Damon Leff of the Pagan Rights Alliance (South Africa) and Touchstone Advocacy joins RevKess and KaliSara during the 8th annual 30 Days of Advocacy Against Witch Hunts. The persecution of "witches" in South Africa and elsewhere around the world is real. The majority of the victims of these witch hunts are old women and young children. Damon will talk about the history of this program and the impact that it has had in South Africa as well as what the persecutions are about.
The Inquisition and the Salem Witch Craze are far behind us in Europe and North America, but the danger of their legacy exist to this day. Find out what these modern day witch hunts are and how they are having dangerous effects on the people persecuted.
This is Damon's third visit with the Pagan Weekly News. He joined Zaracon and RevKess in 2012 and 2013. Zaracon may join in the discussion.
Why do we have so much contraversy around Breastfeeding? One of the reasons is the way women's bosies have been objectified and subjectified. Showing women's nipples in public has such shame attached to it - as Janet Jackson found out at the Super bowl when her nipple slipped out of her top. Women are covering their babies in a quest to cover themselves while breastfeeding in public - almost seems like a step backwards in liberating ourselves. Advocacy plays an important role in liberating us from taboos that no longer serve us. Today we talk breastfeeding & advocacy with Derek Forgie, a Canadian comedian and active advocate for breastfeeding and a whole lot more! He posted a very passionate rant entitled "Superbowl vs My Wifes Breasts" that went viral. You will hear it here but it's a must to watch https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153051548929836

On this episode of Life Full Circle Radio, we will discuss the overall methods of change. Is it best to use social advocacy, economic empowerment or both.
We've have just came out of Black History Month and the commmeration of #Selma50. At the same time we have the issues of the #SAE racist rants, another #Ferguson shooting and The killing of #TonyRobinson in Madison, WI. Our country seems to be a powder keg right now, with a short fuse. All this is going on while our economy is rebounding. Most of America is simply watching this unrest like a movie on TV, instead of it being many peoples lives.
We will talk about this convergance of Social Advocacy and Economic Empowerment with Anthony Butler from the E3 Business Group.

After immigrating to Queens, New York, Marisol has suffered alone and in silence at the hands of her abusive and cheating husband for years. Now pregnant with her second child, her desperation to save her young son and soon-expected daughter from this hell has reached its breaking point. The catalysts that finally make Marisol muster up the courage to escape are the words from her son, “Mom, get us out of here”, and the encouragement of her neighbor, Gladys. One night, she wakes her son while her husband is asleep. They escape with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Marisol is all alone in a new country with no means of support, but she knows she must find the strength to make a better future for her children.
