Watch the trailer for M.I.A.’s controversial unreleased documentary before it’s pulled from the internet again. Reblog the shit out of this.

The sound that’s been keeps echoing on Flickr.
A bit late to the conversation on this, and a lot of perfect things have already been said on the topic, but I’ve been thinking about it and even as someone who has naked pics online and a history of over sharing, there are still things on my phone I wouldn’t want anyone to see.
Very well put. More proof that Katie West is the Best :)

I felt air escaping and then the heat. Then quickly the billowing smoke spread over our car window. We were close to a blast. My fixer issued me to get out quickly, a second barrel bomb would be coming.
It was close to breaking fast in the crowded market. People haggled over prices of watermelons and food to take home to their families. It wasn’t the time to be worrying, it was meant to be a time to celebrate but within moment all this changed. The government indiscriminately dropped a bomb on a populated area of the liberated area of Aleppo.
It was a massacre, over tens of bodies had been found dead, many wounded. The smoke was clearing and the ambulances were on their way. We heard the second bomb go off into the distance and it gave a good message that we could work.
Over a hundred people scrambled carrying bodies, some wounded most dead and moved the debris cursing the Syrian government and calling out in Allah’s name for the misery to end.
I quickly photographed and then headed to the next site of the second barrel bomb. It was by a building in a quiet street ripping apart the foundation walls and the windows of what seem to be a sport complex. Young men covered in blood in karate uniforms stained with blood emerged, their faces confused and shocked trying to make sense of what just happened before.
Men with white helmets moved swiftly into the building helping to bring out the wounded. The building seemed on the verge of collapse but the men moved swiftly, organised.
The White Helmets as they are known work 24/7 everyday saving lives. Most never had proper medic training just the willingness to be organised and go into danger knowing the risks. As the building began to buckle, part of a wall crumbled in covering them in dust but they kept on pursuing till all could be accounted for.
And as quickly as they came, they went bring the wounded to underground hospitals to help treat the wounded.
