Non è facile trovare testimonianze dell'antichissima civiltà cinese sempre più rare ma ancora non perse del tutto. È stato difficile ma ho cercato di scoprire e conoscere l'essenza e la diversità di questa affascinante cultura.

Antofagasta, Chile, Noviembre 2019. The rage, the injustice and the social inequality made a society immersed for decades in a poorly made history in a badly told history explode. Adolescents,adults, men and women from Chile decided they wanted to write their own history for their country. In this social breakdown arises the duty of those who almost instinctivley , come out to the streets day after day to leave graphical and historical récords of this struggle.

ITALY. Approximately 1400 kilometres covered, 65 days of travel, 8 regions crossed, 56 stages completed and a wheelchair. I could summarize this wonderful experience of "Rotellando verso sud" ("Rotating towards the south").
There are stories that need to be told. Stories of courage and optimism. Stories of example for all. Supported by an unshakable faith in one's own individual resources, an uncommon willpower and a desire for independence that is also a challenge. This is the story of Bruno Rupp, "Paolo" for all, a seventy-year-old sprightly man who, a few years ago, suffered amputation of his lower limbs due to diabetes. In the torrid summer of 2019, together with his friend Mauro, he faced an incredible challenge: a journey of 1400 km on his electric wheelchair through Italy, from North to South, from the foggy Brianza to far Sicily. An absurd journey, all by road, without the aid of public transport or means of transport, without planning anything at all.
Everything was born by chance, during a dinner with friends. Paolo said: "I can get to Sicily with this electric wheelchair!". That simple joke between friends gave rise to the incredible journey through Italy of "Rotellando verso Sud".
"In the common thought is widespread the idea that a disabled person must necessarily be forced to depend on others, to live with constant limits and regrets, but in reality, at least for what concerns me, I think that this is only a big bullshit!" Paolo Rupp.
Hunger comes from the lack of food that affects a large number of people in Brazil and around the world. Despite major economic, social, and technological advances, the lack of food for thousands of people in Brazil continues. This process is a result of income inequality, the lack of money causes about 32 million people to starve, plus 65 million people who do not eat the minimum amount of calories daily, that is, eat poorly.
Extremely high number, given the territorial extension of the country that has great agricultural potential. But this is irrelevant since there is a concentration of land and income. Much of the country's money is in the hands of only 10% of the Brazilian population.
It is hard to understand a country where records of agricultural production are changing steadily over the years, while hunger is part of an alarming number of people. The monoculture aims to export, because a large part of the production is destined to animal nutrition in developed countries.
Even with federal and state social programs the problem of hunger is not solved, the worst is that it is present in small, medium and large cities and also in the countryside, regardless of the region or state of Brazil.
The solution to the question seems distant, involves a series of structural factors that are impregnated in Brazilian society. Providing basic food baskets does not solve the problem, it only postpones it, it must provide conditions for citizens to be able to support themselves through decent work and remuneration.

Friday 31 May 2019 chaos erupted in Alexandra township after the Red Ants demolished illegal structures in the area. Demolition of houses has become a political football, with the African National Congress-led provincial government blaming the Democratic Alliance-led City of Joburg administration for carrying out the demolitions.
The demolitions spike fire forcing incensed residents of Alexandra township to march to Sandton, demanding to see Mayor of Johannesburg Herman Mashaba. After Mashaba didn’t appear, residents instead went to the police to open a case against him.
Prior to the march disgruntled residents of Alexandra, citing service delivery issues, took to the streets of the township blocked roads leading into the area with rubble, burning tyres and rocks as they led the #AlexShutDown demonstrations. These protests have started before national general elections where residents were calling for the Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba to address them with regards to service delivery issues. The first protest spike a fight between the ANC and DA leadership in Gauteng where both parties exchanged words on social media and in public.
President Cyril Ramaphosa visited Alexandra during the ANC elections campaign and he gave an ultimatum to Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba to respond to the demands of the people of Alexandra in the next few days, saying he does not want to hear excuses.
Speaking to hundreds of people gathered in the township, Ramaphosa commended the organisers of the #AlexTotalShutdown for raising issues facing the community. He also said he was not happy with the dirt and sewage he saw all over the streets in Alex.
Mayor Herman Mashaba had promise to lead an engagement with the people of Alex on April 15. The mayor had hoped that the meeting would allow him and the community to engage on budgets and service delivery. The mayor made his much anticipated visit on the 31 May 2019. Just less than an hour before the beginning of a meeting between him and community, Marlboro community hall was already packed to the rafters. With banners written "we've been waiting since September 2018", the residents sang struggle songs insulating the mayor. Some residents, however, refused to let the official proceedings to begin. Even city speaker Vasco da Gama's plea with the group of Alex residents fell on deaf ears. The meeting did not produce any good fruits.
Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba on Monday revisited the area where he apologised to destitute and homeless Alexandra residents whose houses were demolished, and then promised that the City of Joburg will immediately rebuild their houses. Human Rights Commission of Inquiry into Alexandra was launched and the probe was set up following a spate of protests in the troubled township. The inquiry is investigating possible human right violation among other things. Gauteng Human Settlements MEC Lebogang Maile was one of the people who was called to testify before the commission.
The commission has wrapped up its public hearings with testimony from the auditor general's office. The panel heard how leaders of the Alex Renewal Project compromised the success of the project. It also heard that the Gauteng Human Settlements Department failed to provide necessary documents including the approved business plan. Inquiry chairperson Buang Jones said after the conclusion of the public hearings they will now invite implicated individuals to a closed-door session.

On the eve of Eid, people in Bangladesh return to their home from Dhaka City. But the number of these people is so large that the trains cannot accommodate them all within the compartments. As such, they have to risk their lives to get back to home. They travel by the train on the roof!
