Article in "Common Dreams": "This Is How We Defend Immigrants From Trump"

"In his online manifesto, the El Paso shooter described a 'Hispanic invasion of Texas.' And in his discussions of the U.S.-Mexico border, Trump used the word 'invasion' at least two dozen times. That is an ideal word to signal to his followers that it is open season on immigrants."

"The strongest moral high ground is one that is steadfastly nonviolent."

Do not forget that the largest mass murderer in the world is the U.S. Government which continues to hold its guns on every country in the world that dares defy U.S. edicts. If the gun won't do because of other political problems than the boycott and sanctions do the job by wreaking havoc on the poor and working-class. To fight violence in America we must struggle for a revolutionary alternative to capitalism and imperialism.
