Arundhati Roy:We are neither with you nor with the terrorists

Two-part video of Arundhati Roy’s closing keynote at the Women’s Action Forum organized an evening of resistance at Karachi Press Club, on 8th May 2009.

Main points

1. Never Surrender our complications (Edit: in the main body...important to listen to whole speech...I did over simplify!...She said, do not oversimply what is complicated or make complicated what is simple).

2. Never pick and choose injustices

3. Never make that choice of either you are with us or with the terrorists

Thanks for this.  I spent

Thanks for this.  I spent fifteen minutes at least watching various youtube videos of ms. roy.  I would just add that in the video that you linked, she also said wrt to complications that we should not complicate what is not complicated or oversimplify what is.

Oh yes....I remember that.

Oh yes....I remember that. Will edit now.

No, no, you were correc t -

No, no, you were correc t - she said both!  her summary at the end was essentially what you had first written - the version I gave was an interesting footnote she had mentioned in first stating the point.  Anyway, as always, no worries - people can watch for themselves also :)

did you watch the interview on Devil's Advocate also?  It's one of the links on the bottom of the Youtyube video.  I love the new thing they do where they give you the related videos while you're watching.
