City ​​Behind Bars

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

In times of insecurity and lack of freedom, we live behind security gates. Nowadays you can see them expand in all places. It doesn’t create a community atmosphere but rather restrictions, regulations and often hostility. Is this person aware of the fact that their freedom has become a very small space? Has this violence locked us? Or have we taken this measure to locked us apart from violence: “Let there be violence, but outside my home”.  Inaction and force of habit rules.
