Canada's Lost Women - Al Jazeera English Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Canada's Lost Women - Al Jazeera English: Since the 1980s, over 1,000 indigenous women have been murdered in this developed North American nation, yet, according to campaigners and human rights groups, too few of these cases have resulted in arrests or prosecution.

Amid mounting claims of official indifference to the problem that some say has its roots in racism and the country's colonial past, People & Power asks why police and the government are not doing more to tackle crimes against Canada's first nation females.

Trigger Happy Chicago Cops Still Run the City - New America Media Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Trigger Happy Chicago Cops Still Run the City - New America Media: An irate Sam Adam Jr., another of Jones’ lawyers, said the police didn’t clean up her blood after killing her. Adam invited reporters inside the home to see the dried blood.

The comments shocked the already angry crowd who wore “Black Lives Matter” buttons, “[Chicago Mayor] Rahm [Emanuel]Has Failed Us” t-shirts and passed out fliers with the headline “Outrage” in bold black type that related the deadly shooting of Jones and Quintonio LeGrier, Jones’ upstairs neighbor. Some of the protesters carried a cloth poster with the names and faces of black men shot to death by police. Many said if they call the police for help, the police will kill them.

The entire event played out as neighbors stood on their porches with their arms folded, shaking their heads in disbelief. Police were nowhere to be seen in the neighborhood, which is a mix of African American and Hispanic residents living in frame, brick and stone buildings.

Historic 'Comfort Women' Agreement Still Requires Action | Wilson Center Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Historic 'Comfort Women' Agreement Still Requires Action | Wilson Center: One place to start is to discourage elected officials from criticizing the agreement. While Japan is a democracy with a broad spectrum of views, criticisms by elected officials and government appointees of previously-issued apologies have suggested inconsistency if not duplicity in Japanese attitudes towards the “comfort women” issue. The Prime Minister should also carefully reconsider the advisability of visits to the controversial Yasukuni Shrine and the government approval of revisionist textbooks that whitewash Japan’s imperial legacies. These actions will speak louder than any words.

Human Research Loopholes: Alive and Well | Electronic Frontier Foundation Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Human Research Loopholes: Alive and Well | Electronic Frontier Foundation: The Common Rule was created in 1991 as an outgrowth of the Belmont Report, a series of ethical and principles and guidelines created by the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research to address issues raised by the Tuskegee experiment. The Common Rule claims to strike a balance between the three goals identified in the Belmont Report: 1) respecting persons, 2) ‘beneficence’ (i.e., maximizing the social value of science and research), and 3) justice.

This federal policy purportedly binds the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and numerous other agencies, including the CIA and Department of Homeland Security (per Executive Order 12333). But as we’ve seen, these agencies are adept at honing in on small loopholes, so the proposed language needs a serious edit if it is going to provide any real protection.

EFF filed a comment when HHS first proposed this update in 2011, and we are drafting a new comment laying out our biggest concerns to file by January 6, 2016.
