NEW YORK -- September 7, 2013. A protester at a "Hands Off Syria" march in Manhattan.
I shall refrain from the polictical views and judging people who you know nothing of (very narrow minded) like other commenters and comment instead on a fantasic photograph. I love this capture. I think you have caught the moment well and I sense the passion of this woman (whether she be right or wrong) in her campaign. Very nice.
Thank you. I like the shot too (not tooting my own horn, the subject makes it go) - and I agree, "let the people decide" on the issues of the day.
For more than two years, the Syrian people has been fighting for its freedom and its dignity. Men, women and children are victims of bullets, torture, bombs, lack of food, lack of medication and now of toxic Gaz capable of suppressing thousands of lives at a time. So far, there is more that 100,000 dead, millions of displaced and countless injured. Children represent a large part of the victims. For more than two years, we witness the suffering of the Syrian people. Have you seen these images of people dying in the street, of mutilated children, of young men bleeding to death? Have you seen the panic in children’s eyes and the mothers screaming their despair? Have you seen the bodies, aligned by doze ns? We will keep in our memory these images of horror and also the incapacity of the UN to take its responsibilities and to stop this catastrophe. It is more than time to act.
I do wonder if she could identify Syria on a map.
Yes, I'm going to take this screaming hippie's opinions of geopolitics seriously.
