The censoring of the websites reminds me of when I tried to get to a website called thinkgeek, but I accidentally typed in geekthink, and it came up as 'Forbidden' and it said I didn't have permission to access it.
This just reminds me of how blessed I am to live where I live. Violence like this rarely happens in my town, if at all. This kind of injustice happening in other parts of the world is just...maddening.
Its a good list of real world reference. This story is an eye opener to the reader, and i love the way you present it in the most gorgeous way possible for a web comic. I understand and agreed about the ideas about the protest and the hacks, the violence and destruction that follows, yet i have no skill to present it to the world like you are. So yeah, this kind of Story is what i really want to see. And you've done it very great!! Cheers, can't wait to see the ">>> Next (tbc)" button become ">>> Next"
Oh my gosh...I never knew things like this happen... I live in Australia and so we never hear of these things. All this propaganda and political injustice is maddening. So many people killed and injured no matter what they do... It is a brilliant idea to base your comic on these things and my friends and I have been loving your work!
Hey I live in Australia too and this kind of stuff happens of here too. All the mass media is owned by a handful of capitalist conservatives who keep a pretty tight reign on what they deem we are "allowed" to see and our corrupt politicians let it happen because they are racking in the profits too. As for propaganda merely look to the front page of the Courier Mail or The Australia and see the racist filth they spew as headlines. Political injustice? Tony Abbott is our Prime Minister... that is unjust all on its own, without evening bringing up the education and welfare cuts, the destruction of the environment for a profit we as the workers and taxpayers never see, the rampant tax evasion from the rich through loop holes that the government refuses to fix (So Gina Rinehart and Rupert Murdoch contribute less to society via tax than their secretaries; who is being payed a tiny margin of what the rich pay anyway) and finally our 'leader' (which I use in the broadest terms possible) is throwing away millions of tax payers money to fight a war in a country still so desolated from our last interference to supposedly 'stop terrorists' (though, sickeningly, we won't let those fleeing from these countries because of war find refuge in our own) but won't send humanitarian aid to the hundreds of thousands of innocent people dying from Ebola. If you want to see political injustice, my friend, merely look around your own country... our fight is here just as much as it is across the globe and it is only when we are united as one we can stand to free all of humanity from poverty, injustice and violence and most of all fight for our freedom.
Wow... sorry haha got a little carried away there....
ranting is all fine by me! it was inspirational anyways. my family don't watch the news anymore because of all this stuff so I've been living under a rock for a while... well, after that i don't think it matters where we are, there's always something wrong. I'm an optimist so i try my hardest to be happy with what we've got. a song that would do well right now would be Where is the Love? by The Black Eyed Peas. Others should definitely hear what you have to say- your words hold a lot of worth.
i would like to say that in spain there was a similar situation where hundreds of students were beaten by the police. The policemen didn't wear the badge with their licence number, wich means you could not bring suit against them. The police men went to the hospitals to scare the dostors and they tried to stop them from writing the reports of the injuries. Spain is supposed to be a democracy, but it really felt like some kind of dictature.
By the way, if you pay close attention you'll see that those infact are the Muslim brotherhood supporters dressed up as military personnel who were undressing the woman. I have seen them do it countless of times, it's a trick they use in order to tarnish the reputation of the Egyptian Military. If you don't believe me then go onto any website belonging to an Egyptian news channel and see for yourselves, it's all live and all true. And i forgot to mention, all those people ''supposedly killed'' by the Egyptian Military are not actually dead. I want you guys to search them all and i bet that you cant find more than 20 or 30 while they're claiming that 5000 have been killed but i can tell you the name of every police officer,detective and soldier killed by the hands of the Muslim brotherhood protestors. www.thenewamerican.com/world-n… check out the link and you'll get a preview of what the Muslim Brotherhood can be like
Wow... because I was a brat in 2011, I didn't understand things that well. But now I do think I have recollection of this. Either way, it's depressing to hear how people die for what they either go against, or go with.
Great story... I personally find China's (government) reasons for censorship to be rather BS... it's really just a retarded excuse to hide information deemed shameful (by the government), like how Mao Zedong was an incompetent asshole who conveniently got rid of his dissidents through the "cultural revolution"...
I followed some of the strips last year and lost track...came back to complete the first chapter today. I didn't reailse the roots were so deep, and many based on actual stories. I've followed some of these stories through documentaries, and couldn't quite pin-point the origins at the time of reading the first time around.
Great story and artwork.
Hopefully the Fisheye Placebo universe can expand into something greater and be a true voice for those affected and for what's really happening out there.
You have an amazing imagination and a true talent when it comes to drawings. This story is amazing! Thanks for sharing your inspiration. I knew about most of the facts here, but I didn't link them to your story. Now it is even better!
I'm guessing this was posted before Manning came out as trans*, but I'd suggest maybe adding an edit in the comments section mentioning how she's Chelsea Manning not Bradley Manning, just to avoid continued misgendering/misinformation about her
While movements like the occupy protests make valid points and raise very real concerns, I have a lot of trouble supporting them because all the material they put out about their ideals feels like sensationalist reporting and propaganda.
