GOGOL BORDELLO BOYCOTTING ARIZONA

(Pardon all the caps, but it's important, ain't it? Shouting officially allowed, I reckon.)

ATTN FRIENDS: GOGOL BORDELLO ARE OFFICIALLY BOYCOTTING ARIZONA IN RESPONSE TO SB 1070. READ EUGENE'S STATEMENT THEN JOIN THE FIGHT BY SIGNING THE PETITION AT THE SOUND STRIKE.

IMMIGRATION NATURALLY ENRICHES CULTURE AND HUMAN RESOURCE OF ANY COUNTRY. JUST LIKE NEW GENES BRING GUSTO INTO ANY GENETIC POOL. IT IS A COMPLICATED SENSITIVE SUBJECT TO CONSIDER WITH CARE AND LOVE, SINCE IT INVOLVES CHANGES OF ENTIRE DESTINIES ALL AT ONCE. IF A COUNTRY'S FOUNDING VALUES INCLUDE WELCOME TO NEWCOMERS, THERE MUST BE A COMMITMENT TO PURSUE THIS ETHIC. IF NEWCOMER IS OFFICIALLY WELCOMED, HE SHALL BE ABLE TO KEEP FEELING WELCOMED ONCE HE IS THERE, RIGHT? NOT INTIMIDATED, THREATENED AND HUMILIATED. AS A BAND OF IMMIGRANTS WE HAVE RECEIVED BOTH HONORS AND WELCOMES THAT REINSURE THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF IMMIGRATION. AND WE VE BEEN GRATEFUL ABOUT IT TO NY EVER SINCE. ESPECIALLY WHEN SEEING OTHER COUNTRIES NOT DOING THEIR BEST. WITH MY OWN EXPERIENCE I MUST SAY U.S. ACTUALLY STANDS OUT AS A BETTER ONE AMONGST OTHERS. HOWEVER WE CAN NOT LOOK THE OTHER WAY WHEN DOUBLE STANDARD AND FACE CONTROL IS TAKEN PLACE. PLEASE LEARN ABOUT THE SITUATION AND TAKE ACTION TO PRESERVE PROGRESSIVE THOUGHT.

- EUGENE HÜTZ, JUNE 2010.
