Here are some photos of signs from stores closed today for día sin Mexicanos. The event intended to show lazy Americans how much they rely on “immigrants” to provide for their basic needs, even though everyone on this continent EXCEPT latinos is an immigrant, and an illegal one at that according to 370 broken treaties with native peoples.
Willow St was dead as a graveyard. I’m still looking for real stories and evidence of how other communities fared; it’s hard to think on the effectiveness of Calle Willow’s solidarity gesture when one considers that the clientele is largely latino there. If the business owners couldn’t convince the people who are the problem –the white people on the other Willow St beyond highway 87 –at least they had a day to come together and plot out what it all means in a system that relies on racism to keep the working classes down and thereby also the prices of unnecessary consumer goods.
Apparently “dozens” of restaurants closed in the North American heartland. Tatiana Sanchez of the hopelessly incompetent Mercury News tried to do the story justice in today’s paper. No word yet on if Driscolls or Giant or Well-Pict or Dole suffered, who are massively to blame for any inducement people may have to come to California illegally, and also as guilty of starting the current heroin epidemic in the strawberry fields. Hope someone got the point!
Once again some comics from a never-finished zine circa 2014. I think the only ones I had left to do were the meat and the produce but whatever.
In order to not hit the size limits, here are all 3 pages in separate images. Grocery stores fill me full of dread to this day, even Staff of Life in Santa Cruz –my ideal store –and the comics elaborate the dark currents running under your do-gooder Whole Foods bullshit life. I also have a really hard time reading menus, as the items are never different enough from each other to catch my eye.
Here’s page 2

Watch this. At one point it was “the most eroded place on Earth” and had been the “Green Wall of China.”
Loess soil covers only about 10% of the land but is a vector for enormous amounts of all agricultural history, as well as forest development before that. When it erodes down into waterways, we’re screwed! Can it be fixed?
Note: Way to go Maui!!! While this is a GREAT step forward in eradicating Round-up from Maui, unfortunately there’s no mention here of a complete ban. Meaning homeowners, business’s and agriculture will still be drenching the island in toxins. But nonetheless, it’s a first step. Here on the Big Island, we’re fighting an uphill battle […]
