"You know well enough that we are exploiters. You know to that we have laid hands on first the gold and metals, then the petroleum of the ‘new continents,’ and that we have brought them back to the old countries. This was not without excellent results, as witness our palaces, our cathedrals, and our great industrial cities; and then when there was the threat of a slump, the colonial markets were there to soften the blow or to divert it. Crammed with riches, Europe accorded the human status de jure to its inhabitants. With us, to be a man is to be an accomplice of colonialism, since all of us without exception have profited by colonial exploitation."
Sartre, in his preface to The Wretched of the Earth

New Era of Civil Disobedience                              Anti-government activists gather during a protest in Hong Kong, China, late Saturday and in the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014. Pro-democracy protesters kick-started an occupation of central Hong Kong after students clashed with the city’s police, prompting thousands of people to take to the streets in support. China said last month that candidates for the 2017 leadership election must be vetted by a committee, angering pro-democracy campaigners who say the group is packed with business executives and lawmakers who favor Beijing. Read more from the report by Bloomberg News. Photographer: Lam Yik Fei/Bloomberg     © 2014 Bloomberg Finance LP

"Above the courts, beyond the twenty something years of forced labor that you can sentence us to, beyond the eternity of forced labor if you want, I see the dawn of freedom and equality breaking. Come on! You are fed up with it, you are disgusted with what is going on around you!… How can you calmly watch the proletariat suffer without end while others gorge themselves?"

Louise Michel

excerpt of her defense speech from the hearing of June 21, 1883

In Sociology, this week’s module is on propaganda and marketing.  For homework, we were asked to make a poster for an imaginary campaign either for a made-up product or a current social issue.  This is mine.  

So strong
