Shasha Ali: There were two main events around the time of this poem: I was watching from Aotearoa New Zealand, Facebook feeds on the Punggol by-election day in Singap/ura, Idle No More indigenous-led movement gaining momentum out-of-Canada and yet not picking up in Asia the same way Occupy and SlutWalk did. I was inspired, then disheartened by certain peoples' unrealised idealisation of, and thus writing to spin from Martin Luther King's, "I have a dream".
Also I have a reputation of being extremely impatient.
Here it is.
ps. I have no problems in having this video shared or downloaded freely for the purpose of awareness raising of the various issues I hope to have highlighted.
