The Olmec were the first major civilization in Mexico

The Olmec flourished during Mesoamerica's Formative period, dating roughly from as early as 1500 BCE to about 400 BCE. Pre-Olmec cultures had flourished in the area since about 2500 BCE, but by 1600-1500 BCE Early Olmec culture had emerged centered around the San Lorenzo Tenochtitl?n site near the coast in southeast Veracruz. They were the first Mesoamerican civilization and laid many of the foundations for the civilizations that followed. Among other "firsts", the Olmec appeared to practice ritual bloodletting and played the Mesoamerican ballgame, hallmarks of nearly all subsequent Mesoamerican societies. The most familiar aspect of the Olmecs is their artwork, particularly the aptly named "colossal heads". The Olmec civilization was first defined through artifacts which collectors purchased on the pre-Columbian art market in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Olmec artworks are considered among ancient America's most striking.

American Dream Movement

Van Jones, Founder American Dream Movement

A new movement is rising all across America to fight back. It was born among the teachers, students, firefighters and nurses of Wisconsin who took over their Capitol to stop Governor Walker?s power grab. Now it?s spreading as millions of other Americans?inspired by the events in Madison, Wisconsin?stand up to say ?No? to right-wing attacks on the middle class.

Van Jones called this new wave of energy the ?American Dream Movement.? It?s growing stronger by the day, and it?s not going away until Americans can find jobs, afford to go to college, retire with dignity, and secure a future for their children and their communities.
