SKETCHES BY JAKUB CZYZ

Charcoal sketches on paper

Poland, Mikolow-based artist Jakub Czyz (facebook)

Rachel: Hi. My name’s Rachel. I’m a writer, and a college student, and I’m studying abroad in Rwanda. You may know it because of the genocide that happened exactly 20 years ago in 1994. Nearly 1 million people died and the world didn’t do anything. It seems almost incomprehensible that we could be so indifferent in the face of other human beings suffering.

What if I told you that the same thing is happening right now? Wouldn’t you want to stop it? What if I told you that in Europe, a group of Christians are systematically exterminating Muslims? So far, almost a million people have been killed or displaced.

I get that you don’t know about this. I didn’t really know about it until a little bit ago and it’s a super-complicated conflict. There aren’t clear good guys or clear bad guys. The Muslims took power last March and they committed lots of human rights abuses against the Christians. Then, the Christians took power and are now systematically killing the Muslims in what Amnesty International is calling “ethnic cleansing.”

This is complicated, so I’ll give you a specific example. This January, the Muslims were still committing human rights abuses. A 28-year-old Christian woman named Sarah was pregnant when the Muslim militia attacked. They tied her hands and feet together and they threw her into a fire. When she was found nine days later, her hands were burned to stumps. She was taken to a hospital, but she died from her wounds.

Are you surprised you didn’t know about this? I mean, it’s Europe, it’s civilized, how could people actually be doing this to each other? How could we not know this is happening?

There’s also Jacob. He died last month. He was targeted by Christian anti-Muslims. He was brutally attacked by a crowd. They stabbed him, they hit him with bricks and stones until he died. Then they dragged his corpse through the streets, set it on fire, and filmed it on their phones. You haven’t heard about him either? Okay.

Let me tell you about a woman named Anna. She was fleeing the killings in the back of a truck with her 7-month-old baby. She saw the militia ahead at the road block and she knew she was going to be killed because she was Muslim. She asked a Christian woman to pretend the baby was her own. The militia forced Anna off the truck. Her baby was saved, but Anna was shot multiple times until she died.

Can you believe that wide-scale violence is happening like this and we don’t even know? Don’t you think we should intervene? Would you ask the UN to send a peace-keeping force to save people like Anna? Yes?

What if I told you Anna’s name was actually Fatimatu [SP]? What if I told you that this was happening, not in Europe, but in Africa. Would you still care? Or do you only care about people dying if their names sound like yours? Share this video. Let the world know.

THE RESURRECTION OFROMAN OSRIC GREY

(prologue, part I) BY SCOTT RAMON

Artist Scott Ramon (tumblr / behance) - “And onto these tumorous remains. And malignancy and shunning and fungi. And hatred of all things touched by the light of the Earth’s STAR. Tatters of clothe and skin (hair and fingernails continued to grow). I scalpel a heart. Still beating (since last December). Beneath four stories of ice. Decades of self mutilation. And mildewed, wet, death dreams. This is your trilogy. The drunken Father. The schizophrenic Son. And the holy Ghost (of your Mother). I destroy your burial seal. A powerful mark. Binding you to your grave. Holding you to the dirt and the dust. The door now forced wide open. Your rambling path cleansed. All of my breath. All that is left of me. Pushed from my mouth (my lips covering your lips). Into the black hole that use to be your mouth.

RADIOLARIA INDEX BY CHAOTIC ATMOSPHERES

Chaotic Atmospheres (behance) Topologically Generated Radiolaria - "I’ve been requested by Neonmob (a trading-card social network), to make a big set of more than 100 pictures. As I had freedom on the subject, I searched for base shapes that I could vary sufficiently so there’d be a relationship, and yet each shape would be different from all the others. I ended up representing an index of fake radiolaria inspired by SEM imagery and the incredibly detailed illustrations of Ernst Haeckel." [ Read More ]

10 Lies? Russians Fire Back

1. Mr. Putin says:  Russian forces in Crimea are only acting to protect Russian military assets. It is “citizens’ defense groups,” not Russian forces, who have seized infrastructure and military facilities in Crimea.

The Facts:  Strong evidence suggests that members of Russian security services are at the heart of the highly organized anti-Ukraine forces in Crimea. While these units wear uniforms without insignia, they drive vehicles with Russian military license plates and freely identify themselves as Russian security forces when asked by the international media and the Ukrainian military. Moreover, these individuals are armed with weapons not generally available to civilians.

2. Mr. Putin says:  Russia’s actions fall within the scope of the 1997 Friendship Treaty between Ukraine and the Russian Federation.

The Facts:  The 1997 agreement requires Russia to respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Russia’s military actions in Ukraine, which have given them operational control of Crimea, are in clear violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.

3. Mr. Putin says:  The opposition failed to implement the February 21 agreement with former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

The Facts:  The February 21 agreement laid out a plan in which the Rada, or Parliament, would pass a bill to return Ukraine to its 2004 Constitution, thus returning the country to a constitutional system centered around its parliament. Under the terms of the agreement, Yanukovych was to sign the enacting legislation within 24 hours and bring the crisis to a peaceful conclusion. Yanukovych refused to keep his end of the bargain. Instead, he packed up his home and fled, leaving behind evidence of wide-scale corruption.

4. Mr. Putin says:  Ukraine’s government is illegitimate. Yanukovych is still the legitimate leader of Ukraine.

The Facts:  On March 4, President Putin himself acknowledged the reality that Yanukovych “has no political future.” After Yanukovych fled Ukraine, even his own Party of Regions turned against him, voting to confirm his withdrawal from office and to support the new government. Ukraine’s new government was approved by the democratically elected Ukrainian Parliament, with 371 votes – more than an 82% majority. The interim government of Ukraine is a government of the people, which will shepherd the country toward democratic elections on May 25th – elections that will allow all Ukrainians to have a voice in the future of their country.

5. Mr. Putin says:  There is a humanitarian crisis and hundreds of thousands are fleeing Ukraine to Russia and seeking asylum.

The Facts:  To date, there is absolutely no evidence of a humanitarian crisis. Nor is there evidence of a flood of asylum-seekers fleeing Ukraine for Russia. International organizations on the ground have investigated by talking with Ukrainian border guards, who also refuted these claims. Independent journalists observing the border have also reported no such flood of refugees.

6. Mr. Putin says:  Ethnic Russians are under threat.

The Facts:  Outside of Russian press and Russian state television, there are no credible reports of any ethnic Russians being under threat. The new Ukrainian government placed a priority on peace and reconciliation from the outset. President Oleksandr Turchynov refused to sign legislation limiting the use of the Russian language at regional level. Ethnic Russians and Russian speakers have filed petitions attesting that their communities have not experienced threats. Furthermore, since the new government was established, calm has returned to Kyiv. There has been no surge in crime, no looting, and no retribution against political opponents.

7. Mr. Putin says:  Russian bases are under threat.

The Facts:  Russian military facilities were and remain secure, and the new Ukrainian government has pledged to abide by all existing international agreements, including those covering Russian bases. It is Ukrainian bases in Crimea that are under threat from Russian military action.

8. Mr. Putin says:  There have been mass attacks on churches and synagogues in southern and eastern Ukraine.

The Facts:  Religious leaders in the country and international religious freedom advocates active in Ukraine have said there have been no incidents of attacks on churches. All of Ukraine’s church leaders, including representatives of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate, have expressed support for the new political leadership, calling for national unity and a period of healing. Jewish groups in southern and eastern Ukraine report that they have not seen an increase in anti-Semitic incidents.

9. Mr. Putin says:  Kyiv is trying to destabilize Crimea.

The Facts:  Ukraine’s interim government has acted with restraint and sought dialogue. Russian troops, on the other hand, have moved beyond their bases to seize political objectives and infrastructure in Crimea. The government in Kyiv immediately sent the former Chief of Defense to defuse the situation. Petro Poroshenko, the latest government emissary to pursue dialogue in Crimea, was prevented from entering the Crimean Rada.

10. Mr. Putin says:  The Rada is under the influence of extremists or terrorists.

The Facts:  The Rada is the most representative institution in Ukraine. Recent legislation has passed with large majorities, including from representatives of eastern Ukraine. Far-right wing ultranationalist groups, some of which were involved in open clashes with security forces during the EuroMaidan protests, are not represented in the Rada. There is no indication that the Ukrainian government would pursue discriminatory policies; on the contrary, they have publicly stated exactly the opposite.

POLISH PATTERNS BY KACPER KOWALSKI

Photographer Kacper Kowalski - “I’m not sure if there is any more hackneyed subject in photography then nature. Maybe portraits… Landscapes are my favorite theme.  I hunt for them near my home, by the way. And every time I am delighted. Graphic compositions of fields, roads and meadows, lakes like puzzle cuts,  surprisingly symmetrical patterns on a frozen lake – these are Polish patterns.”
