Read, Think, Inform, ACT: the Transformation of the Written Word!

Though this began as an Ayotzinapa compilation of news, because my friend and colleague Vanessa Vaile knows I am infinitely interested in everything Ayotzinapa ⎼⎼ and she was gathering articles for me doing what she always does (she is an information activist, or better said, an informationist and thinktivist too) ⎼⎼ it turned out to be a lot more than Ayotzinapa articles by the end of this set, one of the endless many, she says. 

I don't know where she finds the time. 

This set is a bit of an eclectic mix of articles to interest Human Rights activists of all sorts: the humanitarian, the person who wants to learn more about the plight of the refugee not only in the USA but the world over, the undocumented and how they are faring in this land, the DACA students without their dreams, since Texas conservatives are hellbent on taking them away... And of course, the followers of #FueElEstado, as many of us are.
Something for every taste. 

So peruse and wander about. I am sure you will find something to your liking. And read. Become informed. And raise your voices. 
This is the only way we will get justice someday.
