Solidarity feast. Athens Sunday 10 january Victoria square

Solidarity feast

immigrants, refugees, people with or without “papers”
in these streets, neighbourhoods and squares,
where every day the struggle for survival clashes
with the “sweeping operations” and the exploitation,
the dignity with the racism and the xenophobia,
the solidarity with the humiliations, the tortures and the terrorism
we are getting together one more time, to share
a few moments of hope, joy and liberty
food, music, dance

Sunday the 10th of January 2010, 13:00 h, Victoria square

immigrants, refugees, people in solidarity

i saw a heart following you on the mountains

all of you running away from war and nofuture
and who have to take the rocky ways
and pay the most expensive ticketprises
to make the most unsecure travels
on the way to a better life in freedom and peace.

while we, with the passports in our pockets
come and go
whenever and wherever we want.
