Pancho Dela Luna

It didn't require great character at all / we had a shred of necessary courage / but fundamentally it was a matter of taste / Yes taste / in which there are fibers of soul the cartilage of conscience / Yes taste / that commands us to get out to make a wry face draw out a sneer / even if for this the precious capital of the body the head / must fall
- Zbigniew Herbert

DELANO MANONGS tells the oft-overlooked story of how Filipino leader Larry Itliong and the thousands of Filipino farmworkers rallied with their Chicano comrades to form the United Farm Workers.

This is Yousef al-Shawamrah, aged 14. Last week, Israeli soldiers shot him with live ammunition in the back and hip near his village in the West Bank.
The child had gone to forage for wild thistle, used in cooking, with two friends aged 12 and 17.
After the Israeli soldiers, wearing black face masks, shot and killed Yousef, they came for his two friends.
The surviving boys were handcuffed, blindfolded and taken to a nearby Israeli settlement, where they were beaten after failing to respond to questions posed in Hebrew, which neither speaks.
This is what it means to be Palestinian living under Israeli occupation.

“Human trafficking is modern day slavery, it is the worst fears of a civilized people brought to light: The dehumanizing of our brothers and sisters, the commodification of a people. In any iteration it is a blight on the soul of a people and nation, one that is not easily removed. But, when the victims are innocent children, children given over to be abused, degraded, and treated like sex toys for amusement because of the powerlessness of a country to protect them, the stench of these acts linger, it festers and erodes the fabric of a society, unless something is done we face, not only the irrevocable stain of these acts, but the very loss of our collective soul.” Filipino Slavery in the Digital Age: Human Trafficking, Prostitution, and Cybercrime by http://iwriteasiwrite.tumblr.com/
