1. No Human Being is Illegal: The Story and Struggle of the other Hidden People of Iceland (Complete Documentary)

    01:11:28

    from Welfare Poets / Added

    A Welfare Poets' Production (August/September 2014) In association with Guerrilla Republik and Universal Zulu Nation Directed and edited by Ray Ramirez Narration, cameras and sound engineering by Michael Pacheco and Ray Ramirez One can judge a nation by the manner in which it treats the most vulnerable amongst them and some of the most vulnerable people in the world are refugees. This is the story of struggling refugees displaced by war and famine who are trying to find safe refuge and make a home in all places, Iceland. This is their story – the story of maybe just a few hundred refugees who are currently seeking asylum in Iceland, most hailing from Africa and the Middle East and some even from Europe. These long time hidden people of Iceland face a much different reality than the egalitarianism that the Icelandic government boasts about in commercials and other campaigns. Yet this is only part of the story of the hardships asylum seekers in Iceland face and their battle to be counted. It is a testament to how no human is illegal and how no one wants to be a refugee. And Iceland here has the chance to take the lead in the world regarding the manner in which asylum seekers are treated, yet sadly it seems those in power are more interested in photo ops to bolster tourist campaign ads with hollow slogans instead of doing with is right and coming to the table of humanity to stand on the side of justice, equality and brotherhood. This is “No One Wants to Be A Refugee: The Story and Struggles of the other Hidden People of Iceland.” From the closing chapter: What is happening in Iceland is nothing new to the world as it happens to refugees all over the planet. There are countries where far worse things happen to refugees and even more unspeakable things to those who are undocumented. With close to 50 million refugees and displaced peoples worldwide, what is the point of talking about a few hundred at most? Why Iceland? Why did we spend countless hours struggling through to complete this project? Most of all, it was directly because of the asylum seekers themselves, those we met, performed for and we talked and built with. It was their attitudes and tireless push to find a safe haven here in Iceland or anywhere they can. We were inspired by each of their stories of survival, all the shut doors they were being shown and their will to still push on for themselves in the face of all of this. It is true that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere and wherever one sees it, it is one's duty to call attention to it. It is also our duty to connect the dots and make others understand that the struggle for justice and freedom is linked everywhere. This is our attempt to call attention to what we bared witness to. For us, we are not documentary makers. We are emcees/musicians and teachers, but we had to do this project and battle through all we did not know because of brothers like Henry and all the others who with every word they speak, call attention to the fact that no one wants to be a refugee and how NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL.

                    from Welfare Poets / Added

                    Sep. 16th 2005, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez visited The Point CDC in the South Bronx, NY on a recent trip to the u.s. to sell oil at a reduced rate to low income areas. The Welfare Poets had the honor to meet/perform for this great Latin American leader.
