We are living slavery, a different type but still slavery. The shackles today are not made of iron, they are made of violence causing trauma and death, they are made of exclusion causing isolation, they are also made of marginalization causing inertia, and they are made of cultural domination stripping us from who we are. All of these shackles are put in place to make us feel powerless, to make us think we are unable to change our reality, the social structures which sustain the ideologies of the dominant minority. YES, those invisible shackles of oppression make us vulnerable, nonetheless, there lays within us dormant the courage of our ancestors and our own. I guess we needed to hibernate to survive, to revitalize, to then, all --with all of our identities-- uprise to change the social order. Let us all stop dreaming and construct free and just realities for all.
