2 jours 9 heures ago

“The junta started its reign in a brutal and bloody way, it was however recognised by Emmanuel Macron, present at the funeral of Idriss Déby Itno.

Islamic regime shaken by unprecedented revolt

5 jours 3 heures ago

The movement was highly politicized from the start, and it was no longer a purely protest movement.”

Turning history on its head, these activists sometimes say they hope to inspire women in the United States to defend their own reproductive rights.”
