Srebrenica Anniversary Burial; Srebrenica Bosnia, July 2016

Srebrenica Anniversary Burial; Srebrenica Bosnia, July 2016

Taken on 2016-07-11

This picture was taken on the commemoration of the Srebrenica massacre in the Potocari cemetery in Bosnia-Herzegovina. After the religious celebration, various burials were organized in the cemetery for recently found victim remains. The Srebrenica anniversary and the events surrounding this commemoration have become quite controversial events in the politics of Bosnia. The anniversary itself brings together members of the Bosniak and Bosnian Muslim community to mourn, remember and advocate for the victims of the events of July 11th, 1995. Yet the commemoration tends to be contested by politicians and members of other ethnic groups, showing the social divisions in the country.

Monument Against Republika Srpska in Sarajevo, Bosnia; July 2016

Taken on 2016-07-09

This picture is taken on the weekend previous to the anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre. This is a monument done by a social movement called AntiDayton who insist that the creation of Republika Srpska (RS), one of the two political and administrative entities forming Bosnia-Herzegovina, is a product of ethnic cleansing in the 92 to 95 war. The monument is established as a map of RS and within it are objects that belong to victims of the Srebrenica massacre.

Remembrance in Visegrad, Eastern Bosnia; June 2016

Taken on 2016-06-14

This picture is taken during a remembrance act done in the town of Visegrad, comnemorating the Pionirska street fire where around 70 Bosniaks were set on fire during the war. This picture is taken after a march through the town organized by a local victim organization. The banner pretty much tells the tale of the Lukic cousins and their war crimes in this city. They were both processed and sentenced by the ICTY.

Srebrenica: Where modernity meets atrocity; Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Aug 2015

Taken on 2015-08-28

This picture was taken in August, 2015 in Sarajevo. It marks the commemoration of the Srebrenica genocide, and of particular attention is that the message is displayed between a modern shopping centre (an example of the reconstruction process and the interest in vitalizing entrepreneurial practices in Bosnia) and very close to the are where various agencies such as the OSCE and the EU mission in Bosnia have their offices.

Rohingya Refugee Rural Slum; Kutupalong, Bangladesh, Mar 2015

Taken on 2015-03-31

The Rohingya people are a Muslim minority group historically based in Rakhine state, Myanmar. The Rohingya people are considered “stateless entities”, as the Myanmar government has been refusing to recognise them as one of the ethnic groups of the country. To escape persecution and hostility, the Rohingya people have being fleeing Myanmar and Bangladesh in high numbers. From January to March in 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 25,000 people have been taken to boats by human traffickers. There are claims that around 100 people died in Indonesia, 200 in Malaysia, and 10 in Thailand (see 2015 Wiki 'Rohingya Refugee Crisis' page for more information) Featured in this photo report are scenes of Rohingya refugees settled in rural slums around the UNCHR-government run camp of Kutupalong. Unlike the refugees settled in the UNCHR camp, who are entitled to shelter, food rations, access to school and health services, the unregistered refugees in the slum are considered illegal migrants and therefore don’t have access to any government or UN services.

In Central African Republic, Diamonds Fuel A Cycle of Violence and Poverty, Sept 2014

Taken on 2014-09-19

"Central African Republic has become a nation whose borders exist only on maps, where governmental authority is limited mostly to the 25 square miles occupied by the capital, Bangui, if that. Two years ago, mainly Muslim militias, known collectively as the Seleka, seized power, then plundered the country: from precious – diamonds, gold and ivory – to mundane – guns, cars, office supplies and food. A group of mainly Christian and animist militias later retaliated, and drove the Seleka into the countryside. Today, CAR is less a country than a collection of fiefdoms, ruled by gang-like armed groups, where religious, military, political and ethnic factions struggle for anything that might yield revenue. It’s a state “that has long ceased to exist,” the International Crisis Group said in a report earlier this year."

ISIS killed at least 500 members of Iraq’s Yazidi ethnic minority in August 2014

Taken on 2014-08-10

A year ago, Islamic State militants (ISIS) attacked the Yazidi minority community in northern Iraq, killing hundreds of men and enslaving thousands of women. More than 100,000 Yazidi fled Sinjar since August 2014 when ISIS first launched the attack. Many Yazidi women were kidnapped and enslaved and the men were butchered. Yazidi activists say they have gathered a list of at least 4,600 missing Yazidi women. Most of these women are sold to other ISIS members or put on the slave market.
