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…. A few words on this piece. We first published it…

Media, skewered angles, and civilization

To be uncivilized, you have to be a monster. Not an animal, but a monster. In the past few weeks, we have seen prices sky rocket to new horrible proportions around the world. Genocides continue, violence and wars continue in many regions across the globe. Raging because jealousy is a human emotion men cannot learn…

“We are no fascists!” oh yeah? Prove it.

We come back with our news bits series once more. This time, it comes as a critical specific theme with a twist. Fascists. Let us begin. 1.  It has come to our attention, franchement et scandaleusement d’une certaine manière, that a shallow attempt at democracy and freedom of speech was conducted yesterday en plein centre…

It’s time to learn.

Starting 8 years ago (and possibly before), articles such as one in Foreign Policy, gave out a warning to all US politicians that if alternative foreign policy agendas were not put into place in the very near future the cost would be extremely high for the country and the world if it wasn’t already. 6 years…

untitled. for him. for them.

A crime against humanity my ancestors never asked for. The bells are ringing, warning in his ears, rockets, a pink cloud of fire. Tonight is the night he thinks. I can’t die yet.  Dust clouds thick here for days on end. Never stops. All we want is a savoury manouché, kick around the ball, dabke…

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. Le mouvementé s’est traduit par la reprise de manifestations dans les rues contre certaines formes de corruptions institutionnelles, et, en partie aussi, dans de nombreux…

Who are we, if we know who we are? Still divided but turning a page.

Two weeks ago, a fascist terrorist like “mob” crashed into the US capital all the way to the federal government’s buildings.  The reaction? Journalists: This is a never-seen before scene… and other missteps comparing to war zones created by the US imperialism. Politicians: This is not the United States of America. However, that’s the problem….

stop twisting History for your propaganda!!

Recently, I read this article off of the francophone Azerbaijani press, which a friend, equally disgusted by its language, had sent me. Its goal, like everything else Azerbaijan has publicly published in France, was to 1. thank Macron for his little speech to the Armenia Fund’s France branch and 2. compare Nagorno Karabakh* with Alsace-Lorraine….

The thing about journalism..

In the past decade, I noticed a certain trend. It made me rethink my purpose in college. Even after that, though, it still continued. As much as I tried over the years, it was harder and harder to find someone who believed in the dedication to the work on facts. Not everyone takes part in…
