fat or muscle, that is the question.
fat is the answer
We gotta prevent Qatar 2022 (FIFA World Cup) from happening.
Where do we start?
We urge you to reflect on whom, in the struggle for your own rights and your own freedoms, you exclude and whose humanity you impinge. We call on you to stop promoting that “good immigrant” assimilationist narrative and we call on you to apologize for using the crisis of Central American children at the border as an opportunity to promote your own image. We invite you to come to California, to join us in our advocacy and service to community. We want you to see how the work that has laid out the platform for you to be able to go around and parade around this nation, and get arrested, is built.
This is an open letter written by myself and a good friend addressing Mr. Vargas’ position in the immigrant rights movement and the serious need for him, along with us, to stop giving weight to dangerous assimilationist narratives with our stories and with our work.
Letters like this one don’t really help. Sympathy is almost a necessity. Let’s not forget that passing immigration reform depends entirely in a group of politicians.
Let’s try to stay away from extremes. Both left and right.
