Nope… perhaps one day… I can’t decide whether the printing press is a symbol of subversion or uniformity either. Still is high up on my tattoo idea list (vying with a stone cairn)
Degenerative Cubism afflicts 12% of Spanish cattle. If the disease were ever to become airborne, it’s estimated that all beef cattle in the country would be little more than a few lines leaving the impression of cattle within one month.
A realism vaccine was developed in 1994 but has occasional surrealist side effects, turning 2% of cattle injected into two arguing mimes and a waffle.
1. A student spoke to fellow protesters as students and other groups prepared to march in support of Oaxaca’s striking teachers in Oaxaca, Mexico, in early October. The march became violent when protesters clashed with riot police.
2. Students and other groups protested in front of the governor’s office in favor of striking Oaxaca teachers.
3. Protesters carried signs shortly before violence broke out between protesters and riot police in Oaxaca in early October.
4. Riot police in Oaxaca ran to block protesters after violence broke out in a march in support of striking teachers.
5.Teacher Liliana Toledo attended to her students at the Rosario Maza preschool in Oaxaca. Ms. Toledo is a member of union Section 59, which didn’t go on strike. She works in a house that has been turned into a school.
6. Parents from the community of El Manantial worked to finish building a primary school. Many of the parents make their living foraging through garbage at a nearby dump.
7. Adriana Garcia, a primary schoolteacher, taught reading to one of her students at a school in the community of El Manantial. Unlike most of Oaxaca’s teachers, who belong to union Section 22, Ms. Garcia, a member of the much smaller union Section 59, didn’t go on strike.
8. Carmen Lopez, a six year old, worked at her desk at a primary school in El Manantial on the outskirts of the city of Oaxaca. The school, which is made from metal sheeting, is unfinished and lacks electricity.
9. Parents at the Benito Juarez primary school in Milpa listened to speeches at the opening of the school, which had been shut down by a strike of teachers belonging to union Section 22. Frustrated parents forced the school to open and brought in teachers from union Section 59.
10. Amado Morales, the president of the parents association of the Benito Juarez primary school in Mitla, talked to parents. Mr. Morales, a lawyer, said parents would run striking teachers out of town ‘with sticks, stones, and fists’ if the teachers, who are returning to class on Monday, try to take back the school, which is now being staffed by teachers who didn’t go on strike.
It doesn’t matter what way you look at it: eating corn is cultural appropriation.
-corn was cultivated over thousands of years by people indigenous to turtle island
-corn is considered sacred by those same people
-the use of corn has been central to colonial expansion and settler colonialism more generally
Next post: tomatoes and hot chocolate
What if the idea of “culture” as a bounded thing that belongs to a certain people is a byproduct of colonial and capitalist gaze that sought to classify and commodify the worlds of non-western people? Does relying on notions of cultural property as part of an anti-racist project inadvertently impose a western ideology about culture? How can we fight racist implications of cultural “theft” if the very condition of possibility of that theft is the commodification of that culture?
What is forgotten screens what is remembered. The persuasiveness of a historical account, like that of a magical performance, depends on rendering invisible the artifice of its production. Just as history refers ambiguously to the past in its completeness and to the selective remembering of stories about the past, magic alludes to an extraordinary reality as well as to the selective presentation of the elements that create the illusion of its existence through invisible tricks that exploit distraction and diversion. Like history, magic hangs suspended between fiction and fact, trick and truth.Fernando Coronil in The Magical State
Hurry up, comrade, shoot at once on the policeman, the judge, the wealthy, before a new police will hinder you. Hurry up and say no, before a new repression convinces you that to say no is nonsensical and crazy and that you should accept the hospitality of an asylum. Hurry up and attack the capital, before a new ideology makes it sacred for you. Hurry up and refuse work, before a new sophist tells you: Work makes you free. Hurry up and play. Hurry up and arm yourself.Alfred Bonanno
