RIVERSIDE (California) - Occupy Riverside's Latino Forum celebrated three months of the movement's existence with traditional foods, music of resistance, and piñatas at Fairmount Park.

El Foro Latino tiene poco menos de dos meses trabajando dentro del movimiento Occupy Riverside para dar a entender los asuntos de la comunidad latina. Se reúne cada sábado a las 10:30 de la mañana en la plaza pietonal de University y Main en el centro de Riverside. El Foro cuenta con partícipes salvadoreñxs, mexicanxs, guatemaltecxs, y bolivianxs. Entre los temas más destacados en las pláticas del Foro son educación, inseguridad económica, y migración.

La fiesta de hoy se planeó para festejar y reconocer las contribuciones de la comunidad latina. Llegaron alrededor de 50 personas y sus familias, muchas de ellas con platos típicos de sus países para compartir, no sólamente a lxs invitadxs, sino también a las personas desamparadas.

Un pintor expuso sus obras, y el grupo Son Real tocó música andina y mejicana.

A pesar de la participación de varios activistas pro-inmigrantes desde su comienzo, este encuentro marca la primera vez que lxs indignadxs de Occupy Riverside une fuerzas con el movimiento migrante. El desalojo del campamento anti-Wall Street dio nuevo sentido al lema clásico "Aquí estamos y no nos vamos" cuando se canteó entre lxs indignadxs. Y aunque cuestiones migrantorias suelen provocar controversia en el ambiente político conservador del Inland, el público simpatizó con los mensajes a favor de la legalización y en contra de la deportaciones, y reconoció al pueblo migrante como parte del 99%.



For almost two months, the Latino Forum has meeting Saturdays at 10:30 at University and Main to bringing attention to the issues of the Latinx community. The Forum has members from El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala, and Bolivia. Some of the issues that have stood out in their discussions are education, economic insecurity, and immigration.

Today's fiesta was held to celebrate and recognize the contributions of the Latinx community. About 50 people and their families, many bearing traditional foods to share, not only with each other, but also with the homeless and hungry.

A painter showed his work, and the group Son Real played Andean and Mexican music.

Despite the membership of numerous immigrant rights activists since its inception, today's gathering marked the first time that Occupy Riverside has joined forces with the immigrant rights movement. When Occupy Riverside chanted "Aquí estamos y no nos vamos," ("We're here and we're not leaving!") took on a new meaning in light of the eviction of our encampment. And while immigrant rights is often a controversial issue in our area, the public was sympathetic to pro-legalization and anti-deportation messages. There was also a recognition that the immigrant community is part of the 99%.
