What we sow in spring
we shall reap at harvest time.
What are refugees
if not the fruit of our crimes?
The harvest of our empire.
I highly recommend reading the book Harvest of Empire: The History of Latinos in America by Juan Gonzalez (of Democracy Now!) The book covers the reasons why so many folks have been fleeing Central & South America & the Caribbean for so long. I’ll give you a hint, it has something to do with American tax dollars funding coups & supporting dictatorships over democracy in the name of capitalism. The book was also made into a film which I’ve yet to see, but I’m sure it’s just as good.
