Tools of protest: Disobedient Objects, the V&A's subversive new show 23.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
From the pan lid that helped topple four presidents to the giant inflatable cobblestone that leaves police baffled, a fascinating new exhibition celebrates the most unlikely protest objects Blow-up cobblestones and tiki trucks: defiant protest designs in pictures A battered pan lid sits next to a crudely printed teacup, alongside other odds and ends that look more like the sort of stuff you'd pick up in a jumble sale than exhibits you'd expect to see at a national museum. Yet these humble bits and bobs, on show at the V&A in London, have helped to win rights, change laws and even topple governments. The teacup, which is stamped with what looks at first glance like a shonky counterfeit Starbucks logo, actually bears the emblem of the Women's Social and Political Union it was designed by Sylvia Pankhurst and deployed as a way of bringing the suffragette campaign into the genteel heart of Edwardian drawing rooms. Meanwhile, the misshapen lid was used on the streets of Buenos Aires in 2001 , one of ...

Dear White People is one of the most topical, important and hilarious comedies of the year, and as the trailer shows, has an an excellent series of tongue-in-cheek jokes where the lead character uses a radio show to start debate about prevalent racist culture.  The story follows four black students and their wider group of friends at a white Ivy League school. The trailer expands on what we can expect from the plot and the ensemble cast.  The cast includes Teyonah Parris as Coco, who seizes on the controversy to further her broadcast career, and Tyler James Williams as Lionel, who is recruited to write undercover on the mostly white student paper. Tessa Thompson plays Sam, who is a radical activist and uses her campus radio show to broadcast decrees that begin with the opener “Dear white people", and draws attention to the racist behaviour her white friends engage in. The movie will definitely start conversations about racism and engage people about their behaviour across the globe.  Watch the video ...

BJP takes to the streets of Bangalore in protest of sexual abuse case 22.7.2014 DNA: India
The case of sexual abuse of a six year old in Bangalore took on national political overtones on Monday as students from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party accused a state government run by the country's main opposition of inaction. Hundreds of students from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) youth wing protested in India's IT capital of Bangalore after a school coach was detained over an alleged attack on a 6-year-old girl that had prompted protests by parents for several days. Once a taboo topic in India, sex crimes have become front-page news following a series of brutal rapes and murders. They have also become political minefields after the former national government led by the Congress party seemed slow to react to a surge of public anger after a 2012 gang rape in Delhi. About 300 BJP student activists waved flags, shouted slogans and tried to break through metal police barricades outside the Bangalore school where the roller skating coach was suspected of assaulting the girl. The coach has not been ...
