Muslims In Libya Condemn Violence, Apologize To Americans

Buzzfeed

#of course the news won’t show this #no they’ll just keep stating over and over that the US is sending two warships to the area #because that is more important than showing Americans that not all Muslims are evil like they already believe#because that would be asking too much of the media

"The words “human rights” sound absolutely nonsensical in the DPRK where the dignity and independent rights of the working masses are fully guaranteed legally and institutionally."
-

Article in a North Korean newspaper (quoted here) in response to South Korea declaring September as “North Korean Human Rights Month.”

Meanwhile, here are some translated drawings by a North Korean prison camp survivor and defector (source):

It is difficult to determine the accuracy of the translations and the authenticity of these drawings, but they match many testimonies from survivors, refugees, and defectors from North Korea.

The website of a Moscow court that convicted three members of punk band Pussy Riot to two years in jail each for belting out a profanity-laced anti-Kremlin song inside a cathedral was hacked on Tuesday.
A slogan denouncing President Vladimir Putin was posted on the site as was an appeal for the trio’s release along with a video clip of one of the band’s latest anti-Putin songs and a clip by Bulgarian singer Azis, local media reported.
The hack attack - claimed by AnonymousRussia, which says it is affiliated with hacking activist group Anonymous - comes amid a chorus of criticism of the sentences, which Western governments and singers said were disproportionate and opponents of Putin called part of a crackdown on dissent.
A screenshot posted by opposition activist Ilya Yashin on Twitter showed the court’s web page topped by an inscription reading: “Putin’s thieving gang is plundering our country! Wake up, comrades!”
Another caption called for the release of the band’s jailed members - Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, Marina Alyokhina, 24, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 30.
The site of Moscow’s Khamovniki district court hamovnichesky.msk.sudrf.ru/ was operating normally by noon (0800 GMT) but its hacked version was on display for several hours on Tuesday morning.
Darya Lyakh, a spokeswoman for the court, said a department of the Supreme Court had asked federal investigators to look into the hacking attack.
