Djabali's leadership extends to challenging everyone: the second person form of address in 'You slapped me' (line 1) extends the entire experience covered in the poem to every person, Algerian (addresser) or settler colonial (addressee), showing Djabali's mettle as a political and cultural organizer in a society needing to engage in dialogue about a transitional justice ethic.
The passage, in the sciences of communication, to models that no longer look the receiver only as passive element, and then, to semiotic models that shift the focus on the receiver, in addition to the study of the effects of mass communication from the perspective of the meanings produced by the addresser and understood by the addressee led to the emergence of media semiotics.
