une phrase universelle

"Nos familles sont là-bas"

Cette phrase universelle, crié en temps de
violences et de guerre, et d'oppression

C'est comme si certains tournent en rond,
leurs voix se brisent, tellement ils/elles ont
essayé(e)s de se faire entendre, alors que
d'autres sont entendu(e)s dès la 
première seconde....

“Nos familles sont là-bas” ce qui peut être dit par n’importe qui venant d’une région décimée par violences et guerres. February 2022, Strasbourg, France. ©le_chah_errant

A few words on this piece. We first published it on our photography portfolio last month. While it is marvelous to see the entire world mobilizing for Ukraine, it is disturbing that not much attention is being invested anywhere else. It shows the selective hearing many of us are seeing since many years, in Europe and elsewhere. The war is affecting the entire neighborhood from the west of Russia all the south of Russia and to the Mediterranean and beyond.  And as mentioned above, we all have family somewhere. whether it’s a somewhere  at peace or a somewhere at war.
