Pancho Pescador & 67 Suenos

A little over a week ago, Pancho Pescador meet Pablo Paredes, a Ecuadorian and Puerto rican war resister and organizer with 67 Suenos, a grassroots organization giving a voice to undocumented youth in San Francisco. This began a whirlwind relationship as they instantly began implementing a massive 30' x 150' mural on 9th St. between Mission St. and Market in downtown San Francisco. "Pablo sent me some files of stories that the youth had written about their lives on Sunday, on Monday I sent him a sketch and by 3 o'clock that afternoon, we were painting." The mural tells the stories of three of the students in 67 Suenos and their struggles as undocumented immigrants. At the top of the building, the mural will conclude with the message that No Human Being is Illegal. This week, Pancho and the students brought in aerosol writers, Beats 737 and Desi W.O.M.E, also from the Community Rejuvenation Project, to contribute the words "67 Suenos" and "Resistance" on sections of the border wall depicted running through the mural. Pancho will continue painting through next Friday, when 67 Suenos will host a mural dedication event.  Everyone is encouraged to attend.
