Matt Tilley and Joe Hildebrand, enemies of Colombia

f

Matt Tilley and Joe Hidebrand used their program in the Australian Triple M Radio to insult Colombians with racism, hatred and discriminating comments.

Here once more another post about Australia and this time it has to see with Colombia, my proud country. After years knowing people from around the world, I only have appreciation for all humanity, all countries and all cultures. Personally I have many Aussie friends and I find them simple, kind and with vision… less two guys: Matt Tilley and Joe Hildebrand from Triple M Radio. Well, these two persons made very hateful comments against Colombia and let us see the transcription if this is coming from which kind of persons:

“I think what we have got to remember is that they have a sort of ragged history, remember the guy that kicked an own goal for Colombia once and then was killed”

Show me your city, an intercultural experience

show me your city logoWhat is the common thing between Colombian and Cambodian young people? “Show me your city“, an intercultural experience. In 2013 I agreed with two teachers of the Pontifical Bolivariana University of Medellín, Maribel Rodríguez and Ariel Acevedo, to make an academic experience between their students of graphic design and my students of social communication of Don Bosco Sihanoukville and Kep.

In the story they have to show their culture, traditions and environment. Communication is of course an issue, but we wanted to demonstrate the effects of a global youth culture.  Read More…

Two overpopulation examples

To illustrate what I call the overpopulation informal fallacy, we can make a short comparison of two countries: Japan as one industrialized and Colombia as one in development. We have enough information about the Japanese profile as a global economic power. The Colombian profile is more confusing, leading very often to misconceptions and several speculations due to its fame of violence, drug cartels and guerrilla fighting for decades. I think these two very interesting countries are a good sample to demonstrate that overpopulation is a concept intended to manipulate the planet from an egocentric perspective from a privileged minority.  Read More…

Remembering Vann Nath

Vann Nath and Albeiro Rodas 8th March 2009

On 8th March 2009 I got the privilege to visit Mr. Vann Nath, the famous S-21’s painter survivor in his house of Phnom Penh. He would pass away two years after, on 5th September 2011. I got this opportunity thanks to a team of television journalists that were doing a kind of show and requested me to be their journalist guide throughout the Khmer Rouge regime history. To be frank, it was a very superficial approach and it is not even worthy to mention who they were, so the only thing I appreciate is the opportunity to meet persons like Vann Nath, Bou Men, the chief of the S-21’s prison and many other activities.  Read More…
