The BIGGEST protest ever in Mexico is happening, but almost no media coverage. In some countries like USA and the UK even YouTube videos have been removed.

Some context, for anyone like me who didn’t know this was a thing. Good job, American news.

This video was so beautiful! It is bullshit that it didn’t pass. But people are fed up and are tired of not being recognized in this movement. They are ready to be more than just a person of color who is willing to get arrested for something that isn’t recognizing their participation and their struggles. ahhhh… I started to tear up watching this video, because I want to be this inspired again! That person talking about women of color, that person at the end, that person talking about indigenous land… ohhhhh and then that white man talking about land that’s owed to him… I heard people laughing in the crowd!!! hahaha

#DecolonizeOakland!!!! #Decolonize

Not since the days of Zapatistas’ Subcomandante Marcos has Latin America been so charmed by a rebel leader. This time, there is no ski mask, no pipe and no gun, just a silver nose ring.
Meet Commander Camila, a student leader in Chile who has become the face of a populist uprising that some analysts are calling the Chilean winter. Her press conferences can lead to the sacking of a minister. The street marches she leads shut down sections of the Chilean capital. She has the government on the run, and now even has police protection after receiving death threats.
Wednesday saw the start of a two-day nationwide shutdown, as transport workers and other public-sector employees joined the burgeoning student movement in protest.
“There are huge levels of discontent,” said Vallejo in a recent interview. “It is always the youth that make the first move … we don’t have family commitments, this allows us to be freer. We took the first step, but we are no longer alone, the older generations are now joining this fight.”
“We do not want to improve the actual system; we want a profound change – to stop seeing education as a consumer good, to see education as a right where the state provides a guarantee.
“Why do we need education? To make profits. To make a business? Or to develop the country and have social integration and development? Those are the issues in dispute.”
