Dismantling the Devil’s Rope

 

Barbed wire kills – both wildlife and organisms it supposedly contains.

 

Most deaths are unobserved and unreported. They happen mostly happen in the dark, unseen. Another form of slow violence.

 

Yet no-one has been held liable for deaths.

 

Barbed wire is listed as a ‘threatening process’. It’s also used as a weapon and in torture. It slices up landscapes, people and cultures.

 

I’m told, however, it is ‘just another tradition’.
