♥ Yasser Arafat Day ♥
















Today I come bearing an olive branch in one hand, 
and the freedom fighter's gun in the other. 
Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand. 
I repeat, do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.

New York (1974-11-13)

I would have liked to tell you 
The story of a nightingale that died.

The story...
                 Had they not slit my lips.

The very fact of calling us Indians creates a new identity for us, an identity that began with their arrival. Changing identity, creating a new perceptual reality, is another form of genocide. It’s like severing a spiritual umbilical cord that reaches into 
the ancestral past.

My Life

You're going someplace without me, my life. 
You're rolling away. 
And I'm still waiting to make my move. 
You've taken the battle somewhere 
Abandoning me on the way. 
I never followed, I stay. 
Where you are leading me, I can't plainly see. 
The very little that I want, you never bring to me. 
Because of this emptiness, I want 
So many things, almost the infinite... 
Because of this emptiness, that you never fill. 

 - Henri Michaux - 

1899 - 1984
translated by Valerie Smith and James Bushnik

Don't send Hakamada back to death row

Don't send Hakamada back to death row 

Hakamada Iwao's freedom is hard-won, but it could be lost at any moment. After 46 years on Japan's death row, Hakamada was freed in March. He has been granted a retrial based on new DNA evidence that could prove his claims of innocence. He was the world's longest-serving death row prisoner. 
Prosecutors are appealing Hakamada's retrial - they want to return the frail 78-year-old to death row. Ask them to drop the appeal.
