Defend Gay Conversion Therapy

We, the undersigned, consider that Theresa May's proposed ban on offering therapy, healing or prayer for people wishing to be free of same-sex attraction is an attack on freedom of speech, on freedom of choice, on freedom of association, and inasmuch as Christianity may form the backdrop to a desire to be free from same-sex desires, or may constitute an element of the healing process offered, on religious freedom. We call upon Members of Parliament to reject this attempt to to criminalise ideas.

This was not a stray or abandoned animal. It was kept like this on the owners’ property, literally withering away to skin and bone in front of their eyes. They could have brought it to the SPCA – or at the very least turned it loose so it could try to scavenge some scraps fr

SAVE SUVILAHTI DIY!

(English text below) Suvilahden skeittiparkki on purku-uhan alla Kalasataman alueen uudistuksessa ja tämä on ehdottomasti estettävä!   Suvilahti DIYn kaltaiset yhteisöllisesti rakennetut vapaat toimintaympäristöt tekevät kaupungista huomattavasti geneeristä ympäristöä kiinnostavamman ja valovoimaisemman. Tämän päivän kovinta valuuttaa ovat yhteisöllisyys, tarinat ja käsityöläisyys ja sitä kautta syntynyt kulttuurillinen arvo - niitä kaikkia Suvilahden skeittiparkissa on huomattavia määriä suhte
