A photography with memories

If you ask me about one photo that I like it, I really don't know what answers. But I started to think about some moments that I will never forget. This is one of them.
This photo was taken 15th December of 2011 by Reuters, the world's largest international multimedia news agency, in Estadio Nacional. That day Universidad de Chile won the Copa Sudamericana against Liga Universitaria de Quito. In the first final played in Quito, the chilean team won 0-1 in a good actuation. In this match Eduardo Vargas score twice and Gustavo Lorenzetti one time. With a 4-0 this in the global score, 
"the blues" claim Copa Sudamericana crown.

I like it because means the first international tittle of my favorite team, that with fighting spirit and humility, achieve the trophy. In bottom can see the people celebrating and happy, the unconditional supporter that every weekend go to the stadium and make the football a party.

Labour Day in Santiago

In this historic day the labour movement converge with the student movement, that also integrate the working class, that has been going in a strong demonstration for a year ago. The day was filled with many events and demonstrations that reaffirm that the economic system are in crisis.

At 11 o'clock thousands of workers organized in the CUT (the bigger federation of workers in Chile) started the march from the front of Universidad de Santiago. The student movement also include the large column with signs of their demands. Political parties, social movements and communities with so much people complete the ten thousand that assist to the event. After that cultural acts in Plaza Brasil and in many parks made the day a really commemoration of the historical workers demands.

The actual crisis of representation that are experimenting the institutionalism in respect of the society, plus the social climate, requires answers of their demands with democratization tools and ways to enpower the people.

I believe that the labour day are always a good moment to think one more time about the society and how is configurated. The workers are the base of the society and historicaly they has been leave aside.
