Chris Hedges on Roots of Terrorism, Free Speech Hypocrisy & Translating #JeSuisCharlie

How many people die while carrying their professional duty at work; soldiers, firefighters, police officers, professional athletes, pizza delivery drivers … How many innocent victims are killed every day in the “hot spots” of the planet? How many people in the world die from diseases for which effective treatment and drugs are exist? How many children die every day from hunger in the world? Hundreds, if not thousands.

About Ahmed Islamov

I was born and raised in Uzbekistan and lived in that country for about two thirds of my life. I left the country about 14 years ago but sustained tight bonds with my family and friends living there. I know and communicate personally with hundreds of people including blue-, white- or pink-collar workers. I am naturally very attached to and concerned with everything that is going on there.
