Here our dear friend Natalia Avendaño Muiño stands in front of her portrait, Natalia’s Letters, at the opening of, I Know Not These My Hands, at Fotografiska.
Two years ago, Natalia discovered a worn out pale green manila folder in her closet. It contained a forty-year old stack of letters, the correspondence between her Chilean father, Renato Leopold Avendaño Gutiérrez, and her Uruguayan mother, Gloria Nestar Jesusa Muiño Bentos.
In March of 1973, Renato, a member of the Tupamaros, was incarcerated at the outset of the Civic-Military Dictatorship of Uruguay. During the three years of his imprisonment, Gloria and Renato kept in touch through letters with moments of coded language. She, in her elegantly placed cursive, he, with a mangled typewriter. There are long passages in Renato’s letters where he is just looking at her, recounting her in every detail, following the passage of time in the new lines on her face. @coopergorfer #Iknownotthesemyhands #fotografiska #coopergorfer #uruguay #militarydictatorship #loveletters

Part of our skit at ENGAGE's direct action at the Thai Embassy in LA against the proposed constitution that is to be voted on Aug. 7th (that further empowers the military dictatorship and legal kidnapping currently happening there, etc). We were holding signs because our comrades in Thailand would be thrown in jail for doing the same!

This is it, a glimpse of Mario Benedetti's career in one anthology, and being a poet of commitment throughout his life, it also serves as a nation's history. From early satire, to urgency of struggle (one poem dedicated to Raul Sendic), to years in exile, to seeking of post-authoritarian closure, ending in elderly introspection that is as biting as his early poems.
SLOWLY BUT SURELY
The future's coming slowly
slowly
but surely

right now it's hidden beyond
the surly clouds
and some still invisible
nimble heights
beyond the thunder's roar
and the spider's web

it's taking its time
like a determined flower
keeping track of the sun

perhaps that's why
daily life
prepares to greet it
settling exorbitant debts
opening new chapters in memory

but the future's
in no hurry
it's coming
slowly
finally bringing relief
bread for the hungry
battered angles
faithful swallows

slow
but not half-hearted

neither smug
nor a spoilsport
it's simply
coming
with its sharpened blade
and weighing scales
inquiring first
about our dreams
then our homelands
our latent memories
and our newborns

slowly
the future's coming
with its mondays and marches
its clenched fists and dark-ringed eyes and prjoects
slowly but swiftly
like a dim
still unnamed star

convalescent and slow
sheepish
proud
so very modest
that well-versed future we're shaping
we
and chance
but more and more we
less and less chance.

8: Chilean Military Coup d'état (1973) --
The Chilean Military Coup of 1973 was a conflict between the right wing Congress if Chile and the socialist president Salvador Allende. -- The Chilean Government was supported by Cuba and the Soviet Union and the right wing opposition was supported by the Chilean Armed forces, the United States, and Australia. -- Augusto Pinochet led the opposition to Allende. Once a Socialist himself, the revolutionary became an avid capitalist and wanted to change the political situation in Chile. -- The CIA has denied involvement in the Coup but does not deny being aware of it. The Australian Secret Intelligence Service, on behalf of the CIA, was in Santiago to investigate the occurrences in the city. -- René Schneider, the leader of the armed forces in Chile; was a key opposition to the Coup, so the CIA sent weapons to right-wing rebels to kidnap René Schneider, but he was instead killed. -- In the end the Coup was successful, as the army, navy, and air force bombed and disabled communist media and Allende was falsely told that only a small part of his military turned against him. Army forces were ordered to surround the presidential palace and in the end, Allende was killed. -- Augusto Pinochet came to power as the leader of Chile, establishing a military Junta and cracking down on communist sympathisers in the country. -- Cold War Proxy War #8

Athens, Greece
Protesters walk past a burning barricade after clashes with riot police. Hundreds of youths attacked police following large and peaceful marches to mark the anniversary of the 1973 crackdown on a student uprising against the military dictatorship then ruling Greece.

In The City By The Sea by Kamila Shamsie.
.
I read this book ONLY because I had to. I had put it on the summer reading list thinking no student will pick it for their reading assignment. Ofc. when it was selected I had to read it for marking purposes. I neither disliked it nor liked it and I still don't know how it made me feel. This is just one of those books!
.
Set in Pakistan, the book is centered around an 11 year old Hasan who is the protagonist and leads the reader into the innocent questioning of society, politics and sometimes religion of the world he is experiencing. There are two parallel stories being told which have no correlation. The first is of Hasan witnessing a boy who dies from a rooftop whilst flying a kite; and the second is of his Uncle Salman, who is an influential politician under house arrest.
.
The book is not really a plot driven novel and by the end of the book you are not sure what is going on. But, the book does have an indepth account of the characters. It does manage to showcase how people react in different situations, thus making it an interesting pick for a character-study assignment.
.
Overall, the book isn't the most stylish or well written book you'll ever come across. Read it if you're a die hard Shamsie fan. 2/5*****

"If the government failed to inculcate new political values in Chilean youth, it was far more successful in transforming their professional and economic aspirations. The creation of consumer oriented culture, permitted by Chile's entry into international markets and promoted by the boom in modern advertising, exposed young people to a wealth of new status symbols, for motorbikes to designer jeans… At the same time, prolonged economic crisis kept these tantalizing new possibilities beyond the reach of all but a few, and left the rest deeply anxious about the future… Driven both by ambition and by fear failure, students were easily lured into engineering or business classes, instead of wasting time reading poetry or philosophy…'these students see me more as a provider of a service that as a teacher. They are consumers of education,' said Cortés, whose university was founded by a group of businessmen with the goal of forming a new technocratic elite. 'There is no intellectual relationship between us; they don't like risks and they don't want problems. If they have any rebelliousness at all, it is channeled into consumerism.'"
🇨🇱 Over 20 years old, but still a valuable insight into the years of Pinochet and the Chicago school's economic pummeling of Chile. While I would have liked there to be more information on the privatization of public education, this book gives much insight into a process that is not dissimilar to trump's vision of the United States. It also gives hope to a sense that totalitarianism cannot break the human spirit. (More in commenta)

1970s Brazil was a dichotomy: a soccer superpower and "Country of the Future" run by a military dictatorship that severely repressed artists, intellectuals, and progressive activists. Under the thumb of extreme censorship, artists created some of Brazil’s most compelling musical/social/political movements and produced an incredible body of work before the digital age of mass consumption. The musicians of the Samba Society collective (which includes @banda_moforro and @oszagueiros) along with some very special guests, will defy genre boundaries and be in dialogue with current affairs and political movements. Don't miss "Brasil 70: Samba Soul Resistance" on August 4th at @fordtheatres. Buy tickets now! 📸 Evandro Teixeira (1968)

Maybe it takes 50 years of a #militarydictatorship before #freedomofthepress is celebrated by green man statue of famous journalist and a news and media museum.

This tree was carved by a political prisoner (Oscar Valdés) while he was kept in this prisoners camp during military dictatorship.

Former military dictator of Panama, Manuel Noriega has died. He was ousted by a U.S. invasion known as Operation Just Cause. Rest in Peace. Thoughts?

Beyond Rangoon

We are in war. We are the heirs of a besieged country. We are at war, therefore, the peace, at this moment, is only an invention that goes against life. The peace is a smoke that is confused with the bombs. For us there is no other option. For the great generals and for those who live and dance on the blood of those who have fallen in Venezuela, there can be no compassion. The feeling of guilt should not be ours. The president and the hierarchs have to be judged with all the weight, with all the horror they have stored in our choir of the psyche. The courage and the strength for the collapsingwarlords are in our veins. Although sometimes we do not learn. Our history from Bolívar to Maduro has been marked bywarlords. We are in war. There are no gods, we are only ourselves. It is time for the world to hear the drums they have built with our fragments, with the brains from which they have been killed, with the tendons from which they have gone. It is the hour to pounce without any compassion of our intellectual and cultural prisons, to loosen the locks, to do from whatever circumstance it may be.

Un humo que se confunde con las bombas. Para nosotros no hay otra opción. Para los grandes generales y para los que viven y bailan sobre la sangre de quienes han caído en Venezuela, no puede haber compasión. El sentimiento de culpa no debe ser lo nuestro. El presidente y sus lagartos deben ser juzgados con todo el peso, con todo el horror que han almacenado en nuestra psique. El coraje y la fuerza para derrumbar caudillos sí está en nuestras venas. Aunque a veces no aprendamos. Nuestra historia desde Bolívar hasta Maduro ha estado signada de caudillos. Estamos en guerra. No hay dioses, sólo estamos nosotros mismos. Es la hora de que el mundo escuche los tambores que hemos construido con nuestros fragm

Gaza's ruling Hamas movement executed three Palestinians on Thursday convicted of collaborating with Israel, hanging the men during a campaign to persuade any Israeli-recruited agents to come forward in return for more lenient punishment. Hamas leaders and officials, along with the heads of Gaza clans and local security chiefs, watched the execution in the courtyard of the enclave's main police headquarters.
The Hamas-run Interior Ministry said the men, aged 32, 42 and 55, were convicted of treason and spying for hostile foreign parties and had provided information that helped Israel track and kill Palestinians, including leaders of militant factions.

#FakePOTUS wouldn't shake the hand of the Leader of the Free World, but he's giddy like a schoolgirl at the chance to shake hands with a military dictator who suppresses free speech and jails political opponents (including Americans!), even going so far as to slather on a fat helping of praise saying "He's done a fantastic job."

President Trump has abandoned the goal of pressing President Bashar al-Assad of Syria to leave power, marking a sharp departure from the Middle East policy that guided the Obama administration for more than five years, the White House said on Friday. With respect to Assad, there is a political reality that we have to accept,” said Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary. The United States has profound priorities in Syria and Iraq, and we’ve made it clear that counterterrorism, particularly the defeat of ISIS, is foremost among those priorities,” he added, using the acronym for the Islamic State.

A bit of Philippine-connection in Mizuki's Showa. One of the up close footage of the Aquino assassination was taken by a Japanese journalist, not sure if it was Ninoy's brother in law Ken Kashiwahara. Chances are, Japanese audiences saw that clip more than Filipinos. Mizuki treats the situation in the Phil back then in symbolic terms, but Japan, along with most Western powers were complicit with the Marcos regime. Until things got sour in the late 80s when Marcos became more of a liability. #igreads #bookstagram #shigerumizuki #showa #showaahistoryofjapan #ninoyaquino #ferdinandmarcos #martiallaw #militarydictatorship #coldwar #kenkashiwahara

First pic I took yesterday on the street on Victoria Island; Second one is someone else's (kinda cheating here) and is blowing up Twitter: a street artist named Sunshine Studios painted Trump as Sani Abacha, the mid-90s military #dictator of #Nigeria, infamous for looting the country of at least £5 Billion. If I had the proper place to hang it, and could have fit it in my luggage, it'd have a new home now! 😂😂🇳🇬 #streetart #politicalsatire #portrait #art #militarydictatorship #Lagos
