Stonehenge


Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of about 3.2 kilometres (2.0 mi) west of Amesbury and 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) north of Salisbury. One of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of earthwork stones. Archaeologists believe that the standing stones were erected around 2200 BC and the surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC. New archaeological evidence found by the Stonehenge Riverside Project indicates that Stonehenge served as a burial ground from its earliest beginnings. The dating of cremated remains found that burials took place as early as 3000 B.C, when the first ditches were being built around the monument. Burials continued at Stonehenge for at least another 500 years when the giant stones which mark the landmark were put up.

It provides the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic consequences, notably the risk of climate change caused by human activity.

Our planet is in danger ! We must act NOW !

Mother Nature is essential to mankind.It is our primary resource for all our fundamental needs such as feeding or looking after ourselves, finding a habitat and having fun. Yet today, the Earth is sending us signals to which we must pay attention: natural resources are depleting, animal and plant species are disappearing, the polar zones are melting, ecological catastrophes are in increasing numbers, the gap between rich and poor is growing.
It is urgent to act now, as our Planet is not doing well.

1974-1975: The Portuguese Revolution

On April 25th, 1974, a radical faction within the Portuguese Armed Forces, the MFA, revolted against the government. Until that day Portugal had been under a fascist dictatorship for over half a century. Whether the MFA was left or right wing inclined was unclear at the time. The military revolt created a space where people could effect change in their lives and the opportunity was grasped eagerly.

Stop Child Labour



"Chaga and the Chocolate Factory" is the name of the short story we have studied in the English class, 9th grade.It describes the inhuman conditions young children have to face in the cocoa plantations in the Ivory Coast, West Africa. Children are forced to work long hours, they are beaten and at night they are put in shacks.

It's time to put an end to Child Labour!
Let Kids go to School and be Happy!
