Ethiopian girl guarded from gang rape & assault by three lions.
“The girl had been taken by seven men who wanted to force her to marry one of them. She was beaten repeatedly. Then the lions chased off her captors. The three lions guarded her for about half a day. They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest.”
Then, Stuart Williams (the local wildlife ‘expert’) suggests that perhaps the lions mistook the 12 year old girl’s cries for a lion cub. Which seems awfully silly, considering that lions are perfectly capable of telling apart the gazelles they eat from their own cubs, aren’t they?
if fuckin lions know that rape is bad then so should you
The Emmy Comes to Bil’in, Palestine
Emmy International Award winner, Emad Burnat, brought his award back to Bil’in today (29.11.2013) - the Palestinian village where his documentary, Five Broken Cameras, was filmed - for the weekly Friday protest against Israel’s Wall and land theft.
There’s no Holywood ending for Bil’in as the struggle enters its 9th year. In the past few months Israel’s army has ramped up it’s repression of the demonstrations, with many more injured and arrested. They include Emad’s brother, who was shot in the leg three weeks ago.
