The Only Solution To The Refugee Crisis Is Revolution!

Unión del Barrio condena todos los actos violentos perpetrados contra los refugiados centroamericanos, ya sea que tengan lugar en la frontera de EE. UU./México o en la frontera sur de México. La violencia trumpista fascista de las milicias de derecha en Nuevo México es el primo del norte de la violencia neocolonial atrasada y auto-odiosa […]

Sin La Mujer No Hay Revolución: “We will fight until every imposed border, wall, cage, and cell is dismantled…”

One cannot turn on the television or read online news without hearing about Venezuela. Mainstream feminist organizations and media outlets are standing with the Trump administration in calling out the economic situation in Venezuela by blaming democratically-elected President Maduro as the cause of the economic crisis, and supporting the installation of US puppet Juan Guaidó. When […]

Shut The Whole Damn Thing Down!

The more trouble Trump gets into, the more intense his attacks are against our raza communities. All this mess about “border wall funding” and the “government shut down” is only to distract from the very serious legal trouble that Donald Trump and his accomplices find themselves in. The same thing was done with the refugee […]

The Shameless Dishonesty of US Narco-Imperialism: A Timeline Of Neoliberal Death-Mongering

Deception, war, criminality, and terrorism have been used as instruments of empire for hundreds of years. US imperialism has not been an exception, fomenting political chaos and death across the globe, especially in the decades following World War II. Yet, the shamelessly ahistorical nature of trumpista fascism makes it too easy to forget the origins […]

During February of 2017, Trumpistas Sent Our Communities A Clear Message Of What They Have In Mind For Us

The real question is, what are we going to do about it? Among the generalized political division and increasing hatred that Trump has fomented during his first weeks as president, it takes a little work to discern what is now clearly a pattern of white nationalist aggression that has been unleashed against our communities. Indeed, […]

1994-2016: 22 Years of Operation Gatekeeper

In 1994, William Jefferson Clinton activated a new border enforcement policy, Operation Gatekeeper, that was designed to push people without papers away from large cities, to instead cross the border in the more dangerous and remote mountains and deserts of California and Arizona. Since 1994, Operation Gatekeeper and similar policies in New Mexico and Texas, […]
