watched 7 episodes of a new anime in a row rather than sleep
Hello my fellow followers, just making a break to inform you something that happened the week ago in my country, something that costed the life of 43 people in the mexican State of Guerrero. Just want you to inform you how the autorities which claim to protect us are the ones who kill us with all the possible impunity.
Three days ago, a clandestine grave was found, 28 bodies were found after the news that 43 students were missing from the Normal School of Ayontzinapa in the Municipality of Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico after the Municipal Police kindapped them without knowing their final destination. It is more than a fact that the 43 students died in iguala, and the government is barely beginning to react. The main story of the facts begun when they were protesting and the Municipal Police kidnapped them, torture them and killed them following orders of the Municipal President, all of this just as a response to the intentions of the protestors to claim their rights on his wife´s inform; and how ironic is that she is the director of the Integral Family Devolpment (DIF in spanish) which is the institution in charge to protect the family and unprotected population in Mexico, and how sad is that he is still free, with all the impunity of what he ordered. There is an annecdote which tells that the Municipal President of Iguala personally killed with a shotgun one student. ¿What does this country have done to pay 100 years of repression, corruption and social inequality? That´s what we ask as a country everyday ¿What we did wrong…?
I live in a country where the drugtrafficking cartels have overtaken the government institutions and politicians, I live in a country where the Human Rights Institute protect the criminals and attack our soldiers, I live in a country where democracy, gender equality, same-sex marriage and human rights are just a dream for more than 50% of the population, I live in a country where a Municipal President can kill 43 Students, escape and disappear and nothing happens, this is the reality where we live in, this is the reality of the richest Latin American country.
If you want a more expanded optic to what happened in Iguala, Guerrero here is a report from DailyMail: [X]
EDIT: Picture added (sorry I forgot to).

Fundraiser far exceeded expectations, but raised security questions.
Kickstarter removed a fundraiser for a popular Tor-based router project on Friday afternoon.
The Anonabox, which was created by August Germar, of Chico, California, aimed to be an “open source embedded networking device designed specifically to run Tor.” Its fundraising goal was $7,500, and in five days, it raised $585,549 from nearly 9,000 backers—including three Ars editors.
Germar told Ars that he was not aware that it had been suspended until Ars forwarded him an e-mail from Kickstarter outlining the possible reasons why it could have been cancelled.
In recent days, many Kickstarter commenters pointed outnotable flaws in the project, including the fact that Germar claimed to have made the hardware on his own—other commenters found links on other sites that show nearly-identical devices.
"I don’t know what to say other than I never expected any of this, I was expecting to make a batch of 100 and that’s it," he told Ars in an instant message chat. "The hardware that is being linked to did not exist when I started working on this, otherwise I would have done a Kickstarter four years ago. I think those are just generic knockoffs, they were being made in China. I don’t mind, I’m glad the hardware is available now. I always told people they could build their own at home and that I would help them. Now they can buy the hardware directly from China, it doesn’t bother me. I just wanted more people to be able to have a device like this." …
