This was performed during our rally in #Düsseldorf on August 10 in front of the US consulate.
The starting point of this performance is Plato’s Allegory of the Cave which I adapted to #JulianAssange ‘s and #ChelseaManning ‘s ongoing persecution.
As a reminder: the Allegory relates the story of a group of prisoners who spend their lives chained, unable to turn their head around. There is a fire and people behind them who are holding figures and objects which cast shadows on a wall in front the prisoners.
During their whole live, these prisoners will never ever see the fire or the figures and objects themselves.
They also hear echoes of conversation and sounds but never a true voice or word. That’s what shapes their perception of the world.

Journalist and peace campaigner #JohnPilger says there was “not a shred of evidence” to suggest #Iran was responsible and nobody should trust the #Trump administration.

Mr #Pompeo, without presenting evidence to support his claim, said his allegations were “based on intelligence
, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation” and more.

President Donald #Trump repeated the claims today during an interview with Fox News, alleging that a video proves Tehran’s guilt.

The video is said to show an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
boat approaching one of the tankers and removing an unexploded mine from its hull. But the ship’s Japanese owner contradicted the #US interpretation yesterday, saying footage showed something flying at the boat above the water line #Trump promised the US won’t “take it lightly.”
