While millions of Americans come together for Thanksgiving, here on New York's Staten Island some residents are finding it hard to celebrate. Many homes still bear the scars of superstorm Sandy, and with lives devastated, it's hard to be thankful. Tina Salluzzo has been living without electricity on the second floor of her home which escaped the onslaught. SOUNDBITE: TINA SALLUZZO, RESIDENT WHOSE HOME WAS DAMAGED BY SANDY, SAYING (English): "I don't know. Don't feel like Thanksgiving to me. I got to thank God that we still all good, still all alive, but I don't know how we're going to do this, you know. I really don't know." Fortunately for storm victims, communities have rallied to keep the Thanksgiving tradition alive. Food has been donated and turkeys cooked, so everyone can have a taste of a Thanksgiving feast.

Nearly 1,000 people took part in angry protests in the US city of Oakland after a ruling against a white policeman who killed an unarmed black man. A Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police officer in Oakland, Johannes Mehserle, escaped a murder conviction, instead being found guilty of manslaughter -- the softest sentence available, which caused the uproar. The policeman claimed he mistakenly drew his gun instead of a taser, and shot 22-year-old Oscar Grant III in the back on a crowded train platform. Alessandro Tinonga, a contributor to Socialistworker.org, says there are a number of reasons why this case is so controversial. First of all the shooting itself was registered on five different cameras, also because of the racial context of the killing and the fact that Grant was unarmed. "The trial itself was very controversial -- there were no blacks in the jury, the trial itself was moved from Alameda County to Los Angeles," Tinonga pointed out. "And the defense attorney used the argument that because of the history of racial violence and police brutality, Mehserle cannot actually receive a fair trial."

The Anti-Homosexuality Bill will impose harsher penalties on those "promoting homosexuality".Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/NMAtvWebpage: http://www.nma.tv/Twitter @nmatv: https://twitter.com/#!/nmatvTumblr: http://nmatv.tumblr.com/When the anti-homosexuality bill was first created in 2009, it aimed to criminalize homosexuality and proposed using the death penalty for homosexuals, HIV-positive individuals, people with previous convictions and those who've engaged in same-sex sexual activities. The bill even stated that Ugandans who are caught engaging in same-sex sexual activities outside of Uganda would be brought back and persecuted. Luckily, it was put on hold due to the extreme opposition from leaders in Canada, France, the UK and US. Unluckily, mounting pressure from Ugandan people forced the President, Yoweri Museveni, to reconsider the law. Earlier this month, the speaker of the Ugandan parliament announced her intention to push the bill as a "Christmas gift to the people". Parliament will be debating on the bill at the end of this week and it is expected to easily pass. Even if President Museveni chooses to veto the bill, it may be overturned by the assembly. It is the hope (of everyone that has a heart and moral compass) that European countries can once again step in to prevent this bill from passing.
