The character of the bike

Saul Perman is a well-known character from the streets of Santa Fe. Activist of “La Causa”, carries out a peaceful and optimistic militancy.

Stories of people

In the central streets of  Santa Fe,  during the evenings, a megaphone repeats  catchy amounts  . When the sound begins to approach, the particular character of Saul Perman emerges. On board his  bike , with the megaphone hanging, he flames a white flag and wears a bib. With a helmet, glasses, gray beard and gesturing to the rhythm of his music, Saul exercises an   optimistic militancy . When you ask him how he is, he says, “All right. Better than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow. Positive thinking is the axis.”

His history of militancy has a source of crisis. After overcoming a severe disease, which took away much of his mobility ( psoriatic arthritis ), his mother died after suffering a painful osteoarthritis. After discovering how beneficial human organisms can result in modifying  eating habits , he did not hesitate to go out to transmit that message. To convey it  with commitment, every day . So was born “La Causa”, which first was the name he put to his  fanpage  (on Instagram also follow it thousands) about  conscious feeding . As his mission became known, he felt that there were many other causes to communicate and, every few months, changes the approach to a political,  spiritual , food, etc. But always with the same spirit: healthy life, optimism and, in the end of the day, the   pursuit of happiness .  

 Positive philosophy 

Outside of the Cause, this character leads a normal life.  Vegan , divorced and traveller, labura about that more than three decades ago. “But, with the recognition that my militancy had this last time, I asked my customers if they didn't mind me entering their shops with my breast. Everyone accepted without inconvenience. So I keep transmitting my message when I'm working.”

  Songs  arise  spontaneously. He says that when he gets up, the messages come to him: “I am, I am, we are light, we are love.”

Of course, not all are compliments when Saul passes the bike. Some laugh, mock or even insult him. “It's everyone's world and that's fine,” says the activist. “These are personal processes. We are in  chaotic moments  where all paradigms fell and everyone is looking for how to stand and find their own way to the  happiness . Today is a moment of maximum darkness, crisis, but it is not terminal, but of growth. It's evolutionary. From here arises the light that will lift us all up.  Positive thinking wins.”
