Tashi Wangshuk

Tibetan activist put on trial in China for inciting separatism.

Tashi had advocated for greater use of Tibetan in education, bemoaning the use of Mandarin for most instruction in classrooms where the majority of students are Tibetan. Many Tibetans view language policies as an attempt by the government to destroy their culture.

Drawings on a wall in a prison (Bangui)

20140410-165651.jpg

I was fascinated to see the amount of graffiti on the walls of the cellblocks, a clear expression of the prisoners’ imaginations and how they had handled the period behind bars. The drawings – of religious figures, people, even a bicycle – were reminders of another life.
