Who Shot Ahmed?

If you appreciate journalism and storytelling in service of human rights and justice, read on.

Who Shot Ahmed? Cover

 

The journalist Elizabeth Dickinson has a vital new e-single: Who Shot Ahmed? A Mystery Unravels in Bahrain's Botched Arab Spring.  It is a compelling, fast paced read about a tragedy, a government coverup and a family's quest for justice. I'm biased because I served as the publisher, but you don't have to…

9-11 and the imminent demise of democracy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=NrhFc2kIsP4

Realistically, we should remember that some people celebrated the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001, with glee.

  • Their wildest dream was coming true.
  • All those millions of American TVs tuned in to death, destruction, and devastation.
  • All that fear and anger!
  • It was better even than the…

Women in a culture of violence

The roots of the current U.S. culture of violence extend back to the unprecedented violence unleashed on this continent by European settlers in the 17th century. With the impunity that came with access to guns, belief in a God who favored them over others, and readily available justifications for violence, the settlers undertook a genocide of the native peoples.

The heavy hand of this culture of violence has always descended more heavily on some victims than others—not just…
