I am so short of words! How can the people who say they are protecting us be the same ones to violate us? This is all shades of WRONG!
THIS IS SO BLOODY WRONG!!! THIS REALLY HAS TO STOP!!! #NIgerianPolice #Bullies #Brutality #WarAgainstBrutality #WarAgainstTerror #HumanRights #NigerianPoliceForce #NPF #PoliceBrutality@deyemiokanlawon

Babayo And The Mobile Phone

Babayo is between 55 and 60 years old and lives with Issaw (see previous post). He sleeps under a mosquito net in Issaw’s hallway. “After Boko Haram attacked my town, I ended up in Diffa without my family. I have not received any news from my wife or my son for the past 16 months. There is not much for me to do here. Sometimes I ask Issaw to lend me his mobile phone so that I can try to reach my family. I have called so many times, but no one ever picked up so far. I can't go back to my town in Nigeria yet because of Boko Haram, but I hope one day I will be able to, and find my family safe.” Around the world, more than 128 million people are trapped in crises and struggling to survive—a number not seen since the Second World War. Due to conflict and violence, a record-breaking 65 million people have fled their homes to seek safety and assistance. Many of them left with little more than the clothes on their backs.

In partnership with the UN Office of Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs (@un_ocha) and @United_photo, I travelled to one of the world’s worst emergency to shed light on what it means to live through a crisis. Who do you turn to when you cannot go home? What do you hope for when you have lost everything?

The series "What We Share" delves into the themes of displacement and solidarity. Photographed in Diffa, Niger, "What We Share" tells the stories of people who fled violence and conflict across the border in north-eastern Nigeria, and of the local communities who have taken them in. By exploring the relationship between refugees and host families, we bear witness to the powerful ties that bind humans and motivate people to share their belongings and homes with strangers, even when they themselves have very little. "What We Share" is currently exhibited along with my other project "One Day I Will" (@1day1will) at T3 photo festival in Tokyo, Japan, until the end of the month. Come and have a look if you are around, it is at Ueno Park. We can also meet up, as I am in Tokyo at the moment !

My son🐾🐶 Bernie wanted me to send a reminder to all of our heroes 😇who have lost their lives to defend us. I also would like to acknowledge the heroes that don't get acknowledged publicly and or don't have an official holiday. You know who you are, #RealMVP I know who you are and we TRULY thank YOU🙏😍💖🙏#teamworkmakesthedreamwork #STARKidz #reelmikejones #mbennz #memorialdayweekend #memorialday #humanrights #dachshund #heros #starchild #rockyourhair #RYHFamily💖 #ruthless #remember #dachshundsofinstagram #doxies

A sextape being leaked after a breakup is a disgraced but a common sight in my God's own country..
.
Most times it's the guy's revenge or maybe someone playing in between, nonetheless it's the fairer sex that pays the price
.
Once the video turns viral & trust me it does all the time, the girl ends her life..
.
Trust me, to be an Outcast or being Hunted is never a position you'd ever wish to be in..Not preaching that the Couples shouldnt have fun or 'live the moment' but this ..it's indeed a dirty move & Often before the Society's crude remarks,it's the thoughts of that Girl that kills her first..
.
If you ever find you in such a position, please know ending your life for a temporary problem is not a permanent solution.. Stay Strong..Live and Prove it .!!

Presenting my 5th post in the "Annora" series

അലിഞ്ഞതാ ചിരിയിലോ..
മുഴുവനായി മൂടും കരുതലിലോ..
നിൻ നിറപാതി എന്നെന്നും ഞാനെന്ന ഓർമ്മയിൽ
ഋതുവിൽ മാറുന്ന പൂ കണക്കേ
പതിയേ നിന്നിൽ അലിഞ്ഞ്‌ പോയി ഞാനും..
ഉള്ളിൽ നിറയുന്ന നീ എന്ന കാമത്തെ തടുത്തില്ല ഞാൻ; തന്നു ഞാനെന്നെ നിനക്കായി മുഴുവനും നേടിയത്‌ നീയെന്ന സ്വർഗ്ഗമെന്നോണം..
തരത്തിനു കൂട്ടർക്കായ്‌ എന്നെ നീ വിറ്റിടുമ്പോൾ തകർന്നു ഞാൻ, തരിപ്പായി പൊലിഞ്ഞു ഞാൻ..
'വൈറൽ' എന്നൊരോമനപ്പേരെന്നെ നിർവചിച്ചു..
വളർത്തിയ മനസ്സുകൾ അപമാനത്തിൽ വെന്തുനീറുമ്പോളും കാൺകെ പൊള്ളുന്നൊരീ ദെഹത്തേ വെന്തെരിക്കുവാൻ കഴിയാതേ തളരുന്നു ഞാൻ..
വഴിപ്പെഴപ്പായി തള്ളൂംമ്പ്പളും ഓർത്തു ഞാൻ.. ഭോഗിച്ചത്‌ അവനെ മാത്രമായിരുന്നു..അവനിൽ മാത്രവും..
ഊറിച്ചിരിക്കുന്ന കണ്ണുകളേക്കാൾ ആത്മാർതഥത ഈ കുരുക്കിനോട്‌ എനിക്കിന്ന് തോന്നുന്നു..
ഏറുമെൻ ചിതറിയ ചിന്തകൾ എന്നെ കോന്നിടുന്നതിനു മുന്നേ ഞാൻ അവയേ കൊന്നിടട്ടെ ...

"When, at some point in our lives, we meet a real tragedy — which could happen to any one of us — we can react in two ways. Obviously, we can lose hope, let ourselves slip into discouragement, into alcohol, drugs, and unending sadness. Or else we can wake ourselves up, discover in ourselves an energy that was hidden there, and act with more clarity, more force."—14th Dalai Lama

{Image description - Content Warning: Violent Islamaphobia. tweet @/kumailn: “2 heroes defending Muslim women were murdered by a white supremacist in Portland. The below never would be said if the perpetrator wasn’t white.” Underneath is a clip from a news article that reads, “‘We don’t know if (the suspect) has mental-health issues or was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or all fo the above,’ Simpson said.” The next post is a FaceBook post from Asha Deliveranc that reads, “Taliesin Myrddian Namakai Meche, My dear baby boy passed on yesterday while protecting two young Muslim girls from a racist man on the train in Portland. He was a hero and will remain a hero on the other side of the veil. Shining bright star I love you forever. A photo of one of the victims is below. The next slide shows a photo shared by George Takei of the two victims with the caption, “Ricky Best and Taliesin Namakai-Meche. Remember them and honor their courage.”}

Here's a post from the mother of one of the heroes who died defending two Muslim girls yesterday in Portland. Let's make him famous. #RIP #portland #oregon #islamaphobia #taliesin #humanity #humanrights #muslimrightsarehumanrights #hero #justicedemocrats #justicedemocrats_newjersey #endwhitesupremacy #endhate #spreadlove

"The powerful thing about a soothing box is that it is a compilation of things we love all in one place. Ideally, we can carry our boxes with us wherever we go...encourag[ing] us to be intentional with helping ourselves, taking responsibility for our emotions, and being mindful of our wonderful bodies." @mosaiceye As originally posted on @gooey_girl

Blackboards

Blackboards from both local and refugee students are displayed on a classroom floor in Diffa, Niger.

The school welcomes around 30 refugees, who fled their country because of Boko Haram.
Schools in Diffa teach students from the local host communities and Nigerian refugees. Classes are taught in French, meaning that Nigerian children who speak only their local language and English (Nigeria’s national language) must learn a new language.

"Fast 100 Jahre lang, von 1872 bis 1969, stand Sex unter Männern in Deutschland unter Strafe. Der 175, erstmals in Kraft getreten mit dem Strafgesetzbuch für das Deutsche Reich, stellte fest: 'Die widernatürliche Unzucht, welche zwischen Personen männlichen Geschlechts oder von Menschen mit Thieren begannen wird, ist mit Gefängniß zu bestrafen.' 1935 wurde der Paragraf von den Nationalsozialisten verschärft, die Strafen erhöht. Nach 1945 wurde eben diese Fassung von der Bundesrepublik weiter angewendet. Anstatt homosexuelle KZ-Häftlinge als Opfer des Nationalsozialismus anzuerkennen, wurden manche von ihnen von Neuem ins Gefängnis gesteckt, um ihre 'Reststrafe' abzusitzen. (...) Erst ein Rechtsgutachten aus dem Jahr 2016, in Auftrag gegeben von der Anti-Diskriminierungsstelle des Bundes, stellte klar: Eine Rehabilitierung war nicht nur rechtlich möglich, sondern sogar geboten, eine Pflicht des Staates. Im Juli soll es so weit sein, wenn Bundestag und Bundesrat sich sputen, der Bundespräsident zügig unterschreibt. Fritz Schmehling hofft jedenfalls, dass er die Aufhebung seines Urteils noch erlebt. Schmehling, weißer Bart, rote Bäckchen, Ohrring rechts, fängt dieser Tage seine dritte Chemo an,..."

Saba, 7, was born and lives in the dark corridors of a derelict hotel in Georgia. Born a refugee, or IDP (Internally displaced person), Saba's parents arrived here 24 years ago, forced to flee the northern state of Abkhazia due to civil war and eventual annexation by Russia. Over 250,000 people fled across the Caucasus mountains in winter, with many of them living in the same tragic circumstance today, as they found themselves in all those years ago.
