The Long Black Gate - La Frontera
The long black gate spawned from a visit to my friend Cha~Cha of La Semilla Childcare Collective, for the first time in El Paso Tex.
On the third day of my visit, I noticed numerous spots of smoke on the Mexican side of the border fence. She shared that the spots of smoke, were just another sign of the violence and border fascism along the border.
I learned that the 600 Million dollars Obama signed, were used to build the fence and increase the policing of the border people in Juarez and El Paso. From that moment and throughout my visit I did not stop writing about what I saw, smelt, felt, and thought about in the lone star state.
