STOP THE INS RAIDS AT THE AIRPORT ! RALLY THURS .MARCH 28 AT 11 AM
The INS is conducting mass raids of immigrants at LAX and in other locations
around the Southland, sowing panic and terror among thousands of people.
Eyewitnesses report that there is clearly racial profiling involved, and that
people are being chased, endangered and injured. People being taken away can
include both undocumented immigrants and permanent legal residents who are
not carrying their green card on them, or who have past convictions.
This Thursday, the immigrant community and all people for justice will
respond with a
rally (and press conference) beginning at 11AM at the Los Angeles
International Airport, at the Encounters Restaurant building, followed by a
march. The goal is for many hundreds of people to attend, and a large
coalition of immigrant rights groups, trade unions, and faith based and other
social justice groups are mobilizing on an emergency basis for this important
protest. Just a few of the organizations involved include: CHIRLA,
Metropolitan Alliance, KIWA, the Garment Workers Center, the Interfaith
Coalition, HERE, SEIU Local 1877 (Justice for Janitors) , CARECEN, Hermandad,
MALDEF, and many, many others. Your presence is needed too!
Stay tuned for updates between now and Thursday, including CHIRLA' s press
release. For more info: CHIRLA 213-353-1333
Note: Permits are being sought for this demonstration; there will not be
civil disobedience at this event. Arrests at the airport are federal.
--Sow Panic in the Population
-- Target hardworking people who contribute to the economy and the community
--Are punitive, inhumane and discriminatory--they violate basic civil rights,
civil liberties and human rights
--Are politically motivated
--Do not change basic migration patterns
STOP THE RAIDS NOW!
