    This is part of the ongoing SamirVive multimedia project extending solidarity with the community of activist and journalist Samir Flores and the Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional (EZLN) in demand of justice for our dead, disappeared, and imprisoned.

    The SamirVive multimedia project is a room within the Museum of Care (https://museum.care).

    The music weaves together Samir’s own words from his last interview about defending his community along with an explanation of the meaning of the Dia de los Muertos alter and a community member’s explanation of what his death means to them.

    Thank you to M. Heriv for the image. Thank you to those who provided their voice for the spoken word as well as the audio from "PAPANTLA Altares Vive Ninín 2013" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?t=97&v=5WeKQzAkBMA) and "Samir Flores a un año de su asesinato" (http://vimeo.com/393599725).

    Riot (feat. Killer Mike, Ella Baker, Martin Luther King)

    Riot (feat. Killer Mike, Ella Baker, Martin Luther King)

    Killer Mike's words after death of George Floyd inspired me. Sadly, this cycle has been going on for a long time and so the words of Ella Baker and Martin Luther King are also just as relevant today as they were 50+ years ago.

    If you feel moved by this music...
    ...share this with a friend to start a conversation
    ...educate yourself more (Michelle Alexander's reading list: www.nytimes.com/2020/06/08/opinion/george-floyd-protests-race.html)
    ...listen to perspectives other than your own
    ...empathize with others' pain
    ...protest in the street (while safely wearing a COVID-19 mask)
    ...talk with your friends
    ...call your representatives
    ...create your own artistic works
    ...organize in your own community
    ...connect this movement with others that fight for life and dignity
    ...vote for the least worse candidates (e.g. the ones that are more likely to respond positively to protests' demands)
    ...donate to help the movement & the protesters:
