Has the backlash begun?

To those who can hear me, I say “do not despair
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed
The bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die
And the power they took from the people will return to the people
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men”

Paulo Nutini. Iron Sky

no-titleThere’s a little tortilleria in the neighborhood, as there are in many neighborhoods, but the one in Colonia Allende has a corkboard that until now has only had two pieces of paper on it, both with prices of the various goods they sell, but there’s a new addition, new within the past few weeks. It’s a photocopy and it suggests that people not buy Pepsi, Coke, products from Walmart or other companies linked to – America. In short, don’t buy American. It’s only one tortilla shop, in one neighborhood, in one small Mexican city. But it’s a photocopy, and it’s not a first generation photocopy.

From the movie Freedom Writers
