democracy, or that muted radio.

If you look hard enough, in the corner of your eye…. You see it. A blue standard, they call a symbol…    it’s a fickle one, I say. But…. They said this was democracy, one step forward to better, one more injustice fought,all because of a victory, which was no victory, but apparently no one asked…

Un an… de mouvances. Une défense de quoi?

Un an et un mois s’est écoulé déjà depuis le début des confinements. Une année mouvementée, qui est à tout jamais gravée dans les pages de l’Histoire et qui continuerait.

Last Thursday, the ECHR handed in its final judgement on Perinçek v. Switzerland in a court case concerning the denial of the Armenian genocide. The case has lasted since 2005 when the remarks were made and the first court judgements took place in Swiss courts. Now the question is, during this year, which marks the…
