Anti-immigrant racist groups 'CCIR' and 'American Patrol' are holding yet another rally! Both groups have members who have claimed credit for attacking immigrants crossing the US/Mexican border. These racist ranchers have been called 'Heroes' and 'True patriots' by Border Patrol, after having turned in hundreds of immigrants. Many of the immigrants have reported that they have been tortured and abused by these racist ranchers. CCIR and American Patrol claim they will occupy the border, if the U.S. military won't do it. They claim that Mexicans are 'invading the country', and that 'we should treat them like any other enemy trying to invade'. Help stop these racists! Show up to protest the rally of hate:

The Mighty Black Bloc were the only opposition to show, bringing an intimidating sheild line, and quite substantial beating sticks. When confronted by foolish police, demanding that everyone drop their sheilds and get on their knees many started to laugh. Two foolhardy police wearing no riot gear took out there retractable batons and pepper spray. And began attacking the line. One officer received a few blows before the Bloc initiated a tactical retreat. One member of the bloc tripped over an unforseen obstacle whilst retreating, his comrades defended him valiantly before he was tackled by one officer who received yet another thrashing for his foolish action. As the Bloc retreated, the police who had units on three sides of them did not pursue them, for fear of their might! Later the fallen comrade was releasd by the police, who obviously feared retrobution, the police even told him how impressed they were with the mighty sheild line, and shook with fear of any future confrontations with the Black Bloc.
Please study non-violence; there are many reasons that our greatest leaders have insisted on it. You need to see your actions in perspective and be responsible for them. Your words make you sound like a child playing tough, but your actions are serious - you are only inciting the police to bring more, and more powerful, weapons next time, and to want to use them. Innocent people can be hurt because of your actions. That's what we're accusing Bush, Sharon, etc. of. Get it? Violence as a response to violence is exactly THEIR excuse. There is no end to it. Think bigger, and more creatively. Peace is the way.
