France

Dear Sheeple…

reminder

Found this meme on Facebook and I think it brings up a good point:
Media sensationalized the issues in France but chooses not to share with viewers what is happening in other places of the world (the Middle East), we are given a biased perspective and must use this to determine what is truth. How is it possible? Fair?
Subconsciously we adopt that bias within ourselves. Our actions and reactions to news about horrible violence create surges of negativity within communities back home.

When there is no conversation between people to contextualize the atrocities we see/hear in the media it has to come out somehow. In Peterborough, what seems to be a targeted hate crime has been committed to the town’s only Mosque. This action is full of hatred, racism and Islamophobia; enforced by the media since 9/11.

If you cannot feel empathy for other humans on this planet, there is a problem. People are losing themselves in their feelings, becoming hate machines fueled on violence and instant gratification.

Sensationalized, automatized. Open your eyes!

The violence is not because of a whole race of people, it is only a select few.

Re-frame your thoughts and question what you hear/read/see constantly.

The Boat and the Bomb (2005) – Full Length Documentary

A documentary about the sinking of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior in 1985 on their way to protest France’s nuclear testing in the Pacific.

I am doing a presentation about this historic event in class today. I thought it may be important to know some of the history behind groups like Greenpeace and their efforts for a better, more sustainable world.
