Jamaica sends Reggae Girlz to France for World Cup debut | AFP

Five years ago, Jamaica’s women’s football team had no funding and was and out of the official FIFA rankings. But now they are heading to the World Cup in France, to become the first women’s team from the Caribbean to make the cut. Their salvation came from an unlikely source — the daughter of the country’s most famous son, Bob Marley.

Cannabis Reguleren in de Praktijk, Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam | Cannabis News Network

Voor het eerst sinds de Tweede Kamer heeft ingestemd met het reguleren van de cannabisteelt voor coffeeshops, komen de hoofdrolspelers van het nieuwe cannabisbeleid bij elkaar om te praten over de toekomst. Centraal staat de vraag hoe regulering van cannabis er in de praktijk uit moet gaan zien.

Lang was de vraag in Nederland óf cannabis gereguleerd moest worden, maar sinds de “wietwet” van D66 is aangenomen gaat de discussie over hóe dat moet gebeuren. Er liggen namelijk nog grote vragen. Hoe komt de omschakeling van een zwarte naar legale markt er uit te zien? Kunnen coffeeshops hasj blijven importeren? En moeten thuistelende hobbyisten blijven vrezen voor politie aan de deur en huisuitzetting? Al deze vragen komen aan de orde tijdens het Reguleren seminar in Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam op 3 maart.

https://dezwijger.nl/programma/cannabis-reguleren

De avond wordt gepresenteerd door Michael Schaap (VPRO) en biedt een unieke kans om van mensen uit de praktijk te horen hoe ons cannabisbeleid er in de toekomst uit gaat zien. De organisatie is in handen van het team achter reguleren.com, een tool die mensen op laagdrempelige wijze laat zien waar ze staan in het cannabisdebat en inzicht geeft in de regels die in het buitenland worden gehanteerd. Op het programma staan:

– Tweede Kamerlid Vera Bergkamp (D66) geeft uitleg over haar wetsvoorstel ‘Gesloten Coffeeshopketen’

– Journalist Thijs Roes (De Correspondent) laat zien hoe de rest van de wereld op dit moment cannabis reguleert, en welke discussiepunten daarbij naar boven zijn gekomen.

– Onderzoeker Tom Blickman (Transnational Institute) vertelt hoe TNI o.a. Jamaica en Uruguay heeft geadviseerd in het opzetten van een gereguleerd systeem, en hoe Nederland een fair trade hasjhandel met Marokko juridisch zou kunnen regelen.

– Nederland’s bekendste wietkweker Doede de Jong presenteert een gesproken column.

– Een debat met Vera Bergkamp, Kamerlid Michiel van Nispen (SP), Maurice Veldman (VVS Advocaten), Lisa Lankes (coffeeshop Pink, Eindhoven) en ruimte voor vragen uit de zaal.

Young and Gay in Belgrade: Serbia’s March to Equality

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

The Serbian capital of Belgrade recently held its first gay pride parade in four years. The previous march in 2010 was marred by bloody clashes between anti-pride rioters and police, leaving 150 people injured.

Serbian nationalist groups amassed hundreds of their members ahead of the gay pride parade to protest LGBT rights and attempt to prevent the march. Fearing a repeat of the violence in 2010, several thousand anti-riot police and armored vehicles mobilized on the streets of the city in anticipation of this year’s procession.

VICE News was in Belgrade to monitor the anti-LGBT protests and meet members of Serbia’s gay community who were determined to defy the intimidation and march through the streets, regardless of the risks.

Back Alley Nurseries: Sex Workers of Bogotá

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In a corner of Santa Fe, one of Bogotá’s seedier neighborhoods, a woman named Luz Marina runs a nursery for the children of prostitutes who work in the city’s red light district. She charges $5 to look after babies and young children while their mothers sell their bodies, often for between $15 and $30. When the mothers can’t pay, Luz Marina doesn’t make a fuss, looking after their children for free. Over the years, women have left babies with her and never returned. For all her work helping children, she receives no assistance from the local government — she does it because nobody else will.

VICE News spent time with Luz Marina in Bogotá, documenting her nursery for Bogota’s forgotten children.

Young and Gay: Jamaica’s Gully Queens (Full Length)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In Jamaica, attacks, murder, and rape are common occurrences against LGBTI people, with little to no retribution or justice brought against those responsible.

After being forced from shacks, derelict buildings, and their own families, many homeless LGBTI Jamaicans have found refuge in the storm drainage systems of Kingston — known locally as the gully. For trans girls and gay men unable or unwilling to hide their sexuality, the sense of community and relative safety the gully provides acts as a welcome sanctuary, and for many, a hope of change to come.

VICE News travelled to the New Kingston area to see what LGBTI life is like in Jamaica — where just being who you are can mean living a life underground.

This unique community has found solace in the lyrics of street life and struggle of the recently incarcerated singer Vybz Kartel, a national hero of sorts and considered “The Voice of the Jamaican Guetto” by many. Check out the unofficial video for “Beautiful Girl” by Vybz Kartel, the “”voice of the Jamaican ghetto” at Noisey: http://bit.ly/1l7eE0P
