Ayotzinapa (English) by CandyDeChocolate
Ayotzinapa (English)
Usually this is not my art style, but I thought it was necessary for me to do this and make awareness about what is going on in Mexico. I encouraged you all to learn about the 43 students missing in Mexico. Here is the link to the information:
www.latintimes.com/10-things-u…

43 students were disappeared in Ayotzinapa, a city in Mexico. Who did this? There are various rumors, but everything points that this massacre was a masterpiece by the Mexican government. 
The students were protesting against one of the many corruptions that the Mexican government has committed. Because they raised their voices, they were killed. As students, we have to show support for this horrible injustice. This not the first time that this occurs in Mexico. In October 2, 1960s, hundreds of students were killed. Who was blamed? No one, but everyone knew it was the government.
There are not only 43 students that had been silenced. Everyday every Mexican has been silenced by the government, the media, and drug cartels.
Thousands of people have been making movements to not only call for awareness, but also to call for justice and the renunciation of presidential position of Mexican president, Enrique Peña Nieto.

I thought about making one in Spanish and another one in English just to be mindful that this is not only our fight, but it is also Mexico's, a country where most people speak Spanish. I also thought about writing "What if you were #44" and "Your Name Here" to make awareness that this is not something that is just happening to Mexico and should be ignored because "After all, it did not happened in US/to me/to my family...," as humanity, this is everyone's problem because it is a violation of human rights. Also, the objects with the writing on top are mostly to symbolize that not only the students have been disappeared... or killed... the government has little by little made a "montonsito" of killing people's freedom of speech (speaker, banner), of listening to new ideas (speaker), of freedom (shoe), education (books, cap), of thought (cap)... and so on and on... I wanted to show that the problem has been accumulating since long time ago.

Ayotzinapa by CandyDeChocolate
Ayotzinapa
Este no es el tipo de arte usual que ago. Aun asi, creo que lo que sucede en Mexico deve de saberse. Invito a todos los que no sepan hacerca de lo que esta sucediendo en Ayotzinapa Mexico que porfavor, busque y lea hacerca de lo que pasa.
Pense en hacer un poster en Español porque despues de todo, la lucha es mayormente en Mexico, un pais de habla en español. Quise escribir "Que si tu fueras #44" y "Tu nombre Aqui" para que la gente sintiera que este problema tiene tambien que ver con ellos; es una violacion a los derechos humanos, y como humanos, tenemos que alsar nuestras vocez. Tambien, los objetos con la escritura representan no solo los estudiantes que han desaparesido, pero tambien de que poco a poquito, se a hecho el montonsito de matansa: mataron la libertad de exprecion (pancartas y bozina), libertad de escuchar nuevas ideas (bosina), libertad (zapato), educaion (libros, gorro), libertad de pensar (gorro)... etc. Un sin fin de cosas y formas en las que poco a poco nos estan matando. Queria demostrar que este problema se a estado acumulando desde hase mucho. Espero que les guste y son libres de duplicarlo o utilizarlo para protestas, promociones, etc.

El indio by CandyDeChocolate
El indio
El Indio, al que le llamaron Indio por no ser reconocido como parte de las Américas.
El indígena, sufriendo la opresión de una jerarquía creada por aquellos que nos colonizaron.
El mestizo, el que es una combinación de identidades, de culturas, y de historias.
El Xicano, el que no es ni de aqui, ni de aya.
Todos sufriendo por la obsesión de su vecino de querer ser el número uno...
Nuestro vecino es la cruz de los Latinos...

Indio, that one that was call Indio because of not being recognized as part of América
   Because United States is not America. We are all América.
The indigenous, suffering from the oppression of a hierarchy structure created by those who colonized us.
The mestizo, that one who is the miz of identities, cultures, and stories.
The Xicano, the one that is not from here nor from there.
Everyone suffering from the obsession that their neighbor has for being number one.
Our neighbor is the cross of us Latinos...

El Cerro del Petacal by CandyDeChocolate
El Cerro del Petacal
I'm so proud of this drawing! 1st time drawing with paint and 1st time drawing a landscape. 
This beautiful place is "El Cerro del Petacal" (The Petacal's Hill). This is the view that I would see every morning. Those fields are the ones where I used to work when living in Mexico. Working in here from sun up to sun down. Yeah, it was a hard job and we were pay very little. Working under the sun, not having water, blisters, cuts, feeling hungry because nearby animals ate my food... But they were the best days of my life! I wouldn't change my childhood for anything in the world! The earthy smell of the fields, the sound of the birds, the sunlight in my face, I miss all of them (sometimes I even miss the smell if the cows next to our territory xD) damn, if it wasn't for society, for our government, for the economy, for the search of a better place, for a better future, for the promise of the "American Dream"... I would have stayed in Mexico. 
But at some point of my life I have also become a foreigner in my own country. A country that began to see me as an stranger. And I know I will never go back.
Life of an immigrant. I'm not from here nor from there.

As time passes by, I have realized how meaningful this place is for me. In here, I did not only worked in agriculture, I was also part of the tequila industry. Though it is a dangerous drink, it is part of a culture and Jalisco's pride. In here, I got to interact with very poor communities who, despite not having gone to school, they were very wise. I got to witness injustices, seeing American farm companies establishing there, employing many indigenous people who could not even speak Spanish and would be exploited by their managers making them over work, forcing them to live under terrible circumstances, and pay them less than $10 dollars per week! I got and continue seeing Monsanto poisoning our seeds and affecting our farmers, making the rich richer and the poor poorer. Nutrillite appropriating territories and workers in El Petacal in order to sell "quality" products for cheaper prices.The misery that people would have to go through is the reason why they migrated to "El Norte." This place means generations of hard work and kids without parents because they would migrate to US in order to.give their children a better life and get them out of the fate each generation has gone through: working in agriculture, a job that though it is so important is not valued. And yet, no one would do anything. For Me, El Cerro del Petacal does not only means good memories or a pair of rough working hands, but it is the reason why I wanted to achieve higher education, my passion for helping others, my inspiration to achieve my goals, and the reason for who I am. 
Si pudiera, volaria hacía allá para poder sentir la tierra en mis manos, oír a los pájaros cantar, oler la tierra mojada después de una lluvia y me doy cuenta de lo fuerte que abrazo a el recuerdo y lo difícil que es encontrar otro lugar así.
