I have been sick for 350 days now. I have been in pain constantly. the first 3 months, I could not sit up even. I am up 8 - 10 hours a day if I have a very light duty day (Reading, netflixing, visiting with friends). Any outing beyond the apartment cuts my daily up time in half or more. But this is it. This is as good as it gets now so i am learning to deal. Part of that was shearing off my nearly waist length hair because it was far too much to manage. this is the shortest I have ever had my hair and I love it. If I hadn’t gotten sick, I would never have known how much I like it. So here I am. No longer the Sociology graduate student but just me, just Stacey. And damn grrl, I am Hella enough!
43 college students were abducted on Sept. 26th in Guerrero, Mexico. Police and gunmen shot 6 students to death before taking the other 43. Mexico has taken some action by arresting the “mayor of the city of Iguala, José Luis Abarca; his wife, María de los Ángeles Pineda; and an aide and charged them with masterminding the attack.”
In México, we are all fighting against a president who can’t even keep us safe. 43 students from a rural university, between the ages of 18-30, were abducted and then murdered when they were on their way to a pacific event. Bullets came from municipalcops, and the order of shooting came directly from the governor of that particular region. Federal authorities have been covering their asses and the families of the students have no information about their people. Not even the dead bodies have been retrieved to them.
That’s why several universities from all the country have taken action.
We support the families and their claim for justice and peace.
I’ve been seeing that my people are doing this when their blogs are usually about fandoms and art. I feel the need to do this as well.
I’ve been reblogging things about the situation in my country, if you have seen it you know it’s about the usual oppression, murdered innocent people, violence, crimes, protests. But not just that, me, my mother, my siblings, my friends, MEXICO is finally getting up against the government (Because everything that happens here is because of the fucked up system). I DON’T reblog those posts to SEEM as someone cult, I DO IT BECAUSE I CARE, IT’S NOT SOMETHING TO BRAG ABOUT. It’s worrying, it’s exhausting, it’s hurting but it’s something that AT LEASTEVERY MEXICAN wherever you are SHOULD care about. It hurts me that I know a few mexican followers that just prefer to ignore it because it’s not something that goes with their blog. Let me tell you something, it’s NOT going to fade away, it’s NOT something just of a few days, it’s NOT going to make everything alright, it’s NOT going to disappear just by being ignorant about it. But it COULD fade away, it COULD make everything alright and it COULD solve if you reblog and inform others, because after all it’s SUPPORT. JUST. SUPPORT. We have come to the point where finally the government fears our people, finally we are pressing them! Finally we’re achieving to kick out all the corrupt politicians! DON’T LEAVE US ALONE. WE COULD CHANGE. WE COULD SAVE LIVES if you just don’t ignore us.
You can blacklist it, because I also and of course, don’t think nor want to force you all to give a reblog, a like, anything. So thanks if you read this and thanks, a lot, if you help us. Today for us, tomorrow for you.
The former mayor of the Mexican city of Iguala has been charged with the kidnapping of 43 students feared to have been murdered last year, a step toward justice in the highly publicized case that sparked violent demonstrations across the country last year.
“We think the municipal police took them - what we think happened is that they kept them somewhere and then, as we say, “disappeared” them - like so many thousands of others in this country who are missing.” —Omar Garcia
Mexico’s National/Presidential Palace (the seat of the Federal Executive) goes up in flames in a Protest for the 43 missing Ayotzinapa students.
My country is in the brink of a revolution. The people are angry, and the government is useless, we have politicians claiming to be ‘tired’ of how they’re being treated, well we are tired of being killed off by our own government. 43 students are missing, presumed dead, and the people responsible for this walk freely while our president is on a trip to China.
We are tired of being more afraid of our own police/government/army than of drug cartels, we are tired of fellow citizens being murdered in cold blood.
Us students are tired of being in danger just for the fact that we exist.
People say that we are the future of Mexico, but there can be no future if there is no next generation.
Foreigners, please read and share this, please help us bring awareness to this situation that looks about to become a full blown civil war, please help us so that there will be no more cases like the 43 we have now. Please help us fight our government.
