Poefrika on the 1976 Soweto events

Found this in the blog PoƩfrika, a powerful deeply moving post by bloghost Rethabile on the events in June 1976 in which residents in Soweto, South Africa, rose up in rebellion against the apartheid system there. Rethabile's blogpost is here.

John Berger on Gaza and Darwish

Really liked this, a short piece by British Marxist art critic John Berger: on the siege of Gaza, visiting the grave of Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, and underground art in Ramallah: in the website of the literary magazine The Threepenny Review, here.

I've written previously in this blog about Mahmoud Darwish, here; and about John Berger, here.
