AL MEDIO DIA
LUNES, MAYO 26, 2014
Un grupo de simpatizantes caminar el sendero migratorio entre Sasabe, Sonora, México, y Tucson, Arizona a partir del Memorial Day. Mientras que el grupo tomará una ruta más fácil con vehículos de apoyo completos con agua y comida, los migrantes hablan de tomar este paseo y apenas sobreviven.
El grupo quiere honrar migrantes que dieron un paso al desierto en la aventura de su vida y nunca se supo de él. Los migrantes perdidos se Forgotton principalmente en el Memorial Day, el día en que Estados Unidos rinde tributo es héroes, sin embargo, es a través del sudor de la próxima generación de estadounidenses que nuestro país ha crecido fuerte.
Francisco Herrera canta con su corazón acerca de la difícil situación de los trabajadores migrantes. Por favor, únase a nosotros para un gran espectáculo con Francisco, así como una inverview en directo desde la frontera de uno de los caminantes.
Para aquellos que están fuera de la zona, el programa se puede escuchar aquí.
Lunes, al Medio Dia
A group of well wishers walk the migrant trail between Sasabe, Sonora, Mexico, and Tucson, Arizona starting Memorial Day. While the group will take an easier route with full support vehicles, migrants tell of taking this walk and barely surviving.
The group wishes to honor migrants who stepped off into the desert for an adventure of their lives and were never heard from again. The lost migrants are mostly forgotton on Memorial Day, a day when America honors it’s heros, yet it is through the sweat of this next generation of Americans our country has grown strong.

I spent most of this last year as a volunteer trying to help families find their lost loved ones who disappeared on an historic sailboat, the Nina, which disappeared on June 4th,2013. One of those people, Evi Nemeth from Colorado, is one of the people who make all of this internet stuff possible, being a legend in developing and teaching the Linux computer system. None of the sailors were wealthy, and a few were exceptionally humble of means.

I see little difference between the Nina sailors and the thousands of migrants who disappear in the desert every year. At the heart of it all are the hearts and minds of the loved ones who want to know the fate of their fathers, mothers, sons and daughters, who stepped into the frontier to never be heard from again.
In a few cases, the adventurers are heard from again, when their remains are found. Nothing is as difficult for friends and relatives to accept than a person who steps into danger and disappears. At least finding the remains gives closure, but presents the most heart wrenching challenges for the people our adventurers leave behind. In the case of the Nina sailors, they have yet to be heard from, and the authorities who supposedly are responsible for finding those are lost, refuse to continue the search.
The Migrant Walk on the migrant trail between Mexico and the U.S. is a way to honor lost migrants, and to honor all people who are lost in their process of searching for something more. In each case, they represent incredible bravery and the human spirit to have the best life possible, and in many cases, to convey that life to their families.
Some people say there is a world of difference between the Nina sailors and migrants who disappear into the desert. To those people I suggest, they look deep into their hearts and imagine what it is like for the light of your life to disappear. It does not matter who they are or where they came from. Each life is as valuable to the survivors as another, and no life is more valuable than another It only matters that human beings are lost and society is turning a blind eye to it’s duty to find them.
Walkers on the Migrant Trail will step off on Monday, May 26th, and hike 75 miles including crossing the border. They don’t pretend to hike under the same conditions most immigrants face. Instead, they work to bring awareness to the plight of migrants who are risking their lives to feed their families. Un Dia Sin Fronteras supports the work of the Migrant Trail campaign and the many people who have taken the walk in order to bring the plight of migrants to the attention of the world.

Un Dia Sin Fronteras
As the protests heated up, the government suspended press rights and free speech, including the basic right of assemblage. Currently, some students remain unaccounted for while others report torture and bad treatment on the part of the government. At least one boy claims to have been sodomized by authorities.
The Maduro government pins the blame on the protesters. Authorities say they found a horde of weapons in the student camps, including homemade grenades and incendiary devices. During the raids, a police officer was killed and a second wounded. The government blames the students and the students question who is to blame. The number of dead on both sides is pegged at 42, though murder and assault occur on a regular basis in Caracas, Venezuela. The House Foreign Affairs Committee approved the measure to sanction people who enjoy the liberty of America while suppressing the voices of citizens in Venezuela.
It is tragic the people of Venezuela must face injustice in this manner! To have their own national guard, the GNP, abuse them! This video shows the GNP going into a barrio and abducting a woman. They drag her to the waiting paddy wagon, beating her along the way.
If you have video, audio or photographs from Venezuela or any compelling story or information, send it to us and we will print it! We give a voice to the voiceless!
