Free Julian Assange. Jail the war criminals!

News broke today that Julian Assange won yet another award for his courage and speaking out for the rights of others. The Catalan Dignity Commission honored him with its 2019 Dignity Prize for raising awareness of the victimization of Catalans in October of 2017. Julian Assange is still being held in remand in the UK at Belmarsh prison awaiting his extradition trial to the United States. Under lock and key and held in solitary confinement 23 hours a day, doctors continue to raise their concens over Assange’s deteriorating health.
The psychological stress caused by torturous conditions and fear of extradition have further deteriorated Julian’s well being. There were already health issues after 7 years of being detained in London’s Ecuadorian embassy. Incarceration has only exasperated the process of his disintegrating health.
Concerns were raised as early as May by UN special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, that Julian had all the symptoms of a prolonged torture victim. According to the Nelson Mandela Act, any solitary confinement over 15 days is considered torture. Assange has spent well over w00 days locked up in complete isolation without any meaningful human contact. continue

Foggia libera Foggia!


"Il 10 gennaio saremo a Foggia con tutti i sindaci della Puglia e i cittadini pugliesi che vorranno dare solidarietà e sostegno alla città di Foggia minacciata e intimidita dalla mafia. Tutti al fianco dei cittadini di Foggia, di don Luigi Ciotti, di Libera, di Avviso Pubblico senza bandiere di partito per far sentire a tutti i testimoni che stanno denunciando questi criminali, alle Forze dell'Ordine ed alla Magistratura la nostra vicinanza e il nostro sostegno". Lo scrive il presidente della Regione Puglia sulla sua pagina Facebook annunciando la sua partecipazione il 10 gennaio alla manifestazione promossa dall'associazione Libera di Don Ciotti.
"Tutta la Puglia è Foggia - aggiunge - e così sarà per sempre. Solidarietà anche all'ex sindaco di Ostuni Domenico Tanzarella al quale per due volte hanno sparato all'auto per intimidirlo e assoggettarlo. Siamo vicini anche a lui che ha sempre fatto con determinazione il suo lavoro di amministratore.
La Puglia non torna indietro e non si farà fermare da questi criminali".

All of you go get fucked!

Gamal Eid. Egyptian Human Rights Lawyer Assaulted by Suspected Cops


“About 10 or 12 men pushed me to the ground, and kicked me to stop me from moving, while others poured paint on me. Some of them used their guns to threaten people who tried to help me, while some others filmed me. They were all following orders of their “pasha”. People were angry and recognized that they were officers. One of the passersby screamed “you criminal cowards.” Gamal Eid Continue

Zehra Doğan: L'art de plain-pied dans l'Histoire

#10 Art et Culture
Zehra Doğan : L’Art de plain-pied dans l’Histoire

21 Octobre 14h-17h – Le Roudour

Photo Gael Le Ny
Zehra Doğan est diplômée des Beaux-Arts et n’a pas fait d’école de journalisme. C’est pourtant avec trois reportages sur les femmes yézidies qu’elle obtient un prix de journalisme prestigieux comme Metin Göktepe. C’est aussi sa volonté de « sortir », comme elle le dit lors de cette distinction, qui la fait devenir cofondatrice d’une agence de presse féminine. Et c’est aussi le dessin qui prend le relais de la plume et de la caméra, quand les mots ne suffisent plus à décrire l’innommable.

Et Zehra excelle alors, tant sur sa tablette numérique, par un dessin qui va la conduire en prison, qu’avec peu de moyens, toiles, le papier journal, et même des matériaux de récupération.

Elle s’inscrit dans le présent, elle témoigne dans l’urgence, même avec ce manque de moyens. C’est chaque fois un acte de résistance… une volonté de transmission. Elle archive un réel passé sous silence, le quotidien des exactions et de l’oppression, tout autant que celui des femmes, profondément inscrit dans sa démarche. Mais ses toiles, ses œuvres sur papier, vont bien au-delà de « dessins de journaliste ». Zehra construit une œuvre picturale à part entière, pas à pas, avec et dans les conditions qui lui sont faites. L’artiste est présente à tous les stades de sa résistance.

Son œuvre atteint affectivement le public qu’il soit amateur d’art ou non. La force de son expression agit comme un gifle qui réveille, et ouvre les yeux crûment sur des vérités. Les visiteur-e-s, se questionnent, s’informent, découvrent, comprennent, et ne quittent pas l’expo indemnes.

Zehra souligne aussi : « L’Histoire est écrite par des dominants, donc elle est erronée, déformée, manquante. Par exemple, dans l’Histoire écrite de la main des hommes, le patriarcat a fait disparaître la femme de l’Histoire. Pour l’Art, c’est pareil, il faut absolument qu’on se le réapproprie… »

Peut-on classer Zehra dans l’Art contemporain ? Oui, parce qu’elle est de plain-pied dans l’histoire. Non, parce qu’elle n’en utilise pas les codes marchands, qu’elle puise en permanence dans ses racines qui font son présent, qu’elle n’est pas « hors culture », ou mondialiste universelle.
Alors inclassable Zehra ?
