The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Mexico 2007

Dozens of nude and semi-nude Mexican farmers, men and women, from Veracruz state, protested in front of Bellas Artes Palace, in the heart of Mexico City.
The farmers chose this unusual form of protest to call attention to their claim over lost lands.
They call themselves “Movimiento de los 400 Pueblos” ( Movement of The 400 Villages ).
A former governor and senator at this day, send to jail in only 4 days more of 500 peasants and stolen almost 5000 acres of their land. From time to time, they came to the city to rise their demands for justice, but nobody pays attention to them.

A few months ago.

Me imagino que si han decidido hacer este tipo de demostraciones es porque están cansados de que no les presten atención. Por otro lado, pienso que llevar las cosas a este extremo los pone en una situación criticable (que los terminen juzgando de exhibicionistas) que le quita seriedad a su causa.

Fantásticas fotos, como siempre.

Well, they certainly got my attention. What was the result of this demonstration; did it accomplish what they hoped?
