INS protests Saturday!

ampere@swcp.nospamremove.com

Come protest the mass detentions performed by the INS this saturday! No more internment camps!

This is a copy of the email announcement passed by the AIA:

-------------
ALLIANCE OF IRANIAN AMERICANS

PROTEST THE LOS ANGELES INS USING REGISTRATION TO CONDUCT MASS ILLEGAL ARRESTS AND DISCOURAGING PEOPLE FROM REGISTERING AS REQUIRED BY LAW

Protest: The mass warrantless illegal arrests of Middle-Eastern males who showed-up for INS's mandatory registration program in Los Angeles in December

Why:
- The program is supposed to "register" people, not target them for mass illegal arrests;

- Thousands of men who did not register by December because they rightly feared illegal arrest or because of the chaos at the INS office deserve an extension to register;

- The thousands of men required to register in January- February, 2003, should not again face mass arrests.

- The men arrested in December who are still detained should be quickly released on reasonable bails.
- Los Angeles appears to be the only city which used the registration program as a vehicle to make mass illegal arrests;

When: Saturday, January 4, 2003, Noon to 1 PM

Place: INS Los Angeles District Office
Federal Building
300 N. Los Angeles Street
Los Angeles, Ca. 90012
