The UK has a moral obligation to save people who are fleeing from war and persecution. It is as simple as that. We can discuss the modalities, but our generosity in welcoming them should not raise a single eyebrow.
New data, with help from Google, illustrate unprecedented -- and until now, largely overlooked -- forest loss in Southeast Asia and West Africa, among other hotspots.
Carsi, one of Turkey's largest, if not its largest, fan group has long campaigned for social justice related issues, and played in 2013 a key role in the biggest anti-government protests since Mr. Erdogan's rise to power in 2003.
Not that there's anything wrong with London, but Hopper wanted to find you some other places to fly in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales! Some are large cities, other tiny dot-sized villages hidden in the rolling countryside.
