have i said happy MX independence yet?

que felices fiestas patrias—cuando mi abue takes off to TJ after getting a call a media noche, era mi tía avisándonos que acuchillaron y asaltaron a mi tío on his way home from work. mi tío cruza la frontera de EEUU & MX todo los días porque es piñatero por aca, y todavia vive en Tijuana, Baja CA, MX. lo acuchillaron 3 veces, por el oido, cuello, y riñon todo por una pinche mochila. que symbolism of so called independencia de MX cuando nuestra gente is forced out to work, struggling to survive.

son las experiencias como estas que capturan el México que yo conozco. historias of being fucked over by multinationalist corporations, pero chingadamadre, siempre en lucha. Resistencia, de migration, crossing so many damn white-settler-borders to survive. Mi México esta lleno de fe y amor tambien, pero caray que fuerza para poder sentir amor porque al final todos estamos en la lucha para sobrevivir pa’lante. fue el neo.liberal, globalization, capitalist powers que forzaron a mis padres cruzar la frontera, pero tambíen el amor y la fe de salir adelante. but fuck.

que independencia de MX, chale cuando nuestra gente is forced out to work, que pinche sovereignty y que ocho cuartos. nuestra frontera no es soverignty, no, the globalization//neoliberalist capistalist powers make it una herida abierta (bien dicho, eduardo galeano!). 

but fuck man. “independence” independencia nacional? puhlease, don’t try n fool me. even in East Los. EAST MOTHAFUCKING LOS, we celebrate casi cada tradición nacional de MX, cos we in mothdafucking califaztlan. I grew up going to el desfile de la independencia de MX on Cesar Chavez Blvd. lleno de folklorico, danza, mariachi, charros en caballos bailarines (como los de chente), and sure the basic LA city fire dept, but haaay we  recognizing and celebrating all who make our community. nuestra cultura. El gran mariscal, siempre era un artista méxicano. the last time, i’d gone, el gran mariscal era Pablo Montero, and I remember mi amá goin cray when she saw him, aventandolé besos. 

wanna know who was el gran mariscal this year, 2014? FUCKING Disney’s micky mouse & minnie mouse—the mothafucking corporation that wanted to buy the fkn rights for their dia de los muertos film. fml i can’t con todo este coraje que siento aveces. how forced migration keeps happening to our people. cos this is what gentrification feels like. its the disappearing of nuestra gente quienes son nuestro pueblo.

please at least say hi to the people cleaning up after you where ever you are (janitors, dorm crew, etc.)…a “thank you” every now and then would be nice too…they gotta literally deal with your garbage on a daily basis so it’s the least you could do

Report: Honeybee Death Rate Is Currently Too High for Survival of the Species 

ghostofcommunism:

divacuppa:

A government report released last week surprisingly admits that the honeybee species are dying off at a rate too high to ‘guarantee their long term survival’.

It has been well proven that the primary factor leading to this extinction is the presence of neonicotinoid poisons, of course present in insecticides sold by and/or used by corporations such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dupont and their products. A recent study from Harvard, published on March 27th of this year, has definitively confirmed what scientists outside the US have been saying for years: neonicotinoids are the [emphasis added] cause of colony collapse disorder(CCD). The study showed that 50% of colonies populated by bees who had been in contact with these pesticides collapsed, compared to only 1 in 6 who were not in contact with neonicotinoids.

The European Union understands that the death of honeybees is an unprecedented death for human beings and mother earth, as they have banned neonicotinoid poisons.

However, American powers refuse to believe the problem is neonicotinoid insecticides and they continue to be in use here.

These corporations with armies of lobbyists and politicians bought and paid for, like  Monsanto, are playing dumb and suggesting that ‘mites’ are the cause for the death rate of honeybees, a problem so bad that it means their extinction if they continue on this path. This is dangerous anti-science rhetoric, borderline scientific denialism from the American agro-chemical establishment. 

Well, did mites cause the honeybees to go extinct in the approximate 14 million years they survived here before humans invented neonicotinoid chemicals? Of course not. It seems only things as foreign to Earth as neonicotinoids can cause such a drastic loss of crucial life on our planet and the solution is obvious; inform people that if we keep allowing the honeybees to die at this rate, we will be literally without almost all of the fruits we enjoy. Oh and stop using neonicotinoids.

If we don’t seriously stop this soon, then a corporation like Monsanto would likely take advantage of the lack of bees to pollinate and create fruit, and attempt to monopolize the products of nature because the fruits will then require individual, manual pollination or more complex measures. While this may seem far fetched, in the absence of honeybees and acknowledging that manual pollination is highly labor intensive, micro pollinator drones may be in our future if something is not done to save the bees.

If you are reading this, there is a good chance absolutely none of this information is new. If the bees are not nursed back to health as a species, say goodbye to these things- (unless you want genetically modified, manually pollinated products of Monsanto in the wake of the extinction of the honeybee): Apples Mangos Rambutan Kiwi Fruit Plums Peaches Nectarines Guava Rose Hips Pomegranites Pears Black and Red Currants Alfalfa Okra Strawberries Onions Cashews Cactus Prickly Pear Apricots Allspice Avocados Passion Fruit Lima Beans Kidney Beans Adzuki Beans Green Beans Orchid Plants Custard Apples Cherries Celery Coffee Walnut Cotton Lychee Flax Acerola – used in Vitamin C supplements Macadamia Nuts Sunflower Oil Goa beans Lemons Buckwheat Figs Fennel Limes Quince Carrots Persimmons Palm Oil Loquat Durian Cucumber Hazelnut Cantaloupe Tangelos Coriander Caraway Chestnut Watermelon Star Apples Coconut Tangerines Boysenberries Starfruit Brazil Nuts  Beets Mustard Seed Rapeseed Broccoli Cauliflower Cabbage Brussels Sprouts Bok Choy (Chinese Cabbage) Turnips Congo Beans Sword beans Chili peppers, red peppers, bell peppers, green peppers Papaya Safflower Sesame Eggplant Raspberries Elderberries Blackberries Clover Tamarind Cocoa Black Eyed Peas Vanilla Cranberries Tomatoes Grapes

can’t say no one predicted this

down with monsanto

Our food system is extremely dependent on honey bees, if they die out, it’s going to start to collapse. Smash Big Agro before it’s too late.
