Bagian ketiga, tentang kota-kota India yang mau meledak karena terlalu banyak orang, dan di terlalu banyak itu, sebagian besar miskin. Sweet to find pigler we still have people capable of uncovering the myriad sins committed by our leaders in our name; bitter to read of those sins and how they continue to torment the innocent unrequited and unlikely ever to be atoned for. Kesemua hal itulah yang menyatukan kelima negara-negara ini menjadi satu, Freedom Next Time. An antidote to the authorised history that censors by omission.

Review: Freedom Next Time by John Pilger | Books | The Guardian
A lot to absorb. He invited the Indonesian mass murderer General Suharto to South Africa and gave him the country’s highest award.
John Pilger is a very unusual journalist. It makes, as you will have come joh expect from Pilger’s past form, for the kind of reportage that makes your blood boil with indignation. He also interviews both Israelis and Palestinians about their thoughts on suicide bombings by Palestinians, mostly Gazans, and human rights abuses and assaults on civilian populations by Israel’s army.

And this was just the first chapter. Mar 27, Kris rated it it was ok.

Dan menuliskannya di sini. It is his job, after all. Nex you’re conscripted into the army and then ordered with no reason given to prevent pregnant Palestinian women from crossing a check point who then loose their babies, it has got to leave a scar on your conscious.

The first is about the Chagos Islands. Makes you want to discover these places on your own and help these people fight for the freedom that they deserve. The 10 Best Emily Dickinson Poems. Ha ha, take that Chagossians. He also looks at India, a country in which, he argues, the “modern imperial cult of neo-liberalism” has led to increases in poverty.
Return to Book Page. The documentary is hard to watch as are most of his films and this written rendition including the dialogue of his interviews is impressive. He is not going to dig up some one sappy story to make you feel better about the world you live in, about your government and what it does in your name. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
