We took these few photographs inside the Hall of School Number 1, Beslan on the 2nd Anniversary. The text in the first is Ossetic and means (loosely) “Thank you to the heroes for giving your lives for our children”.
The American Secretary of State, Condeleeza Rice, was visiting St. Petersburg at the time the skankworks.net were in Beslan, for a now defunct G8 meeting. Her public comments were to the effect that Vladimir Putin was personally to blame for the attack on Beslan due to his “foriegn policy” in Chechnya. Radically different from her equally fallacious comments on the Sept 11th attacks which, according to her, were nothing to do with America’s policies and were carried out because, “they hate our freedoms“.
We let these few pictures speak for themselves.
