RESIST Day #64: What You Can Do Today

Current news headlines

It's worth remembering that during the last famine in 2011-2012, around 250,000 people died. Today, the Somalis are facing a much worse famine than ever. It's about time to prevent these tragedies by holding the so-called leaders responsible for these man-made famines.

In these news updates, I post all kinds of headlines and titles published on the Horn of Africa and on the Somali diaspora. Although Somaliland is politically distinct from neighboring countries, nevertheless there are many issues the entire Somali region as a whole shares due to ecology, culture and history. For example, Somaliland shares with Somalia and other neighbouring countries many challenges and issues, including recurring drought, famine, militant terrorism, internally displaced refugees, climate change, charcoal use and its export which is now banned by the UN, human trafficking 'tahriib', illegal fishing, waste dumping and piracy, remittances 'hawallas', FGM and many others. After the initial posting, some of these links are available in the News archives.
