  • Run Donny run into your bunker. You may be the first US President to do so out of fear of your own citizens. A real leader would address the nation properly and a real man would go face the protestors on the streets in person. But like other corrupt undemocratic leaders in the past, you’ve realized they are not your people as you are not really our President. These protests are not just over race but over institutional injustices beginning with the slave era electoral college that put you in power, K Street lobbying firms, superdelegates of a two party duopolistic Neo-liberal corporatocracy whose day has come. You make antifa a terrorist organization but not the KKK? The lessons of the 2018 peaceful successful revolution in Armenia can be applied in the US and elsewhere in the world. Coordinate online and block every street everywhere and force the regime to resign. The time has come. Your time has come @realdonaldtrump

  • #repost @arsineek ・・・ After many threats to his life ignored by the Turkish authorities, the journalist of Armenian origin, Hrant Dink, was assassinated in front of his istanbul office at AGOS newspaper head quarter in January 2007. Today, the Hrant Dink Foundation, created after his killing and mandated to carry out artistic, cultural and social programs in defense of human rights and minority rights in Turkey and internationally, has received a written threat directed towards the Director of the Foundation, Mrs Rakel Dink (widow of Hrant Dink) and the lawyer of the organization. Appalling reality which still remains a practice in Turkey.  Please read the full statement "...We have duly notified the Şişli Police Headquarters and the Istanbul Governorship in writing. The email included the phrase ‘We may turn up one night, when you least expect it’, a slogan used boastfully in certain circles, and the very same slogan we were well used to hearing before Hrant Dink was so publicly assassinated, and with the knowledge of official bodies, on 19 January 2007. The threat accuses the Hrant Dink Foundation of telling ‘tales of fraternity’, demands us to leave the country and threatens Rakel Dink and the foundation’s lawyer with death.  The recent rise in unconstrained hate speech and racist, discriminatory discourse only serves to trigger, encourage and instigate such horrendous attitudes. It is the duty and responsibility of all actors engaged in politics in Turkey to work towards ensuring equality, freedom and justice for all citizens. We therefore believe that it is our duty to share this statement with the public to remind the authorities of their responsibilities and to emphasize the serious nature of the climate that has been created.  The Hrant Dink Foundation was established in 2007 to contribute to a just, free and equal Turkey; since then we have been doing all we can to work towards achieving these goals. We at the Hrant Dink Foundation would like to publicly announce that we will continue to combat discrimination in pursuit of our dream of a country that embraces difference, where all can live together peacefully, and where freedom of expression prevails.

  • A tour shenanigan regarding toilet paper. I guess it’s quite appropriate timing. This is not in our film @truthtopowerfilms but pretty hilarious nonetheless. Video credit @gregwatermann

  • A huge Happy birthday to my friend @mkhitarhayrapetyan an Armenian revolutionary, member of Parliament, a cabinet minister and and a young visionary. None of us will ever be fooled by the ill timed efforts of those behind the former plague of Armenian politics. The Armenian people know better.
