Carlos Batara's curator insight, August 23, 2013 7:30 PM

Civil Disobedience is back.

 

And it couldn't arrive soon enough.

 

It's been some time since I've seen a sense of idealism and morality drive individuals to risk their futures for a higher calling.

 

Contrary to public opinion, civil disobedience is not fueled by disrepect for the law.  Rather, it speaks to fundamental principles which should guide all societies.

 

For quite some time, undocumented immigrants have been subjected to race baiting, social mistreatment, economic exploitation, and political scapegoating.  

 

It's time for such immorality to end. 

 

Yet,  even during times when so-called "immigration reform" is being discussed, hidden and disguised provisions are being pushed which will worsen the situation of hard-working immigration families.  

 

So if the political system wants to remain deaf to such issues, let the civil disobedients wake up the public.

 

Sooner or later, the majority will see through the false xenophobic arguments against immigrants.

 

In a nutshell, that's the legacy of civil disobedience.
