Let the Donald Trump bashing begin – #Mexican artisan launches #piñata #donaldtrump [#geekgirl]

Donald Trump piñata

Artist Dalton Javier Avalos Ramirez created a piñata of Donald Trump for fellow Mexicans to take their frustrations out on.

Mr “Piñateria” Ramirez told The Independent that he created Mr Trump’s paper-mâché and cardboard look-a-like in one day and was inspired by his controversial presidential campaign announcement speech.

“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime,” Mr Trump said in at Trump Tower in New York City. “They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

The craftsman, from Reynosa in Mexico’s Tamaulipas state, said that the piñatas provide an outlet for Mexicans to vent their frustrations at Mr Trump’s controversial portrayal of Mexicans.

“It was a way of expressing disagreement of what he said about us Mexicans,” the artist said. “Donald Trump should not promote racism against Mexicans or Latinos in America.”

#Kickstarter project to back #FLUIDØ a film set in the post-AIDS future of 2060 #aids [#geekgirl]

FLUIDØ is VIRUS, SEX, HACK, DRUG & CONSPIRACY. Shu Lea Cheang, director of cyperpunk classic I.K.U., is set to direct FLUIDØ in Berlin

FLUIDØ is set in the post-AIDS future of 2060, where the government is the first to declare the era AIDS FREE. The mutated AIDS viruses give birth to humans that have genetically evolved in a very unique way. These so called ZERO GENs are gender fluid humans. They are bio-drug carriers, as their white fluid is the hyper narcotic for the 21st century, taking over the markets of the 20th century white powder high. Their ejaculate is intoxicating and the new form of sexual commodity in the future. The new drug, code named DELTA, diffuses through skin contact and creates an addictive high.

#Help stop the senseless killing of #Waterbirds & #Ducks #ALV [#geekgirl]

Support the end of Duck hunting.

BE A VOICE FOR PEACE

The Victorian duck hunting season has begun. Animal Liberation Victoria rescue teams are on the wetlands, preparing to save as many waterbirds as they can when the dawn killings continue.

YOU can help us stop this slaughter! Be a voice for waterbirds by signing the petition to ban duck shooting: SHARE IF YOU CARE

Each year in Victoria (Australia) the tranquillity of our wetlands is destroyed by a State sanctioned massacre. Starting on Saturday the 21st of March 2015, gun shots will ring out at dawn and then every morning after that for the next three months. Our native water birds will be under attack from thousands of shooters, who are often inexperienced and reckless. Many birds will be shot but not killed outright and will be left to die slow torturous deaths or will drown, unable to swim or fly any further due to painful injuries.

Our native water birds have the right to live unharmed and in peace in their natural home. Please help to end this barbarism, tell our Premier the killing must end now!
