Rebels, crazy, arrogant; We stood before power and said 'here we are.' We put our body that is the only thing we have to put. . . We do this because we have overcome death, dear children. We beat the executioner. This is pure life, full of love and embraces . . . with those children who were born to us later, we are sowing a new path, which is not revolutionary, building, marching along with those who need us.” (May 1, 2006, Wikipedia; photo alchetrn)
