On November 23rd 2012, Amnesty International screened this film by Constantine Mylonas and Stefania Mizara at the “Role of Women in the Arab Spring” event, which took place at the Cervantes Institute in Athens, one of a series of initiatives for the rights of women in the Middle East and North Africa.
From the beginning of the revolution and protests in the area, Amnesty International has called on all authorities to respect human rights and shall continue to do so. At the same time the organization is closely monitoring developments, sending out regular investigative missions, and publishing recorded content on human rights abuses.

This coming Tuesday, what I think will be a very interesting discussion -at least in all other respects except my part in it!- will take place at the Jan van Eyck Academie. The organizers, Mary Ikoniadoy & Vasilis Marmatakis, have given it the title “Imagery of Crisis”. Here is how they explain it:
In the current economic and socio-political climate, there is an emergence and circulation of images related to the crisis. In the form of photographic images, collages, headlines, cartoons and caricatures, these images, projections or representations appear on national and international press and television channels as well as on the streets, through independent media and the web.
The Imagery of crisis conference will attempt to map the emergence of this imagery within the European Union. More specifically, we will examine the case of Greece through certain moments during the crisis and via specific images.
