Rice Not Bullets! Filipino Community and Allies Protest Massacre of Drought-Stricken Mindanao Farmers at the Philippine Consulate
I find it hard to wrap my brain around the fact that this and other crisis of humanity around the globe are now on the increase and no one talks about the 6th extinction. What is triggering these migrations and crop failures and heath collapse on the global scale is the extinction and no one ties the 2 together. It's just a drought here or there, a flood here or there, sea life washing up on shores everywhere and oh we don't know what is causing these die-off's. Very few lend a hand or show compassion, the mind-set of greed is firmly entrenched everywhere. How very sad.
