"A Las Cuatro Direccions" print designed by Dignidad Rebelde and published by Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer. It says "Somos de La Tierra y la Tierra no Tiene Fronteras.". It also has an amazing quote from Lesikar Ole Ngila a Maasai activist.
"You force me to follow laws that are not my own, and lifestyles that I don't know. You try to force me to mimic your behaviour, wh ich I don't know properly, and it will make me foolish, impoverished and sick, because I am only a tourist in your worlds. You evict me from my own land by force; you don' t even buy it. You don't give me water in return, you don't give me food in return. Nothing. You force me to go to town and search for work, or to sit at home and wait for your handouts of maize as if I were the criminal.
