Manifestación Mexicana en Solidaridad con Palestina exigiendo un ¡ALTO A LA OFENSIVA MILITAR ISRAELÍ CONTRA GAZA!
|—||Elena Poniatowska, Leonora. (via libroabrazos)|
Chanting “Intifada, Intifada,” thousands of furious Palestinians called for a new uprising against Israel during the funeral on Friday of a teen who was kidnapped, killed and had his body charred by suspected Israeli settlers.
Stones thrown at Israeli police were met by teargas, stun grenades and rubber bullets in one of the most highly charged displays of enmity in Jerusalem in years as the body of Mohammed Abu Khudair, 16, wrapped in a Palestinian flag, was carried through his neighborhood under a sweltering sun.
Medics said 15 demonstrators were treated for injuries. There was no immediate word of arrests by the Israelis.
"With our blood and our spirit we shall sacrifice for the martyr," mourners said as they carried Abu Khudair’s body before he was buried in a local cemetery.
It was the third straight day of violence since Abu Khudair was kidnapped and found dead Wednesday in a suspected “revenge” attack for the abduction and murder of three Israeli teenagers last month.
I really like soccer, but I love people first.

Message to Mexico (Zapatista School) by Mumia Abu-Jamal
Message to Mexico: Viva John África
Dear brothers and sisters, dear Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés, dear Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos, dear Zapatista communities, dear sons and daughters of The Little School of the Zapatistas.
Welcome. Good Morning.
A salute to the Zapatista Movement, for the poor, the peasantry and the peoples of the mountains of Mexico!
My name is Mumia, an Afro-American friend from North America.
Thank you for this invitation to The Little School of Zapatistas. Your teachers are providing you with a window to the world of struggle and revolution.
My friends, the history of the African American people is your history, also. In those dark days of captivity, Mexico became a house of freedom for Africans and Indians who escaped from the United States, a house of slavery.
Sons and daughters of Emiliano Zapata, study, learn, read and this whole world you will inherit.
My friends, from the prisons of captivity of capitalism this is Mumia Abu-Jamal

Naming Uruguay the country of the year in 2013, the Economist may very well have described the rising nation’s head of state, President José “Pepe” Mujica.
Known for his unusual frankness, fiery oration and bold leadership to turn ideas into action, the 78-year-old leader possesses and practices the very characteristics that many world leaders fail to emulate. He has also garnered international acclaim for his progressive policies, down-to-earth personality and simple presentation, which has earned him a reputation as “the world’s poorest president.”
