New Film on Common Roots of Problems
The most conscious leaders of the movement against immigrant repression understand that the government wants to keep the resistance confined within community and ethnic limits, so they are taking their message beyond that. One example is by organizing viewings of Eternos Indocumentados, a new bilingual documentary video about the terrible conditions that force millions out of Central America, and also exposes practices of the American government and corporate leaders which created those conditions.
The corporate media only blames predatory gangs for the tide of Central Americans fleeing the region. Eternos Indocumentados has members of an Los Angelos based organization for Salvadoran ex-gang members explain how ill-conceived deportation drives in the 1980s actually worsened the poverty and gang problems in both countries.
Revealing such social issues at the root of immigration, Eternos touches on problems familiar to anyone struggling against the growth of poverty among U.S. citizens. It shows that these common problems have a common source, the ruling class that is in control both here and there.

The age-old vision of a world without scarcity, without exploitation, class domination, organized violence, and stultifying labor has been the dream of millenia. The new completely socialized labor-eliminating means of production ... sets the basis for its realization. Now human history can begin, the light of the individual shining in the full brightness of liberated life, that can only be realized within true equality and cooperation: communism, a cooperative society.'Without Vision, the People Perish'
