Indigenous Peoples' Day

Sohrab Sepehri 90th Birthday




 

❝ Life is the dimension of a tree in the eyes of an insect.
Life is the moth's experience in darkness.
Life is a strange sence experienced by a migrating bird.


❝ By contemplation I swear,
By the beginning of speech,
By the flight of a dove from the mind.
A word is in the cage.


from We Are Nothing But a Gaze

- Sohrab Sepehri -

October 7, 1928 - April 21, 1980
 

Iranian poet and painter

Iran: Three prisoners executed at Rajai Shahr Prison in the outskirts of Karaj

Denis Mukwege & Nadia Murad Nobel Peace Prize 2018

The Nobel Peace Prize 2018 was awarded jointly to  
Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad 
"for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict."

The Nobel Peace Prize 2018


Both laureates have made a crucial contribution to focusing attention on, and combating, war crimes. Denis Mukwege is the helper who has devoted his life to defending these victims. Nadia Murad is the witness who tells of the abuses perpetrated against herself and others. Each of them in their own way has helped to give greater visibility to war-time sexual violence, so that the perpetrators can be held accountable for their actions.
