Week of Human Rights Reminders


This week is full of current events on items related to this painting around the world -- including the USA at the White House where a Day of Action against Guantanamo has been called for 11 January.

How reassuring to see peacemakers from a number of perspectives remind their followers and viewers of their sites of such similar concerns.

NOTE that 12 of JANUARY was the day genocide was outlawed world-wide (1951) - a day to mourn ALL victims of genocide.

*The Witness (painting shown above)
The doves, without eyes, beaks, or legs, are caged within barbed wire. How can peace move forward in such circumstances? Tamam Al-Akhal is the artist.
