You know why im so pissed off about the silence when it comes to the Bosnian War and the Srebrenica Genocide in particular? Because this was the most recent genocide commited by Europeans yet no one talks about it? It’s not taught in schools (uk) it’s hardly a topic anyone cares about, it was systematically islamophobic, for those who don’t know it was a genocide targeting Muslim men and boys specifically, 8373 murdered from 11 July 1995 - 22 July 1995 to be precise. Muslim women were raped, Muslims were put in concentration camps yet this is the forgotten war and genocide? How? How can Europe just forget about this? I’m so disgusted. 21 years. 21 years of families suffering and mourning because their father, brother, uncle, grandad was killed for his faith. Fuck anyone who doesn’t care about Bosnia.
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”-Emma Lazarus
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT THROUGH THIS. WE ARE GOING TO SHOW THAT HATE WILL NEVER TAKE US DOWN, NO MATTER HOW HARD THEY HIT. WE ARE GOING TO BE OKAY AS LONG AS WE DON’T LOSE HOPE.
I love you all so dearly, so please, tough it out, as much as it’s going to suck for us. Especially for our people in the black, muslim, and lantinx communities. We will always push through, no matter what.
