Social segments against military trials for civilians
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tZLLQTn4bU
by tahrirDiaries via @youtube 



I am against military trials for Civilians!
WHY? Because I am a Civilian
and I do NOT accept, in no case, NEVER,
to be taken to a military court!
No Civilian should be taken to a military court! 

Our human rights must be respected!
Military trials for Civilians must stop, worldwide!

For Bassem

Listen to the River Nile these days
listen to the music of his waves
his lament

The Freedom of Colours


updated, 15 may 2014











THE FREEDOM OF COLOURS




Colour is an important part of our lives. What would life be like without colour?
Planet Earth in its many colour hues, the colours of the sea,
the colours of the rainbow, the colours of the night sky and the colours of sunlight,

the colours of the desert, the colours of plants and animals, the colours of the people ...
Colour is not self-evident. Colours are a gift.
A unique, wonderful, precious gift.

Every day there is more destruction of nature, more oppression and extermination of people.
It is enough! I say "No!"
No colours to those who plan wars and massacres, those who torture, rape, those who kill,
those who ignore and violate the human rights
and those who destroy the planet Earth, our Mother, permanently.


My colours speak for tolerance, for humanity, for peace, for freedom.
As different as we all are, we are one family.
