The Republic of Cape Verde is an island country, spanning an archipelago of 10 volcanic islands located in the central Atlantic Ocean, 570 kilometres off the coast of Western Africa. The islands, covering a combined area of slightly over 4,000 square kilometres. Because of the infrequent occurrence of rainfall the overall landscape is not particularly green, despite what the country’s name suggests (“verde” means “green” in Portuguese).
The previously uninhabited islands were discovered and colonized by the Portuguese in the 15th Century, and became an important location in the Atlantic slave trade due to their geographically advantageous position. The islands’ prosperity often attracted pirates including Sir Francis Drake, who twice sacked the (then) capital Ribeira Grande, in the 1580s. The islands were also visited by Charles Darwin’s expedition in 1832. The decline in the slave trade in the 19th century resulted in an economic crisis. With few natural resources and without strong sustainable investment from the Portuguese, the people grew increasingly discontent with the colonial masters, who nevertheless refused to provide the local authorities with more autonomy. This discontent festered and culminated in 1975, when a movement led by Amílcar Cabral achieved independence for the archipelago.
Cape Verde has a rich cultural heritage influenced by continents like Africa, South America and Europe. This heritage is reflected in the country’s literature, poetry, cuisine, its dance and its famous national song, the Morna, represented worldwide by the famous Cesária Évora. (x)
I’m sorry that you had to see this pictures, but have you ever heard about the Surabaya Zoo? It’s the biggest zoo in Indonesia and it is, basically, a place for animals to die in the most horrible ways. They don’t have vets, they hardly ever clean the place, staff sells animal’s food, some of them are in really small cages…
You see the giraffe on the picture? It ate 20kg of plastic bags cause it was starving and all there was to eat was garbage. About 25 animals die per month.
The government doesn’t care about the zoo and ONGs have problems to release the animals cause most of them are not in healthy conditions to just go back to their true homes.
SIGN THE PETITION TO SHUT DOWN SURABAYA ZOO! Help to make a change. Reblog it. Post it on all your social medias. Invite your friends to join. Tell everyone you know about it.

Im sorry but I had to reblog this 😨
Wells Fargo forecloses on Florida man for paying his mortgage early (by RTAmerica)
Published on May 30, 2013
Etienne Syldor of Orlando, Florida was never late with paying his mortgage and even sent his bank more money than he owed every month. That’s why he’s outraged that Wells Fargo has informed him that they’re foreclosing on his home. Syldor, a Haitian immigrant who works as a bus driver at Disney World to make pay his mortgage every month, has hired attorney LaMya Henry to fight the foreclosure. Henry joins RT’s Meghan Lopez to explain more about the case and how her client is risking his house, all because he was too punctual with his mortgage payments.

If you want to know why millennials are far more economically liberal than other generations, consider the news that colleges have started opening on-campus food banks to keep their students from going hungry.
"Menelik II created the country of Ethiopia as we know it today and united the people in order to fight against the invading Italians who were late to the Colonial race and wanted to create an Italian East African empire. He assembled the largest army in Ethiopian history at the time of over 100,000 soldiers of both men and women.
It wasn’t just the sheer size of the army that was impressive but the fact that every ethnicity was represented and led by the generals and princes of their region. They knew if they were not united they would not be strong, they knew they had to fight for their lands, their homes, their families, and their independence.
This army marched to Adwa in northern Ethiopia with Menelik at the head and his wife accompanying him leading her own battalion of soldiers
The Italian army tried to launch a surprise 3 column strike at night but the Ethiopians were ready and surrounded them and destroyed them in one night with barely any casualties. Ethiopia won its independence and Italian Colonial ambition was dead. They were shouting “Viva Menelik!” in the streets of Rome, the people of Italy wanted their soldiers home and thousands of Italian citizens signed petitions to remove their army from the horn of Africa. The Pope even sent letters to Menelik asking to please release Italian POWs.
Adwa put Ethiopia on the world stage. Ethiopia resisted colonialism and defeated a European colonial power and retained its freedom. Racially it was a victory of black over white. Adwa shocked Europeans and encouraged people of color all over the world being oppressed by Europeans like the United States with the Jim Crow laws at the time, and Apartheid in South Africa.
Psychologically Adwa has given the Ethiopian people a deep rooted sense of pride and independence which continues to live on in the hearts of the future generations. I am no exception. These are the stories I heard growing up and the stories I’ll tell my children one day….”
