On December 1, 1955 in Montogmery.Alabama, Parks when se was 42, refused to obey bus driver James Blake's order because she didn´t want to leave her sit for a white passenger. Her action was not the first of this type: Irene Morgan, in 1946, and Sarah Louise Keys, in 1955, had won rulings before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Interstate Commerce Commission respectively in the area of interstate bus travel.
Because of that Parks becam an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement and Parks beame an internation resisten of racial segration.When this occurs Parks works for ‘rights and racial equality’,but she lost her job so she went to work to Detroit.Michigan and get a job similar to that.
In my opinion Parks is an important campaigner because she want the same rigths and racial equality, and I thin all we are the same and we don´t have to discriminate someone beecaus of his/her coloir or because she is English or Spanish.But I don´t understand very well that if she work por the equal rights and the racial equality we she didn´t want to give up her sit for the white passenger to sit on.
I agree with her because she is fighting against a very important factor in the actual society. Pollution has reached a very high level and we all have to contribute to reduce pollution.
Julia Butterfly Hill is an environment activist. He goes up a California Redwood for 738 days to prevente this tree is not going to cutting it down. He lived in a 32-food camper with his father, mother and two younger brothers. She write a book called The Legacy Of Luna. His nickname is Butterfly because when she is six years old a butterfly landed in his hand and stay there entire time. His father travell a lot because the job and go town to town, bringing his family with he. When Julia was in the middle school his family and she settle Jonesboro Arkansas. When Hill was 22, she worked at driver for a friend and suffered a car crash.
After recuperating from his accident, she goes to California with a road trip to try to save the forest from the people to want to cut some trees. One organizes that want to cut the trees are the Pacific Lumber Co. who were clear-cutting. Hill not contributed to any enviromental organization, she deceded to act by his self undertake the act of the civil disobedience, but some she was supported by another organizations and volunteers, called Earth First.
I agree with him because his theory is good for the people to know about poverty and famines.

In 1931 she came to Madrid to work in the Mundo Obrero newspaper. In 1933 she became president of the Anti fascist Women Union.
La Pasionaria was in prison lots of times, because of her speeches and her participation on lots of comunist protests. She died in Madrid in 1989.
Some of her famous quotes form part of an imaginary set of human ideas of freedom and hope. She has been the inspiration for lots of poets and singers like Pablo Neruda, Rafael Alberti or Ana Belén.
I agree with her because she was one of the first women who entered in politics during the Spanish Republic and then during the Spanish Civil War she participated in the Republic party. She also fought for her ideas going to hunger strikes, talking on the radio giving her opinion, participating on lots of protests etc. All that shows that she was a very brave woman because she wasn’t scare about what can happen to her by doing all that things, and she never resigned to her dreams and ideas.

The swimming pool.
The next 22nd of June, we are going on a trip to the swimming pool in Carrascal. We will leave our highschool at 9:00 am, and we'll come back at 2:00 pm more or less.
I think we'll do some activities with other students from different highschools, and we will be supervised by teachers, rescuers and monitors. We wanted to go the amusement park, but we couldn't and, fortunately, we have had the chance to go to the swimming pool. Anyway, I think we'll have a good time together, and one of the reasons will be because we will finish highschool very soon! (By: Lourdes Fuentes Domínguez, 3ºB )
The 22nd of June, the students of Butarque High School are going to have a little party, because they want to celebrate the end of the year. We will dance, play football and other sports, and see different dancing styles. Finally we hope to have a nice day! (By: Ana Escribano López, 3ºB)

Unfortunately, our mates didn't win, but they came very proud of their work at 12:45 p.m., when we were having our always interesting, stimulating, fascinating English class.

The girls volleyball team managede this year to move to fourth. The game was exciting because the school Antonio Gala was the same that disqualified us last year to move to semifinals. The match was closely contested, but unfortunately the girls lost 1-2 in our school, winning only in the first set. Just before finishing, Bea got injured with a sprained muscle but fortunately it was not very serious and we hope she'll recover soon. So we will have to wait until next year. (By Andrea Z.)
The Red Cross.
On Thursday May 14th, the organization Red Cross came to inform all students about volunteering, explaining what it entails to be a volunteer, the groups with whom you can collaborate, etc. To volunteer you need to be at least 16 years old, but if you're under that age, you can take part in workshops and different activities. In Leganés they are about environment and youth. (By Raquel C.)
What women invent.
The nineteenth of May the group 3ºB was invited by a mate of the class to watch a play, What women invent, played at Rigoberta Menchú Theater. The play is about an old lady who believes in ghosts and her niece. This niece, along with the maids of the house, makes the old woman believe she is dead. The play was very good. (By Iria C.)

It's not so personal, it's unlikely in me writing about love =)
¿Dónde quedan nuestros sueños?
Vuelve, vuelve aún te quiero.
Te has ido, y no vuelves
Te has ido sin mis besos
No dejas ni una caricia
No dijiste ni un te quiero.
¿Dónde estás que no te veo?
¿Vuelves ya o es un sueño?
Vuelve, vuelve, te recuerdo.
Tu tacto de terciopelo,
Como brillaban tus ojos
Que me hacían ver el cielo
¿Cumplirás pronto mi sueño?
Vuelve, vuelve o me muero.
(c) Silvia San Segundo, 2008/2009
Volví a pegarle. Sería la última vez. Podía recuperar el control, calmarme. Una más. Y otra. Y una última en el estómago para dejarle en el suelo. Después me reí y miré a mis dos colegas. Carlos me miraba con su habitual expresión de admiración excesiva. Sentí como mi imagen se deshacía en sus ojos claros antes de mirar a Javier, un chico problemático pero poco agresivo, que me observaba con desaprobación.
-Podrías haberle matado, Adrián. Dime qué te ha hecho ese chaval.
-Es un pijo de mierda, tío, y lo sabes. Ese tío se ha ventilado a mi novia, ¿lo entiendes? Y todo gracias a una camisa de marca y unas zapatillas pijas.
-Quizá le guste –sugirió Carlos, sin malicia.
-Sí claro, y yo soy tu abuela, no te digo. A ninguna tía con un mínimo coeficiente intelectual le puede gustar un tío así.
Carlos bajó la cabeza, como de costumbre. En el fondo me parecía un cobarde, pero me hacía la pelota, y eso me convenía. Le miré detenidamente, y pensé que nunca me había parado a pensar en su aspecto. La verdad es que tenía pinta de chulo barato, pero, a pesar de mi narcisismo, debía reconocer que el tío era bastante guapo.
-Yo sólo digo que este muchacho no se merecía la paliza que le has metido, Adrián. Míralo, no puede ni moverse.
-Pues que llame a su mami.
-Le has roto el móvil –me indicó Carlos por lo bajini.
-¿Qué pasa tíos, que nos vamos a quedar aquí a que vengan los maderos? No quiero volver al reformatorio ese de mierda. Los vigilantes se creían bomberos, no te digo. Yo no vuelvo a pisar eso en la vida.
-Quizá deberías volver y aprender por qué estuviste allí, Adrián –habló de nuevo Javier.
-No quiero hablar de ese tema, tío.
-Tal vez deberías. Es sólo una sugerencia. Puedes hacer con tu vida lo que te dé la gana, que ya eres mayorcito. Pero si piensas que voy a dejar a este chavalín aquí tirado ya te puedes ir dando la vuelta con tu amigo, que ya le faltará tiempo para lamerte el culo. Yo me voy a quedar a ayudarlo.
-Vale ya, ¿no? Que yo no te he hecho nada, tío, ¿qué tienes contra mí? –le preguntó Carlos, encarándole.
-Tengamos la fiesta en paz, ¿no? Ya está bien, creo yo.
-No, de lo que ya está bien es de pegarle palizas a la gente porque te da la gana y encima traerte al niñato este para que disfrute el espectáculo. Adrián, tiene quince años y mucha vida por delante, y no creo que verle en unos cuantos años haciendo lo que tú vas haciendo sea una visión agradable.
-¿Te quieres tranquilizar tronco? –le pregunté a Javier, levantándole el puño.
-Siempre igual, te crees que con levantarme la mano lo tienes todo hecho, tío. Estás muy equivocado.
-¿Se puede saber qué ha pasado aquí? –una mujer joven, no muy alta, e increíblemente atractiva, se había arrodillado frente al pijo.
-No lo sabemos, pasábamos por aquí e intentamos ayudarle, pero mis amigos empezaron a discutir. –Sonrió Carlos.
-Gracias a Dios que he pasado, está escupiendo mucha sangre. Le han pegado bien. Sergio, ¿me oyes?
-Espere… ¿Le conoce?
-Por supuesto, es mi hermano. ¿Me ayudáis o no?
-Lo siento yo me tengo que pirar –solté sin pensar. Salí corriendo. Sólo pensaba en correr y llegar a casa sano y salvo. Sano y salvo, eso que el pijo de Sergio no podría cumplir esta noche. Lloré. Por primera vez en tres años, desde que salí del reformatorio, lloré. Las lágrimas fueron algo útil. Me llevaron a recapacitar sobre aquellos desaprovechados años, sobre que había cumplido veinte años y seguía comportándome como un niño. Y todo, absolutamente todo, porque mi novia, la exuberante y famosa Noelia, había decidido traicionarme. ¿Por qué me costaba tanto entenderlo?
-¿Adrián? –escuché una voz tras la puerta de mi habitación, y cuando abrí la puerta me encontré cara a cara con Sandra, mi hermana pequeña. Era una niña de trece años, guapa, bajita y rubia, con unos ojos verdes iguales a los míos, sólo que los suyos eran limpios y dulces.
Se sentó en mi cama y me cogió la mano.
-¿Qué ha pasado? –preguntó con su voz de soprano ligero.
-Nada –me sequé las lágrimas con el dorso de la mano, pero sospeché que ya era demasiado tarde.
Sandra se quedó mirando al vacío, con el rostro contraído y preocupado. Me incliné hacia ella para darle un beso en la mejilla, pero me rechazó, apartándose.
-¿No crees que hay que poner fin a esto?
-No veo el modo.
Sandra se giró y salió de la habitación, llorando ante una causa perdida.
-¿Estás loco, tío? –me dijo Javier, cuando, al día siguiente, quedamos para salir-. Aquella tía por poco nos mata. Nos quería llevar a declarar como testigos, y le tuvimos que decir que no habíamos visto nada. Aquello sí que fue bueno. Nos dijo que le habíamos pegado nosotros, y se lo llevó al hospital. Creo que está realmente grave.
Yo me reí y sonreí a Carlos, tratando de llamar su atención. Sin embargo, por primera vez, permaneció inmune a mi risa. No sabía que había pasado, pero todo había cambiado en una sola noche. O eso creí hasta que Carlos me devolvió la mirada y dibujó una sonrisa en su redondo rostro adolescente. Me sentí mucho más tranquilo.
-¿Vamos hoy a mi casa? –propuse-. No está mi hermana.
Javier pareció ponerse tenso, aunque deduje que sería un escalofrío.
-No… Vamos donde siempre –e inició el paso. ¿Desde cuándo se rechazaban mis propuestas?
Sin embargo les seguí hasta el pequeño y aislado parque dónde nos reuníamos normalmente. Me senté al borde de un banco y encendí un cigarrillo. Le ofrecí uno a los chicos, que declinaron la oferta. No sabía por qué, pero tenía un mal presentimiento. Mis temores se realizaron cuando vi un Audi recién matriculado dirigirse hacia nosotros. Pero cuando me giré para avisar a mis amigos, no había nadie.
-¿Qué queréis? –pregunté cuando un chaval alto, musculoso y moreno se acercó.
-Así que tú… Lo suponía. Te creías muy listo allí –lo recordaba. Era un chico del reformatorio, le había pegado para quitarle el tabaco en un par de ocasiones.
-¿A qué viene esto?
-Tu amiguito ese al que has pegado me ha pagado. Bueno, miento, lo ha hecho su adorable hermana. A tus amigos también les pagó. No se lo tengas en cuenta.
-¿Pagado para qué? -y vi el revólver.
Mi último pensamiento, fue para mi hermana, mi niña, la única persona que había confiado en mí. Por culpa de mis continuas mentiras, se iba a quedar sola. Recordé su rostro, y, arrepintiéndome de mi propia vida, me dejé llevar por la muerte.

So, in the morning, the Literature Department is going to proceed to give the winner their awards and then, some teachers and the winners will go to the centre of Leganés to read some fragments of “El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha”. It’s a tradition!
So if you haven’t got class and want to read it in public to celebrate International Day of the Book, come on and go to the Salvador Church and enjoy this beautiful book.
On Thursday 21st we did the famous test of CDI (Conocimientos y Destrezas Indispensables or Essentials Knowledges and Squills). It's a test only for the Comunidad de Madrid students and it's to know how smart we are.
There are two parts: Maths and Language & Literature. A teacher of Luis Vives called Luis came to pass us the test. It wasn't difficult but not easy.

I saw many museums of this city like the Hunterian Museum and Hunterian Art Gallery,Burrel collection, where I saw pictures of painters as important as Renoirand Cezane, The Museum of the Transport. I shopped in the Princes square , it's fantastic ! ,there are many shops and bars , tea rooms and it's very big . I bought many things for my and my family.Also I was in the West End and there are incredible antique shops, places of crafts and old bookshops, things very originals. To eat I found a Spanish bar Barca Tapas Cafe Andaluz. The food was really nice it was as if you were in own Spain .
Also I visited the society of Mackintosh , and One of the things that more I liked was the stadium of the Celtic Glasgow .The stadium is impressive and the people are very nice and agreeable. And to end I visited the university of Glasgow .It's an enormous place and very curious of seeing and the boys were very gallants.
The trip was very exciting and enterteining .
I would like to return to Glasgow !.
This Easter holidays my friends and I have been to Glasgow. This city is fantastic, it has got all, good shopping centres, very nice buildings and a interesting science centre.
The first day we decided to walk to The West End, I really like this quartier because it has got so beautiful houses and also an important history. The next day we went to Glasgow's Tower because the day was very good (it wasn't cloudy). The best of all were the sights, almost all the city can be watched. The next days we were in some importants shopping centres like Buchanana Street and also we were in the Hunterain Museum and seeing some Mackintosh works (a Glaswegian architect and later a pinter and a designer).
In conclusion, Glasgow it's fantastic and I had a very good time.

Hello, what's up? I am going to count the trip I made last year to Scotland.
First I visited the capital, Edinburgh.
Then I went to Glasqow, which is a very nice city with nice people.
The first day, after leaving the bags in the most plushy hotel in Glasgow, I went to see the University, one of the oldest in Europe.
The next day I went to a match at the Celtic Football Club Celtic Park with other supporters.
Then we went to a café in Buchanan Street.
The next day, the last day of my visit, I went to see the beautiful cathedral, which is next to the university. Finally I saw the Hunterian Museum.

I will sincerely tell you that we chose perfectly our destination; Glasgow is one of the most fascinating cities of Scotland!
Firstly, the day after arriving to the hotel, we decided to visit some shopping streets, and our guide recommend us going to Buckanan Street, in the city centre. There are a lot of shops that aren't in Leganés, so I personally took advantages of it and I bought some presents.
The next day, there were some planned activities: we could go to a football match where The Celtic Football Club played, we could visit the University of Glasgow, or finally we could do an art excursion, which showed us some Mackintosh works ( a Glaswegian architect) and the hunterian museum.
As a conclusion, I must tell that I visited everything due to we had a very long week. Besides we learnt a lot and enjoy our visit, but, don't be jealous; we tried to buy some souvenirs.
We´ll see when we arrive there. Wishes:

I must say I'm missing you a lot, but I'm also having so fun! I'm with all my friends visiting this wonderful city.
On Monday we went to the West End where we visited some streets like the Buchanan Street, the Prince's Square and the Merchant City. It was raining, but the city was beautiful with all the rain.
On Tuesday and on Wednesday we went to visit the Hunterian Museum, which has a fantastic dinosaur's footprints collection.
This summer I think you should visit the Mackintosh Museum and specially The Willow Tea Rooms.
This week-end The Old Firm is playing!
Kisses and love
