Assemble all the worst things in America-gambling, liquor, cigarettes and toxic fumes, sewage, waste disposal, prostitution-put it all together. Then you dump it on black people." East St. Louis begins at the Monsanto fence. Rain starts falling as we cross the railroad tracks, and then another set of tracks, and pass a series of dirt streets with houses that are mostly burnt-out shells, the lots between them piled with garbage bags
When they are gone I will come forward to fight; and if they return I will go deep into the mountains. When I have harrassed the eastern hosts four or five times in this manner, will they not grow weary? This is a plan for destroying the enemy in safety. What are your views?” All agreed, “It ought to be so.” Then quickly within the castle they dug a mighty hole seven feet deep, filling it with 30 bodies of the slain (who were fallen down dead into the ditch in great numbers), and piled up charcoal and firewood on them. Then they awaited a night of pouring rain and driving wind.
Chapter One: The capture of Liaodong Grey was the dead city, the towering squares of the melancholic patchwork quilt wept over their remains; their tears blood, they cried only of the unparalleled damage. Dust circulated the scarred city, threatening to engulf it. The wind was tempestuous; it howled and screamed through the destroyed labyrinth, its palms buffeting anything in its pathways. It went at each building with amazing speed, tearing at the bricks’ A small green river of hats and military uniforms slithered its way through the streets as hundreds of men and women and children gazed helplessly at it. The communist army of China had penetrated through to the Liaodong peninsula.
GCSE Shanty Town Revision Location: Rio De Janiero Brazil Name: Rochina Rochina is a Favella located on the hills surrounding Rio There are over 100,000 people living there Housing is poor quality and made of broken bricks, corrugated iron sheets and wood meaning they are venerable to collapse, and their location on the steep hillside means that they are venerable to be being destroyed by mudslides. The houses tend to be located on the foothills near to the main roads and water supplies This means that they have sewage from higher up the mountain running through them causing diseases like cholera to be a strong hazard and can lead to outbreaks of diseases such as cholera in 1992. It has almost no sewage system and no running water
The first rhetorical device I noticed in the novel was Imagery. The quote stated "Explosions, horses and camels chasing people, shooting, screaming, crying: it was like the end of the world". The quote described how hectic it was in their village while they were being attacked. Everything was chaotic there was
They live in extreme poverty, mixed with corruption, greed and betrayal. They trust no one. In Juarez, Hell is real and fearless demons prowl the streets destroying anyone that stands in their way. The cartels, police and army openly slaughter, torture, rape and kidnap inhabitants as if human life has no meaning. Its inconceivable to imagine that this mayhem is linked to the global economy as Juarez
German Migrations: * Hitler was the leader. * During the 1600s and 1700s, wars ravaged Germany. Marching armies trampled down fields of grain, stole cattle, and burned down farmsteads. In their wake, famines spread over the land. Taxes, levied to pay for the war, added to the people's plight.
I've saw plenty of dead bodies floating in the disgusting toxic water, as we walked through the water to get to higher ground. We saw trees on top of the street wires, cars fill with water up to their roof tops, and watched people fight over food to survive, and my town was like a ghost town. I heard about elderly people dying in attics and hospitals believing that the world didn’t care as they slowly ran out of medication and oxygen. I saw sick babies and paraplegic living for five days outside in the hot weather, while gangs of armed youth’s violently terrorized filthy camps of society's most suffered and abandoned. These affected people were placed in the massive outdoors that was so
Ashes, ashes: the church burned the dead when burying them became too laborious. We all fall down: dead (Cartwright 42). The Dance of Death, or also know as danse macabre, shows skeletons mingling with living men in daily scenes (Knox, Boisestate.edu). Since death was everywhere, artists were clear to show that death was amongst everyone and that the plague had no remorse or mercy. It killed everyone it came in contact
The theme of violence is depicted by the menacing introduction to the poem as we open at the funeral of a murderous gangster. This is shown by “the clouds piled up, dragged their rain through the cemetery”. This creates a bleak and sinister atmosphere which echoes the events taking place. By using personification, it’s as if the clouds are alive and manifesting this sombre mood. Immediately this sets the tone for the violence later in the poem.
