New in W’s Photography

via Instagram http://bit.ly/2VB0RJ2 The day of the arrest
of Assange,
I was there.
I saw the anger
in his eyes
I saw the face
of despair.
He acted when
he saw injustice,
the guardian of information
the destroyer of secrets
the voice
of the oppressed.
He whistle blowed
corruption,
and with his words
and courage,
nurtured victims.
He spoke when
no one dared to speak,
a David facing thousand
Goliaths
and knew that what we know
is everything,
and how we use
that knowledge
is what we ought to be.
He understood the
mastery of fear.
But he was dragged today
in the streets of London,
and I,
passively,
was there.
