Indigenous Dignity Day Oct. 13th San Antonio Tx.

When we have Marched and Rallied in the past we cryout "una gente sin fronteras " or no borders no nations no deportations. I say these things because of my indigenous blood ties and binds me to my mother as it does with all native people. What is being done today against the Mexican race is in violation not only of political laws but most important acainst natural laws . You cannot remove a people from their lands occupy them and then deny them entry onto their own ancestral home. Oct. 13th we will march and rally in recognition of our indigenous heritage and for our human rights.

I have been helping with Organizing groups of people that are opposed to the imprisonment of families and their children . This month of Sept. we are organizing for Freedom Walk 2 in Taylor TX. We will be doing this on the 29th. all that can make the trip to Taylor are welcome. The ACLU did get some basic and very needed concessions .

Scary Times

On June the 30th we confronted the Minutemen and the Border Watch Rascist groups. They were in San Antonio at the federal prosecutors office, Mr. John Sutton`s office to be precise. They were conducting a hate protest against Mr. Sutton for having prosecuted two rogue Border Patrol agents.These two Border agents shot a man in the back, for crossing the border without papers. They shot 15 rounds at him and when they apprehended him they violently assaulted him, beating him severely. They then did a cover up. Fortunately there are good Border agents, they testified against Mr. Cumpian and Mr. Ramos. Mr. John Sutton offered them a few months probation but they refused. I`m pretty sure they thought that they could shoot and beat up Mexicans and no one would care. They were wrong, what they did was and is a crime. Mr. Sutton did his job , he prosecuted the two criminals, that betrayed their oath to uphold the law. The Minutemen and Border Watch did what true hate mongering fascist do; they used the situation to galvanize confused people onto their side . The family members of the criminal Border agents gave testimony as to the innocence of their family members. The Minutemen And Border Watch are buying these Mexican-Americans, they have setup bank accounts and they petition for donations for the family members. Buying their loyalty. Using the anger of the family to recruit members into their fascist movement. I can tell it is getting scary it is so reminiscent of the Nazi`s of the 1930`s and 40`s. Their tactics are carbon copy of that evil and corrupt machinery that engulfed Europe in a Holocaust that almost wiped out the Jewish people off the face of this earth. We were there to say the truth about the two Border Agents regardless of their ethnicity, they violently violated the human rights of that man that they attempted to murder and if that wasn`t corrupt enough abuse of police authority they tried to cover it up by threats and coercion against there fellow Border Agents. The agents had to be given immunity from prosecution in order to be able to testify to the truth. These fascist hate groups in order to spread there ideology of fear, mistrust and hate against the Mexican people will do whatever, even call these two misguided Mexican-American Border Agent criminals their Hero Lawmen. Don`t be fooled we know that they are filled with nothing but loathing for all our people. Just as Hitler and his henchmen bid their time until they were in complete control before putting their ethnic cleansing into effect. The ovens still hold the essence of the Jewish people humanity within their walls. We will speak up for those that are unable to do so for themselves. When I am asked where were you when they came for your neighbor? I will answer by his side defending his human rights. Where will you stand in the end of the End Game?

Free the Children Coalition July 21st Hutto Prison Protest / Vigil

Protest Protest Protest Protest Protest Protest
Free the Children
June the 23rd we united and showed this government that we care about children all children. We said that imprisoning families with their children is not only evil hearted but outright criminal. We ask all that attended to contact their elected officials at local , state, and federal levels. Telephone calls, e- mails, faxes, even hard copy snailmail. We must oppose C.C.A , M.T. C. ,Wackenhut and all the greedy private prison corporations that are turning the land of the free into a prison nation that we the people are not ready to be led into concentration camps and will not sit idlly by, as children are being deprived of their innocence behind private prisons for profit. We of Free the Children Coalition are continuing to shine the light on C.C.A. and their vile money making prison in Taylor Tx. July 21st we will rally at Hutto Res. ctr. and hold another protest /vigil keeping our promise to keep on coming to Hutto until we shut it down. Those wishing to help call 210-396-9805

June 16th 2007 - The Minutemen descended onto Austin on the southside entrance to the Capitol steps and held a rally there. We went in protest to their rally. We refused to stay beyond the entrance gate and came within 30 or 40 feet of their speakers area. They had different speakers including the wife of an injured Border patrol Agent of Mexican descent as well as an ex- Border Agent giving testimonial, also a teacher out of the Houston area. Their approach at propaganda is not unique instead it is very similar to that used by different fascist organizations at the turn of the 20th century throughout Europe. They carried signs berating Mexico, also signs attacking government officials, they also planted American Flags throughout their staging area.They spoke of Homeland insecurity by Mexican invasion and of how this is a land of laws and that the Mexican is a criminal. I responded to that speech with how they are more heavily draped in ignorance than the flags that they wrap themselves in. I reminded them that the ones that invaded these lands were their ancestors a mere 150 years ago, and how their war hasn`t stopped, but now instead of hanging Mexicans resisting the invasions . They simply declare them foreignors on their own soil, illegals that should be tracked down, deported or imprisoned. I shouted to them that we could see through their racism and asked them why couldn't they see this as a Human issue born of necessity. They raised a sign that read Security crisis not work crisis. I yelled to them Fascim at work on our Capitol steps , the scapegoating of a race of people in order to galvanize a movement has been done in the past . Against the native peoples in order to commit horrible acts of inhumanity to make possible to populate the lands that the native people once called home with what this foundling government intended white settlers. Demonizing a people so as not to associate guilt to the acts of murder of children, the rape of women the removal of a race of people from there homelands is how this government began, this is its origin. The teacher spoke of how 72 different languages were spoken at the high school she teaches at, she went on to advocate for english only. They all cheered and held up a sign that read "If you can`t read this you don`t belong here". We all yelledout different quotes from "go back to England" ,"Your racsism is showing", "Colonialism is the root of your ignorance", and "Can`t you count 72 is more than one" . The dumbing down of our young through fear and hate mongers is a sad picture when painted by a supposed teacher in an accredited school system in our state of Texas. I will shorten my report by telling you that one of our sisters was arrested at the Capitol , Saturday June 16th for practicing peaceful civil disobedience. As the State Troopers were handcuffing Rebecca. I commented to them why they hadn`t taken the same measures with the group from the Minutemen that had purposely walked through the center of our group in an obvious attempt to provoke violence, the anglo trooper in charge said "I was turned away and didn`t see it" to which I replied " You mean you turned a blind eye". I made other comments to the black troopers about how this was close to June 19th Emancipation Day, and what Dr.King said of "How it is our obligation to break unjust laws through peaceful civil disobedience" and "How everything Hitler did in Nazi Germany was legal". His only comment was that she had been warned and now she was under arrest. I quickly got on my cell phone contacted the media and an attorney through another activist. Thanks Marcelo for being there in Solidarity. Genocide, Slavery, Prison Camps, Tortures, Rapes, Mutilations of Human beings can only happen if " We turn a blind eye and pretend we don`t see". Wake-up People. Or History will repeat itself. We live in a circle.
