Yacatsol is a border-crossing, multilingual, decolonial, “cura” musical art project by Iris Rodriguez of Xica Media.
Those in power don’t care about hurting us
Their power sits on our backs so let’s stand up
They say “pay your taxes” and obey silently
Mechanize your part in their machine
Gotta stay trucha, pon ojo
Families imprisoned, ICE raids, and who knows
They want us scared, like cucuy! cucuy everywhere!
Together let’s break through the fear
They want borders, bombs, to eat death and fear
Frack, enslave, oppress, and profiteer
We must join together to survive
Let’s take a leap, break them chains, and let’s unite
We’re all up in the system
It’s come down to us versus them
Take the white blindfold off your eyes
Divest, direct action, decolonize
Returning to our earth-based ways is key
For all the colors of humanity
We gotta move, we gotta act, we’re out of time
Take my hand, our liberation is intertwined
We’re all connected for a reason
Trust your gut, trust your vision
Even if you’re deep in the machine
Together tenemos que sacudir
