Pakistan On Crossroads - Deadly Clashes During Anti-government Protests
Islamabad, August 30, 2014
Since mid-August, the anti-government protests continue against the Pakistani government in Islamabad. Now they are entering a new stage as there had been first fatalities.
At the beginning of the protests the opposition groups marched to Islamabad to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. They claim that the 2013 election that brought Sharif into power was rigged and accuse him of massive voter fraud as well as mass corruption.
After holding more than two weeks of demonstrations outside the nearby parliament, the opposition leaders decided to move towards the home of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The clashes between demonstrators and riot police outside the prime minister’s residence on Sunday left three dead and more than 400 injured as police used tear gas, rubber bullets and batons against the demonstrators what caused the protests turning violent.
Pakistani opposition leader and former cricket player Imran Khan called “all democracy-loving Pakistanis” to join the protest and “continue to the last breath”.
The situation remains critical, as Sharif continues to ignore demands that he leave office. Also the role of the military is still questionable, as there might be hints of a possible military intervention, but no clear positioning on which side the military might take action.

if you seriously cannot tell the different between “i hate the group that i am oppressing” and “i hate the group that is oppressing me” you need to sit down and shut up
"i hate trans people" is not the same as "i hate cis people"
"i hate a group of people so i’m going to kill, rape, judge, and oppress them" is not the same as "wow, i hate the group that continues to kill, rape, judge, and oppress me and people like me"
do you think pelicans have any kind of culture or lore. are there any traditions that are passed down each generation, or does their language exist solely to convey needs, wants, warnings, and orders in the present. are they capable of understanding the life-death cycle and helping future generations to survive by sharing the knowledge they have acquired over their lifetimes
Sasuke scoffed and glared at the girl standing before him. “Sharpay Evans. I know you were the one who ordered my older brother to destroy my clan. For that, you shall die!” He roared, closing his eyes and activating his Sharingan. ” I WILL AVENGE MY FAMILY!”
"I’d love to see you try, sasuke"

Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.
