You are free now, to entrust your soul by penetrating only the first layer of pleasure, free, to have enclosed every moment in your breath, free to slip into dark, hidden, bitter places, to bear the weight of the world alone, while you listen. the music confide in you the secrets you don’t tell, send the senses to addresses where nothing speaks more of you, free to pretend not to know that freedom vanishes when you stop listening to yourself, to believe that duty is the greatest love, to give in to the moral blackmail of a social restriction, erasing all truth, free from what you wanted most of your life, you are free?
What does it mean to be free? Freedom is the ability to act without constraints and impediments. But what does it mean concretely, in everyday life, to be free? I think that in the end the value of freedom can be interpreted differently, or sometimes even misrepresented. For me, freedom is choosing based on my ideas, being who I want to be, living how I want to live. To be able to make mistakes, to suffer, to regret any of these decisions, but to know that it depended solely on me and on what I felt was right. Freedom for me is authenticity. Accept myself, in what I am, including defects, in order to live a life that is mine. And to do this it is necessary to recognize the freedom of the other, what makes him free, although it may seem wrong to me. It is not true that my freedom ends where that of the other begins, but simply recognizing that of the other opens me up to a much greater horizon of freedom. Only in this way can authentic liberation be achieved. And the men who fight to make it happen are heroes. It is not easy to be free, it requires the greatest courage and the greatest responsibility. We have the courage to be free.
But what is freedom? I say that it is the possibility of choosing what can make us feel good in our small way, a decision that can go against everyone and everything. Freedom is something that we must know how to control to make it ours in all respects and to be able to live it in the right way so that it can guide us, taking us far away, to the place where it is captured in its purest essence. With freedom we go to the rediscovery of deep emotions, great desires and strong experiences. There is nothing more beautiful than feeling that responsibility on you in having to choose yourself, when you want and how you want, accompanied by that adrenaline energy that flows through your veins and pumps your heart strongly, feeding your soul with joy and admiration. towards the world. Nobody, I mean nobody, must stop us on our way. A passion, a goal, a dream, a desire are ingredients for the recipe of our success, we must conquer them, with all our strength. So try it, drop everything, indulge in the magic of being free, fill yourself with hope and run towards the journey that awaits you.


Was Gandhi a special man?
No. He was a man so shy and awkward that he passed out the first time he had to speak in public.
He was a meek, perfectly normal man, like so many others.
But he said NO.
He no longer wanted to accept the power that destroyed his people.
So you decided to oppose in a very strong way, how?
Using nonviolent resistance.
The salt march (दांडी मार्च) was a non-violent demonstration that took place from March 12 to April 5, 1930 in India by Mahatma Gandhi, in the context of Satyagraha, that is, passive and non-violent resistance.
Salt was essential in Indian food and its production was placed under a rigid state monopoly, managed by the British colonial government. It was not possible to produce salt personally, through the evaporation process, nor to collect the sea salt that was deposited on the beaches.

Only the British could benefit from the income deriving from the possession of the mineral, an essential element of the country's diet, to the detriment of the workers who could not produce it or even collect it on the beaches.
In response to the British salt tax Gandhi organized and led what will remain one of the most famous protests in history: the salt march. Many of his comrades were initially skeptical but later joined him.

Gandhi did not change his mind: the salt monopoly hurt both Hindi and Muslims, rich and poor. On 2 March he wrote a letter to the British Viceroy Lord Irwin and made a series of requests, including the repeal of the salt tax. If ignored, he promised to launch a non-violent campaign. Governor Irwin gave no reply.

At dawn on March 12, 1930, Gandhi put his plan into action. Wearing a homemade shawl and sandals, holding a wooden walking stick, he set out on foot from his ashram near Ahmedabad with several dozen companions and began the overland journey to the city of Dandi in the Arabian Sea. Seventy-eight men left the village: their names had been published in the newspapers for the police to know. Gandhi planned to defy the salt tax by illegally collecting the mineral from the beach. Perhaps he was hoping for an arrest which the British did not make out of fear of public reaction.

With Gandhi in the lead, the crowd crossed the countryside at a speed of about 20km per day. Gandhi stopped in dozens of villages along the way to address the masses and condemn the salt tax. As Gandhi and his followers advanced towards the west coast, thousands of Indians joined the procession, turning the small group of protesters into a mile-long procession. The New York Times and other newspapers began to follow the progress of the march. Gandhi in his speeches spoke of the injustices of the caste system which deprived the "untouchables" of fundamental rights; astounded those who followed him by bathing in an "untouchable" well in the village of Dabhan. During a layover in Gajera, he refused to begin his speech until the untouchables were allowed to sit with the rest of the audience.

Gandhi and his group finally arrived in Dandi on April 5, having traveled 400 km in 24 days. The next morning, thousands of reporters and supporters gathered to see him commit his symbolic offense. After diving into the sparkling waters of the Arabian Sea, he walked ashore among the beach's many salt deposits. British officials appear to have mixed salt with sand in hopes of frustrating Gandhi's efforts. It was all in vain: I found a lump of mud rich in salt Gandhi lifted it and showed it to the crowd "With this" he said, "we have shaken the foundations of the British Empire."





The well-known Italian television director, Colabona, creator of successful programs for both Rai and Mediaset, in an interview-complaint in April 2009, released to the television station Napoli TV, highlighted the above phenomenon. In fact, he stated:

 “Pay attention to all those messages that we television directors give you because they are almost never reality. We want you to believe that reality is what we tell you through our programs but it is not quite so. Behind the scenes of the programs, a television is being made that is objectively leading us all to cultural degradation (…). We all accept to be inside a system which we do not have the courage to oppose and which suits us. However, let's face it, they give us the money to keep you from thinking ”.


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.


This girl is called Emma Gonzalez is one of the survivors of the "usual" shooting in a school in the USA, which took place a few days ago, with 17 victims and below is a list of who she is challenging in this exciting speech:

1) a president of the United States,
2) multinational arms manufacturing companies that together make $ 240 billion a year
3) the NRA (National Rifle Association) which is an organization that acts in favor of those who own a firearm and is one of the most influential political lobbies.
4) is challenging a parliament with many of them being part of the 5 million members of the aforementioned NRA
5) a national congress
6) the second amendment (law for the possession of firearms)
7) human violence

Among the many things that are said in our newspapers, among the many articles that are published online, I have not seen even one, only one that narrates about this young woman. It is not even our fault that much, because on google I found only two in the cross of articles about her in Italian. The news is different in our country, especially in this moment of the electoral campaign. Of course, I suppose the news of the shooting will have been in the newspapers, because “How beautiful the blood, how beautiful the tragedies”, “They make an audience”, they say. But you should know how beautiful these words, these lucid and desperate cries at the same time.
This girl, Emma, ​​began by saying a sentence: "We will be the last mass shooting." She also said publicly "To all politicians who have received gifts from RNA, be ashamed."
The nineteen-year-old boy who killed 17 boys belonged to a white supremacist group.
Many now remember that one of Donald Trump's first moves after taking office in the White House was to cancel a legislation wanted by Barack Obama to prevent the mentally ill from getting into possession of a weapon. Thus, the requirement for the Social Security Administration to report to the FBI people who receive assistance for their disability and who have mental problems was removed. The standard affected about 75,000 people with mental disorders.

Maybe you think that this does not concern us, that it is another country and it is enough to always think of the Americans and instead it concerns us, it concerns us reacting to something that is not right. This girl is to be taken as an example for many things: she is speaking after a shock in which she saw 17 people die in front of her eyes just over 48 hours before and the only strength she has to speak is why it doesn't happen anymore .
Thanks Emma for staying human, even the children know that a man with a weapon does not stop giving another man another weapon, he simply stops producing weapons for everyone, not giving them to citizens.

Today, in Brazil, about two thousand activists live under the threat of ‘pistoleiros’. Among them, Sônia Bonê Guajajara, vice president of the Coordination of Indigenous Organizations for the Brazilian Amazon. The main organization fighting for the defense of the indigenous people, COIAB represents about 450,000 Indians from the Amazon.
According to the Survival organization, a supporter of all indigenous people in the world, 305 tribes live in Brazil, about 900,000 people, and most of the protected territories inhabited by indigenous peoples are located in the Amazon, 98.5% of the total. Between the fifties, sixties and seventies, numerous indigenous people suffered violence, from murder to the theft of land, due to economic activities such as the rubber trade, the construction of hydroelectric dams and intensive farming: unfortunately several tribes disappeared forever.
Despite being constitutionally recognized and having the support of numerous organizations, indigenous tribes are now more than ever under attack from the Bolsonaro government. A desired territory from an economic point of view, for the presence of mineral reserves (a "gold fever" is threatening the existence of the Yanomami people in northern Brazil) and for a strong agricultural interest. The Brazilian president, already in the electoral campaign, flaunted his hostility towards the indigenous people: among his first acts, in fact, he took away the right to manage the lands from the Brazilian Department of Indigenous Affairs, entrusting it to the Ministry of Agriculture: expansion of the lobbies of agricultural owners in the Amazon no longer has obstacles.

Over the past 25 years, more than 1,500 people have been killed in Brazil, in war over land exploitation. Murders that resulted in a trial officer being released. But only one of the principals ended up in prison.

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.

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.
