Argentina, Spain, USA: Humanity over Nationality

Martin Varsavsky, himself an Argentine immigrant living in Spain envisions “political parties made of immigrants joined by native citizens who felt that to them humanity was a stronger concept than nationalism.” In fact, he says it's already happening: “As the May 1st walkout is proving, America would suffer very badly without the hispanic participation. And when all the other immigrants join in, Asians, Eastern Europeans, Africans, it will be time for mainstream political parties that something must be done to end the tremendous unfairness of people working every day who are treated as criminals.”
