Sorria, você está na Bahia!

Yes! Smile, you're in Bahia! A message of welcome to tourists in general and it wouldn't be different to the thousands of participants who were in Salvador for the 13th World Social Forum. People who have come from all corners of the planet to think together a more sustainable, fairer and happier world. Is it possible? We can not stop trying. It was a real privilege to have participated in this experience, of course I could not take part in all the hundreds of activities that happened simultaneously in the Federal University of Bahia and in several points of Salvador. However there are a few sites and photos of some moments of this great world meeting I would like to share with you, starting with a few pics of the first-day march that culminated at Praça Castro Alves.







It was impressive to see the university opened to all communities to discuss education, environment issues, health, security, agroecology, human rights, equality, non violence, prejudice, racism, etc










 Carolina de Jesus, Brazilian writer, was remembered through the installation "The Trash Room" about her most famous book, about poverty and the hard life in the favelas (slums) of Brazil.  






On March the 14th, we were both shocked and revolted with the killing of the activist and council woman Marielle Franco. Many activities in the forum were dedicated to protest against this act of outrageous violence against women, human rights and dignity which reverberated around the world, even Pope Francisco phoned her mother to express his sadness and condolences.

Besides to march in protest, this tribute was made in her memory and will be exhibited in Rio de Janeiro.

  1. Now this show is not without problems. I'll be the first to admit it. losmovies It's very basic premise and sometimes convenient plot turns are not lost on me. Two monster hunting brothers travel cross country and extinguish a different monster each week. Not too much on the original side, I know. However, I can't help but watch this show every week with a fondness for my old junior high days. For those who don't know I was a huge sci-if/horror geek in my younger years and I loved reading about "The Crazy Hook Man who kills Teenagers" or "The Ghost of the Lady in White". 123movies I ate those stories up, and apparently so did the show's creator. This show takes me back to the years before I learned what character arcs, and plot contrivances were. It strips that all away and just lets me enjoy what it was like to hear ghost stories. What it was like to get chills down my spine every time I rode down a dark road at night expecting an apparition in white to appear.
