Two posters created by Ron Saba

The posters refer to the current leadership race in the Canadian Federal Liberal Party. In English Canada, candidate Michael Ignatieff remarked in August that he wasn’t losing any sleep over the massacre of Qana. Recently in left-leaning Quebec, he said that his comment had been a mistake, continuing, “I was a professor of human rights, and I am also a professor of the laws of war, and what happened in Qana was a war crime, and I should have said that. That’s clear.” Bob Rae and Stephane Dion, rivals for the Liberal leadership position, immediately denounced his statement.

When they talk about the war,

planes breaking sound barriers

My mind recalls the nights,

The sleepless dark silent nights,
an uncommon silence
A hollow silence filled with the sound of danger
So close by, i NEED to run!
