This Saturday died Mario Soares, a man we called the "Father of Democracy", a man who while young fought the Far-Right dictatorship (got arrested and tortured multiple times), that after the end of dictatorship was responsible for uniting the people against a Communist attempt to take power, a man that was prime minister and then President of our country, and the man who was responsible for Portugal entrance to the European Union, with all the benefits that brought to our nation.

RIP Mario Soares, for your description he was a truly democratic politician, in Latin America we have many "democratic" politicians who are really comunist, this is not the case.

looting in mexico :lol:

 

 

 

Well that's just half of the real story happening in my country... Yes last week there were some protests against the increase in fuel prices that turned into chaos and looting... this was exploited by the Government to spread the panic and to organize groups to replicate the lootings... however the citizens were already ware of that and avoided more lootings.

 

This weekend I took part in a pacific protest along at least 10,000 others in my city, urging the government to reduce the salaries of the elected oficials, to punish corruption and to lower the tax in fuel (which represent almost half of the final retail price). There were similar protests in other cities and towns, so finally, the Mexican people is starting to show how upset are we of this inept and corrupt administration.

 

Here is a link to the event page in FB...

Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani one of the most important persons in the history of Iran died yesterday at 82.

 

He was number 2 (or maybe even the real number 1) for so many years, 30 maybe. he was a key person in 1979 revolution and that bloody 8 years Iran-Iraq war, actually the one who ended the war. so many secrets and stories die with him. for years he was the most hated person in Iran and since life is unpredictable (and so the politics in Iran) he eventually died as a "good man" and people are actually mourning for him. Good or bad, his death will be a big blow for Hassan Rohani
