Happy fourth of July, or Canada Day, Bastille Day, or what have you! It’s time to have street parties and barbeques and get ragingly shitfaced to celebrate the plethora of freedoms that were fought for and won decades ago and are currently in question again. I don’t know what the fuck is really going on behind the scenes but I’m not enjoying the news and constant questioning of what are clear human rights violations. These rights were fought for, agreed upon and have been legally established, why are we infringing them and setting ourselves back when there are actual global threats that are imminent? Is it a distraction, catharsis, ignorance? As you can probably tell I’m a bit of a downer at parties but once you have woken up from the haze of hangovers can you please pick up your camera or search through your archives for some perspective because there is nothing quite like the paradoxes and populist devices of our present political existence and it needs to be interrogated.
So what’s the next theme? Politics? Propaganda? Name this open call what you will, I’m just looking for insight, I want to know what the fuck is going from your perspective.
Deadline is July 31st
