While some good news, it doesn't take away from the fact that they continue to manufacture weapons of war for police, civilians, and the military. . "Colt Firearms will be ending its production and sales of its AR-15 rifles due to lack of public demand amid excess market capacity.  Colt released a statement on Thursday to clarify the decision, which was made because the company simply isn’t selling enough of the rifles in the civilian marketplace to continue devoting the resources into it — a pattern that may be attributed to Colt rifles’ $1,000+ price tag and a market supplied with lower priced competitors.  Colt President and CEO Dennis Veilleux said, “The fact of the matter is that over the last few years, the market for modern sporting rifles has experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity. Given this level of manufacturing capacity, we believe there is adequate supply for modern sporting rifles for the foreseeable future.” Veilleux added that Colt is seeing high demand in its military and law enforcement sales. “On the other hand, our warfighters and law enforcement personnel continue to demand Colt rifles and we are fortunate enough to have been awarded significant military and law enforcement contracts.  Currently, these high-volume contracts are absorbing all of Colt’s manufacturing capacity for rifles,” he said.
Vincent Tremeau is a photographer based in Dakar, Senegal, whose work focuses on raising awareness around humanistic issues across the globe. His ongoing series of portraits, One Day, I Will, asks displaced children living in refugee camps a single question: What do you want to be when you grow up? Tremeau follows this question by asking each child to build a costume designed after their chosen profession. “I remember a girl who started crying as she told me her story. So I began to think of how I could tell the stories of these children in a way that would focus on possibilities for their future rather than trauma of the past and daily survival.” The result is a powerful series of images that capture the dreams and ambitions of the world’s youth.

Welcome to connect me to a refugee! We a new opening running business which supports refugees from all over the world who are in need or even up for a chat. Our aim is to support refugees in need, so as for this we have created a community centre in Auburn which focuses on help towards others. Across the following weeks we will be leading some sessions in the night to whoever wants to come! Some of these sessions include mental health sessions, and opening up to others as well some free food for night! One of the biggest problems faced in today’s society refugees coming into the country by themselves. From this all refugees will be  able to reunite and feel a sense of belonging to relate to others whom are in the same position. Through this we will also be excepting volunteers to help, everyone is welcome!  #refugees #everyoneswelcome #spreadthelove #feelfree #sharestories #anyoneofanykind

@refugees Which picture moves you the most? ⁣ ⁣ In 2018, an average of 37,000 people were forced to flee their homes every day because of conflict and persecution. By the end of the year, there were a total of 70.8 million people forcibly displaced due to persecution, conflict and violence worldwide. ⁣ ⁣ These are not just numbers; they are millions of stories that need to be told. ⁣ ⁣ RefugiARTE is an exhibition of editorial cartoons from Latin American artists that illustrate the journey of people who often risk their lives traveling by land or sea to reach safety. Launched in 2015 in Buenos Aires to promote positive messages and generate empathy towards refugees among the general public, it has travelled to 13 countries, all across the Americas. ⁣ ⁣ Throughout September 2019, it will be displayed in Geneva, Switzerland in front of the Palais Wilson, a strategic location and true legacy for human rights in history. ⁣ ⁣ We invite you to discover this remarkable exhibition by scrolling through the photos above, which takes you on a journey that so many have taken without the possibility of looking back.

Uma iniciativa de impacto social positivo é aquela que busca transformar uma realidade, pessoas que querem fazer do mundo um lugar mais para se (con)viver, assim é a  @donadodoce nossa mais nova parceira. Uma empresa familiar que tem como carro chefe, as bolachinhas gourmet feitas artesanalmente e que nos remete o melhor sabor do passado, da nossa avó, tia e aquele cheirinho doce pela casa. . Um dia perguntei para um sírio, que ainda mora por lá e enfrenta os traumas que a guerra lhe causou, o quê ele mais sentia falta. Ele me disse que era do aroma das bolachinhas mamol, receita Síria que a avó passou para mãe dele e que deixava a casa com aroma doce e perfumado com gosto de afeto e amor. Ele falava com amor e dor, porque não era só a saudade, mas  a falta do afeto...nunca mais ia poder sentir aquele gosto, aquele prazer novamente, havia perdido toda sua família e sua casa, enfim toda referência do passado. . Engraçado que quando provei a bolacha na Dona do Doce, lembrei na hora desta conversa com Hassan, porque além de ser gostosa me remeteu a a viajar  no passado, sentir o sabor agradável da infância e do afeto, me veio à mente as minhas recordações  com um doce sabor, ali voltava o paladar da minha infância, pensei em  Hassam... e acredito no resgate de suas memórias com alegria.  O melhor é saber que a @donadodoce, nos deu a oportunidade de trazer as nossas famílias o resgate do afeto e do passado com doce sabor e tornar este momento afetivo alegre. Agradecemos por ter “gente” ao nosso lado com a mesma visão e missão, isso é verdadeiro, uma parceria do bem para o bem ❤️❤️❤️ Agradecemos a Dona  do Doce, também por todas as vagas de emprego para  que nossas mulheres possam se integrar  e ter melhores condições. . Mais uma vez falamos aqui de jovens otimistas e preparadas para mudar o mundo. Conhecemos a @aurora_dvine e @paulinhamaldonado jovens maravilhosas, capazes de empreender promover  o desenvolvimento pessoal

The ASRC stands together with the students and communities to address the climate crisis our world is experiencing right now.  The connection between climate change and population movement is serious and impacts us all. Predictions are climate change will create the biggest refugee crisis the world has seen. More and more people across the globe will be displaced and will need to seek refuge to protect their families and themselves wherever they can, including Australia.  Today we support the Global Climate Strike feeling very hopeful our youth is capable of helping us all to change.  See you at Treasury Gardens at 2 pm!  #ss4c #globalclimatestrike #climatestrike #refugees #asylumseekers #refugeeswelcome #charityaustralia #charity #australia #melbourne #australiancharity #ngo #nonforprofit #asrc #humanrights #humanity #climatecrisis #savetheearth

Can’t wrap my head around the fact that I am going to #australia for the first time ever AND I’m going there for a private screening of The Forgotten documentary! I’m so excited!  October 26 - Melbourne  November 2 - Queensland
Turns out, small town America is pretty cool. This is a town of diversity. The Presbyterian Church created a garden with plots for refugees here from Somali, Uganda, and many more places. Students at the high school speak 28 different languages. Good people doing things that make a difference. Thanks @cgnocal for showing me all around your new home and opening my eyes to small town America. .  Any recommendations out there for other small towns to visit? .  #gardencity #kansas #diversity #refugees #smalltown #vanlife #roadtripusa

When news first broke out that @lenadunham would be adapting the screenplay for Melisa Fleming’s heart wrenching and empathetic book, I was actually more optimistic than most of my peers. The source material is incredibly rich and detailed, and I had insider info that Lena was working with Doaa - the subject of the book herself - to pen the script. I felt although it wasn’t ideal, it would elevate the stories of Syrians in a space that could potentially impact the world. However, I’m heartbroken and disappointed that it appears they will also be placing Lena in the director’s chair. This is frightening and disappointing, in an Industry where specific opportunities like this seldom arise for marginalized voices to be heard, they are putting this deep and sensitive story in the hands of someone who is not from our community, and will not be capable of understanding and executing the nuances of our culture which are learned from BIRTH. @jjabramsofficial and @amblin it is not too late for you to right this wrong. Pair Lena with Syrian talent. Give this story the authenticity it deserves. This is not a payout, don’t cash in on our pain. We want this story told, but we want it done right. #syria #syrian #refugees #stevenspielberg #authenticity
