"This is how we need our world to move forward.
Our media, absolutely, without question, needs to look at the world around us
It has to. It is not a matter of convenience. It is a matter of humanity.
Basic humanity. Because for many of us it’s not just images
For many of us it is static noise.
It’s blinding us. It’s blinding so many of us.
And for those of us who are victimised by it the personal is political. And social media gives us the power to completely reclaim the labels that political power impose on us in the first place.
And that is something that we can never take for granted"
This talk was part of the Post-Labels session of IAM Weekend 17 celebrated in Barcelona, on April 27-30, 2017
