Los Caminos De La Vida

March 8, 2016

One of the most powerful and emotional parts of Sunday’s march is when we serenated the inmates with this song. I cried when seeing the inmates waiving at us.

El domingo pasado, en Los Angeles, se organizo la marcha por la mujeres mas larga en la nacion.

La parte que me emociono mas fue cuando le dimos una serenata a los que estaban detenidos. Esta cancion me hizo llorar.

 

 

The Largest Women’s Day March in the Nation

March 8, 2016

This past Sunday, Af3rm and several organizations led the largest women’s day march in the nation.

One of my favorite moments of the march is when the demonstrators march underneath the bridge and started chanting, “Whose Streets? Our Streets!”

In no particular order, here they are:

Comandanta Ramona

Suheir Hammad

Violeta Parra

Miriam Makeba

Mercedes Sosa

Wangari Maathai

Mother Teresa

Dorothy Day

Frida Kahlo

Anita Tijoux

Joan Baez

Las Jilguerillas

Julieta Venegas

Tracy Chapman
