Women in Mexico disappear.
Today is a historic day in my country, we’re fed up with gender violence in Mexico. They’re killing us. Picture this, you can’t walk outside your own house because you fear the worst, you fear that your clothes are too revealing, you fear that you’re too alone, you fear that you’re walking the wrong streets. Day after day you wake up to the news of another feminicide. They’re killing us. You see it, you hear it, you fear it. What if I’m the next one? You’re always wondering. They’re killing us. 
10 women are killed every day, only because they’re women. And it doesn’t matter where we are, what we’re wearing, who we are. It’s not our fault, because they keep killing us. 
If we keep up at this rate? What’ll be of us? 
Yesterday we marched. 
(None of the pictures are mine) 
Tumblr media
 “I march because I’m alive and I don’t know until when.” 
“Today, all our voices aren’t together because, from death, one can’t scream.” 
Tumblr media
"We’re not hysteric, we’re historic.” 
Tumblr media
“Mom, if you don’t find me, look up for me in the stars.” 
Yesterday we screamed. We flourished. 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
“Mom, don’t worry, today I’m not alone in the streets.” 
Our monuments bled to represent us. 
Tumblr media
We screamed. 
Tumblr media
But not today, today march 9th 2020. We silenced ourselves. 
Today, we disappeared. No social networks, not a single woman in the streets, not a single woman working, not a single woman studying, not a single woman at any store.
What would Mexico be without us? If you don’t want us in the streets, fine we’ll disappear.
Without us, you’ll collapse. 
Mexico woke up with no women ticket-sellers in the subway stations, no women tellers at the bank. 
Tumblr media
No women’s column on the newspapers. 
Tumblr media
No women at their jobs. 
Tumblr media
No women at school. 
Tumblr media
No women on the streets.
Tumblr media
Mexico woke up with no women. 
We can’t accept what we can’t change, but we will change what we can’t accept. 
We are angry, and we will rise. Because without us, you’re nothing.

Friday: Mexican government puts a 9.8ft barrier around National Palace and other buildings to “protect” them ahead of a planned march to mark International Women’s Day
Saturday: Women turn it into a memorial in honor of the thousands of victims who are murdered every year in Mexico just for being women

ok so !! 5 days until halloween, here’s your yearly reminder that día de muertos is  NOT in any way shape or form, a latinamerican equivalent to halloween. día de muertos holds huge cultural importance in mexico (can’t speak for other countries), it is a day where we celebrate our loved ones who have passed and they can cross back over to spend the night with us. it’s important to me and many others, please do not use it as a prop for your halloween decorations and costumes

Hey! Just a quick reminder that Cinco de Mayo is not widely celebrated in Mexico, nor is it Mexican Independence Day. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory in a battle against the French in 1862, in what is known as the Battle of Puebla, and it is only celebrated... well, in Puebla and in the US by white people who would probably yell at me to go back to my country if they ever caught me speaking Spanish in their presence.
Now if y’all still want to honor Mexico in this day, you might not be aware of the train that collapsed on Mexico City during the night on May 3th due to governmental negligence, which left several people gravelly injured and some people sadly passed away. They were all working class, and they don’t have the resources to pay their medical bills, and the government is not being helpful at all with their situation. Here’s an article about it and how you can help.
Also here are some links about what’s happening in Colombia and Latin America as a whole.

Scientists working off the western coast of Mexico say they have found a previously unknown species of whale.
Three beaked whales were spotted last month by a team of scientists working with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society near the San Benito Islands, some 300 miles from the US border, according to a press release published Tuesday.
The team had set out to try to find out what kind of whales were making an unidentified acoustic signal previously recorded in the area.
Beaked whale experts working alongside Sea Shepherd's scientific department managed to take photographs and video recordings of the three whales, and also recorded their acoustic signals using an underwater microphone.
