THE CHILDREN WHO DIED IN KOREA

 

 

We have had already

too many international tragedies.

A ferry boat full of young students

who went on a research trip

and what they have learned

was the rigor of death.

This leaves us full of sadness

and steals our sense of reality.

It is a nightmare that crosses

our galaxy and makes us

unconditional mother

of each child who

died in the accident.

Now we ask ourselves:

which prison is large enough

to fit all of us, guilty parents

of negligence for not

have kissed our children

the last goodbye?

 

 

 

 

MAY FIRST, LABOR DAY 2014

WORKER’S DAY!

Raising the minimum wage

will not happen

without a strike.

May First is Labor Day

all over the world,

except in the USA.

In other countries people

will go to applaud

workers parading on streets

while factories and offices

are closed for the holiday.

Now there is a demand for

an increase of the minimum wage.

The union provides the force.

The strike together with

public support will force

the corporations to pay more.

Workers: I vote for you

on May First 2014!

NJË MAJ, 2014, DITA E PUNËS

 DITA E PUNËTORËVE!

 

 

Ngritja e pagës minimale

s’do të ndodhë

pa një grevë.

Një Maj është Dita e Punës

në mbarë botën,

përveçse në SHBA.

Në vende të tjera njerëzit

do të shkojnë të duartrokasin

punëtorët duke parakaluar në rrugë,

ndërkohë fabrikat dhe zyrat

janë të mbyllura për festë.

Tashmë ekziston një kërkesë

për një rritje të pagës minimale.

Bashkimi siguron forcën.

Greva së bashku

me mbështetjen publike do të detyrojë

koorporatat të paguajnë më shumë.

Punëtorë : Unë votoj për ju

në Një Maj 2014!
