Achterbahn: the story behind Berlin's abandoned Spreepark

"Norbert Witte hatte einen Traum: er wollte aus dem Berliner Spreepark–einem Freizeitpark, der zu DDR–Zeiten unter dem Namen »Plänterwald« berühmt geworden ist–den größten Rummelplatz des gerade wiedervereinigten Deutschlands machen. Stattdessen ging der König der Karusselle pleite und setzte sich mit seiner Familie und dem größten Teil seiner Gerätschaften im Jahre 2002 nach Peru ab. Er hinterließ der Stadt Berlin einen Riesenberg Schulden und ein großes Chaos. In Peru verwickelt er sich und seinen 20jährigen Sohn in Drogengeschäfte. Beide landen im Knast: Norbert Witte in Deutschland, sein Sohn in einem der härtesten Knäste der Welt…"

Uncontacted tribe found deep in Amazon rainforest

"Brazilian authorities say they have pinpointed the location of a community of ancient and uncontacted tribespeople in one of the remotest corners of the Amazon rainforest.

Fabricio Amorim, a regional co–ordinator for Brazil's indigenous foundation, Funai, said the indigenous community had been found after three small forest clearings were detected on satellite images. Flyovers were carried out in April, confirming the community's existence.

Four straw–roofed huts, flanked by banana trees and encircled by thick jungle, can be seen in photographs taken during the flyover.

The community is likely to be home to about 200 people, probably from the Pano linguistic group which straddles the border between Brazil, Peru and Bolivia, according to Funai.

Amorim said the region – known as the Vale do Javari – contained 'the greatest concentration of isolated groups in the Amazon and the world' but warned of growing threats to their survival."

Answers to exploitation in photographs

"In 1973, while conducting a literacy project in a barrio of Lima, Peru, the noted Brazilian educator Paulo Freire (and his colleagues) asked people questions in Spanish, but requested the answers in photographs. When the question 'What is exploitation?' was asked, some people took photos of a landlord, grocer, or a policeman (Boal 1979, p.123). One child took a photo of a nail on a wall. It made no sense to adults, but other children were in strong agreement. The ensuing discussions showed that many young boys of that neighbourhood worked in the shoe–shine business. Their clients were mainly in the city, not in the barrio where they lived. As their shoe–shine boxes were too heavy for them to carry, these boys, rented a nail on a wall (usually in a shop), where they could hang their boxes for the night. To them, that nail on the wall represented 'exploitation. 'The 'nail on the wall' photograph spurred widespread discussions in the Peruvian barrio about other forms of institutionalized exploitation, including ways to overcome them."
