Millions To Be Spent On Border Wall

by builder123 Tuesday, Jul. 22, 2003 at 1:36 PM

Millions To Be Spent...
image1603.jpgn7phaz.jpg, image/jpeg, 556x335

“Right now the INS has plans to extend a border wall two hundred and fifty-five miles. A border wall; that will seal off seventy-five percent of the Arizona border and be fifteen feet tall… The border plans need to go away… Did anybody know that they are planning on basically connecting California to Texas, did anybody know? Seven-hundred and fifty million dollars, meanwhile we don’t have healthcare… meanwhile more and more people can’t even conceive of sending their kids to college…”

“We are having a human rights crisis on the border. Since the inception of OPERATION GATE KEEPER and all these other polices over two thousand immigrants Mexicanos, Central Americans, …, South Americans have died on our borders and it makes a horrible, horrible death. To die by the desert has been described by one doctor as being crushed by a large weight. That’s the way your organs shut down when you are denied water and you’re out there in the desert which is a 110 degrees… More and more we’re seeing women and children who are coming, trying to be with their families. Please join us in supporting the struggle against the wall, against the border plans.”

How Safe Does the Patriot Act Make You Feel?

“Here’s what’s important to remember. When John Ashcroft got that Patriot Act passed they said they were doing it to make you and me safer. They were doing it to make you and me safer. So when they read your check out list at the library do you feel safer? Do you feel safer when they read your messages to your friends on the internet? When the brother that spoke to you before lands in solitary confinement just because he’s a Muslim does that make you feel safer? Is there anything at all in that GOD DAMN PATRIOT ACT that makes you and I any safer or feel any safer?”

“Let’s be clear. Let’s be clear. The Patriot Act wasn’t passed to make you and I safe from terrorism. It was passed to make the terrorist who run this country safe from you and I!!! But they can’t be safe from you and I if you and I remember something very essential. It’s all well and good to talk about the same congress that passed the damn act in the first place is maybe going to do by way of tinkering with it. It’s all well and good when lawyers from the Lawyers Guild and ACLU and others go into court, Republican court and get defeated. We should keep trying to do that. But that’s not our salvation. That’s not what’s going to protect us from this Patriot Act. YOU AND I ARE ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN TRYANNY IN THIS COUNTRY AND FASCISM IN THIS COUNTRY AND THAT PATRIOT ACT. If we depend on the Bill of Rights the Republicans in congress won’t have any better luck this time then they had during the 50’s under McCarthyism…”

One Things Stands in Their Way – You!

One Things Stands in...
image2401.jpgbjkotz.jpg, image/jpeg, 451x445

“McCarthyism, the witch-hunt of the fifties was not defeated by the politicians. They weren’t defeated by the courts. They were defeated because there were enough people brave enough and tough enough and determined enough not to let their voices be silenced! So, we can defeat the patriot act … They want empire, they want world conquest and they know they can’t have it if there is an aroused opposition united in this country. That is our salvation, it is the world’s salvation, so together let’s remember. Keep speaking up, refuse to be quiet, refuse to be intimated, history is on our side. OUR DAY WILL COME. WE WILL PREVAIL! Thank-you.”
