Venezuelan Situation (English HD Version) by Alessandra Carolina Sironi Malave
Watch this video if you’re unsure of the current events happening in Venezuela and please reblog to spread awareness. The Venezuelan government is controlling major television outlets and has shut down Twitter in order to silence their citizens from reporting their injustices.

My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love legos but I don’t like that there are more Lego boy people and barely any Lego girls.
Today I went to a store and saw legos in two sections the girls pink and the boys blue. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks.
I want you to make more Lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!
New York City’s iconic St. Patrick’s Day parade has long upheld that pro-gay signs and banners are not allowed, but that hasn’t stopped many public officials and politicians from participating.
But this year, Mayor Bill de Blasio says he won’t march in the parade — the first NYC mayor in decades to sit out. And he’s not quiet about his reasoning.
"I will be participating in a number of other events to honor the Irish heritage of this city," said de Blasio on Tuesday during an unrelated press conference at City Hall. "But I simply disagree with the organizers of that parade." …
Though de Blasio’s predecessor, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, was a staunch supporter of same-sex marriage rights, he still marched in the Fifth Avenue parade all 12 years he was in office. Rudolph Giuliani also participated every year he was mayor.
