MINUTEMEN are patrolling AZ border, armed with various weapons, and have already "captured" as much as 141 people. WE MUST NOT BE SILENT DURING THIS! ORGANIZE NOW!

6 REASONS TO OPPOSE MINUTEMENT'S & ALL RACIST SCAPEGOATING OF UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS:
a) Indigenous people of Aztlan--including Mexico and US., have always inhabited this land, the REAL immigrants are the Eurpopeans.
b) The U.S. signed a treaty upon capturing bordering states from Mexico that PROMISES the borders will remain OPEN to Mexican citizens. WHO'S ILLEGAL NOW???
c) The U.S. Economy is DEPENDENT upon [slave] labor from undocumented workers. Undocumented workers are not STEALING any job from the White man. They are working for far below min. wage, subhuman working standards, and many other violations that would not apply were they protected by US citizenship. The US was FOUNDED UPON SLAVERY, and continues to be dependent. It has simply undergone some "cosmetic surgery" so it no longer has such an obvious APPEARANCE of slavery: brown skinned, spanish / indigenous spkg, disempowered humans forced to work in subhuman conditions in order to survive.
d) NAFTA / FREE TRADE / WTO is *DESTROYING* the hope of indigenous / Mexican / Central Americans to sustain themselves on their own land as they have for centuries by buying out every local form of sustainability and land, patenting their recipes and crops, etc. MANY families and workers are LEAVING BEHIND their families and homes in desperate search for work to continue to support their families due to the damage the THE UNITED STATES has brought to their country and economy.
NAFTA / NORTH AMERICAN FREE TRADE AGREEMENT == everything "they" [Mexico & beyond] have is OURS [U.S.] for FREE!!
e) Racist scapegoating of any kind is historically repeated time and again, each time with revisions to who they're picking on. Hitler's persecution of the Jews rings HAUNTINGLY similar to that of the Minutemen, as well as all other anti-Mexican / anti-immigrant conservative.
f) The wealth of the United States HAS BEEN BUILT upon the US INTERVENTION in Latin America that has enabled to supply OUR COUNTRY with THEIR RESOURCES.
(Shit. Take a fucking history class.)
WE MUST NOT SIT IN WHATEVER PRIVILEGE WE HAVE SILENTLY while this war escalates towards the true LEGAL residents of this land.
Hold protests! Block Traffic w/signs! Candlelight vigils! Graffiti against the system! Public Forums!
TAKE ACTION NOW.
*BEWARE OF IGNORANT LINES given by those who profit from raping the Americas and beyond.
"I just haven't been the same since that house fell on my sister" [popular Northern Sun bumper sticker]
or, "I haven't been the same since my 6-month old child died from polluted drinking water that US corporations left in our water supply"
or, "I dunno know, but, I think I'm having a harder time feeding my family since the US via NAFTA took one of Mexico's biggest crop (Maiz / Corn) and made it into their biggest IMPORT into Mexico. Now, I can't seem to sell my corn for even the cost it takes to grow it."
or, "I haven't quite felt the same since they built a Wal-Mart Supercenter in the center of My Peoples' Cultural Heritage--at Teohtihuacan".
