We support the preservation of El Paso's oldest historic neighborhood! This morning bulldozers illegally initiated the demolition of five buildings in the oldest neighborhood in El Paso, which is also known as barrio Duranguito located in the U.S.-México border. The besieged Mexican-American community of more than 150 primarily elderly residents and allies has been fighting the city of El Paso to stop the destruction of their neighborhood for the construction of a sports arena. The city has made every efforts to impose this development despite widespread opposition to the plan. Yesterday, residents and their legal team won a major victory in gaining an indefinite injunction against the demolition of 8 historic buildings recommended for historic national landmark designation. This victory was possible in spite of the city's attempts to circumvent the legal process. A mass demonstration of 200 people resulted in the expelling of bulldozers from the barrio. However, this morning at 7:38 a.m. bulldozers violated the injunction by illegally initiating partial demolitions each of the buildings​ with Tonita still living inside her apartment​. We believe this is an effort to make them structurally unsound and so the city can call for the total demolition of the buildings. Attorney's are currently filing contempt of court charges against the City of El Paso for these actions. For more information please call Dr. David Romo 915 630-950.

Embrace the Chaos, our second studio release, came out on Sept 11 2001. We were in Detroit about to cross the border into Canada. Needless to say, those shows were canceled. We drove straight home for 3 days on the bus. At the time many bands were cancelling their show but we decided to keep our Sept 24 show at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC blocks for where the World Trade Center was. #ourgriefisnotacryforwar #ozomatli #911 #embracethechaos

Dolores

Her career as an activist began alongside Cesar Chavez and, at age 87, Dolores Huerta continues to advocate for the common good. See the film that explains her influence, impact — and why you may have never heard her name before. Dolores comes to theaters across the U.S. this fall. doloresthemovie.com/screenings

This Saturday Sept 9 at the Landmark's Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles, El Gavachillo will be introducing this pre-screening of the Dolores! It is super important, especially in these times, to tell her story. Every important activist movement has an unsung hero. Go check it out! #doloreshuerta Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Cesar Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. See Dolores— in theaters beginning Sept. 1. https://www.facebook.com/doloresthemovie/videos/1915185045410601

Right on Migs! #Repost @themigmartinez ・・・ #Charlottesville VA is and will always be my second home. I moved there with my parents at the age of nine. I grew up there, I have friends and family there. If you ask me, it's a great beautiful and peaceful place. It once was the number one place to live in the U.S. • Unfortunately at the moment C'Ville is making the news for the wrong reasons. It's making the news because of complete fear and ignorance. Not by the residents of that incredible town, but from insecure small minded outsiders who believe that they are better because they have a lighter skin color. • This photograph is a work in progress. It's a collaboration between Ozomatli and myself. I'm posting this now because right now to me, this speaks volumes. I didn't want to post a pic of some racists idiots. I rather post a pic of my brother Asdru and words of encouragement. • I'll be there today #Cville, front lines ✊🏽 • #AnotherMiGportrait #FuckHate #FuckRacism #KendallJennerComedownToCharlottesvilleWithYourPepsiCan #HowIviewTheWorldAroundMe #WashingtonDC #TheMiGmartinez #CañeMex #aCreativeDC #igDC #PeakDesign #Ozomatli #Virginia
