    When People Say, ‘If You Don’t Like It Here, Go To Another Country,’ I’d Love To Offer This One

    A Harrowing Look At What A Drone Strike Targeting A Young Boy Would Look Like

    The justification for drone strikes is that they target suspected terrorists. But so often what’s left from the picture painted by our politicians are the innocent lives taken.

    Artist Omer Fast spoke with a former American drone operator in Afghanistan and Pakistan about the pilotless aircraft — but instead of just filming the interview, he tried a different approach. It’s a powerful and harrowing way to bring the issue closer to home and to close the empathy gap when a problem seemingly only exists “far away.”

    Banksy Has Updated His Famous ‘The Girl With The Balloon’ Artwork To Stand With Syria

    The Syria crisis hasn’t slowed down. Over 100,000 people have died in three years, with thousands of Syrians displaced, many of whom are women and children.

    But many are still standing with Syria, including the street artist Banksy, who has reworked his famous and popular street artwork of a girl reaching for a red balloon. The original depicted a young girl with flowing hair reaching for a heart-shaped balloon just beyond her grasp. The new version of his classic stencil is a young Syrian girl reaching for a balloon, accompanied by a #WithSyria hashtag — part of a global vigil campaign to mark the three years since the crisis began.
