EDITOR'S NOTE: An interpreter did English to Spanish translation during the press conference. The audience questions (all of which were in Spanish), at the end, were translated to Attorney Pointer for his responses. This is a transcript of attorney Pointer's statement and answers to questions by the attendees. The press conference included words from Luis Gongora's family and presentation of a quilt to the family to show our love and solidarity towards them. Further coverage of this from Poor Magazine is forthcoming.

I love the sound of their laughter, their thick voices of different tongues. I love my people 365 days a year. I love the Filipino youth who stand up for their community. I love our generosity. I love how gracious we are while at the same time possess the fiercest fire when defending our community. The sun rises

For this demographic, being arrested with an ounce and/or not having money to pay a fine would immediately land them in jail.

Most of it was slightly bruised, some had very prominent sugar spots, but all of it was usable. The really mushy spots on the fruit went into smoothies with the rest of the fruit, except for avocados, tomatoes, and cactus pears (tuna).
