i’ve been watchin videos of Hugo Chavez this evening and he has inspired me to push the struggle forward.
questions i ask: what gives me strength? the power of hope. the power of dignity. the power of struggle. the warriors who stood in the face of evil and said no. resistance by the wretched of the earth. the love of the most inflicted. the hope of the most impoverished. the one who stands up against the hegemony of oppression and says no. the self thinkers. the self doers. the actualizers of freedom. inspiration from the depths of love. the humility of the needy. the punished. the criminalized. the robbed. the deceived. the backstabbed. absolute injustice is impossible as long as the human spirit pours its determination to be free from the chains of the most arrogant. i lay the seeds, we lay the seeds, so they can bloom to bright pedals of liberation, peace, and justice. Pa’ Lante la lucha sigue con fuerza, Pa ’ Lante!

Today we would like to remember Hugo Rafael Chavez Frais, who transitioned on this day last year.
Chavez stood as a leader of Latin America against U.S. imperialism and capitalism and provided for poor and working class people of color not only in Venezuela but around the world, such as donating free oil to poor families in the South Bronx. He also sparked a movement in South America to unite against U.S hegemony on a platform of socialism.
We are in solidarity with the Venezuelan people defending their democratically elected government.
REST IN POWER CHAVEZ! HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!
