My (Un)Documented Life

移民関係のニュースをのせているサイトを発見。

https://mydocumentedlife.org/

とんでもないのが大統領に選出されてしまっていらい、NYでヘイトクライムが急増しているようです。電車のなかや道路にかぎ十字の落書きがあったり、学校ではヒスパニックの子らに「壁をつくる」といういじめっ子がでてきたり。ヒトラーがユダヤ人を迫害しはじめたときも、こんな感じだったんじゃないかと思える。ささいなことから、だんだんムスリムの移民を排除していく気配が足音たてて近づいている。

この移民向け情報サイトは優秀。非合法移民でも受けられる奨学金や受け入れてくれる大学とか、とにかく教育をつけさせようというのか、そういう情報がいっぱい。それにもし強制送還や移民局に摘発されるようなことがあったら、どうやって対処するかとか、どの弁護士がいいかとかも。こういう情報、すごく助かるよ、ほんとに。

Consumerism vs. Activism

Food Justice has been hijacked. It has been taken over by big agro-industry to appeal to a upper middle class to make bank. Companies like Walmart, which supplies the most amount organic food to consumers in the U.S., are cashing in on the privilege of changing one’s consumer buying options. 171 more words

Activism

What is Food Justice?

The food justice movement is here to defend systematically impoverished communities where food deserts make inexpensive and healthy food inaccessible.

Food justice has two-main forms: upper-middle class consumerism and reforming huge agro-industry, and initiatives linked to systematically impoverished/oppressed communities such as community gardens and farm-to-school programs. 328 more words

My Peaceful Protest

Many of us — especially outside of big cities — do not have a direct experience of protest.

Empowerment

Day 1

I am sitting here writing a blog, something I never thought I would do, after a lot of deep analysis about some recent issues. If you know me then it is no shock that I was deeply analyzing something prior to taking action. 326 more words
