Los 43 Desaparecidos–Reacciones de una ‘Normalista’ de Planada

Posted  December 16, 2014  by  We'Ced

Yo siempre quise ser maestra desde niña. Mi padre, aunque no tenía muchos recursos, me ayudó a ir a la Normal más cerca que hubiera. Estudie en una escuela Normalista en Arteaga, Michoacán. Ademas de educarnos, hacíamos lo mismo [que los estudiantes desaparecidos], hacíamos huelgas y nos apoyaron diferentes escuelas Normalistas como la de nosotros y la de Ayotzinapa. Así como esos estudiantes andaban protestando, nosotros así lo hacíamos.

The 43 Missing in Mexico – Thoughts From a ‘Normalista’ in Planada

Posted  December 15, 2014  by  We'Ced

My name is Carolina Arceo. I’m from Planada, California, and I’m 45 years old. I was motivated to attend [the protests in Merced] in support of the 43 missing normalista students when I heard an announcement at my church urging the congregation to attend.

Posted  December 5, 2014  by  We'Ced

Merced Youth, Community Responds to Election Results

Posted  November 13, 2014  by  We'Ced

Since the War on Drugs started in the early 70’s our communities have been hurting and punished through incarceration, with no real rehabilitation opportunities. For several years my older brother was caught up in a vicious cycle of addiction and incarceration. To me the passage of Prop 47 meant offering him a second opportunity. It was about sending the message that black and brown lives matter!

Merced Youth: #2Young2Vote But Not Too Young To Care

Posted  November 3, 2014  by  We'Ced

If I could vote this election I would vote for Prop 1 because it saves our water and our marine animals. I would also vote for Measure T because all sections of Merced should have a say in this city. As of now, everything is one sided because the city council are all from the non-ghetto side of Merced.
