“This is not a natural disaster”, Farooq Tariq , the national spokesperson
for the Labour Party Pakistan, told Green Left Weekly.

“There have been big debates about the changing global climate and its
effects on Pakistan," Tariq said. "This latest rain wave is unprecedented.

"Looking at the history of our weather, it is reported that once in seven
years there has been a bad flood. But this has changed. This is second year
in a row that there is a devastating flood.”

original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man

dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
