Bristol, Benazir Bhutto, bullets, bombs, consumerism and capitalism and silence?

Will we be reading anything from Bristols Pakistani community?
There are thousands of Pakistani's living in and around Bristol, why do we not hear from those people (Pakistani's) most affected by such a major global event?
Another mega-event on the world stage, Benazir Bhutto assassinated, Pakistan in uproar, Musharraf supported by Britain and America in the "War on Terror"
Whats it all got to do with Bristol? ............... what has it got to do with you and me? .................... ask Bristols Pakistani's.............. But is anybody asking? ................ Does anybody care?
Is such a momentous event yet another wake-up call for Bindymedia and for the people that use it?
Bindymedia needs, at the very least, to be seen as a space where EVERYBODY can have a voice!
Communication towards peace is crucially serious activism, communication is how problems personal, political, local and global can be solved............... Why is it not happening here?
Should we all do more to be more inclusive / less exclusive?
If any person from ANY community in Bristol does not feel free or welcome to post or comment on world events on Bindymedia, then Bindymedia IS part of the local and global problem.
Violence is the lowest form of communication, war is communication at its worst, war is potentially anywhere and everywhere these latter days, WE have to make the peace, capitalist states never will!
