La nouvelle vague du féminisme a touché de nombreux pays d'Amérique du Sud, mais les mouvements états-uniens ne sont pas en reste, à la croisée d'autres mouvements sociaux. Dans ce manifeste pour un féminisme des 99%, trois des organisatrices de la Grève internationale des femmes posent les bases d'un féminisme qui cherche à faire converger l'anticapitalisme, l'antiracisme, l'écologie politique, l'internationalisme et l'anti-hétérosexisme.

‘There are few gay people in India': stigma lingers despite legal victory
A landmark ruling legalised gay sex in the country in 2018, yet the LGBT community still face stigma and violence
When India's supreme court announced it was legalising gay sex, people hugged in twos and threes on the lawns outside the Delhi courthouse. They draped themselves in rainbow flags in Bangalore and released balloons into the sky. In Mumbai's nightclubs, they danced all night.

Pervez Hoodbhoy: What is it that Pakistan wants anyway?
India could have dealt with Kashmir differently. But Imran Khan must realise that Jaish-e-Mohammed and others of its ilk are not the answer.
The release of captured Indian fighter pilot Abhinandan Varthaman on March 1 is excellent news: Pakistan's gesture that it wants to de-escalate a crisis that put the world on edge. Equally, this act conveys confidence that Pakistan has had the upper hand in a conflict not of its own choosing. Pakistani war rhetoric, though disturbingly loud, was less (...)

Britain – March 23rd People's Vote demonstration on Brexit: A million on the streets of London
There's no doubt that some of the most high-profile people involved in organising and speaking at the March 23rd People's Vote demonstration comprise a real rogues' gallery writes Andy Stowe.
