Sinopse

Stéphane Hessel, recently published a short pamphlet titled “Get Angry” (Indignez-vous). In it, Hessel asserts that today’s youth should assume the same indignation that his generation in its turn had against Nazism and capitalism, as well as indignation against financial capital inequality what Israel does in Palestine (it is worth remembering that Hessel is Jewish) and the indifference that has gripped the world in the face of the injustices and inefficiencies of the current financial economic system. It is a beautiful text, less than 30 pages long, and has been largely successful. I bought the 13th edition in French in Hamburg. Next to a bookshop in a café Balzac, I read the entire text and, inspired by Hessel, who I would meet some months after, wrote this “React”.
