CALLING ALL COUNTERPUNCHERS! CounterPunch’s website is one of the last common spaces on the Internet. We are supported almost entirely by the subscribers to the print edition of our magazine and by one-out-of-every-1000 readers of the site. We aren’t on the receiving end of six-figure grants from big foundations. George Soros doesn’t have us on retainer. We don’t sell tickets on cruise liners to the “new” Cuba. We don’t clog our site with deceptive corporate ads or click bait. Unlike many other indy media sites, we don’t shake you down for money every month … or even every quarter. We ask only once a year. But when we ask, we mean it. So over the next few weeks we are requesting your financial support. Keep CounterPunch free, fierce and independent by donating today by credit card through our secure online server, via PayPal or by calling 1(800) 840-3683. Note: This annoying box will disappear once we reach our fund drive goal. Thank you for your support!
These photographs of Afghan refugees were taken in the Katchagiri Refugee Camp, Peshawar, Pakistan in 1983.
Eighteen years later, the two million Afghans left in dusty, sprawling camps in Pakistan after the Soviet war, are joined by new refugees fleeing their beleaguered country..
What struck me the most when photographing these star-crossed people, was their open and vibrant spirit, made even more exceptional by their strained living conditions and traumatic experiences.
The images are available as matted 16″x20″ color prints. For further information: firstname.lastname@example.org
