I hope that many of my fellow teachers are considering the use of this information in many months other than just February. There is something very limiting about the message we send to all of our students if/when we only talk about the African-American heroes of our past and present during one set of 28 days!

Revolution Quilombolivariana 1

Viva Zumbi! Viva Che! Viva Hugo Chavez! Happy 2010!
Awareness! Justice! Prosperity! Solidarity!
Fraternity! Love! Peace! Quilombolivariano socialism!
To Our People! Viva Brazil! Venceremos Happy 2010!

Manifesto of solidarity, freedom and development of Amerindian peoples african-Latinos, on May 1 Labour Day was released the manifesto of the Revolution Quilombolivariana result of numerous discussions that questioned the status of blacks, Indians in Latin America, which despite being in 3rd millennium in full technological advancement, our collective is the margin and marginalized of all all the benefits of capitalist society Euro-American, who in spite of that group of countries the pyramid from the top of society and world that dictate what and right and wrong, determining the lines of behavior of people commanding the U.S. imperialism, which decides who is good and who evil, who is allied and who is foe, and these guidelines colonization of the 3rd World, Asia , Africa and Latin America in our case, taking as our example Brazil, which alias is a force of expression, for whom the dominant elite is associated with the global elite, which is known in Brazil that today we have over 30 billionaires , and the fortunes of these some of these were formed as if by magic in less than thirty years, and even cases in less than 10 years, and some of these fortunes come from the days of slavery, and other people fleeing the Nazis that came here with nothing and now own this country, occupying strategic positions in civil society and public policy, taking on all channels of communication one of the most perverse media in the world. The exclusion of blacks and the usurpation of indigenous lands were created more than 100 million Brazilians and this african-Amerindian descent living in a level of slavery, living on unemployment and underemployment, with a minimum wages of the worst in the world, and millions living below the poverty line, the greatest victims of social violence, the scraping of public health and bad education system, where millions of students have difficulty reading or a simple sum, giving demagogic arguments supporting the various politicians that the problem of Brazil and education, while in reality the problem of Brazil are the bad conditions of life of tens of millions of excluded and alienated by the capitalist system that makes the oligarchic elite of Brazil as powerful as the 1st World. It is unacceptable to the salary of teachers, health assistants, even the police and workers in general, we see the surrealism of salaries paid by dozens of television systems Globo, SBT and others to their artists, journalists, presenters and directors and so on.Revolutionary Socialist Movement (Either one, one) QUILOMBOLIVARIANO /

Revolution Quilombolivariana 2

Viva Zumbi! Viva Che! Viva Hugo Chavez! Happy 2010!

Manifesto of the Revolution Quilombolivariana comes to mind our duty and wishes to black movements african-American Indians and supporters for making great awareness that this country and the sister nations can no longer live in hell, contending the paradise of the ruling elite that is manifest Quilombolivariano the unification and redemption of the ideals of the great leader Zumbi of Palmares to 1st Republic made by blacks and Indians alike, feeling that the great man's liberator and construídor Simon Bolivar in his fight for freedom and justice in the Americas became a martyr alive inside these ideals and principles we fight for our rights and rescue stories of our martyred heroes like Che Guevara, leader of the Giant Oswaldão Araguaia Guerrilla. There are dozens of stories that Imperialism and Dictatorship hid. For over 160 years there was the massacre of black spearmen Porongos the Ragamuffin what happened to the women of the square of May 1? What happened to many of our indigenous peoples in Latin America, what happened to so many men and women who were martyred, because they wanted freedom and justice? There are a lot of hidden barriers and other avowedly we exclude general knowledge of the Brazilian Negro unfortunately does not know the cultural richness of a social brother Colombia, Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivian, Peruvian, Venezuelan, Argentinean, Puerto Rican or Cuban. There is a physical and spiritual presence in our history the same as us about our values are the same as attacking the statesmen Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales Ayma, do not admit that these leaders of native origin and african descent and take seek autonomy for their equal, these are the same as discriminating against and oppressing us of our freedom of our expressions that are not secular, but millennia. In this May 1st in various capitals and cities and hundreds of thousands of mostly young african-Amerindian descent and sympathetic read the manifesto Revolution
Quilombolivariana and shouted Vivas! Simon Bolivar Viva! Zombie! Tupac Amaru! Benkos Biojo! Sepe Tiaraju Alicutan! Sabino! Elesbão! Cosme Bento! José Leonardo Chirinos! Antonio Ruiz, El Falucho!

Fernando Lugo! José Mujica (El Pepe)! Viva! The Union of Peoples Latinos african-Amerindian,! May 1, Viva! Workers in Brazil and all peoples are united.
