The dead

The winter issue is a somber one. Ethnic cleansing is going on in Myanmar, and the political class there, including the Nobel Peace Prize-winning chancellor, refuses to acknowledge it. But you can’t deny facts. You can’t deny Shafiur Rahman’s photos of wounded survivors, which we’ve published large and in color in the pages of this issue.

We’ve also published a kind of tribute to Berta Cáceres, the woman whose likeness Ligia Fascioni has elegantly illustrated for the cover. Cáceres was murdered for defending Honduras from devastating industry. Her friends carry on her fight despite their own death threats, and J. Malcolm Garcia traveled around the country interviewing them.

There are other stories of genocide and fear in this issue, but what’s incredible about this edition of the magazine is that the overall attitude is determination, not resignation. We see the challenge before us, and we rise to meet it. From Latin America to Southeast Asia, we see what’s happening. The refugees at our door bear witness to the problems we’ve helped create, and we’re obliged to answer. The dead are not gone. They haunt us with tender smiles, urging us: do better.
