Refugees and Canada: Using Art to “Unmake the Border”
The politics of etiquette and niceties by liberal Americans - let’s not even touch the conservatives.. A little boy in Pakistan lost his legs in a drone strike but let’s not interrupt the President, please. “There’s a time and place for everything,” we’re aggressively informed. We can let another 3000 Pakistanis die in drone strikes because right now we’re terribly in love with the President’s rhetorical skills. He’s got style. And blood on his hands. But that style.
"Non violent resistance in Syria? Don’t make me laugh. Those trying to topple Assad are all cannibals and head choppers….or so the likes of the academic “Angry Arab”, Asad Abu Khalil would, it would seem at times, try to convince you.
The reality is Syrians in their tens of thousands continue to resist the Assad regimes brutality (and sometimes resist certain armed opposition groups) through non-violent methods of staggering diversity and creativity. The extremely grim and brutal reality which regime apologists and quite often the mainstream media present is but one, extremely narrow perspective of what is going on in Syria. It is far from the whole truth.”
