I wrote this play based on checkpoints that I've read about all over the world. Whether it's in the West Bank or Gaza, Indian-administered Kashmir, the Texas-Mexico border, or the checkpoints in apartheid-era South Africa, people were and are still being denied their basic human right to safe migration and mobility. The incident in this play was based on actual events I read about in the news.
They say that we are dangerous, but the real dangerous people are those in authority or those given authority, those who blindly obey borders--at all costs, no matter what happens. Let me ask you: who are the real terrorists?
I dedicate this play to all my brothers and sisters everywhere, whether South Asian or North African, Middle Eastern or Indigenous, Native American or African, European or Aboriginal, to all my comrades in the global south fighting against their tyrannical regimes while living under apartheid, occupation (military, state, foreign, settler), and/or siege.
