<> What an amazing day yesterday was! Millions of people in the street. May Day redemption.
. An Aztlan Intifada.
. (Aztlan is a Nauatl word that refers to the region of the U.S. Southwest that was stolen from Mexico after the Mexican American War. To Chicanos: occupied American. Intifada is Arabic. It literally means to shake off. It also means uprising, especially in reference to an occupation.)
I was able to participate in the tail end of the march via an old wheelchair, with Leon pushing me. I really need a scooter or a decent wheel chair (but the indignities of insurance approval for a wheel chair is another story.)
. Andy marched both marches, exhausted when we met up with him toward the end of the day.
. I painted my car using a product called glass chalk. I haven’t figured out how to get it off the windows yet. I’ll save that for tomorrow.
. Peace with justice,
. From occupied Aztlan
Justicia para todos Justice for all
