    I hope so, too.

    I like the juxtaposition between Tank Man, the guy with the shopping bag impeding tanks in Tiananmen Square, back in ‘89, with today’s refugee/migrant with suitcases impeding bulldozers demolishing ther camp in Calais.

    But that’s as far it the image goes. Despite some rioting & clashes last night, it’s pretty much going peacefully today.


    It’s the French evacuating the camp but in effect Calais is the UK border according to the Le Touquet treaty [for processing purposes etc]

    Also, a couple of weeks before Khwezi’s death, there was a silent protest of 4 women supporting her at a speech Zuma gave:




    The USA is in danger of electing a womanising fool, by his own words, someone who condones sexual assault; South Africa elected one.

    The guy with the shower-head is Jacob Zuma, current president of South Africa. The shower-head became his signature representation by a South African cartoonist, Zapiro (Jonathan Shapiro).

    Gado has borrowed that representation as Zapiro created it.


    It came about because back in 2005 Zuma had been accused of raping a friend’s daughter (adult), Khwezi, but who was HIV+ and he was aware of it. Zuma infamously told the court that he took a shower afterwards to ensure he didn’t catch the virus since he had not used a condom…(and he also claimed it was consensual sex). He was acquitted, a controversial verdict. And as far as I know, he is not HIV+ so he didn’t contract the virus from her

    The cartoon depicts the on-going (and now delayed) election for a new chairperson for the African Union (AU). The current chairperson is Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, a former wife of Jacob Zuma. Our showerhead has had 6 marriages, 4 wives currently, 1 committed suicide and 1 divorced him (the AU chair). I think there were 3 candidates for AU chair in the final round, 2 of which female, but the required 2/3rds was not reached.


    Incidentaly, Khwezi died a couple of weeks ago.

    Below is the url reporting her death:

    In the 9th grade I used the Sound of Silence as my poem to analyse/talk about before the class. My classmates objected but my teacher was chuffed ;-)

    Cool! Thanks, I didn’t know the history of that song.

    I’m amused.

    Isn’t Tim Kaine, Clinton’s running mate, a Catholic as well? Trump’s 2nd mate was raised Catholic and converted to the evangelical church, which I think is more conservative…?

    Anyhow, I don’t see how this indicates an anti-Catholic bias. Especially with a running mate who is Catholic.
