    Artist statement:
    "Housing is a human right. The fight for land and housing is one that dates back to over 500 years, beginning with the rape of Indian land by Spanish colonizers, the theft of Mexican territories, the racist policies that prohibited African and Indian people from owning land. Today many working class communities are at the mercy of big business, which exploit the land for profit and destroy communities. The basic demand for community control of the land, which was set forth by our revolutionary predecessors throughout the civil rights movement, is still relevant to us today."
