"'Beware my body and my soul, beware above all of crossing your arms and assuming the sterile attitude of the spectator, because life is not a spectacle, because a sea of sorrows is not a proscenium, because a man who cries out is not a dancing bear.'"
AIMÉ CÉSAIRE (Cahier d'un retour au pays natal,1938)
"This place is Rojava, the Federation of Northern and Eastern Syria,
where Kurds, together with Armenians, Yazidi, Circassians, Christians,
Turkmens, Arabs, Assyrians are dreaming boldly, and, equally boldly, are
trying to make these dreams come true." [Orsola Casagrande]
