Both the previous threats and those she received recently will not stop the courageous and honest work she has been doing.

On July 2, 2018, the feminist activist and journalist FridaGuerrera Villalvazo began to receive more hate messages in which she was harassed and threatened with death due to her journalistic work (documenting and opposing Femicides) .

Since 2016, Frida Guerrera has dedicated her time to documenting cases of feminicide, throughout the country, and has accompanied the families of the victims, not only telling their stories and giving them a voice, but also supporting them with legal advice by an office of lawyers.

The work of FridaGuerrera has been recognized both nationally and internationally, not only for the professionalism and sensitivity with which it addresses each case of feminicide.., but also for the serious situation that exists in Mexico regarding the issue of violence against women.  Proof of this is that the number of femicides registered in the country since January 1, 2016 to July 2, 2018 has been 5, 347 cases.

Emma Goldman … ‘What I Believe’ … read and download

“What I believe” has many times been the target of hack writers. Such blood-curdling and incoherent stories have been circulated about me, it is no wonder that the average human being has palpitation of the heart at the very mention of the name Emma Goldman.

It is too bad that we no longer live in the times when witches were burned at the stake or tortured to drive the evil spirit out of them. For, indeed, Emma Goldman is a witch! True, she does not eat little children, but she does many worse things. She manufactures bombs and gambles in crowned heads. B-r-r-r!


Such is the impression the public has of myself and my beliefs. It is therefore very much to the credit of The World that it gives its readers at least an opportunity to learn what my beliefs really are.The student of the history of progressive thought is well aware that every idea in its early stages has been misrepresented, and the adherents of such ideas have been maligned and persecuted. One need not go back two thousand years to the time when those who believed in the gospel of Jesus were thrown into the arena or hunted into dungeons to realize how little great beliefs or earnest believers are understood.

The history of progress is written in the blood of men and women who have dared to espouse an unpopular cause, as, for instance, the black man’s right to his body, or woman’s right to her soul. If, then, from time immemorial, the New has met with opposition and condemnation, why should my beliefs be exempt from a crown of thorns?

The San Fermin rape became the focus of a campaign against sexual abuse atthe Fiesta, highlighting many other similar cases, and condemning the impunity showed by the corrupt political justice system, as well as the links between machismo, bull torture, catholic nationalism and rape in the ‘culture’ of the Spanish right.
The sentencing of the rapists came just weeks after the first ever women’s General Strike on March 8th with an unprecedented awakening to the abuse , denigration and discrimination against women.
A heavy sentence was expected but the judges ruled there was no proof of rape, that the girl didn’t protest loud enough, and reduced the charge to ‘abuse’. For this they got 9 years each.. but  with endless appeals and certain clemency they will likely never go to jail, like the hundreds of corrupt poiliticians charged but enjoying immunity..

Demonstrations called on social media have multiplied already across Spain to express the rejection of the decision of the court
(Ara report by ENRIC BORRÀS / MARIONA FERRER)  Thousands of people – most of them women – have quickly concentrated in the Plaça Sant Jaume de Barcelona. Continue reading 1000’s of Women Protest as Gang Rape 5 get Light Sentences and Victim Blamed
