Supporters of Bolivia’s President Evo Morales march in a demonstration against striking workers, in La Paz, Bolivia on May 20, 2013.

On April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin completed the first manned space flight. The 27-year-old circled Earth in the Vostok 1 (Восток-1) spacecraft for one hour and 48 minutes, marking the opening of a new chapter in space exploration.
Now, Russia celebrates this achievement with Cosmonautics Day, in which ceremony participants process through a series of important commemorative landmarks. It begins near Gagarin’s statue in the city of Korolyov, moves to his grave in the Red Square’s Kremlin Wall Necropolis and continues through Cosmonauts Alley before concluding in Novodevichy Cemetery.
In the last decade, April 12 has also become the occasion to host “Yuri’s Night” worldwide as an occasion to inspire public interest in space exploration. As of 2011, the United Nations also adopted a resolution declaring April 12 to be the International Day of Human Space Flight.
This is from the slut walk. One of the arguments is that girls ask for rape because they wear slutty clothes, short skirts, tight, low-cut tops. This boy is an example of the fact that rape victims can look like anyone, you, me, this boy. Rapists. Don’t. Discriminate.
I promised a long time ago that I’d reblog this whenever I saw it on my dash. No regrets, it breaks my heart every single time.
an incredibly important message, rape is rape. no one is ever asking for it. a woman has the right to dress how ever they want - it is society that identifies risque dressing as ‘asking for it’, and in my opinion, that way of thinking needs to be diminished.
Seriously if you see this and don’t reblog it, I have NO respect for you
Manchester orchestra - Don´t Speak (No Doubt cover)
While I was listening to this No doubt cover, somehow, I picture myself in one of those scenes where you have a bad day at work doesn´t matter how much you try things won´t go as you planned. You find yourself in your room having a beer and listening to this song. not that this ever happened to me but it´s the kinda feeling that I got, mega dramatic version of this already dramatic song.
