Art isn’t created just to please our eyes; it also transfers ideas and provokes thought on social problems. Austrian cartoonist Gerhard Haderer has been producing satirical illustrations and cartoons for adults for decades now, highlighting the awful problems with society. Greta JaruševičiūtėBoredPanda

Did you know that a couple of years ago, there were more selfie related deaths than shark related deaths?

Gerhard Haderer had even faced the court for one of his brutally honest books, The Life of Jesus. It triggered violent reactions, because of the society problems discussed in it, in Europe, especially from the Catholic Church. The story culminated in 2005 when Haderer was convicted in Greece for insulting the religious community and was given a six-month suspended sentence in absentia. A few months later, however, this verdict was corrected on appeal, and Gerhard Haderer was acquitted.

this happens so much at live concerts, just put the damn phone down and enjoy the experience!

The artist developed his realistic style when working as a graphic designer and illustrator for advertising agencies early in his career. It wasn’t until a cancer operation in 1985 when Gerhard abandoned his commercial dreams and became a freelance caricaturist and satirical illustrator, mainly focusing on social issues.

This I do not understand. I like reading books in paper but there is nothing wrong with electronic editions. If anything, they are more eco friendly. It is still the same activity just different medium.

Well, at least it looks like they’re all getting along.

I’ve heard it said, how ironic it is that often times today, family time is getting everyone to put down their small screens and all look at the same big screen for a while.

I’m not seeing this as a “fast food/obesity” thing, more like a CEO or corporate leader just greedily eating funds. Fat in wealth kind of thing

George Orwell – Animal Farm: ”Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”

Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua

Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, water man, kenya

The story of Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, the farmer bringing water to animals during droughts, has fascinated many. We asked him about his new project.

To many, Mwalua is a hero. When we point this out to him, he bursts out in sincere and melodious laughter. It seems like fame hasn’t changed him at all: he’s driven by his love for animals and for his land, a remote region of Kenya located about fifty kilometres from Tsavo National Park. It all started in November 2016, when Mwalua decided to rent a truck, get behind the wheel and drive for hours, multiple times a week, to bring water to the animals in the park, whose survival was being threatened by a terrible drought.  Ever since, he has made a name for himself as the “water man“. Buffalos and zebras know they can count on him. And now that his first project has taken off thanks to the contribution of those who believed in its potential, Mwalua wants to launch a new one. Something as simple as it is brilliant, that could contribute to safeguarding elephants, bees and communities: cultivating sunflowers. Elisabetta ScuriLifegate

Parabéns Nestlé

african_activis wAter
Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, presidente mundial da Nestlé, uma das maiores empresas de gêneros alimentícios mundiais, afirma que a água é como qualquer outra commoditie agrícola, e deveria ser privatizada, explorada comercialmente e precificada, e acredita que “o acesso à água não é um direito público nem um direito humano.”.
Grandes empresas multinacionais de bebidas, como a Coca-Cola e Nestlé sugam milhões de litros de água de poços subterrâneos, deixando o público sofrer com tais faltas e geralmente recebem privilégios sobre a água (e até isenções fiscais) e sobre a sociedade porque criam postos de trabalho.

Cidadão

Cidadão – Zé Ramalho

Tá vendo aquele edifício moço
Ajudei a levantar
Foi um tempo de aflição
Eram quatro condução
Duas prá ir, duas prá voltar
Hoje depois dele pronto
Olho prá cima e fico tonto
Mas me vem um cidadão
E me diz desconfiado
“Tu tá aí admirado?
Ou tá querendo roubar?”
Meu domingo tá perdido
Vou prá casa entristecido
Dá vontade de beber
E prá aumentar meu tédio
Eu nem posso olhar pro prédio
Que eu ajudei a fazer…

Tá vendo aquele colégio moço
Eu também trabalhei lá
Lá eu quase me arrebento
Fiz a massa, pus cimento
Ajudei a rebocar
Minha filha inocente
Vem prá mim toda contente
“Pai vou me matricular”
Mas me diz um cidadão:
“Criança de pé no chão
Aqui não pode estudar”
Essa dor doeu mais forte
Por que é que eu deixei o norte
Eu me pus a me dizer
Lá a seca castigava
Mas o pouco que eu plantava
Tinha direito a comer…

Tá vendo aquela igreja moço
Onde o padre diz amém
Pus o sino e o badalo
Enchi minha mão de calo
Lá eu trabalhei também
Lá foi que valeu a pena
Tem quermesse, tem novena
E o padre me deixa entrar
Foi lá que Cristo me disse:
“Rapaz deixe de tolice
Não se deixe amedrontar
Fui eu quem criou a terra
Enchi o rio, fiz a serra
Não deixei nada faltar
Hoje o homem criou asa
E na maioria das casas
Eu também não posso entrar
Fui eu quem criou a terra
Enchi o rio, fiz a serra
Não deixei nada faltar
Hoje o homem criou asas
E na maioria das casas
Eu também não posso entrar”

Hié! Hié! Hié! Hié!
Hié! Oh! Oh! Oh!
