Even here in Tejas a lotta people think it’s “Mexican Independence Day”Today is May 5th, the day celebrated in Mexico as Cinco de Mayo, a relatively minor festival in which Mexicans celebrate their victory over the French Empire in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is currently celebrated more in the US than in Mexico. The real irony is that the majority of Americans running around in sombreros and chugging margaritas and Dos Equis today are Republicans who demand we "build that wall".
506 deportations from Germany failed last year because the pilots refused to fly. It's not much, but it's a start. Zivilcourage gegen Abschiebepolitik: Kein Abflug für Abschiebungen(Link to German web site)
