I am a Mexican biologist, working in the US, trying to survive these years. I did not get to vote (as many other people in this country for many¬† different reasons) but I live here and the desicions of Mr. Trump affect us here and elsewhere. Also I could have decided not to vote and still I would have the right to protest and defend what is right–that is what democracy look like!

I am writing because it is the main resource I am left with. Because I think my voice (and those of many others) matters and because I think the environment is too divisive and there are true concerns on all sides. But the true concerns, fears and anxieties are being exploited by a few in a world where truth seems to be in decline.
