Some officials have speculated that the use of the “kitchen” extermination method hasincreased steadily since 2010, when 72 migrants, mostly Central and South Americans, were found shot to death and abandoned in a shed in San Fernando, Tamaulipas. The remains of dozens of others were discovered while excavating other secret burial sites. The San Fernando massacre put this region under international scrutiny and criminal organizations began increasing their use of diesel-filled drums to leave less evidence of killings, and avoid any resulting scandals.

'So, if you were to say to me “There are 50,000 official deaths,” I would believe that we are actually talking about, easily, a quarter of a million murders.'

Why aren’t more people freaking out about the new Venezuelan labor law?

You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?

It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
