What if what we believe we are fighting for is based solely on our own narrative? What if our narrative is based on the denial of the experience of "the other"?
Lia Tarachansky is the Middle East reporter for The Real News, and is currently finishing up production on her debut documentary called Seven Deadly Myths (slated for a 2012 release). The film is about the collective denial of the narrative of the Palestinian people that has led to emotional, mental, social and physical walls between the Palestinian and Israeli people.
The value of independent journalism. How Canadian money is being used to breed mass bloodshed and severe psychological abuse. The importance of seeing the humanity, the history, and the worth of 'the other' in order to break down the walls we place between us.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
