United States Helps Censor the Internet in Mexico

The Mexican government through the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City censored 1dmx.org, a citizen portal denouncing human rights violations, say members of #1DMX.

Activists today launched op1d.mx, a campaign to draw attention to government censorship of democratic protest. Lawyers also informed the public of a lawsuit of the Mexican government during a press conference at the DF Human Rights Commission office on Tuesday.

For more information, follow hashtag #CensuraMEXta.

The Mother Languages of Mexico

February 21 is International Mother Language Day as declared by UNESCO in 1999. This special date is meant to promote awareness of multilingualism, as well as cultural and linguistic diversity.

Mother Language Day is also an important time to celebrate the richness of Mexico’s traditional Indigenous culture and knowledge.

Here Are Some Important Facts About Mexico’s Mother Languages:

- There are 68 mother (Indigenous) languages, including 364 regional varieties (dialects), spoken in Mexico.

- According to a 2010 census report, there are 6,913,362 speakers of a mother language in Mexico.

- 6.6% of Mexico’s total population speaks a mother language.

- Oaxaca is Mexico’s most linguistically diverse state with 15 distinct Indigenous languages, including 179 dialects of these languages. 31% of the state’s population speaks a mother language, the highest rate of any state in the nation.

- Nahuatl is the most spoken mother language of Mexico with 1,544,968 native speakers.

- Maya (796,113), Mixteco (471,710), Zapoteco (425,123), Otomi (284,992), Totonaco (244,033), Mazateco (223,073) all have more than 200,00 native speakers.

- Huasteco (161,121), Chinanteco (131,382), Mazahua (135,897), Mixe (132,759), Purépecha (124,494), Tlapaneco (120,072) all have more than 100,00 native speakers.

- Despite much being made about languages dying out in Mexico, the total numbers of speakers of a mother language is increasing.

- Indigenous speakers have been emigrating in larger numbers to the United States. In California alone, there are 23 Indigenous languages spoken by people from 13 Mexican states, as registered by INALI.

Chocolate: An Act of Resistance

Cacao growing is being kept alive in Mexico by a fierce (and loving) grandma

In Mexico, Chocolate isn’t just a sweet treat. It is a food steeped in history and spirituality that has lost its place in Mexican agriculture and production. This is a story about bringing it back.

but then again, its kind like putting a meat suit on and telling a shark not to eat you

We (men) are not fucking sharks!
We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct
We are capable of rational thinking and understanding. 
Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it. 
Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.
Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them. 
You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed. 
What is so fucking difficult about this concept?




How can you not reblog something like this

THAT IS WHAT I WAS TRYING TO EXPLAIN YESTERDAY ^ OMG

Remember how these images of anti-gay discrimination got people upset because they “stole” other people’s oppressed histories to make a point?

I’m bringing these back not to oppress anyone, but because this is literally what it could look like in Kansas soon.  

Literally. 

People will legally be able to do things like this.  If this does not scare you, I don’t know what will.  

WHY
