Stop Gatekeeper And The militarizatin Of The Border

Stop Gatekeeper And The militarizatin Of The Border

Stop Gatekeeper And The militarizatin Of The Border

Companeros y Companeras

On Saturday, December 8, the Raza Rights Coalition will be establishing a permanent presence, "planton" to last until Saturday, December 15 in front of World Duty Free Shops in San Ysidro (at the pedestrian entrance to Tijuana).  the purpose of this mobilization will be to protest 7 years of Operation Gatekeeper and its sinister bottom line of over 720 migrant workers (the majority Mexican) dead due to a deliberate US Government strategy of sealing off the border zone of San Ysidro/Tijuana and forcing migrants to the mountains and deserts where they face certain death not only at the hands of the Border Patrol but of the elements.

These deaths of our brothers and sisters are made more senseless and enraging because the poverty and hunger, the misery and repression they seek to escape in coming across the Border the US imposed following the end of its expansionist war against Mexico in 1848 are caused directly by the US inspired neoliberal and globalizing economic policies.  The repression, forced disappearances, torture-the low intensity war practiced by US Puppet governments throughout Latin America ( the most prominent example being the PRI/PAN government in Mexico) are taught to these "loyal" US creations by the Pentagon, the CIA and the FBI.  Now the US seeks to victimize and treat as criminals the same people whose suffering they directly caused in the first place.  The Raza Rights Coalition, and people of conscience everywhere must lift our voices and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

For all these reasons, the Coalition calls on everyone to join this campaign and support us during the week of the 8th to the 15th.  We will be holding a rally at 4pm on Monday, December 10-International Human Rights Day to show the World the true face of a government that carries out genocide within its so-called borders as it pontificates about human rights to the rest of the world.  To be part of this campaign, communicate with the coalition at coalicionproderechos@hotmail.com or through this email.  Only together can we stop Gatekeeper and the militarizatin of the border.


Este mensaje va dirigido a todos que se preocupan por la justicia de nuestro pueblo y por la defensa de los derechos humanos basicos.

Comenzando el dia sabado, 8 de diciembre, la Coalicion Pro-Derechos de la Raza se instalara en Planton frente a la Tienda World Duty Free en San Ysidro, en la entrada Peatonal hacia Tijuana.  El Motivo del Planton sera denunciar la muerte de mas de 720 trabajadores migrantes (la mayoria mexicanos) por causa directa del Operativo Guardian-una estrategia del Gobierno de los Estados Unidos de militarizar la zona fronteriza de San Ysidro/Tijuana-forzando a los migrantes a cruzar por zonas peligrosas con condiciones climatologicas extremas que les perjudica la salud y la misma vida.  Desde 1994, han muerto mas de 720 seres humanos cuyo unico crimen es intentar escapar el hambre y la miseria impuesta por la misma politica de "globalizacion" impuesta en Latinoamerica por Estados Unidos y sus gobiernos titeres tales como el PRI/PAN gobierno de Mexico.  Al cruzar esa frontera impuesta por Estados Unidos al terminar su guerra expansionista y terrorista contra Mexico en 1848, los migrantes tambien buscan escapar la represion, la militarizacion, la tortura, las desapariciones forzadas-la Guerra de Baja Intensidad que los gobiernos de Latinoamerica practican en contra de quien se opone a sus politicas entreguistas.  Estos gobiernos titeres y verdugos son financiados y entrenados para cometer estas atrocidades por el mismo gobierno de los Estados Unidos por medio del Pentagono, la CIA y el FBI.

Por todas estas razones, y para desenmascarar esta politica asesina de Estados Unidos, la Coalicion Pro-Derechos de la Raza permanecera en planton desde el dia sabado 8 de diciembre hasta el dia sabado, 15 de diciembre.  El lunes, 10 de diciembre-Dia Internacional de los Derechos Humanos, convocaremos un mitin a las 4pm para denunciar ante el mundo el magnicida de mas de 720 trabajadores cuyas mismas condiciones economicas son causadas directamente por la politica economica del gobierno que los persigue como criminales.  Si quieres participar en esta campana, y ser parte de esta movilizacion historica, comunicate con la Coalicion en coalcionproderechos@hotmail.com. o a este correo electronico. Salgamos todos a la calle durante esa semana para demostrarle al mundo que la muerte de nuestros companeros no fue en vano.  Luchemos por la justicia y la dignidad de los trabajadores migrantes y nuestro pueblo entero.  Solo unidos podemos acabar con el Operativo Guardian, la militarizacion de la frontera y el hostigamiento sistematico de nuestro pueblo
