Frontline Insight: Who is London for?
Description: Residents and whole communities in London are being displaced by rising rents and a lack of affordable homes and will suffer the effects for generations to come, according to author and campaigner Anna Minton. The current housing industry is “simply supplying investments, safety deposit boxes in the sky” for international capitals. Property is a commodity now. It’s not meeting people's needs,” Minton said. The author identifies council estate regeneration, where local authorities demolish and rebuild older residential blocks, often reducing the number of affordable homes, as the main driver of displacement. “What is at stake is the home you've lived in for years, your children continuing to go to the same school, having the same networks. It’s people’s entire lives which are at risk here.” Frontline Insight is a new opinion series from the Thomson Reuters Foundation in which speakers from the Frontline Club in London share their views on a range of topics.

Kung Fu nuns strike back at rising sex attacks on women in India
Description: LADAKH, India, Aug 25 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - As dawn breaks, the sun edges over the expansive jagged mountains of Ladakh - a remote Buddhist ex-kingdom in the Indian Himalayas bordering Tibet - to reveal a world where time appears to have stood still. The chant of monks in a centuries-old monastery can be heard in the distance. Villagers slowly emerge from whitewashed stone cottages to tend to their wheat and barley fields, and ready their goats to search for pasture. Complete with its picture-perfect temples precariously perched atop rocky mountain outcrops, giant shrines and mantra-engraved walls, Ladakh's age-old Tibetan Buddhist way of life appears almost untouched by modernity. Until, that is, you hear the energetic yells of scores of young women, clad in sweatpants and trainers. Fanned out in front of a majestic white temple-like structure, they stretch, lunge, jump, kick and punch on the orders of nuns. Meet the Kung Fu nuns - women from an age-old Buddhist sect who are using their martial arts expertise to challenge gender roles in this conservative culture and teach women self-defence, as reports of rapes rise in India.
