"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

you know why.

What I Need 
The $800 goal 

Would fund my transportation from NJ to St Louis, my lodging and meals while in St Louis. As well as printed materials to be distributed at rallies/protests.

The Impact
To support the development of mass self-managed organizations in the community that can address the murder of Mike Brown.

To help create a sustainable movement that can address struggles of police brutality, racial profiling,housing,transportation, pollution, welfare rights, and the issues of the day. 

Political ideas and strategies need to be informed by practical experience. This means that the political organization needs to bring together activists who are rooted in working class communities and their mass organizations and struggles. Through our active presence we can learn from others. Through our participation and organizing activity, and the influence of our ideas, we can build a social base to not only have DEMANDS MET but to CREATE REAL CHANGE.

We must defend Ferguson.

Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:

Ask folks to get the word out and make some noise about this campaign by using the gofundme share tools!

William Shakespeare’s Timon Athens performed by the Los Angeles Drama Club / Shakespeare in the City. These are mostly underprivileged kids from an underfunded and underserved who have been given an opportunity to break out of their hard situations.

Check out LADC at

I was moved seeing these young children performing Shakespeare with such animation, enthusiasm, and skill.

Actual things that should be done with plantations

elegantly-tasteless:

-burn them all to the ground

- sacred museums telling the actual history of slavery not glorifying the lives of slave owners

-genetic testing/ ancestry mapping sites for Black Americans
