[Two smiling people at a table. One is saying “I’m so happy we live in a world without slavery and imperialism.” There are boxes pointing to various objects around and on the people. They read:
COTTON: Picked in Uzbekistan where 2 million children as young as 7 are forced to pick cotton for 3p a kilo.
APPLES: Picked in California by Mexican migrant workers, not being paid minimum wage nor provided housing.
LAPTOP: Made in China by adults working 18 hours a day at 32p an hour. The laptop will end up back in China’s landfills, where children will dismantle it for its valuable metals including lead.
MOBILE PHONE: Gold, tantalum, tin, and tungsten mined in Congo in abysmal working conditions, causing disease and the regional conflict responsible for the deaths of over 5 million people and systematic rape of women.
ORANGE JUICE: Picked in Chile by women working 60 hours a week, below minimum wage.
FACE: Detoxed with Dead Sea salts sourced in occupied West Bank; land stolen by Israel from Palestinians, who are subject to continual and severe human rights violations.
COFFEE: Picked in Guatemala where entire families with children as young as 6 are forced to pick a 100-pound quota in order to get the minimum wage of less than £2/day
SHIRT: Sewn in India under forced labour conditions by people earning less than 25p an hour, for 16 hours a day, while being unable to send their children to school.
DIAMOND: Mined in Sierra Leone by children as young as 7, working in dangerous conditions for 10p an hour, six days a week.]
this needs a million notes
Happy Birthday to the WOMYN in my life - la luz de mis ojos, mi mama @flavita507! Te amo! 💗 (Taken with instagram)
I donated this morning and was astonished that donations have been flowing all day. So far they were able to raise over 44k in less then 24 hours! That’s amazing support… Spread the word. So tragic. My prayers go out to a fellow Greek and his family! Cherish each day.
If you ever lost a family please donate. This young man has lost 7members of his family and his fraternity is raising money for funeral cost.

NEW YORK – An out-of-control SUV careered across several lanes of traffic on a New York parkway Sunday afternoon, then plunged more than 50 feet and landed in a ravine on the grounds of the Bronx Zoo, killing all seven family members aboard, authorities said.
The SUV apparently flipped over a 4-foot-high iron fence before landing upside-down on the Bronx Zoo property. The cause of the crash was unclear, and police said they didn’t yet know how fast the SUV was traveling.
“Obviously, the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed,” FDNY deputy Chief Ronald Werner said. “It hit something that caused it to become airborne.”
” I’ve been in the fire department 30 years,” Werner said. “Sometimes you come upon events that are horrific and this is one of them.”
Police identified the dead adults as Jacob Nunez, 85, and Ana Julia Martinez, 81, both from the Dominican Republic, and their daughters, Maria Gonzalez, 45, and Maria Nunez, 39, and three grandchildren. Police say Gonzalez was driving.
The children were identified as Jocelyn Gonzalez, 10, the daughter of the driver, Niely Rosario, 7, and Marly Rosario, 3, both daughters of Nunez.
“I’m very sad,” said family friend Jose Perez, 39, who lives near Gonzalez in the Bronx and was at Jacobi Medical Center, where the bodies were taken. “It’s a good family.”
Maria Gonzalez, a custodial worker at Fordham University, had picked up the others and was heading to her home on Taylor Avenue in the Bronx, he said.
The sisters’ parents, about 84 and 80 years old, arrived three days ago from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, he said. They were all headed to a celebration at Gonzalez’s home.
Gonzalez’s husband, Juan, called a neighborhood bodega with news of the tragedy and word quickly spread. Hours later, dozens of family members descended on the home to console one another and grieve the loss.
“She was a good mother … a very good mother,” Juan Gonzalez said in Spanish as he cried and a police chaplain held his shoulder.
The vehicle landed nearly upside down on zoo property that’s closed to the public and far from any animal exhibits, said zoo spokeswoman Mary Dixon. The vehicle lay mangled hours later, its right doors ripped off and strewn amid the trees along with items from the car.
