[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:29:34 PM EDT] schock : San Simon known as Maximon by the Indians, is a famous Guatemalan tradition and its origins is unknown.

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:39:28 PM EDT] schock : but those who see and hear the message

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:39:33 PM EDT] josei : Do you keep hope that thing will improve now that president Obama has promised hs will do something about it

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:40:32 PM EDT] schock : and struggle to make that change real

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:40:37 PM EDT] schock : if we sit around thinking someone can do it for us

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:40:41 PM EDT] schock : we are not seeing reality

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:40:44 PM EDT] schock : we have to fight

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:47:00 PM EDT] schock : vozmob is a system of communication

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:47:05 PM EDT] schock : that can be a platform to advance

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:47:11 PM EDT] schock : to a place that we have never been able to reach

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:47:15 PM EDT] schock : with voice, photo, images, computers

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:47:21 PM EDT] schock : technology has been a big part of this

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:47:38 PM EDT] schock : to bring this communication and message to the world

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:47:54 PM EDT] carmen : going back to the point about why i started participating in the project

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:48:07 PM EDT] carmen : my life goal as Paulo Freire says is to break the silence

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:48:14 PM EDT] carmen : this project let’s us demonstrate our way of life

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:48:19 PM EDT] carmen : mobile voices is to announce and denounce

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:48:29 PM EDT] carmen : announce our way of live that other media outlets don’t show

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:48:36 PM EDT] carmen : the media, the cell phone, the internet

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:48:42 PM EDT] carmen : have the ability to democratize

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:48:50 PM EDT] carmen : the mobile has become a created necessary that everyone pays for

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:49:00 PM EDT] carmen : so we have to transform it into a tool for announcing and denouncing

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:49:06 PM EDT] carmen : the technology is a marvelous case

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:49:16 PM EDT] carmen : the desire to say we are here, these are our stories and our opinions

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:49:22 PM EDT] carmen : that is why i participate

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:49:36 PM EDT] carmen : hopefully our sponsors who are listening

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:49:46 PM EDT] carmen : feel that they have funded the project in a beneficial way

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:49:47 PM EDT] Benjamin Stokes : we have about 5 minutes left. If you have a question, now is a good time to get it out there.

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:50:04 PM EDT] schock : anyone else have a question?

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:50:09 PM EDT] schock : hi virginia🙂

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:50:16 PM EDT] Benjamin Stokes : Questions about technology?

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:50:17 PM EDT] schock : (last 5 mins)

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:50:33 PM EDT] schock : ben has a question

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:50:36 PM EDT] Benjamin Stokes : What audience are you trying to address?

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:51:06 PM EDT] carmen : we all have different perceptions

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:51:10 PM EDT] carmen : mine is not to divide

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:51:19 PM EDT] carmen : but to open up 360 degrees so that every story makes you think

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:51:22 PM EDT] carmen : and consider the others

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:51:33 PM EDT] carmen : thinking about the others is thinking about ourselves

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:51:39 PM EDT] carmen : if you see this story and think about is, perfect

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:51:47 PM EDT] carmen : could be negative or positive

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:52:01 PM EDT] carmen : but if you think about us positively, you’re thinking about yourself positively

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:52:04 PM EDT] carmen : and vice versa

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:52:20 PM EDT] josei : “pensar en los otros, es pensar en nosotros”

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:52:48 PM EDT] schock : many people have the same abilities

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:52:57 PM EDT] schock : what i say is

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:07 PM EDT] schock : reaching the audiences of people who support us

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:12 PM EDT] schock : also immigrant people

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:19 PM EDT] schock : who look for work and a better life here in USA

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:25 PM EDT] schock : so that they, with positive attitude,

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:28 PM EDT] schock : can show to the whole world

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:33 PM EDT] schock : that we don’t come here to rob

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:37 PM EDT] schock : no matter what they say

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:37 PM EDT] virginia kuhn : hi there, i was so impressed (again) by the work of vozmob. do you think you’ve been able to positively impact the view of day laborers in any way? i know there are a lot of ugly depictions out there…

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:42 PM EDT] schock : but to work and support the economy

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:47 PM EDT] schock : i want others to see that

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:50 PM EDT] schock : the positive side

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:53:59 PM EDT] schock : because we came here to integrate to this country and achieve a better life

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:54:03 PM EDT] schock : together we can achieve

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:54:11 PM EDT] schock : last question from virginia

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:54:49 PM EDT] schock : it has been a big impact

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:54:59 PM EDT] schock : there is a systemized way of keeping us unknown

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:04 PM EDT] schock : vozmob has reached day laborers

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:07 PM EDT] schock : they know about it

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:16 PM EDT] schock : there’s an informational system that is supporting them

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:22 PM EDT] schock : and defending them from the antiimmigrants

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:25 PM EDT] schock : and this helps a lot

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:28 PM EDT] schock : we are showing reality

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:38 PM EDT] Bebe Woods : Do you worry that this will become a political tool?

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:39 PM EDT] schock : we are showing the side of the immgirant who comes here to work

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:55:44 PM EDT] schock : that hasn’t been seen before

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:56:05 PM EDT] schock : that will have a bigger imapct

[Fri 16 Apr 2010 04:56:10 PM EDT] schock : we don’t care what kind of person sees it
