Willem Van Spronsen is Immortal

“i have a father’s broken heart
i have a broken down body
and i have an unshakeable
abhorrence of injustice.

detention camps are
an abomination.
i’m not standing by.
i really shouldn’t have
to say any more than this.

i set aside
my broken heart
and i heal the only way
i know how – by being useful.
i efficiently
compartmentalize my pain…
and i joyfully go about this work.

i’m a head in the clouds dreamer,
i believe in love and redemption.
i believe we’re going to win.
i’m joyfully revolutionary.

i am antifa,
i stand with comrades
around the world
who act from the love
of life in every

comrades who understand
that freedom means
real freedom for all
and a life worth living.”

Abolish ICE, Fire to the state, it’s prisons and it’s borders.
