Former President Bill Clinton in 1999 offered all members of the F.A.L.N. clemency on the condition that they renounce violent terrorism, but López Rivera was the only one to refuse. López Rivera refuses to call himself a terrorist, however. "I do not have blood on my hands, and that’s why I cannot be a terrorist," he said after he was released on May 17. Police groups were among the first to pull out of the parade, with the NYPD and the NYPD's Hispanic Society announcing their intention to boycott. The FDNY officers' union and FDNY Hispanic Society on Tuesday announced the same. Other major corporations and parade mainstays including the New York Yankees, AT&T and JetBlue will also boycott the parade. Latin-American food giant Goya Foods also has pulled its sponsorship, but wouldn't attribute the decision to the López Rivera invite. But Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio still plans to attend the parade.

Taken star Liam Neeson has signed on to star in a fresh, action-packed film titled Retribution for Studiocanal, The Picture Company and Ombra Films. The movie, a remake of the Spanish thriller El Desconocido, follows the story of a successful Wall Street executive who discovers on his way to work that a bomb has been planted in his car by an unknown assailant. Along with his family — who are in the car with him at the time — the man is forced to follow a series of orders throughout the day or else the bomb will be detonated (via Deadline). The original was compared to Speed and got eight Goya Awards nominations when it was released in Spain in 2015. Filming for the remake is set to start in the Fall, from a script penned by Chris Salmanpour and Andrew Baldwin. — AFP Relaxnews

By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment) | India's announcement that it wants to have its automobile fleet go completely electric by 2030 is a bigger deal than it seems on the surface, if in fact the government follows through. Power Minister Piyush Goya said Tuesday at the Confederation of Indian Industry, We are going to introduce electric vehicles in a very big way. We are going to make electric vehicles self- sufficient like UJALA. The idea is that by 2030, not a single petrol or diesel car should be sold in the country, Goya also said that the Indian government would be willing to subsidize electric automobiles as an infant industry, just as it had the Maruti car, which now is profitable. The government is driven by several considerations. First, India is facing an extremely serious urban pollution problem. When I was there last year the mayor of New Delhi made a rule that cars even-numbered license plates had to alternate day by day with those with odd-numbered plates, to cut down on traffic and deadly emissions.

Franco PagettiVII for TIME U.S. soldiers arrest a group of suspected Madhi Army members, including this man, in the Shi'te district of Shaab, Baghdad, Iraq, May 28, 2007. The men were accused of kidnapping and killing a Sunni man. These tensions are explained through commentary on two of the thousands of pictures he produced over the course of six years. The first shows an Iraqi man kneeling against a wall in his home, surrounded by American soldiers holding him at gunpoint. Reminiscent of Goyas painting The Third of May 1808 in which captives are facing a firing squad the image convey the violence of the moment, while the guns flashlight resemble a theater spotlight, giving it a surreal feel. In the documentary, Pagetti muses about what the photograph reveals about who the servicemen or what the firearms holds power, while Farhan considers what it says about the deliberate targeting of able-bodied adult men.

Francisco Goya is the most important Spanish artist of the late 18th and early 19th century. In 1793, Goya, then 46, came down with a severe, undiagnosed illness. His hearing never returned. Now, a hearing expert has developed a diagnosis. She thinks Goya likely suffered from an autoimmune disease.

What began more than a century ago as one man's passion for all things Spanish, has become the world's largest collection of Hispanic art outside Spain -- and now part of it is going on display in the country for the first time. Masterpieces from the 18,000-work collection founded by American philanthropist Archer Milton Huntington go on display at Madrid's Prado Museum from Tuesday. The exhibit opens with a portrait of the collector himself, painted in the 1920s when he was in his 50s, wearing a thin moustache and reserved air that belied an obsession nourished since childhood for the literature and art of Spain and its imperial lands. The masterpieces on display range from paintings by Goya, Velazquez and Murillo, some restored by the Prado ahead of the show, to a "Pieta" by El Greco. One unique item harkens back to Spain's powerful empire days of global exploration: a map of the world made in Sevilla by Giovanni Vespucci -- nephew to explorer Amerigo Vespucci -- in 1526.

Even knowing the circumstances of this crime, I find Grozny’s expression deeply moving. To my mind, it seems like a Realist take on the Goya paintingSaturn Devouring His Son’ – the same blank expression, the same desperation, the same destruction of one’s young. It also creates something which often features in horrorsympathy for the monster, regardless of their deeds. This disturbing image has shocked many through the years; not least, in 1913, when Grozny’s face was badly slashed by a man called Abram Abramovich Balashov. Balashov was removed from the scene shouting, “Enough blood! Down with blood!”

Not everyone believes that the return of migrants is a bad thing, however. San Salvador Mayor Nayib Bukele says those who dared to leave are the kinds of people El Salvador could benefit from creating wealth at home. People that immigrate are dreamers, strong, entrepreneurs, people that want to succeed, people that are willing to go through a desert, to risk their lives, to be deported, to work double shifts, he told TIME. Imagine those people working here, making our country produce more. Whatever politicians in San Salvador or Washington say though, many people keep heading north on the migrant trail. At the San Salvador bus station, a packed transport headed to Mexico, from where most passengers hoped to travel onto the United States. Ernesto Goya, 35, said he planned to reach Virginia for a construction job, taking his wife and three children with him.

Painting women as the major characters and catalyst for change. Painting women with admiration and respect. Be the voice of the voiceless. Shine a light in this darkness. Using art to preserve our ideals and beauty of humanity in spite of this whirlwind of negativity that has been unleashed and condoned. I think of artists like Goya who lived in turbulent times and documented them anyway. ― Sylvia Maier , painter 10. Marilyn Minter Not all artists are politically minded, and they dont have to be, I wouldnt want to see a lot of bad illustrations. But for those who are politically engaged, its often when they do their best work. Keith Haring was a product of Ronald Reagan (who wouldnt even say the word AIDS). In my experience, great art emerges from the marginalized and the angry. No one is saying it better than Jerry Saltz.
