Dreams 2012

Some dreams from our partners:

“Happiness is not doing as like, instead it’s liking what you do, and analizing the good to transform the bad. Turn your life into a dream and your dream a reality.” Leidys of the Southern Bolivar Agricultural-mining Federation

“An equitable Tiquisio for everyone, where we can raise our children, live, grow and study in peace, freedom and complete joy. A Tiquisio that in the midst of the immense darkness in our country, keeps the fire of justice and truth burning. We as the fire struggle and burn to keep us lit each day. That at all times our struggle be arduous and constant. We dream that this fire not go out so quickly.” Genys, Tiquisio, South of Bolivar

“We dream of a better life for working people. These dreams will be achieved to the extent that each worker opens his/her heart to interact affectionately extending arms to welcome their closest sisters and brothers. To the extent that the child in the manger gives the capacity to dream of the liberation of a people enslaved by the lust for power. Many working people have allied with the workers because there lacks a child to show them the light of dreams of peace and justice, to dream that another world is possible on equal terms for everyone. Merry Christmas and renew our spirit to continue raising our voices of Good News for the impoverished.” Sisters of Saint John the Evangelist “Juanistas”
