if you’re Irish this is the best thing ever
The president of Ireland is a head of state (like the Queen) and not directly involved in policy, which is a shame ‘cause he’s a total badass.
Mary Robinson, mentioned towards the end, was the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights until 2002 and the first female (of 2 so far) president of Ireland, elected in 1990. She was pressured out of the UN job and made out to be an anti-semite by the Bush Administration after criticizing the “war on terror”, and the propriety of their relationship with Israel.
A foreign supporter of Barack Obama…Listen to Michael D. Higgins (who was elected president of Ireland last year) is fed up with over-the-top Tea Party rhetoric, and he isn’t afraid to show it. Listen to him call out radio host Michael Graham on everything from health care to foreign policy in this heated exchange from 2010. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one.
Ongoing Mexico Revolution - Ignored by the Media
Mexico, July 11, 2012. The largest protest in human history. USA and UK governments pushed the press not to publish. Google censored videos on youtube and restricted keywords on this event.
The Mexican media has blacking out the protests against their new government, who have been accused of doing everything from buying votes to buying off the media.
If the corporate media won’t spread this story, then let’s spread the story. Share this all over your pages and your friend’s pages and help support the democracy movement in Mexico.
Wow, what the fuck.
whoah, i heard nothing about this?
thats scary as hell
JESUS SHIT I HAVE FAMILY IN MEXICO
The caption on this image is completely misleading. This image is taken from a June 28th article about a political rally. While there were allegations of election fraud and vote buying after the election, the above photo is a Marxist.com picture of a rally in favor of a particular candidate from during the recent Mexico election in early July. The rally had about 1.2 million people, which is not larger than the 2003 anti-Iraq War protests in Rome (as well as many other cities around the world, reaching about 10 million total that day.) And it is not larger than the 20th century Indian non-compliance protests against the British (which is thought to be larger than the Anti-Iraq War protests of 2003, but because it wasn’t a rally it can’t actually be counted.)
Regardless of size though, it’s not a protest or a revolution. The reason the US presses wont cover it is because they don’t normally follow the elections in Mexico, and they don’t normally cover political rallies in Mexico.
The claims that Google has been censoring information about this is just silly. I found a Forbes.com article about AMLO (the name of the candidate that this photo’s rally was for) through google. Google “June 28th AMLO Zocalo” and you’ll find plenty on information and videos of this rally. Searching about it on the independent search engine duckduckgo doesn’t return anything being “hidden” by google.
Now, within Mexico, it is true that the two major television networks didn’t cover this rally and suppressed information about it, but that’s just television and just Mexico.
Guys, when you see stuff on Tumblr claiming to be news this radical, look at who is posting it and if they’ve posted any sources. Electric-Squid just posted this caption on the image, with no source or anything. The rest of their blog is just a normal hipster blog and nothing about it makes them seem like a reputable source of news about this event. I reverse-image searched this and found plenty of information about the actual event pretty easily.
There’s no revolution in Mexico, just politics as usual. This is most comparable to the Gore-Bush dispute of 2001.
“comparable to the Gore-Bush dispute of 2001.” Except in Mexico there are 1.2 million people in the street.
If you’ve seen a better picture of a dog dressed as two dogs carrying a present today, I don’t believe you.
Olympic commentator’s are jerks
