We’ve been writing about the Tequila Party Concert and CD launch to be held in Phoenix this Friday.
Date: Friday, April 5, 2013
Time: 7:00 pm
The Tequila Party CD and our concert is a political expression via art and music to push for fixing the broken immigration system. Artists contributing to this cause believe in a humane and legal immigration plan. We support the DREAM Act and more importantly, we believe in Mexican-American / Chicano / Latin empowerment. We know that leadership must arise from the ethnic community (via the Mexican-Americans) who have been most hurt and most affected. It is a fact that the majority of those who are being deported are of Mexican descent. Mexican-Americans are a rising population muscle and they account for almost 70% of the Latino population pie. It is time to stand firm against what politicians in Arizona refer to as “Operation Wetback.” It is time to support and defend those who are afraid to defend themselves.
That said, we are also selling t-shirts that depict bully Sheriff Joe Arpaio as the devil or el diablo in revolutionary red (see below image). The t-shirt design was created by the fine artist El Moises — an artist of Arizona. The State of Arizona may try to bring our spirits down — but it is through adversity that makes us work harder and with fervor. Politicians may try to eliminate Chicano or Ethnic Studies and our history, but that history will be sought out and live in our hearts forever.
