1. But I ask you, and I always ask rich intellectual people that like to talk about Palestine, I always ask them if someone came inside your home and you asked them why are you here, they respond by saying ‘because in the scripture that God gave to me He said this house belongs to me’. You would say no get out of my house. But they ignore you and go on to kill your father, your brother, they kill your mother, they kill your uncle they kill everyone except the children and they stay in the house. And those children that they did not kill even though they cannot get back into their house every time those children pass by that house they pick up a stone and throw it at that house. Now I would ask you are those children criminals? If those children if that’s all they can do is throw rocks at the people that stoled their house would those children be criminals? The person said ‘no that is a very pathetic situation’ I said that is the condition of Palestine. There is nothing but children throwing stones and facing tanks, but that’s all they can do. And I will always say that if these children have rocks to throw and the heart to face tanks they must face the tanks and they must continue to throw stones. Because that is an act of honor, and if there are no more men to throw stones to carry on the honor of these people then the children they must continue to throw stones.

    Images of the Border Crisis in the United States.
    AATTP

    An estimated 52,000 unaccompanied children have entered the United States from Central America since October. President Barack Obama has asked Congress for $3.7B to improve security along the border, provide better housing for the undocumented immigrants while in custody and to speed up the deportation process. 

    Despite the horrible conditions these children are attempting to escape, conditions that include extreme poverty and violence, the White House has said that “they expect most will ultimately be repatriated,” despite the fact that about 60% of children coming over from Central America are eligible for some kind of humanitarian protection, according to a report from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

    While the problem before us must be handled immediately, it cannot be addressed without first examining it’s root causes. While our American elected officials and media would like to make us all believe that this issue is unrelated to American behavior and that it is simply the result of the inability of Central American countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to protect their borders and reduce through policing their crime the truth is quite the opposite. This immigration issue that the United States is currently facing is the result of American economic and military intervention in Central America.

    For decades the United States has toppled governments in Central America, fueled civil wars and most recently has escalated the War on Drugs within countries in Central America. The connection between the United States foreign policy and it’s current immigration problem cannot be ignored, every action has an effect and due to the actions taken by the United States in the past, we today see families from all over Central America attempt to flee the violence that the United States was instrumental in creating.

Police reform now. Intimidation and instigation are not perks of the job.

  8. Artists are politicians because art is political by nature, it is for the many. Sothe moment you put your art on a stage you are a politician of culture. You influence, you can change, you can help, you are a voice representing and selling an idea. You are powerful.
