The Greatest Damage – Laureano Márquez

The Greatest Damage - Laureano Márquez Blog Post by Laureano Márquez, January 21, 2019 The greatest damage the regime has done is not the destruction of the oil industry, or the disappearance of gold, or the bankruptcy of agriculture and industry.

Thoughts on Other People's Children - Cristina Blog Post by Cristina Cugliandro, Nov. 2, 2018 MORE AT PLAY by Cristina I adore watching the work.

OPC Blog Series – Jen

Thoughts on Other People's Children - Jen Blog Post by Jen Viens, Oct. 30, 2018 I’ve been thinking a lot about language lately. Where it comes from, how we use it (or don’t), what kind of attitudes and beliefs are embedded into it, and how violent it can be.
