Novosibirsk region, Siberia: A power plant and industrial tailings pond now occupy the place where thousands of executed prisoners were buried in mass graves by Soviet authorities in the 1930s. The burial site, located in the town of Kubyshev, was first discovered by construction workers in the 1960s when they were digging the foundations of a nearby chemical plant. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the Russian government issued approximately 1500 exoneration notices to the families of those buried in #Kubyshev. The letters stated that their relative had been executed in Kubyshev, but had been innocent of the charges brought against them. Hundreds of Mennonites were amongst the victims. 📸 @ianwillms #WhyWeWalk #BurialSite #BorealCollective at Novosibirsk, Russia

When they came back, a clear unrest was shown, the farmers forced the scribing to make land titles for them, by nailing in his hands a sharpen wood from a local tree called Cocuite, a common tree that is used to make natural fences that divide ranches, Juan Jose removed the imperial army uniform and escaped, they deserted and soon became traitors.

Municipal police in the town of Tancítaro, Michoacán, Mexico, October 5, 2017. Tancítaro, known as the ‘world capital of avocado production’, saw its citizens take up arms against organized crime in 2013, along with other cities in the State of Michoacán. The municipal police are funded in part by local avocado growers. Today the local police and government are still largely made up of citizen forces. 📸 @brett_gundlock for @nytimes. #Mexico #BorealCollective #NamaraReps #Michoacan at Michoacán, Mexico
