[request] support immigrants,refugee rights and #postnationalism for a united globe
*I'm new to /Assistance/ but I'm not new to supporting immigrants and refugees of ALL stripes. #postnationalism is for people who look past their country of birth to a 'united' globe. Looking around the world it seems that almost everywhere nationalism is on the rise. In the US polling shows the Tea Party movement supported by a third of Americans, and a major belief of the Tea Party is anti-immigration. In this years European elections the Eurosceptic EFDD alliance had almost 11 million votes despite running in only 7 countries. France's EU election had the Front National take home the most seats. Golden Dawn was the party that received the third most votes in Greece. In this year's Swedish election the ultra-nationalism Sweden Democrats finished with the third highest seat count. In this year's Hungarian election Jobbik received 20% of the popular vote. Of course there was the Scottish referendum which came with 6% of having a Yes victory. And there is the ongoing war in the Ukraine demonstrating both Ukrainian and Russian nationalism. Than there is the remilitarization of Japan showing that this is not just a European phenomena. (mods excuse me if this is politics but it's more like charity for the weakest among us, the lowly migrant worker.) TLDR; Support migrant workers, Donate Bitcoin: http://postnationalism.tip.me/ (or come help out at /postnationalist)
