FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE-
Protest Against the Repeal of SB60 to be held December 12 in Costa Mesa
On Friday, December 12, 2003, a coalition of Orange County human rights advocates will converge upon Assemblymember Ken Maddox's Costa Mesa office to protest against the repeal of SB60. SB60 would have allowed all eligible applicants to obtain a CA driver's license, regardless of their immigration status. Ken Maddox voted against SB60, along with Orange County Republican Assemblymembers Lynn Daucher, Tom Harman, Todd Spitzer, Patricia Bates, John Campbell, and Senators Dick Ackerman, Ross Johnson and Bill Morrow. Our elected officials must hear loud and clear: We will not tolerate institutional racism and the systematic denial of human dignity and livelihood to any human beings, regardless of their immigration status. Save SB60 now!
The protest will begin at 5:00 P.M. Ken Maddox's office is located at 1503 South Coast Drive, Suite 205, in Costa Mesa. The crowd will gather in front of the building. This will be a peaceful demonstration, in solidarity with the economic strike to be held concurrently on December 12. Participants are requested not to go to work, school, or buy anything that day as part of a statewide effort to shutdown the CA economy.
