JARED LETO PROTESTS IN ROME

The leader of Thirty Seconds To Mars was in the capital when he found himself in the midst of the clashes of the No Green Pass demonstration. Realizing what was happening, the actor started making videos and posting them on Instagram: “I found myself in the middle of a protest in Italy. Why was Jared Leto in Rome in the demonstration against the Green Pass? He ended up there by chance. The actor and musician is not in fact a protester of the tool to monitor vaccinations and tampons, but he was in Rome for personal reasons and was accidentally involved in street protests. Taken by surprise by the crowd crossing the streets of the capital, Jared Leto told on his Instagram channel.
Why did so many people protest in Rome? Maybe you don't know any of this but our government requires a green pass, which they issue only after vaccination, to go to the food court, the theater, museums, restaurants, bars, the gym, the swimming pool, and many other places. . And who does not have it cannot enter.
You must also have the green pass to work, both in public and private companies.
So if you want to work and you want to do something you have to get vaccinated. Those who do not want to get vaccinated are left without work and without a chance of life.
The government has reduced many people to no longer being able to have a job, to poverty, to despair. And all this no TV shows because the TVs, newspapers and all mass media are corrupt.
Something terrible is happening in Italy that destroys human rights and destroys the freedom of all of us.
It has been years since unions have cared about how workers are treated. For many years, companies have been firing and closing and ttasgeriscobo abroad where people are exploited by paying them less. All this is granted by a corrupt and thieving government. A government made up of rich people who earn a lot of money while the people are now starving. Millions of families without an income and children without a future. Italians are tired of being treated as numbers only. Companies are destructive and do not respect any rules or laws. When there are sentences in court, the managers lie and this is to harm the workers. The workers for the managers are shits.
EVERY PERSON MUST FEEL FREE TO DECIDE FOR HIMSELF AND HIS HEALTH.
EVERY PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE, AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE CONSTITUTION.
THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT HAS DENIED THE ITALIAN CONSTITUTION AND FOR THIS REASON THE PEOPLE WILL FIGHT TO RECOVER THEIR FREEDOM.

AMEN

Thanks to my father, I have learned to screw those who think that the world should rotate as their head says, or worse it should rotate around itself. Three sentences and a few attitudes are enough to identify self-reported assholes, a few more behaviors for sneaky or victimized ones. It is not presumption, they are years of parasitization and direct experience with those who do not observe themselves, and in this life they will never do it. Get it out of your head that you can support their path by absorbing their garbage. The sooner you recognize them the sooner you take back your freedom. Nobody can help them, because 95% of the time it's not a solution they are looking for. They just want to pour the non-sense of their existence onto the neighbor (and in that non-sense there can be anything).
Precisely because they turn the root of their problems to everything but themselves, they are unable to be responsible for the harm they do to them and to those around them.
Even if you tell them. It applies to all relationships, know that.

Manzoni  ( ALESSANDRO MANZONI, a famous italian writer of XIX  century) had not seen the plague, but he had studied documents after documents. And then he describes the madness, the psychosis, the absurd theories about its origin, about the remedies. It describes the scene of a foreigner (a "tourist") in Milan who touches a wall of the cathedral and is lynched by the crowd because he is accused of spreading the disease. But there is one thing that Manzoni describes well, above all, and that he takes up from Boccaccio: the moment of trial, of discrimination, between humanity and inhumanity. Boccaccio had indeed seen the plague. He had seen friends, loved ones, relatives, even his father, die. And Boccaccio explains to us that the most terrible effect of the plague was the destruction of civilized life. Because the neighbor began to hate the neighbor, the brother began to hate the brother, and even the children abandoned their parents. The plague pitted men against each other. He replied with the Decameron, the greatest hymn to life and good civilization. Manzoni responded with faith and culture, which do not avoid trouble but, he said, taught how to deal with them. In general, they both responded in a similar way: inviting us to be human, to remain human, when the world goes mad.
Health without Freedom is what is guaranteed to Farm Animals. . This is why they define you as “Herd”. FREEDOM is not a luxury, it is not an extra, an ornament that embellishes if there is, but in short, precisely if one can afford it or else something more comes first concrete.. NO! FREEDOM is your right to live, to work, to be happy, to express yourself, to be there .. what’s more concrete than your right to be there ..? Sometimes I would like to find an arrow indicating “free life”. I don’t know, maybe in the process of some woods, where the light filters through and the heat doesn’t kill you. A kind of guarantee that you are going to meet like-minded people there. People to talk to about everything but vaccines, governments and passes. Just talk to. A place you reach to express absolutely nothing, no opinion, no point of view on hundreds of points of view by now worn and tired. The only thing that sometimes matters is the need for sharing among similar people. Vibrate in the same tribe. Simply because it feels good to be together on the road. Stay in touch with those who look like you and aren’t afraid to hug. Talking without a muzzle, talking about good things, without someone having to convince the other and the other having to defend who knows what. Talk about what seeds you planted, what bullshit you did, the music you wrote or the love at first sight that got you. Thus, without having to find that prosaic sense to the questions of living, the more you think about it the more they have nothing to do with Life.
Yes it’s true, it seems to never end. It seems that humanity is condemned to an eternal struggle just to buy bread. It seems. Lately I often answer with a phrase that I said to myself when I was working, giving exams and in the meantime I had my father in hospital for cancer. Be grateful that you can fight, because you mean you are Alive. No matter how long the fight seems, it is the purpose and the mood with which you face it that make it appear to be war or peace. Choose your path and you will no longer have any doubts that that bread tastes sublime. The whole system is made in such a way that man, without even realizing it, begins as a child to enter a mentality that prevents him from thinking anything else. It turns out that there is no longer a need for dictatorship now, because the dictatorship is that of school, of television, of what they teach you. Turn off the television and gain freedom. Even the way you dress and the haircut you wear makes you realize that you really don’t choose anything. Already becoming aware of this would show the world in other terms.
Keep walking, when you realize it you will already be with your buttocks on the ground, in that uncomfortable position that the puppets hold. Immediately after, a long and obstinate reflection begins on the convenience of staying there on the ground. But the companions are already moving away and the path is far from appearing a clear path, obvious. It is not even in question the idea of ​​staying there all life, with the mud filling the soul and the backpack, so that the time comes to get up, a difficult situation and unpredictable in its results. Perhaps it is better to continue to stay on the ground and drag yourself little by little but, in addition to being not very aesthetic, this is impractical (believe me, I have tried it): there will always be a hidden root or a thorn to hold you back, and then a new reflection on the comfort of sitting in the mud, despite the mosquitoes, flies and blue flies. Already determined to get up, which is always the most difficult thing, comes the complicated operation that consists of resting with your hands and knees where it happens and trying to place the heavy hood on your back (so simple, and heavy, is to carry the house on the shoulders: just a plastic sheet and a hammock). But the backpack insists on carrying other absurd things: some poetry books, some clothes, a mismatched sock, medicine for the world, food, a damp blanket … The load as a whole weighs tons (especially after the first hours of walking) and tends to get muddy whenever he feels like it, that is, almost always. By now tortoise face on the ground, it follows the act of putting one foot and getting up on the other, with the consequent protest of the knees; the horizon then widens and will always be foreign. With the eyes on the ground, the march is undertaken again until the next fall, which will occur just a few steps ahead. And history repeats itself …

VACCINATION FOR WHAT???

ALL THESE PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN ITALY AFTER VACCINATION.

YOU SEE AMONG THEM SOME VERY OLD PEOPLE OR VERY SICK PEOPLE?

YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN YOUR STATE AFTER VACCINATION?

FAR FROM YOU

( I WROTE THIS POETRY LAST YEAR DURING THE LOCKDOWN. I WROTE IT THINKING ABOUT MY AUNT OF 85 YEARS OLD, ALONE AT HOME)

Can you remember my perfume or has this distance also erased the memories once they were stuck in the folds of our heart?
The hand moves and we stand still and this time we have no motivation to start chasing time,
this time all we can do is sit and wait for time to stop running incessantly, that he realizes that we are left a few steps behind and that maybe he is waiting for us or that he slows down, because I know well that it cannot go back.
Can you feel my emotions behind this glass that divides us?
Can you still see them in my eyes or are we too far away?
I can write the intertwining of emotions inside me on a sheet of paper, but I know well that with words I will never be able to describe how I feel.
Can you imagine my smile behind this bulky mask?
I try to draw in the sky, to join the stars together, to write something, anything, in the hope that you can perceive me.
If with my fingertips I try to imagine touching you, can you feel my touch?
Do you feel the chills running down your back?
Does your mind start playing tricks on you?
Do you see my gaze stop the universe?
I try to whisper words to you I whisper them in the wind so that I bring them to you,
keep the window open and try to understand its meaning. I rest my palm on my glass side, you do the same.

THE SLAVERY OF COVID

Warlords do not make war but divide human beings into good and bad. A medical excuse is more than enough to discourage any living thing from its fate. In the meantime, too many hands cross each other in the important rooms to decide on insane actions. Poor citizens bugged as defective video games, which will be classified as infected or sick. There is no choice in the gastronomic oligarchy of the power giants and each menu belongs only to these gentlemen. We live among the daisies until they burn our mental petals to grant us some restless freedom. Meanwhile, large chains advance for those who raise their heads and say no. Sparse guerrillas have raised their voices but the flock follows only its usual shepherd bleating and drooling as always.
The economic recession due to the pandemic and the health crisis have certainly had a negative impact on family poverty, outlining a risk factor for boys, girls and adolescents. The forced closure of schools and the consequent effect of social isolation due to the spread of Covid-19 – especially in the first phase – have greatly increased the risk for under 18s of becoming victims of trafficking and sexual or labor exploitation. Going to school is in fact a fundamental protective factor, which protects from these forms of exploitation. According to the latest data available from the UNODC (United Nation Office in Drugs and Crime) Global Report on Trafficking in Persons 2020, for every 10 victims of trafficking – identified globally – 5 are women and 2 are girls. Overall, 50% of identified victims are trafficked for sexual exploitation, 38% subject to forced labor (about 25 million people), while 6% have been subjected to forced criminal activities and over 1% to begging. In a smaller percentage – but still considerable if compared to the total number of registered victims – it is the object of trafficking for forced marriages (about 16 million), organ harvesting and other purposes. It is estimated that 1 in 5 women in the world were forced to marry as a child. Regarding domestic slavery, although there are no precise data given the more hidden nature of the phenomenon, we can say with certainty that the phenomenon mainly involves women and girls under the age of 16.
One of the most widespread arguments in favor of mass anti-Covid vaccination is that it is the only way out of this pandemic and lockdown situation. Whether resignation or conviction matters little, the fact is that there is a general belief that once the vast majority of the population has been vaccinated, this long chapter of suffering can be closed. And the widespread adverse reactions – high fever, fatigue, general malaise for a few days – become an acceptable price to pay for regaining normalcy. However, there is a double miscalculation in all of this. First of all, the elites that govern us do not expect a return to pre-Covid conditions of life, we have been explicitly told in all sorts of ways. Even Prime Minister Mario Draghi, in the government’s programmatic speech, delivered to the Senate on 17 February, said very clearly – referring to the Word of Science – that “getting out of the pandemic will not be like turning the light back on”. But we will still have a chance to talk about this. Here, however, we would like to focus on the second wrong calculation, that of vaccines. In fact, what we are facing is not the hypothesis of a one-off vaccine that eradicates a disease, but the introduction to a vaccination logic that tends to be endless. This is not about being no-vax – we are not at all – but it is a pure matter of logic and common sense. The vaccines that are being inoculated have in fact limited coverage. How much? Nobody knows. The Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) states that “the observations made in the tests so far have shown that the protection lasts a few months, while it will be necessary to wait longer observation periods to understand if a vaccination will be sufficient for several years or will need to be repeated”. But the possibility of a multi-year coverage of the vaccine, aired by the ISS, is not reflected in the statements of the pharmaceutical companies concerned. Both Pfizer and Moderna, regarding the “duration of protection” affirm: «The duration of protection offered by the vaccine is not known; clinical trials aimed at establishing it are still underway ». As for Astrazeneca, on the other hand, nothing is said.
Therefore, it is not known. And it is for this reason – explains the Center for Control Disease of the United States – that those who have made the vaccine must still continue to wear the mask and maintain the so-called social distancing. In any case, no one bets on coverage lasting more than 9-12 months. This means that unless the coronavirus decides to spontaneously remove the ailment, the most likely prospect is an annual vaccination. Moreover, even assuming that – according to the latest commitments made by the government – herd immunity is achieved for September thanks to the vaccination campaign, at that point it will already be time to start over, given that in the meantime nine months have already passed. . Furthermore, for the many variants of the virus that are around and that are scary (even if the greater danger has not been verified), it is all to be shown that the vaccines already in distribution are equally effective: everything is to be seen, but also here the scenario probable is that of a continuous run-up to variants and relative systematic administration of vaccines. Even the probable vaccination passport, already introduced by China and which could soon become a reality in the European Union (the proposal will be presented on March 17), only makes sense as a function of continuous vaccination; otherwise in September-October, for the first who have been vaccinated, the passport will already be out of date.
Covid fear is irrational. In Italy there are about 35 thousand deaths, 0.049% of the Italian population. The risk of dying from Covid is minimal and concerns very old people and very few young people who are already sick. The government tried to contain the epidemic and then acted consistently. I would have done something different, but everyone should have agreed: the epidemic in fact arises when there is an overpopulation. We are not many on earth (seven billion) but, with the continuous coming and going of people, we are actually many more. The epidemic has the task of thinning the population. It is hard to say, he is Nietzschean, but the pandemic eliminates the least suitable and most vulnerable subjects.

NO MASCHERINE FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENT

German Neurologist Warns Against Wearing Facemasks: ‘Oxygen Deprivation Causes Permanent Neurological Damage’

by Henna Maria for Sott.net

This is one of the most important posts I have ever made, so please read it. I have written a transcript of some highlights from Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson’s recent and extremely pressing video message, which was translated from German into English by Claudia Stauber.

Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD is a Consultant Neurologist and Neurophysiologist with a PhD in Pharmacology, with special interest in neurotoxicology, environmental medicine, neuroregeneration and neuroplasticity. This is what she has to say about facemasks and their effects on our brains:

“The reinhalation of our exhaled air will without a doubt create oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation. There are nerve cells for example in the hippocampus that can’t be longer than 3 minutes without oxygen – they cannot survive.

The acute warning symptoms are headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, issues in concentration, slowing down of reaction time – reactions of the cognitive system.

However, when you have chronic oxygen deprivation, all of those symptoms disappear, because you get used to it. But your efficiency will remain impaired and the under-supply of oxygen in your brain continues to progress.

We know that neurodegenerative diseases take years to decades to develop. If today you forget your phone number, the breakdown in your brain would have already started 20 or 30 years ago.

While you’re thinking that you have gotten used to wearing your mask and rebreathing your own exhaled air, the degenerative processes in your brain are getting amplified as your oxygen deprivation continues.

The second problem is that the nerve cells in your brain are unable to divide themselves normally. So in case our governments will generously allow as to get rid of the masks and go back to breathing oxygen freely again in a few months, the lost nerve cells will no longer be regenerated. What is gone is gone.

I do not wear a mask, I need my brain to think. I want to have a clear head when I deal with my patients, and not be in a carbon dioxide-induced anaesthesia.

There is no unfounded medical exemption from face masks because oxygen deprivation is dangerous for every single brain. It must be the free decision of every human being whether they want to wear a mask that is absolutely ineffective to protect themselves from a virus.

For children and adolescents, masks are an absolute no-no. Children and adolescents have an extremely active and adaptive immune system and they need a constant interaction with the microbiome of the Earth. Their brain is also incredibly active, as it is has so much to learn. The child’s brain, or the youth’s brain, is thirsting for oxygen. The more metabolically active the organ is, the more oxygen it requires. In children and adolescents every organ is metabolically active.

To deprive a child’s or an adolescent’s brain from oxygen, or to restrict it in any way, is not only dangerous to their health, it is absolutely criminal. Oxygen deficiency inhibits the development of the brain, and the damage that has taken place as a result CANNOT be reversed.

The child needs the brain to learn, and the brain needs oxygen to function. We don’t need a clinical study for that. This is simple, indisputable physiology. Consciously and purposely induced oxygen deficiency is an absolutely deliberate health hazard, and an absolute medical contraindication.

An absolute medical contraindication in medicine means that this drug, this therapy, this method or measure should not be used, and is not allowed to be used. To coerce an entire population to use an absolute medical contraindication by force, there must be definite and serious reasons for this, and the reasons must be presented to competent interdisciplinary and independent bodies to be verified and authorised.

When, in ten years, dementia is going to increase exponentially, and the younger generations couldn’t reach their god-given potential, it won’t help to say “we didn’t need the masks”.

How can a veterinarian, a software distributor, a businessman, an electrical car manufacturer and a physicist decide on matters regarding the health of the entire population? Please, dear colleagues, we all have to wake up.

I know how damaging oxygen deprivation is for the brain, cardiologists know how damaging it is for the heart, pulmonologists know how damaging it is for the lungs. Oxygen deprivation damages every single organ.

Where are our health departments, our health insurance, our medical associations? It would have been their duty to be vehemently against the lockdown and to stop it and stop it from the very beginning.

Why do the medical boards issue punishments to doctors who give people exemptions? Does the person or the doctor seriously have to prove that oxygen deprivation harms people? What kind of medicine are our doctors and medical associations representing?

Who is responsible for this crime? The ones who want to enforce it? The ones who let it happen and play along, or the ones who don’t prevent it?

It’s not about masks, it’s not about viruses, it’s certainly not about your health. It is about much much more. I am not participating. I am not afraid.

You can notice, they are already taking our air to breathe. The imperative of the hour is personal responsibility. We are responsible for what we think, not the media. We are responsible for what we do, not our superiors. We are responsible for our health, not the World Health Organisation. And we are responsible for what happens in our country, not the government.”

HOW MANY WOMEN HAVE FIGHT FOR PEOPLE’S RIGHTS?

THIS PHOTO HAS TAKEN DURING THESE DAYS IN PERUVIAN BORDER. A WOMAN LAY ON THE GROUND TO PROTEST AGAINST THE CLOSURE OF THE BORDER.

HOW MANY WOMEN HAVE FIGHT FOR PEOPLE’S RIGHTS IN THE PAST? HO MANY WOEN HAVE RISKED THEIR LIVES TO CARRY ON IMPORTANT STRUGGLES?

Zuana Ajorduy Daughter of a mestizo mother and a white father, she was born in a territory that would become Bolivian, in the Viceroyalty of La Plata. Orphaned as a child, she spent a good part of her life in convents. Married at 25, he had five children. Together with Padilla, his companion, he was part of one of the small internal resistance formations, born after the defeat of the so-called urban movements. His determination, courage and enviable leadership earned him the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1816. Wounded in combat, still pregnant with her fifth child, her husband died trying to save her. In 1825 she was promoted to colonel, by decision of Simon Bolivar. He also fought in six major clashes against the monarchists in northern Upper Peru to secure independence processes. Years later, she died in poverty and was buried in a mass grave. Late acknowledged, it was in her honor that Argentina made the 12th of July, her birth, the Day of the Heroines and Martyrs of the Independence of America.
Micaela Bastidas Puyucahua, who was the leader of a rebellion in 1780, together with her husband José Gabriel Condorcanqui, Túpac Amaru II. The goal was to defeat and banish the colonizers, this desire having been consolidated by the abuses that were committed against the indigenous peoples. Her husband was the rebel leader in Puno, while she personally handled military operations in Cusco. On countless occasions it was she who established the strategies followed by Túpac Amaru II. In addition, she was a great administrator, taking over the reins of all the family businesses and rioters. The insurrection they led was fundamental to the subsequent Peruvian emancipation, achieved in 1821. Micaela was a Zamba, with both indigenous and African roots. He had three children and looked after them with attention similar to that which he gave to his people. After she became famous for her feats in the fight, she was offered cash prizes and noble titles for her capture. Defeated in a final battle, she and her husband were arrested and sentenced to death, along with other leaders. She entered the execution square, dragged by a horse, with tied hands and feet. In any case, I would have said “for the freedom of my people I have given up everything. I will not see my children blossom ”, having then cut off his tongue. She also needed to see one of her sons executed before she was strangled.

Leona Vicario was a standard in Mexican history, known as “the strong woman of independence” and considered the country’s first journalist, she was an intelligent Mexican, skilled in paintings, educated in politics, history and literature, and a descendant of honorable parents. María Soledad Leona Camila Vicario Fernández de San Salvador, her full name, was born 229 years ago, on April 10, 1789 in Mexico City. She was the only daughter of the Spanish merchant Gaspar Martín Vicario and Camila Fernández de San Salvador, originally from Toluca. At the age of 17 she was orphaned and under the tutelage of her uncle Agustín Pomposo Fernández. At the beginning of the War of Independence, Vicar joined the Insurgents, a movement in which he was a key player as he financed the rebel movement, sheltered fugitives, sent medicine, transmitted resources and information on any event that occurred in the viceroy court. In 1812 Vicar convinced a group of gunsmiths from Biscay to join the gang.
María Remedios del Valle is an Argentine soldier. Of African origin, he was born in Buenos Aires probably towards the end of 1766 or 67. His debut in battle dates back to the defense of the city of Buenos Aires during the first English invasion in 1806 in which he was part of the Andalusian Corps. After the revolution proclaimed on May 25, 1810 when the Spanish viceroy Baltasar Hidalgo de Cisneros was dismissed and the First Junta of the Argentine Government was established, Maria Remedios del Valle integrated the Northern Army, in which her husband and children had also enlisted. , and on 6 July 1810 he took part in the first expedition to Upper Peru (now Bolivia) against the Spanish domination. During the battle of San Miguel de Tucumán, in addition to fighting by encouraging the soldiers, he also took care of the wounded. For the value shown, General Belgrano appointed her Captain. During the battles of Salta and Felcapugio in which the Northern Army was defeated by the royalists, her husband and children were killed. Maria de Remedios continued to fight and care for the wounded along with other women known as “Las Niñas de Ayohuma”. She was taken prisoner along with five hundred other soldiers. Her escape attempt was discovered and she was flogged for nine days. However, he managed to escape by joining the troops of Martín Miguel de Guemes and Juan Antonio Álvarez de Arenales. After the independence declared in San Miguel de Tucumán on July 9, 1816, in 1827, General Juan José Viamonte, who had been his comrade in arms during the campaign of Upper Peru, recognized Maria de Remedios begging in the streets of Buenos Aires and lived in a state of total poverty. Thanks to his role as deputy of the government of the Province of Buenos Aires, Viamonte was able to support the request for a pension for the services provided by the Capitana.
Marielle Franco, the Brazilian activist killed six months ago in the Estacio neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. Elected in 2016 to the city council, she stood up for a long time in defense of the most marginalized people. Franco has fought numerous civil battles alongside the LGBT community, black women and young people from the favelas, achieving important results as a member of the State Commission for Human Rights. Her case is not isolated, as she herself denounced on Twitter the day before her assassination (March 13): “Another murder of a young man who could be credited to the police, […] how many more will have to die to end this war ? “. There is a harsh sentence on the police and army bodies which, not only in Brazil, are accused of brutally repressing activists and political dissidents.
María Isabel Chorobik de Mariani, best known as “Chica de Mariani”. who passed away on August 20, one of the founders of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo association – are calling for justice for their children and grandchildren, more than forty years after the fall of the Videla military junta and, for the Mexican towns, twenty-five years after the events in Ciudad Juarez. In the city on the border between Mexico and the United States, from 1993 to 2005 there were over 300 femicides and to date, in the north-eastern region of the country alone, six thousand people have disappeared into thin air. Above all, the brutal violence against rights defenders is worrying: the Brazilian Committee for Human Rights Defenders reports that, between January and September 2017, 62 activists were killed in Brazil, most of them engaged in defense of the territory and of local populations, as also documented by a report (At what cost ?, 2018) by the NGO Global Witness: in 2017, 207 ‘environmental activists’ lost their lives in South America.
Berta Cáceres Siding in defense of the Lenca indigenous community and committed to safeguarding the Río Gualcarque, Cáceres was awarded the prestigious international Goldman Environmental Prize (2015), which fueled deep aversions towards it. In Latin American ‘frontier spaces’, women’s courage collides with social prejudice, tested by political idiosyncrasies and threatened by criminal interests.
Mexico, reports an article from El Paìs, the protests of the ‘mitoteras’ have continued for months, thirty women desperate for uncensored children and husbands, ‘disappeared’ in the head-on confrontation that opposes the Mexican military to the drug cartels in the state of Tamaulipas, on the border with Texas. Karen, Jessica, Gabriela and Azeneth are just some of the women who, like the Argentine activist María ‘Chica’ de Mariani – who passed away on August 20, one of the founders of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo association – call for justice for their own children and grandchildren, more than forty years after the fall of the Videla military junta and, for the Mexican towns, twenty-five years after the events in Ciudad Juarez. In the city on the border between Mexico and the United States, from 1993 to 2005 there were over 300 femicides and to date, in the north-eastern region of the country alone, six thousand people have disappeared into thin air.
