I have not written about 9/11 for a while. And I should have. I should have because for millions of people 9/11 never stopped. 9/11 is still happening every day to the victims in New York, the soldiers send out to avenge that day and the 60 million refugees uprooted as a result of the wars we waged in the aftermath of that day!
It is happening to the first responders who are dying every day from the cancers they are suffering from as a result of 9/11 dust they inhaled. It is happening to the citizens who are still dying every day for the same reasons. It is happening for the millions of Muslim refugees currently trying to get to safety in Europe while their countries are being bombed while we are apathetically looking away because what the hell, they are responsible for 9/11!
Many questions still go unanswered about that day and perhaps now is the time to watch Massimo Mazzucco’s The New Pearl Harbour to get some answers.
