CURRENT GLOBAL POLITICAL MAYHEM STATUS

  • Turkey: A peaceful protest which started to protect a park in Taksim turned into a whole chaos because of police's brutality. People started to protest against government and PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Police is using guns, water tanks and gases against people.
  • Brazil: Massive Nation-Wide protests and riots caused by, among other factors, monetary focus on the World Cup and Olympics instead of the well-being of the populace
  • Venezuela: Massive protests and riots caused by unjust elections and violation of democratic rights
  • United States: Texas state law passed despite being voted on after a deadline and being protested by both the people and a state Senator. Protests at the senate growing, and law enforcement called in. - The Voting Rights Act of 1965 has been declared inert in the US i.e people of color can be barred from voting.
  • Australia: Leadership ballot being called in 2 hours for the third time during the Prime Minister's leadership as to whether or not she will continue as leader of the ALP, her party. UPDATED: Rudd has beaten Gillard in the leadership vote, and is now Australia's Prime Minister. Again.
  • United Kingdom: Government will ban Church of England and Church of Wales from offering same-sex marriage.
  • Greece: Trans*people and sex workers are being rounded up in concentration camps
  • Russia: Government creating anti-homosexuality policies threatening the safety of all LGBT*Q Russians.
  • New Zealand: Gay marriage legalized and everyone has a chance at life.
  • THIS IS LITERALLY JUST WHAT I REMEMBERED OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. ADD THINGS, CORRECT ME, ETC.
