POC ZINE PROJECT

Posts tagged oppression

If someone suffers a physical injury, you take them to get medical treatment. You don’t just look at them and tell them to deal with the pain and hope the bleeding stops. Likewise, oppression is an injury. It requires treatment. You don’t tell oppressed people to get over their oppression. You treat the trauma by actively removing the systems, institutions etc which cause the pain. - Eddie Ndopu
