Budour Hassan · October, 2016

I am an angry woman of colour, disillusioned by the left and betrayed by people I once called comrades. “I am truly free only when all human beings, men and women, are equally free.” And till then, excuse me while I disgust your civilisation and randomly shell your liberal values.

I am Palestinian until de-colonisation; Syrian until the triumph of the revolution; Saharawi until liberation; Kashmiri until independence; Kurdish until full freedom and equality. I’m a Darfurian in Sudan, Shi’ite in Bahrain, Ahwazi in Iran, Asian housemaid in Lebanon, illegal immigrant in the US and aboriginal in Australia. The cause of every oppressed people, every indigenous minority and each unprivileged group is my cause.
