Phil Weiss, co-editor of Mondoweiss asked me to draw this cartoon about what life will look like if Bernie Sanders is elected president. Some aspects of U.S. politics look radically different, others . . . not so much.
Three Mile Island Nature Preserve; The Goldman Sachs Collective Under New Management; FAUX NEWS: SANDERS: Israel has a right to defend itself
As I was drawing it I felt sad because I can't take the thought of Gaza being bombed year after year and I'm sure you can't either ! So in 2016 I will be voting for BDS [Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions] which is our only tool of empowerment on this issue.
Otherwise the alternative [is to] crawl into a hole in the ground with a bunch of kittens and pretend noting is wrong on the outside world.
We cannot count on our government (no matter who's in office) for meaningful change.
If you didn't catch my interview with Adam Horowitz, the other co-editor of Mondoweiss, you can watch it here: vimeo.com/132410997.
