In honor of the #LaborDay2019 , here are some immigrants and/or POC* laboring mightily in #immigrationlaw, policy, & media you should know about.

Be sure to give them a follow if you don't already!

*I'll try not to make this too New England-centric, but probably will anyway
Let's start with a hometown hero:

Antonio Massa Viana (@MassaVianaLaw) was the 1st undocumented immigrant admitted to practice as a lawyer in #Massachusetts. He demonstrates total dedication to his local Brazilian community and beyond every day.

Hassan Ahmad (@HMAesq) is an incredible advocate in his own right. But he's also doing vital work exposing John Tanton, the man whose white supremacist beliefs became the foundation for modern American nativism. (Also associate Humza Kazmi @Allandaros)

Every year on #LaborDay, Americans come together to salute and pay homage to the hard-working men and women who built this great nation. They are the backbone of our communities, our country, our economy, and our democracy. Image
It is because of America’s labor movement that Americans today enjoy a two-day weekend, 40-hour work week, fair wages, safer workplaces, family leave, and the right to join a union. Each are hard fought victories that we do not take for granted.
This #LaborDay2019, let’s honor all the people who fought for workers’ rights and fair working conditions across the U.S. On the shop floor, in the streets, and on the picket line. Happy #LaborDay. 🇺🇸

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry
