Hell has indeed frozen over, no more Three Sonorans

Well folks, looks like my time writing about Arizona 2010 has come to an end. Since I began around the end of June, I have written 842 articles. That’s a nice number, 2 cubed, 2 squared, and 2. Racism in this state went to the very end, 12/31/2010, with HB2281, the Ethnic Studies ban taking effect today. Tomorrow will be 1/1/11. It was a super hot summer, and politics was even more heated. After Healthcare Insurance Reform, which required the first black President and the first woman Speaker of the House to finally pass, madness in this country went out […]

Tucson Ethnic Studies student and future civil-rights leader: Angelica Penaran

cropped-TSON.jpg

Angelica Peñaran is a senior at Tucson High School. She is an Ethnic Studies student. She has just been accepted to the University of Arizona next year and plans to study Anthropology and History. I first met Angelica and Silvia a few months ago when the HB2281 lawsuit was being filed on behalf of the 11 teachers. They both organized a march, from Palo Verde High on the east side to Cholla on the base of A mountain on the west side. Angelica and Silvia organize a 13-mile march for Ethnic Studies Angelica and Silvia work as a team to […]

Tom Horne will wait until Monday to pull the trigger on TUSD Ethnic Studies

cropped-TSON.jpg

I had to listen to Tom Horne’s voice for 15 minutes only to hear him not talk about Ethnic Studies. Great journalism NPR or rather WTF? This whole KJZZ interview had to be staged. How on earth could NPR seriously not ask Horne about HB2281, which takes effect today? So it appears Tom Horne will wait until Monday, right before he becomes Attorney General, to pull the trigger and find TUSD in non-compliance. If he acted today, perhaps Terry Goddard would have acted in response. Perhaps not, but he surely cannot act when he is no longer in office. John […]

When will Tom Horne do it, today or Monday?

cropped-TSON.jpg

Canadian-born immigrant Tom Horne becomes Attorney General Monday at noon. HB2281 is now in effect in Arizona. It is the law of the land. He is having a press conference that morning. Rumor is that is when he will declare TUSD in non-compliance with HB2281, a law that the TUSD board in Tucson, home of the UA, is caving in to, letting the land of the Sun Devils beat us once again. Weak. That whole “local control” that the TEA Party and libertarians love is just a myth. Big brother should rule over us from afar. Phoenix knows what is […]

TUSD: Adelita Grijalva agrees to fully comply with law condemned by United Nations office on Human Rights

cropped-TSON.jpg

I did a lot of writing and sharing last night, and now in the morning I am realizing the power of Raul Alcaraz’s words last night. TUSD Governing Board Votes to Defy International Human Rights Even the United Nations is getting involved and condemning the bill HB2281. The statement was from no less than from the office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights. Wouldn’t it have been awesome if Adelita Grijalva, daughter of US Congressman Raul Grijalva, said last night “HB2281 has been condemned by the United Nations as a violation of Human Rights. Tom Horne can sue us […]

Two powerful essays by Raul in one week! www.antifronteras.com Ethnic Studies is a Human Right! TUSD Governing Board Votes to Defy International Human Rights By Raúl Al-qaraz Ochoa The Tucson Unified School District governing board is proving itself to be a highly impotent and negligent force in the struggle for human rights in Arizona. Fellow Tucson blogger, Abie, from Three Sonorans blog, published the fact that the school board was calling for an emergency meeting where they would announce what the district plans to do in regards to the sinister bill HB 2281, scheduled to go into effect in a […]

Ethnic cleansing in Arizona

Dr. Cintli, UA Professor, issues the following open letter to the state’s leaders as HB2281 becomes law. From Dr. Cintli. Arizona: Indian Removal or Modern-Day Reducciones? By Roberto Dr. Cintli Rodriguez An Open Letter to Arizona’s Tom Horne, John Huppenthal, Russell Pearce, Joe Arpaio and Jan Brewer: An Appeal to Your Conscience and Your Humanity Some people say that as Arizona’s top leaders, you are actively engaged in an unprecedented ethnic cleansing campaign against the red-brown peoples of this state. No doubt you not only disagree, but you take umbrage because you perhaps consider yourself part of a movement that […]

Two Americans found in Arizona (VIDEO)

cropped-TSON.jpg

Narrow-minded. Simple-minded. Stuck on one mantra that is repeated over and over. Illegal is illegal, repeat. Keep doing this so that you do not realize that an attack on human beings is anti-humanitarian, anti-Christian love, and anti-family. Plug your ears and repeat. Illegal is illegal. Don’t let humanity and love inside. Keep only the hate inside. Hate of human beings. Do not recognize their humanity. Dehumanize them. They are illegals. Not humans. Not temples of the Holy Spirit. Not Children of God. Not people that Jesus died for. They are illegals and nothing else. But for one short moment, enjoy […]
