Today was work

Today there was a lot of work done that I was proud of very proud of. I was very proud of myself that I stood up and spoke up for youth. I think that is my role. the how dare you of the world. I got tired you know that being a youth we get pushed around. I respect the people who have been in this movement pero sometimes canijo things get out of hand too out of hand. Bueno life is like that you have to learn how to deal with people and learn how to handle them well.

I think I spoke out of reason and following some principles that i didnt think about before about the immigrant rights movement and how things can get stronger. a companero asked about how do you think people can work together considering people come from different ideologies. I brought up the point that people need to hear the base and what the base is saying. We can then create a space for dialogue and discussion where both principles can work. This other crazy lady was saying that we shouldnt support the dream act cuz its a poverty draft bill the all or nothing.

Elvira Arellano was saying that the new sanctuary movement should support the dream act but that they want a bigger comprehensive immigration reform first no compromises. After speaking up about the need to hear what the base is saying before jumping to conclusions she changed her earlier statement

ill finish it later.....note to mari
