Nicolás de Jesús (Chilpancingo, Mexico): Ratas del mundo, 2008
Ratas del Mundo (rats of the world). We can not call it with another name since the obvious consequences of the global political economics have pushed and trapped humanity in a corner. Now humanity is captivated by the destruction caused by those few who misuse the natural resources that belong to the majority of the people in this planet. Those privileged few are part of well organized mafia which is responsible for the current economic disaster, wars, hunger and the massive migrations of people to the rich countries. The wealth of those countries comes from the exploitation of developing countries in complicity with politicians who betray those who trustily voted them in. Those politicians are part pf a few millionaires who instead of representing pride should represent humanity’s shame.
