We are not mountains we have to move.

n-IMMIGRANTS-628x314

Immigrants are not mountains. The movement of people from one territory to the other is not a crime.

The migration of third world peoples (kings and queens) to other parts of the world for economic betterment is not a crime.
Immigrants are not mountains. We have to move.
We have to move to search for “greener pastures” even though the lands we go in search for these better lives are the cause of our own territorial disorganisation.
Immigrants are not mountains. We have to move.
African immigrants are not fraudsters. My parents just want me to do better than they did so that I don’t have to work 12 hours a day to send 99% of the money back home.
Immigrants are not mountains. We have to move. We have to move to take back what was originally ours. We have to move to show our children what it looks and feels like to be us.

To be an immigrant. To be African in Europe. To be African in the land of former colonial leaders. To be African on a continent of uncertain identities. To be African outside of Africa.
Immigrants are not mountains. We have to move.
