Vile photos show the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border no one is talking about

With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.

According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.

♫ « Prince Loki, fabulous he, Loki Laufeyson,

Genuflect, show some respect, down on one knee.

Now try your best to save face, Try not to let your heart race.

Then come and see his spectacular trickery. Prince Loki,

mighty is he, Loki Laufeyson, Strong as ten Asgardans, definitely.

He faced the Frost Giant Lords, A hundred Midgardians with swords,

Who sent those fools to their lords ? Why Prince Loki… »

#now I have that song stuck in my head forever….

I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.

Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.

Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.

This happening to christian KURDS and yezidis

There has also been over 100 girls under the age of 15 that have been raped by ISIS soldiers and have been forced into committing suicide. The Kurdish Christians and Yezedis that are on the run are begging for a quick death. The ISIS leader has threatened to ‘drown our enemies in their own blood’ which includes non-muslim Kurds, Americans and other countries that have offered to help stop this genocide. What the Kurds are going through is completely tragic, and they’ve already been through so much. So many Kurdish peshmerga have been slaughtered, this is going to turn out to be a total massacre….

This is what I feel most strongly about at the moment. There is SO much ignorance amongst my peers who all seem to know nothing about this and it is disgraceful. Even Al Qaeda have disowned ISIS due to their behaviour. Having seen the Images on www.catholic.org I felt physically ill. This HAS to stop.

If you haven’t seen posts on the above then you haven’t been looking because I have seen a bunch. You can simultaneously care about more than one thing and to act as if YOU can’t make post bring attention to this issues since you have a problem with it’s supposed lack of coverage is ridiculous. Can we please stop this “okay x is going on but WHAT ABOUT Y!!!!” Because that’s not how you bring attention in a respectful manner to both issues
