We know the suffering... IV

You see this painting behind you young man, it’s been here since 1964 and I’ve been here since 1964 too, that’s 41 years you know!

 

41 years of misery in this survival game...

With no food..., no work..., no money..., no life...!

Hunger...? Poverty...? In a society that has it all!?

 

Do you think there will be change in your lifetime, Derick?

You know the suffering, we know the suffering...

...It’s historical!

 

A tribute to our brothers and sisters in New Orleans.

 

Painting: "Terra Seca" - 1964, 80 x 125cm. Oil on Board, by Orlando Mattos.

 

Model: 14-year old Derick, member of the Beija-Flor F.C.
