Leila de Lima: The woman who dares to defy Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte - BBC News
"Already known for being an outspoken advocate of 'justice without fear or favour,' she launched an investigation into allegations that then mayor Rodrigo Duterte was running death squads in Davao in his popular anti-crime campaign.
"She continues to campaign against the reintroduction of the death penalty. This month she was honoured by the US publication Foreign Policy as one of its top Global Thinkers of 2016, for her willingness to 'stand up to an extremist leader'."

Becoming Bernie
really nice read... really glad this/he exists

the least important fact (but one that sticks out in my mind) is that his older brother is "Larry Sanders."  vermont  history  politics  politician  mayor  senator  burlington  bernie_sanders  brooklyn  independence  nyc  poverty  profile  writing  vermont_public_radio  1950s  1960s  1970s  1980s  1990s  2000s  2010s  2015  america  high_school  chicago  university  university_of_chicago  dissent  student  life  biography  independent  controversy  policy  law
