> Estimadas/os: Below is a link to Abie Morales' ("The Three Sonorans") article, re: last night's event at which Chief Mexican Hater John Huppenthal (Arizona Supt. of Public Instruction, who has decreed that Mexican American Studies is "illegal") came to Tucson to serve on a panel to discuss a movie featuring a particular educational program. The Mexican American Studies teachers who are being demonized by Huppenthal were there and were allowed two minutes to present their perspective, and the teachers asked me to be their representative.
> After commenting on how Huppenthal's own audit praised the MAS program, how MAS students graduate at a higher rate than their non-MAS peers, etc., I ripped into Huppenthal, re: his comparing our kids to Hitler's Jugend and demanded an apology, and in that context I referenced his (Huppenthal's) support of Russell Pearce, who knowingly consorts with neo-Nazis, etc....
> Huppenthal didn't respond to me except to say that Russell Pearce is a very decent human being and a very good friend of his...
> and, bizarrely, with regard to my having referenced the fact that Huppenthal is supporting Pearce, who consorts openly with neo-Nazis like J.T Ready, Huppenthal retorted that Pearce has taken pictures with homosexuals but is not a homosexual.
> I tried to put my comments in a rationale, educational context, but I'm not sure I totally succeeded--it's hard (at least for me...I've still got too much street in me, I guess...all my fancy college degrees, etc., have proven to be totally useless when it comes to being civil with the likes of Huppenthal, Horne, Pearce, etc.). In the picture in Abie's article, Huppenthal serendipitiously is standing in front of a sign that says "evil"--or maybe not so serendipitously? Huppenthal, Horne, Pearce and their whole gang of Tea Party Mexican haters are as evil as they come.

Inaugural sessions of the Tribunal were held in Quito, Ecuador October 7-8 2010 (in conjunction with the IV World Social Forum on Migration- WSFM), and in Mexico City Nov. 4-6 and Guadalajara Nov. 8 2010, as part of the first Global Alternative Forum of Peoples in Movement, convened as a grassroots alternative to the Iv Global Forum on Migration and Development- GFMD; Alternative Forum included the Tribunal, the 3rd International Assembly of Migrants and Refugees- IAMR 3- both held in Mexico City-Tenochtitlan- and the Caravan of Migrant Dignity, organized by mothers, relatives, and defenders of Central American migrants disappeared in transit, which began in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, continued in Mexico City and Guadalajara, and culminated in Puerto Vallarta site of the IV GFMD, Nov. 8-9. 2010.
Cases addressed by the Tribunal include the effects of SB 1070 in Arizona (and equivalent laws elsewhere, as recently in Utah, Indiana, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Texas) and their relationship to increased violence and deaths at the U.S-Mexico border and en route; the San Fernando Massacre in Tamaulipas of 72 migrants in transit from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Brazil, its context and effects on their rights to freedom of movement, humanitarian assistance, sanctuary, asylum, and refuge; forced migration and displacement of indigenous and campesino communities in Guerrero, Chiapas, Oaxaca, San Salvador Atenco, etc.; forced displacement of indigenous and Afro-Colombian communities in Colombia due to U.S intervention through Plan Colombia; militarization, externalization and regionalization of the repressive migration policies of the EU in Africa and the Middle East and mass expulsions of Roma ("gypsies") and related xenophobic policies in France, Italy, and Spain; cases of forced migration and displacement due to colonialism and neo-colonialism regarding the Mapuche indigenous people in Chile and Argentina, Puerto Rico, Palestine, the Saharan Arab Democratic Republic; state-sponsored human trafficking and other human rights violations related to "guest-worker" programs in the Philippines and historic injustices relating to the U.S-Mexico "Bracero" Program; manipulation of migration policies as a component of U.S aggression against Cuba, related discrimination against migrants from Haiti, etc.
Key current priorities include:
1) continuing attention to and updating of concerns regarding cases presented in Quito and Mexico City
2) support of initiatives to create and support human rights observatories from Chihuahua to Chiapas in Mexico with support from Mexican and indigenous communities in the U.S and in key countries of origin of migrants in transit
3) support of convergent efforts to defend rights and dignity of "peoples in movement" throughout the world, through a Permanent Migrant Forum linked to the Tribunal
