Washington's Wars and Occupations: Month in Review #83 • March 31, 2012
Rebecca Tumposky foregrounds the racist dynamics shaping events this last month from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, & the Israel-Palestine conflict to the streets of Sanford, Florida & El Cajon, California.
Sixteen Afghan civilians are massacred in their beds by a U.S. soldier. Trayvon Martin is murdered by self-appointed 'neighborhood watchman.' Shaima Al Awadi, an Iraqi immigrant and mother of five, is found brutally killed in her home in El Cajon, California. The KONY video, with its ‘Western-white-military-force-will-save-the-day' message, goes viral.
