[3 part video-Swipe] Being a dark skinned person in the Philippines is like wearing a sign that says "SHOOT ME". This is how our indigenous people are treated. The aetas are from the first wave of migration of the Philippines and are related to melanesians. These people are not shown at all. The face of the Filipino has been reduced to white washed mestizos and Europeans. They will not show you these people. Hell, they still do black face in their commericals and have a huge skin whitening market. This is perpetuated by Spanish colonialism. I like to educate on my people because education is power. We are racially Asian, even though we have an black apperance. The other dark skinned communities of Asia have either been exterminated, or that suppressed, that no one knows of their existence. I was always told I was "too dark to be Filipino", when by all means, the aeta population entered the Philippines around 40-60,000 years ago from Asia, while 90% of the modern population migrated from Taiwan about 5,000 years ago. How ironic is it for indigenous people to be banished in their own land and told that theyre the outsiders.

Beatrice Hunter, a Labrador woman sent to jail this week after she told the court she could not promise to obey an injunction against protesting at Muskrat Falls, is now behind bars at Her Majesty's Penitentiary (HMP) in St. John's. With no female correctional facility in Labrador, Hunter is just the latest woman to end up in the province's largest male prison. "It's definitely a problem. It's very challenging. She's clearly not in a good space, she's probably not very comfortable where she is and she doesn't have the supports that would be essential." "There's no need or reason that a non-violent individual would be held in a ... place such as prison," she said.
Though Hunter was given the option by a judge to avoid prison time if she agreed to stay away from Muskrat Falls, Ricciardelli thinks more alternatives should have been made available. Being sent to prison far away from home also places an undue burden on families of inmates like Hunter, said Ricciardelli. Hunter lives in Hopedale, located in northern Labrador, more than 1,000 kilometres from St. John's. 'She's in there with murderers'
