Not Silent aim to form a global community of concerned artists and organizers who are able and willing to take a stand and hold these events as a means for action that challenges the current cultural discourses and methods, as well as the notions of ‘solidarity’ itself. Palestinians do not ‘need’ a stand to help them get along with their fate, but rather we should be responsible for making a real change, not simply from the position of being ‘informed’ on the issue, but from an active position that challenges our media and cultural discourses in which Palestinians are – at best – only being viewed as victims of acts of “misconduct” by the Zionist occupation, and where our knowledge and perception of the Palestinian issue becomes subject to “counting victims” and getting angry or frustrated from one massacre to the next. We know this is going to happen, but we do not want to think of Palestine only when this happens, thus we need to speak out and take a much more solid stand, not only for the victims, but for the living as urbanartbeat.organewblackartsmovement.comspiritchild & Fred Ho founders of a new black arts movement. #queer #freak #guiltypleasure #taboo #funk #hiphop#dancehall #afrobeat #worldtraveling #notsilent #palestine
