To Walk in Beauty
More than just a Dream:
The South Central Farm is Everywhere
The Declaration of the Leadership Council of the South Central Farm Movement
The Spirit cannot be uprooted. That’s the most fundamental truth of the matter.
It was heart breaking to have the Farm stolen from us, to be driven away from it by a small army of police like chattel slaves being driven to the slave ships; to have to re-live what our ancestors faced, what indigenous peoples have always faced at the hands of this system.
But we know that it is not the tragedies of our lives, but, rather, the choices we make in response to them, that have to power to shape who and what we become, and that shape what we are able to realize in our futures. No one but each of us, individually and collectively, has that power, it is not the tragedies and oppressions that are scripted into the system that are decisive, but the choices we make about our lives as we encounter them that ultimately decide the matter.
