We need a Spanish-language version for Perú, Uruguay, and elsewhere.

It could start with the Wikipedia page written by the children of
Palestina, Perú, and the documentary about it.
https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestina_%28Per%C3%BA%29 I contributed
information on the documentary to the English version. There are also
French, Estonian, and Macedonian translations, which I was pleased to
see all included the section on the
Documentary/Documentaire/Dokumentaalfilm/Документарец, including the
links I provided.

It all comes under Doug Engelbart's notion of Augmenting Human
Intelligence through tools that multiply the effect of thought many
times over.
