In brief:

The defeat of an energy company by indigenous activists shows what nonviolent unity can accomplish. There are lessons here as we enter a challenging new age.

Running:

* ‘I have never felt so terrified’: Harassment of female runners a gendered issue with no simple solution (2016-Dec-05) [ABC]

❝A recent study by Runner’s World found that 43 per cent of female runners experienced harassment at least sometimes — compared with just 4 per cent of men.
The study also found that 63 per cent of women ran where they felt it was unlikely they would encounter a person who might harm them, and 41 per cent ran where they thought they would be less likely to received unsolicited attention.
For men, the figures were 23 per cent and 9 per cent, respectively.
Thirty per cent of women reported being followed by someone — and 18 per cent had been sexually propositioned while out running.❞

Seriously, WTAF people?
