365 days for women, not just one day: UKPP, India

The Uttarakhand Parivartan Party (UKPP) believes that the women are as integral and as important as the men are to a society as all humans are equal and no human is superior or inferior to other human. At the same time, UKPP is aware of the social, economic and political realities across the globe and knows fully well that in several societies, including the Indian society, women still are not treated on equal footing.

International Women’s Day is a call to recognise inequality

As a Member of Parliament human rights is the fundamental lens through which I make decisions. And it is the deepest responsibility I hold for New Zealand, for our global family and for future generations. International Women’s Day is a call for action to us all. Starting simply, perhaps, by asking oneself “what is my personal relationship with inequality? Where do I experience it? Why do I care, or not? What can I do?” These are sincere questions.

The agony of Gaza – What price is the right of self-defence?

by Kennedy Graham

As I write, the conflict in Gaza has seen yet another ceasefire deal squandered, with more death and destruction. Israel has repeatedly claimed its right to self-defence as justification for ‘Operation Protective Edge’. That claim is supported by leading Western powers, including the US, EU and UK.

Kennedy Graham's speech on the Government motion on the situation in Gaza

Israel justifies its actions in Gaza in the name of self-defence. The inherent right of self-defence, sanctioned in international law for several centuries now, does not justify what Israel is currently doing in Gaza. Most jurists around the world are describing the Israeli actions as an excessive use of force and a violation of humanitarian law.
