Ewa's powerful testimony

Ewa Jasiewicz’s powerful testimony on the continued plight of Palestinians in Gaza and what the ISM and Free Gaza Movement are doing about it, and what we can all do in boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) actions.  Well worth 10 minutes of your time (video link).

    The Nobel just hierarchisizes an effort we should all be making, as human beings, looking to live in basic peaceful conditions (which shouldn’t need a word to describe it, in the first place). Historically the prize is political propaganda, made to make war mongering leaders look good in our collective memory.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
