INDEPENDENT MEDIA | On Selective Grief: Can we recognize all lives as equally ... - IndraStra Global | Images as Resistance | Scoop.it

"the consistent imbalance of media coverage and expressions of shock found in international news outlets, statements by world leaders and social media by and large seem to point to a more problematic issue than any narrative which focuses solely on personal experience and individual bias could purport to explain. This scenario of rising empathy and care for the vulnerability of Western French lives and the concomitant neglect for equally vulnerable non-Western lives, whose deaths are not equally regarded as worthy of mourning and grief, can be analyzed from what Judith Butler identified as “precarity” (Butler 2010)"

SHOW TIMES: 12:30 2:45 5:00 7:15 9:40 

The rise and fall of the Black Panther Party during the 1960s and beyond is a uniquely American story of a growing pride in black culture, and more militant demands for justice and racial equality, with a cast of larger-than-life personalities including: Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Eldridge and Kathleen Cleaver, and Fred Hampton. Renowned documentarian Stanley Nelson masterfully assembles rare archival footage that contextualizes the history of the Panthers – begun in response to racism and police brutality. THE BLACK PANTHERS does not hesitate to critique its subject, nor does it shy away from judging the corrupt activities of J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI or the countless shoot-outs, raids and arrests that were the response of local police. It is a history that needs to be told to understand today’s incendiary racial landscape.

Drones, AK-47s and grenades: Afghan war rugs

Drones, AK-47s and grenades: Afghan war rugs | Images as Resistance | Scoop.it

Afghan weavers have been incorporating contemporary images of war into their rugs since 1979, when Soviet forces occupied major areas of the country. Following 9/11 and the invasion of Afghanistan, helicopters, hand grenades, and even predator drones have begun to feature in the intricate designs. Online business WarRug.com has been curating some of the best examples from the region since the mid 1990s, with prices ranging from $300 up to several thousand.
