Global-i is a national youth newsbeat on global affairs – on the U.S. role in the world and the world’s growing presence in the U.S. This national youth voice is a collaboration between YO! and four of the country’s most respected youth publications, New York-based New Youth Connections, Southern California-based LA Youth, VOX Youth Communications in Atlanta GA and Gumbo Magazine based in Milwakee WI. Whether multi or bi national, bi-lingual, bicultural, urban youth are America’s new globalists. And Global-i is their voice.

“The abuse itself in Iraq isn’t really what bothers me. That’s normal. If you put people in a setting like that, of course they’re gonna go crazy. It’s not an individual thing. It’s an institutional thing. What does bother me, though, is (Defense Secretary) Rumsfeld going on TV and saying that the abuse is un-American. Un-American? Look around, man. They need to look at what’s going on over here, too.”

When I told my cousin In Caracas Venezuela that I
was going to the neighborhood of 23 y Enero she began
to shake with fear, told me that she was not going
with me and that I should not go into these dangerous
areas. With this said I had a desire more than ever to
go and explore this ghetto that everyone feared.

I was the neatest kid in my bunk and Dan, one of the bunk leaders, was the sloppiest. One day he ordered me to clean his area. I was offended because he was a year younger than me. He was bossing me around and it was his mess.

After having been away for 7 years, I finally paid a visit to my hometown of Oaxaca, the city I was raise in for 13 years. Oaxaca is different from how it used to look, but in a sense is still the same, very friendly and plus you can see in some parts of the city the contrast of old and new.
