Act

Roque Dalton (El Salvador) - Translated from Spanish by Jack Hirschman  |  Issue: January 2015

In the name of those washing others’ clothes

(and cleaning others’ filth from the whiteness)

In the name of those caring for others’ children

(and selling their labor power

in the form of maternal love and humiliations)

In the name of those living in another’s house

(which isn’t even a kind belly but a tomb or a jail)

In the name of those eating others’ crumbs

(and chewing them still with the feeling of a thief)

In the name of those living on others’ land

(the houses and factories and shops

streets cities and towns

rivers lakes volcanoes and mountains

always belong to others

and that’s why the cops and the guards are there

guarding them against us)

In the name of those who have nothing but hunger, exploitation, disease,

a thirst for justice and water

persecutions and condemnations

loneliness abandonment oppression and death

I accuse private property

of depriving us of everything.
