Beyond Rangoon

President Trump has abandoned the goal of pressing President Bashar al-Assad of Syria to leave power, marking a sharp departure from the Middle East policy that guided the Obama administration for more than five years, the White House said on Friday. With respect to Assad, there is a political reality that we have to accept,” said Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary. The United States has profound priorities in Syria and Iraq, and we’ve made it clear that counterterrorism, particularly the defeat of ISIS, is foremost among those priorities,” he added, using the acronym for the Islamic State.

Absolutely no filter. Not even a little. Leiden take a bow.

Funmilayo Ransome Kuti was a brilliant scholar, wife, mother and unparalleled activist. She raised her children to be brilliant including Fela, The legendary Artist and Beko Ransome Kuti, Human rights campaigner and medical doctor. Madame Ransome-Kuti opposed indiscriminate taxation of women by the British colonial government, brought down a corrupt Yoruba kingdom and helped negotiate independence from Britain. She died in her 70s fighting for social justice after being brutally beaten by soldiers of the Nigerian army whilst trying to defend her son; they threw her off the balcony of the house. We salute you, Mother of Nations. #icons #feminism #nigeria #heros #independence #post-colonialism #militarydictatorship #policebrutality #women

Here our dear friend Natalia Avendaño Muiño stands in front of her portrait, Natalia’s Letters, at the opening of, I Know Not These My Hands, at Fotografiska.
Two years ago, Natalia discovered a worn out pale green manila folder in her closet. It contained a forty-year old stack of letters, the correspondence between her Chilean father, Renato Leopold Avendaño Gutiérrez, and her Uruguayan mother, Gloria Nestar Jesusa Muiño Bentos.
In March of 1973, Renato, a member of the Tupamaros, was incarcerated at the outset of the Civic-Military Dictatorship of Uruguay. During the three years of his imprisonment, Gloria and Renato kept in touch through letters with moments of coded language. She, in her elegantly placed cursive, he, with a mangled typewriter. There are long passages in Renato’s letters where he is just looking at her, recounting her in every detail, following the passage of time in the new lines on her face. @coopergorfer #Iknownotthesemyhands #fotografiska #coopergorfer #uruguay #militarydictatorship #loveletters

We are in war. We are the heirs of a besieged country. We are at war, therefore, the peace, at this moment, is only an invention that goes against life. The peace is a smoke that is confused with the bombs. For us there is no other option. For the great generals and for those who live and dance on the blood of those who have fallen in Venezuela, there can be no compassion. The feeling of guilt should not be ours. The president and the hierarchs have to be judged with all the weight, with all the horror they have stored in our choir of the psyche. The courage and the strength for the collapsingwarlords are in our veins. Although sometimes we do not learn. Our history from Bolívar to Maduro has been marked bywarlords. We are in war. There are no gods, we are only ourselves. It is time for the world to hear the drums they have built with our fragments, with the brains from which they have been killed, with the tendons from which they have gone. It is the hour to pounce without any compassion of our intellectual and cultural prisons, to loosen the locks, to do from whatever circumstance it may be.

El presidente y sus lagartos deben ser juzgados con todo el peso, con todo el horror que han almacenado en nuestra psique. El coraje y la fuerza para derrumbar caudillos sí está en nuestras venas. Aunque a veces no aprendamos. Nuestra historia desde Bolívar hasta Maduro ha estado signada de caudillos. Estamos en guerra. No hay dioses, sólo estamos nosotros mismos. Es la hora de que el mundo escuche los tambores que hemos construido con nuestros fragm

#FakePOTUS wouldn't shake the hand of the Leader of the Free World, but he's giddy like a schoolgirl at the chance to shake hands with a military dictator who suppresses free speech and jails political opponents (including Americans!), even going so far as to slather on a fat helping of praise saying "He's done a fantastic job."

A bit of Philippine-connection in Mizuki's Showa. One of the up close footage of the Aquino assassination was taken by a Japanese journalist, not sure if it was Ninoy's brother in law Ken Kashiwahara. Chances are, Japanese audiences saw that clip more than Filipinos. Mizuki treats the situation in the Phil back then in symbolic terms, but Japan, along with most Western powers were complicit with the Marcos regime. Until things got sour in the late 80s when Marcos became more of a liability. #igreads #bookstagram #shigerumizuki #showa #showaahistoryofjapan #ninoyaquino #ferdinandmarcos #martiallaw #militarydictatorship #coldwar #kenkashiwahara

First pic I took yesterday on the street on Victoria Island; Second one is someone else's (kinda cheating here) and is blowing up Twitter: a street artist named Sunshine Studios painted Trump as Sani Abacha, the mid-90s military #dictator of #Nigeria, infamous for looting the country of at least £5 Billion. If I had the proper place to hang it, and could have fit it in my luggage, it'd have a new home now! 😂😂🇳🇬 #streetart #politicalsatire #portrait #art #militarydictatorship #Lagos

#article44 allows the DSI (Department of Special Investigation) to detain a so called "violator" of the atrocious and undemocratic article's rules persecuting anyone deemed a threat to "national peace" by simply protesting.
An innocent bystander reporting the event is seen here at the Dhammakaya Temple defending her to film the trespassing of DSI onto temple grounds, a highly scrutinised case that has been ongoing since 2016.

This article is an ultimate threat to any potential for a return to a democratic country, allowing for the detaining of anyone for up to 7 days without a court warrant and prosecute these for national security crimes. #article44 prohibits more than 5 people gathering and gives the military unjust power to stop any publication or presentation of news that depicts them in an unfavorable light that may cause "fear or distorted information"

Since 2014 Thailand's democracy has been suppressed under a military dictatorship led by junta leader Prayuth Chan-ocha who has openly threatened to execute journalists who report him and his administration as unconstitutional or depict them in an unfavorable light. The international press and community have purposely been censored from the true ongoings within the country and any stories via Twitter are blocked.
