Is now live, here. With pics by Bryan Denton. (Follow him on Twitter at @bdentponphoto.)
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPH
I carry a Canon G11 as a visual notebook, pocket Xerox machine and as a ready back-up for the real photographer at my side. While with the rebels today I made a few frames. Bryan’s work is far, far better. Look for it on the NYT.
That’s why the international community must act even more quickly in the future.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
On March 11, 2011 I discovered Aljazeera English for the first Time. Since then, we are one;-)
Don’t know what to say for the moment. I have many things to do now. Still, I want to say something: 2011 has been a strange year until now. The desaster in Japan make people on the globe very sad. While otherwise the uprising in some arab countries let us hope to see a tolerante, democratic and peaceful new Middle East.
