Reflections On Network Aztlán News Group ~ VIA @Peta_de_Aztlan

Wed. Febrero 6, 2013
La Raza Cosmica ~ With all that is going on now, again, over Immigration and Congressional Hearings we all really need to step up our activity and our presence online, offline in our local community and inline with our spirits. We should not be naive and get too hyped up about immigration reform. POTUS Obama plays us like a violin, esp. because we have traditionally being Democratcs. Quit looking to Emperor Obama for our solutions as a people. There are major snags already!

We need to look at how we can build up the Chicano Movement or a La Raza Cosmca Movement, not isolated from others but in harmony with the larger matrix of liberation movements around the world, including the Idle No More Movement. Chicanos are like a lost tribe, certainly not a soverign nation. How many of our youth now identify themselves as Chicanos? Who of them could have been around in the early days of the Chicano Movement? As Chicanos we must understand that we are also indigenous natives of Aztlán.

Look at our presence online as an interconnected matrix, not just an exclusive little Yahoo Group.

I have been posting News Items and Links now for over 10 years with actually little to show for it compared to all the time-energy-attention I have put into it. Nonetheless, I myself have learned a lot, I have expanded my consciousness and I continue to actively network with others in different ways on different levels.

I hardly ever post here because it is such a small insulated group with little participation beyond a clique of regulars. We argue about petty matters too much when we are suppose to be one family here. All our basic survival needs are identical no matter who we are on an existential level.

We cannot expect everyone to post stuff just that we happen to agree with and narrow our input range. If we know everything we can learn nothing. We should welcome debate, dialogue and active discussion.

My main agenda is a humane rights agenda for all peoples, not strictly a Chicano agenda, though I am a Chicano de Aztlan!

P.S. Think about Internet connectivity. For example, when I click Send to get this Email out it will also go to three other blogs. Think about that!
