served (hence the name, Maqlooba). When asked how she felt when she cooked, Umm Zaid replied: ‘I feel empowered’ 💪🏽 at Jerash, Jordan

We are massive fans of @amplifierart! They describe themselves as, 'a design lab that builds art to amplify the voices of grassroots movements'. And we are totally down with that. Check out their Instagram feed it is amazing, as is their website, where loads of art is available to download. Including this incredible piece from @jessxsnow. ✊🏽❤️

May 26, 2019 (US)- Over the weekend President Trump announced that his administration would be sending 1,500 additional US troops to the middle east due to ”rising tension with Iran”. -------------- From our perspective, it appears that Trump administration is pushing for the President to go all in and possibly go to war with Iran but the President himself seems to be exercising caution. Presumably, Bolton and other members of Trumps National Security staff have suggested that the President send as many 200,000 US soldiers to Iran but so far the President has refused. --------------- Thoughts? #politics #news #realnews #makeamericagreatagain #MAGA #libertarian #republican #democrat #conservative #liberal #NRA #facebook #berniesanders #kamalaharris #FOX #CNN #NBC #MSNBC #CBS #china #Infowars #refugeeswelcome #immigrants #DACA #RedWave #Blue #wikileaks #shooting #Freejulianassange

CONFERENZA #Oef19 | Diritto di Migrare e Criminalizzazione della Solidarietà nel tempo dei populismi. _I #migranti sono attualmente il perfetto capro espiatorio da additare come la causa di ogni male. Da molto tempo il consenso elettorale viene direzionato grazie ad alcune parole e alla creazione di un nemico esterno che minaccia le nostre #Comunità. Questo avviene sia a livello globale, quanto nei diversi ambiti locali. E' il risultato di un dibattito mainstream estremamente tossico, nel quale i migranti sono tutt'al più numeri e statistiche sfruttati nelle campagne elettorali al fine di accrescere il consenso della parte politica che meglio interpreta e fomenta le paure percepite e i rancori delle popolazioni europee. ll mantra securitario che in questi ultimi anni ha portato l' #UnioneEuropea e l'Italia a politiche di esternalizzazione dei #confini e leggi fortemente inique e repressive (dalla Bossi Fini alla legge #Salvini, passando per la Minniti-Orlando), nonché a criminalizzare chiunque presti soccorso lungo le principali #rottemigratorie o solidarizzi con i migranti, non sembra, all'apparenza, venire messo in discussione. L'unica strada che abbiamo davanti per invertire questa tendenza è continuare incessantemente a tessere #relazioni per ampliare e connettere quelle forme plurali di #resistenza sociale e disobbedienza civile che non si sentono arruolati in questa #guerra contro i più #poveri." . . .Intervengono: _ DUCCIO FACCHINI, giornalista #Altreconomia autore del libro "Alla deriva" _PIA KLEMP - ex comandante della #Iuventa ( #JugendRettet) e #SeaWatch _ TOMMASO GANDINI - #MeltingPot Europa e referente italiano campagna Iuventa10 _Modera: Stefano Bleggi - OltrEconomia Festival at Trento, Italy

As my Americrops service is coming to an end, I am nothing but thankful! It may have not been what I expected but it taught be growth, appreciation, and value in so many ways. I developed so many projects that promoted higher and equal education 👩🏾‍🎓and I am beyond proud of that. This is just one of the many workshops I put on for Refugee children that promoted and educated Anti-bullying and it was a great success 🎉❤️🍾. Therefore, joining AmeriCorps was a challenge and success. #refugeeswelcome #americorpsvista #antibullying #education

Hoy, parte del equipo de Refugees Welcome Illes Balears nos hemos juntado para salir a navegar. El viento ha soplado fuerte, hacía frío, ha habido momentos que la barca parecía que iba a volcar... hemos tenido miedo y eso que estábamos cerca de la costa y hemos vuelto sanos y salvos, nos hemos tomado una cerveza para celebrarlo y hemos ido a votar... Cuánta gente coge una barca para huir y se encuentra con ese frío y ese viento (sin comida) y con el mar rodeándoles por los cuatro costados...

“Once this village was green with paddy fields. But now the water is salty and the trees have died. We can only farm shrimp. I am devastated when I think that I will have to move. This land was made by my father and grandfather. We are people, poor people living here in the countryside. If other nations reduce their use of machines, maybe we will be able to survive.” Gopal Munda is from Kara Mura in southern Bangladesh. Bangladesh may lose around 11% of its land by 2050 to sea level rise, affecting an estimated 15 million people. This not only forces people from their homes through flooding, it contaminates drinking water, causes health problems, and damages crops. This photo is part of an exhibition by the @ejfoundation we will be sharing over the coming weeks. #nowheretocallhome #displaced #noplacelikehome #climatechange #refugeeswelcome #refugeerights #humansofclimatechange #climatechaos #ClimateJustice #ClimateEmergency #climateactionnow #climaterefugees
