"Interrupting the Cycle of Oppression" by Ayvazian
I believe the author Ayvazian main argument which is obvious right by the tittle is trying to stop and break this oppression in the world. Oppression is just something that will always be there and keeps coming back so I think that's why she says it using the word cycle. She also states that we as a whole need to be able to stop or at least crack this. Although it's not an easy concept she says it would be a lot easier with having allies.
I agree with her on that because anything in life is easier with having allies on your side. Being able to back you up and even comfort you in some way. Even with being an ally doesn't have to necessarily mean you of the same group of that person you are allying with.
