I was talking to J about how basically Somaliland is at the tipping point with all this oil talk. Sovereignty is going to be something that comes up fairly soon or there will be internal conflict in regards to the oil. I don’t see it any other way….

Truuust, UNSOM was in Hargeisa the other day meeting with Silanyo

My mums uncle died in the 88 bombings in Hargeisa, her family are from Burco. We’re driving up to Hargeisa on thursday, going to be taking loads of pictures inshallah.

White people praising Humans of New York for ‘humanizing’ the people of the Middle East… what the fuck did you think they were before? Terrorists? Savages? Extremists? Subhumans? It needed to take a white guy with a camera for you all to realize that our people are humans with lives that your fucking government destroyed.
