Why may not the oppressed say, when an oppressor is dead, either by disease or by the hand of the foeman on the battlefield, that there is one the less of his oppressors left on earth? For my part, I would not care if, to-morrow, I should hear of the death of every man who engaged in that bloody war in Mexico, and that every man had met the fate he went there to perpetrate upon unoffending MexicansFrederick Douglass speaking on the Mexican American War like the badass he is (via redplebeian)
"Into every generation a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. She is the Slayer.”
Today marks the 17th anniversary of the first episode ever aired. Happy Anniversary!
With clothes as bad as the show was amazing.
Candlelight vigil in memory of the 1932 uprising in Izalco, El Salvador. Following an uprising of mostly indigenous peasants against government repression and voting irregularities, state and militia forces killed perhaps 30,000 people. Popularly known as la matanza, this watershed event was understood to be the end of indigeneity in El Salvador for decades. After the end of the Cold War and communist claims, many people are reclaiming their history, and their identity.
Una marcha fue organizada en Izalco el 21 de enero 2014 para conmemorar el 82 aniversario de la levantamiento indígena de 1932. Los miembros de la “Alcaldía del Común”, una estructura de organización comunal de orígenes en la colonia, participaran de la procesión. Según los historiadores se calcula que el ejercito salvadoreño mato a 25 mil personas para sofocar el levantamiento de la población indígena en la zona occidental de El Salvador.
