 BARRIO

Resisting gentrification in El Paso, Duranguito community! The Eighth Court of Appeals ordered the city to suspend permits authorizing demolition of Duranguito that were aimed to create space for an arena, but the barrio knows what's up! The city isn't trusted to keep off the streets and properties. Protesters are out on in 90+ degree weather, protecting their communities โคโœŠ Spread the word ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š gentrificationIsViolence @Regrann from @xicanisma_ - Thank you to everyone sending encouraging messages! As I've mentioned, we have been fighting the City for months now, but the last two days have been physically and emotionally exhausting. We have no reason to trust that the City will obey the injunction, so we will be more vigilant than ever. For those asking what they can do to help from outside of El Paso, please just spread word on Duranguito. If you have any connects in big media, forward it to them! This isn't just El Paso's history, it's Mexican-American history, it's United States history. (You can also follow Paso del Sur on FB for all updates). We will continue to fight back on this attack on our community and history._ _ Art by @zpvisual ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’–โœŠ๐Ÿพ GentrificationIsViolence DuranguitoEP - regrann
