Contrapuntal: Transforming Gaza
A Blog by Marilyn Garson
Mondoweiss has published an expanded version of my earlier story of my time in Gaza. Part of each purchase price goes to the We Are Not Numbers project, supporting Gazan writers. You can read more, and order copies here. I’m very proud that Mondoweiss has made Reading Maimonedes in Gaza the second in their forthcoming series of hardcopy publications!
There has to be a visionary alternative, a distinction between the this-worldness which doesn’t allow us to see beyond the impossible odds in power and status, and the possibility of dreaming a different dream, and seeing an alternative to all this.
To every situation, there is always an alternative.
One must train onesself to think the alternative, not to think the accepted and the status quo or to believe that the present is frozen.
Edward Said, The Pen And The Sword, 1993
