50 years of Pride and why we still need it – podcast
In 1972, members of the LGBTQ+ community marched through London demanding equality and celebrating their identities. Five decades on, Ted Brown from the Gay Liberation Front recounts his memories of that time“I came out to my mother with the words: ‘Mum, I think I’m becoming homosexual.’”Ted Brown grew up in London at a time when homosexuality was illegal. When he was 14, he felt very alone and isolated, and decided to come out to his mother “out of depression about the situation”. He recalls his mother, who had been involved in the civil rights movement in the US, saying to him: “There’s nothing wrong with your being homosexual and you deserve equal rights in the same way as black people have been fighting for our rights.” Continue reading...News, sport and opinion from the...

Ecuador deal reached to end weeks of deadly protests and strikes
Agreement between government and Indigenous leaders includes fuel price cut and mining restrictionsEcuador’s government and the country’s main Indigenous group have reached an agreement to end 18 days of often-violent strikes that had virtually paralysed the country and killed at least four people. The deal, which includes a decrease in the price of fuel and other concessions, was signed by government minister Francisco Jimenez, Indigenous leader Leonidas Iza and the head of the Episcopal Conference, Monsignor Luis Cabrera, who acted as mediator. The agreement on Thursday sets out that gasoline prices will decrease 15c to US$2.40 a gallon and diesel prices will also decline the same amount, from $1.90 a gallon to $1.75. The deal also sets limits to the expansion of oil exploration areas and prohibits mining activity in protected areas, national parks and water sources. The government now has 90 days to deliver solutions to the demands of the Indigenous groups. “Social peace will only be able to be achieved, hopefully soon, through dialogue with particular attention paid to marginalised communities, but always respecting everyone’s rights,” Cabrera said. He went on to warn that “if state policies do not resolve the problem of the poor, then the people will rise up”. Continue reading...News, sport and opinion from the...
