nothing better to do

nothing better to do


  1. some people do make a difference in this world. You do Mazen.

  2. mazen this is one of my favourites. it gives me, in my safe living room, the impression of an emotional understanding.
    went demonstrating again, more and more people are saying their disgust of this unfair, illegal war. good, it gives me a bit of hope for humanity, there are still human beings out there, money hasn't eaten all the western brains...
    I want to see an end to these wars, mazen, do you think there is hope that we'll see that one day? silly question, but keeps coming to my mind.
    let me quote one my favourite piece of theatre, you might have read it, it was written in Lebanon in 97...
    sorry it's in french, but i'm working on the translation as we speak.

    "malédiction sur toi malédiction
    homme de la guerre
    et donc malédiction sur l'homme
    et malédiction sur nous
    sur notre engeance
    si nous oublions un instant
    la tete du nouveau-né écarté par la hache
    l'enfant caché dans la fosse des chiottes
    la femme au vagin déchiré par le canon d'un fusil
    le vieillard rompu comme un bois sec
    malheur sur nous malédiction
    si nous faisons des ames
    belles ames des victimes
    un nouvel holocauste au crématoire de l'oubli
    assis sur notre cul bourgeois et nous sucant les pouces
    homme de la guerre écarte-toi
    place au doute au chagrin aux sueurs de la honte
    place partout aux ames des victimes
    [...]place a la faiblesse du sentiment
    place a ceux-la qui continuent d'aimer
    sous la torture
    place a l'émotion inguérissable d'aimer
    et haro sur la force
    et sa grandeur
    homme de la guerre
    mon petit salaud
    depuis sept mille ans au bas mot
    depuis sept éternités
    tu travailles
    depuis sept éternités
    tu travailles a saigner la chair des hommes
    [...] allons c'est assez"

    here you are... come on people, be angry! there are far too many reasons for anyone to be very very angry! this war definitely makes me angry. come on, let's get angry all together, let's unite in our anger at injustice and the deaths of innocents!!

    Mazen thank you for what you do. your drawings are saved on my computer just in case. they are getting seen more and more.
    hope you are holding on.
    continue mazen courage
