Essential International Issues from Human Rights Watch (Less Well Known Issues)

I've been away for some time for solitude in meditation and programming work, but now I'm back with more resources. Yes, maybe it's a bit lazy to only copy links, but I feel I can't explain most things to the level that experts make it to be. I simply follow my gut on which experts are needed. Not exactly sure why my intuition is being led to certain issues, honestly not being very informed about certain countries myself, but I can feel something, really. Not sure what to call it, but "scholar's intuition."

 

This list excludes American, Canadian, British and Australian issues to raise more awareness outside mainstream world news.** Please try to read anyway, even if news outside those regions seem "boring" and "dry" to you because it is unrelated to your everyday life. Thank you! Human Rights Watch is an international non-profit for fighting human rights, and you are free to send some financial donations if you're interested in helping. Even a tiny amount may make a difference. At the very least, send some love to these countries in meditation, to spread some higher vibrations along their way.

 

Warning : May contain some very heartbreaking reports of human rights abuses such as violence or discrimination. Continue at your own discretion.

It's not included for my "scholar's intuition" at the moment as "urgent to know" but feel free to visit my own country -- The Philippines' page, simply because it personally feels awkward to me that people here know more about American issues than the rest of the world knows about this country, so thought I at least mention it.

I'm cautious of the Human Rights Watch I don't feel as if they are a truly reliable source for this type of information... They probably get some stuff right but I've just seen where they're willing to except funds from some shady characters and are known to be extremely biased towards "first world" countries. 

 

I'd just take everything from HRW with a grain of salt.
