Don’t look away.

This shouldn’t need saying; sad to say, it does, and needs saying over and over and over again until someone in power gets it.

Well, This Is What I Think

… this is what bombing children looks like …

Whoever is doing the bombing. And certainly the first piece of film is of a Syrian Army barrel bomb being dropped on a school or hospital. And the genesis of this piece of film is uncertain. It could be IS. It could be the FSA. It could be independent. It could be propaganda by one side or the other, or it could simply be a desperate plea for sanity.

But it doesn’t really matter. This is about the children. Whichever side they’re on. The pictures aren’t fake.

Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Let’s make it stop.

Let’s stop supplying the combatants with arms, while we try and “pick winners”. Let us make our effort to create peace dialogues not war victories. And above all, let’s stop dropping bombs on civilians.Whoever we are.
And the civilians are everywhere.
