A desalambrar

Tal como lo dijera Daniel Viglietti y nos lo recordara Víctor Jara

Yo pregunto a los presentes
si no se han puesto a pensar
que esta tierra es de nosotros
y no del que tenga más.

Yo pregunto si en la tierra
nunca habrá pensado usted
que si las manos son nuestras
es nuestro lo que nos den.

A desalambrar, a desalambrar!
que la tierra es nuestra,
es tuya y de aquel,
de Pedro y María, de Juan y José.

Si molesto con mi canto
a alguien que no quiera oir
le aseguro que es un gringo
o un dueño de este país.

A desalambrar, a desalambrar!
que la tierra es nuestra,
es tuya y de aquel,
de Pedro y María, de Juan y José

Dear CSULB art students,

Over the last 2 semesters, I’ve started to realize that the art building I go to everyday of the week is, in fact, not a safe space. After anonymous leaked the identities of numerous KKK members yesterday, I was disgusted and decided to write “kill your local KKK member” in the stairwell. Only a day later, someone crossed out kill and wrote “forgive.” I am shocked and yet I really shouldn’t be. Last semester, I posted some Black Lives Matter posters which were quickly written on, torn down, and one even had coffee thrown on it. Like I said, don’t mistake this institution for a safe space.
