GENTRIFICATION
WE PARTICIPATE
YOU PARTICIPATE
I PARTICIPATE
THEY PROFIT

LLENO DE VIDA
LLENO DE DESEO
MIENTRAS ANDO
DE DESEMPLEO

HOLLYWOOD IS
A MIRAGE
WITH GLOBAL
SCREENINGS

QUE QUEREMOS?
PUES TODO
PORQUE NOS
DAN CASI NADA

DOES GENTRIFICATION
HAVE AGENTS
OR IS IT
AN ECONOMIC FORCE?

ARE YOU TOO WHITE
FOR THIS HOOD?
ARE YOU HOOD ENUFF
FOR THIS BLIGHT?

LOS ANGELES
VA ARDER
CON TANTAS
LOMAS SECAS

HOW LONG WILL
MOM & DAD
PAY YOUR RENT?
UNTIL THE RIOTS?

SI TOMAS EN
LA CALLE DEBES
SER GRINGO
SI NO LA CHOTA

WE LOVE THE
IMAGES OF THE
CITY AFLAME
AGAIN & AGAIN

LIVING IN A
FLOOD PLAIN
WAITING FOR
THE FLOOD AGAIN

WHAT IS ART
BUT A COMMODITY
THAT SELLS FAR ABOVE
ITS USE-VALUE?

ANTES IBAMOS
AL CENTRO
AHORA VAMOS
A NINGUN LADO

WE WILL NOT
BE CONTAINED
IN YOUR GALLERIES
OR UNIVERSITIES

THE CITY CANNOT
BE SAVED FOR
IT HAS LONG
BEEN LOST

WE REMEMBER
THE VIEW OF THE
CITY STANDING
ON THE FREEWAY

ME RECUERDO
CUANDO MI
BARRIO NO EXISTIA
AHORA ES CARO

WE SIT IN THE
BACK OF THE ROOM
LAUGHING CUZ WE
RECOGNIZE FOOLS

Y ME RECUERDO
DE LOS DIAS DE
LOS DISTURBIOS
QUERIENDO MAS

L.A. IS NOT A DESERT
WE WERE NOT
DISCOVERED
WE WILL BURN AGAIN

MIJO FUE AL
COLEGIO Y
REGRESO SIN
NOPAL

GENTRIFICATION
IS A BLIGHT
WHICH KILLS
BLEACH WHITE

BRINDAMOS
AL COMUNISMO
Y A SU HERMANA
ANARQUIA

THERE HAVE
BEEN MANY
COMMUNES
SOME IN L.A.

DEMOCRACY
IS WHAT WE
DO WITH THOSE
WE DON'T TRUST

ONE BIG PARTY
ONE BIG UNION
BUT WHO WANTS
TO JOIN?

NO SOMOS
ENVIDIOSOS
SINO
ODIOSOS

WHAT DO WE
WORK TOWARDS?
TO FREE US
FROM WORK

WHY ORGANIZE
THE WORKPLACE
WHEN WE CAN
DESTROY IT?

NOS GUSTA LEER
NOS GUSTA DISCUTAR
PERO A VECES
NECESISTAMOS BAILAR

FORMAL EQUALITY
INFORMAL WORK
THE RENT’S PAST DUE
HOW DOES CAPITALISM WORK?

NICE SHIT
FOR EVERYBODY
IS NOT A DREAM
BUT A THREAT
