Pow Pow!

A flash-mob hoping to stave off the imminent deportation of Alvaro Orozco blocked the intersection of Church and Wellesley for a time on May 20.

It was a festive atmosphere, with about 150 spilling into the intersection, dancing, singing an impromptu rendition of “We Are Family” and chanting “Justice for Alvaro; no more deportations.” Some onlookers nodded along. One precocious child made his distaste for the media known, shooting this Xtra reporter with a menacing bubble-gun.

You can read more about the story here. Also, my friend, artist Christina Boyer, told me to stop being a quitter and continue doing the political photo project until I get better. Fine. This kid counts as #3.
