The Day of the Dead in Mexico 2014 was filled with more pain than ever.
expressing still, their hopes for peace, need for it, a society free of racism, need it. A society free of hunger, must be it. A society free of killings a must!
Years of the disappearance of so many people as the world went on, years of losing journalists, years of terror and now:
Ayotzinapa killing is chilling and even when all the other killings were stilling souls every day as Nightbird flew... this time we join the uprising.
Nightbird received a letter from Guadalajara and she is here blogging at the same time to join the demonstrations:
People are FINALly AWAKEning to the horrors they have been living since 2006, which produced a country filled with MASSGRAVES. Juan and I are going to march in our city. Mexico is UPRISING. I have never seen such a thing. Such indignation, in a very subdued people... but the 100 000 victims of that war and the 30 000 still missing seem to deny the fact that Mexicans in general are very sweet people non-violent people.
Let the world know: the fact that news of this message went around the world and caused an uproar, I am sure, prevented more killings and saved lives. The government cancelled the military parade of November 20th (today is the anniversary of the Mexican Revolution) for the first time in history
An interesting thing is people have come out not just in Spanish. Nightbird got information just when she was asking where we are with all these languages...That people are talking in their own languages about their pain: Nhauatl, tzoltzil, Maya, Zapoteco, Zoque and Purepecha and more.
Yes, pass on that microphone and make it louder.
