about

April 1993 saw the death of Cesar Chavez, the union leader committed to the fight for the rights of immigrant workers from Central and South America in the United States. One of his better known and more significant mottos was, ¡Sì, se puede!, a maxim used to counter the obstacles scattered along the road to reform and justice; obstacles often justified by blind impossibility or by the fear of touching something held untouchable, possibly even by those struggling for their own rights.
On 1st May 2006, A Day Without Immigrants, hundreds of thousands of ghost workers flooded into the city squares to protest against the exacerbation of the law regarding clandestine immigration (HR4337) decided by the Bush administration. One of the slogans that was used most in the protest marches in the numerous cities where these rallies were held, was in fact, ¡Sì, se puede! This music is offered as a pacifist Deguello, a gathering, the soundtrack of a march towards progress and justice: a token gesture to remember, to participate, and to stand by these people.
