Dear Friends, Family, and Allies,
On Friday, April 23rd 2010 at approximately 1:30pm Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona signed into law the most aggressive bill against undocumented residents in the United States. Under Senate Bill 1070 (SB 1070) local police departments have been given the authority to identify, detain, and deport anyone they deem to be illegally in the US based solely on their suspicion. Yet we ask, “what does illegal look like?”
We the people believe that this is not only a decision deeply rooted in racism, but also a political plot to cause disruption between the State and Federal government at the expense of hard working families. The same stigma that has plagued people of color in unfair hiring and housing practices, education, police profiling and more has now been passed into so-called “law.” Law is nothing but an opinion reinforced by intimidation. Also, how can you call someone else illegal when you live on stolen land?
We won’t take this sitting down. Resist. Fight.

Jedan od najboljih repera na ovim prostorima – Frenkie, predstavit će svoj novi album “Protuotrov” u glavnom gradu Španjolske, Madridu.
Tamo će 15. svibnja nastupiti na poznatom Cultura Urbana festivalu koji svake godine okupi preko 15 000 posjetitelja. Festival se održava u tamošnjoj Telefónica areni, a između ostalih nastupit će Afrika Bambaataa i Raekwon (Wu-Tang Clan).
Na festivalu će se osim koncerata održati i natjecanja u poznatom reperskom nadmetanju (battle), ekstremnim sportovima, breakdanceu, graffitima itd. Organizatori festivala prepoznali su Frenkija kao izvođača vrijednog pažnje na nedavno održanom velikom europskom okupljanju urbanih glazbenika u Bruxellesu pod nazivom “Diversidad”.
