Like thousands of people, I have worked, cultivated and planted seeds, never to see or enjoy the fruits of our labor. We have made and cleaned the most beautiful gardens that I have seen in my life in the mountains of Berkeley for people with money. Earning $10 an hour, we have built and managed houses with immense beauty, only to never see them again.
Climate Change is Mama Earth in pain…Homefulness is Climate Healing...Gratitude and love to you all for helping us get this far Please help us take the next humble step towards self-determined,landless peoples liberation with your Revolutionary Donations
When landless, indigenous, concrete jungle survivor, trauma-filled, broken yet angry and active, Po' peoples of color revolutionaries grow a garden, it takes a special recipe.....
-Begin wit some healing greens-
-fourteen cups of tears from loss and pain and sorrow and borders and eviction and profiling and incarceration,
-some fresh cilantro,
-four quarts of youth warrior love, some carrots,
