Economic trade agreements that are unlawfully passed without due process and public transparency happen a lot. I guess it comes with corruption and power. It's hard to change the world when the world is so often run by wolves and owned by pigs. But at least there are always the brave men and women that will always try to fight the powers that be. Thanks to my dad for sending me this link. I wish they could have at least gotten my dad to read this message, because it was a little difficult to understand this girl without the subtitles. And I only make that comment because there is such a powerful message that is being delivered it would have been more impactful in my opinion. Regardless, I will be in Taiwan in the middle of the month for a week. Hopefully all this effort and attention would have applied some meaningful pressure to the situation.

#DecolonizeHistory is about interrupting space, addressing colonial roots and undoing processes of white supremacy.
Historical narratives are most often presented without the context of colonization, slavery and imperialism despite the huge role they play on all aspects of life.Hoping this project raises awareness about injustices towards Trayvon Martin, subject to a system of racism that never served to protect his life, Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen arrested and detained in Guantanamo Bay when he was only 15 years old, and Assata Shakur & Huey Newton, labelled “terrorists” for actively resisting systemic racism on stolen land.This is the beginning, there are so many more narratives to be shared and #DecolonizeHistory aims to illuminate the role that processes of colonialism continue to play out in society.
