Multicultural artist Manu Chao offered a free concert in support of Latinos in Arizona, after protesting anti-immigration laws in front of Sheriff Arpaio’s office.
Protesters and media members that had gathered in front of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Phoenix office Tuesday, were joined by French-Spaniard Manu Chao.
The artist quickly became the center of attention, his mantras chanted by the crowd, his voice heard, and his message spread:
“A lot of people here are trying to fight against these new laws and I think it’s important to come and see what’s happening with my own eyes and do my part to better the world,” Manu says. “My message [to Arpaio] would be, that it makes no sense to make more people suffer for something that is naturally coming. You cannot make war against a flow that is natural.”
