On this 4th of July I visited the Immigration Detention Center where Children are being held in Florida. Even though we did not go very far because there were so many checkpoints it was extremely challenging. The energy was so intense, it was so painful being this close to kidnapped children and feeling helpless. The most difficult part was seeing an unmarked bus with detained immigrants. I can’t imagine how it must feel to be a child there in captivity separated from your parents. There aren’t words to describe how I feel right now, but I do believe that today’s experience will forever fuel my mission as an artist, healer and activist.
If your in in Miami come to my show, it will be up until November...
Blessings the work con Agua de Florida.

Today I recreated a Martin Roth performance where he bought and released doves that were going to be sacrificed in Mexico City.
Rest In Peace my friend. Martin Roth was with me when I found out I had Cancer. He was extremely supportive during those times. What stands out about him was his love to animals and nature, what a beautiful human he was. His compassion and empathy for our nature is something I will always remember...

(Please no emojis ) #Repost @guardian with @get_repost ・・・ Around 7,000 people, including entire families and unaccompanied children, are heading to the US border to escape violence and poverty in Central America. They started in Honduras and have travelled 1500km in gruelling conditions through Guatemala and southern Mexico. The caravan has enabled Trump to campaign hard on illegal immigration ahead of the midterm congressional elections, claiming that “hardened criminals” and “unknown Middle Easterners” are among the group. Mexico has promised temporary shelter, schooling and jobs to people who register for asylum in an attempt to stop them from crossing the US-Mexico border. Meanwhile, a new group of migrants bound for the US set off from El Salvador on Sunday. Photo: Guillermo Arias/Getty Images
