We are open to comment, question, debate, but not abuse. “I may not agree with what you have to say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Why are we doing this?
There is a story about a man who leaves his house to change his village, leaves his village to change his country, leaves his country to change the world. The world resists him. As an old old man he returns to his village to find nothing has changed. If only he had stayed in the first place, and built from the ground up, he might have been able to change the world.
We see something of ourselves in this story. We are exploring the global and yet inherently local nature of conflict – and exploring how to bring these lessons home. It is a conflict rooted in a place but also one that affects, on a very personal level, people around the world, people like us.
Because for every complicated question, there are uncountable complicated opinions and complicated answers.
Because of the external perception of our individual identities.
Because someone told us we had to pick a side.
Because we have something to say, something unique and worthwhile and interesting. Because ours is a voice that is seldom heard.
