Demonstrate against the SOS/Minuteman supporters

by Duane Roberts Friday, Mar. 03, 2006 at 2:34 PM

We're asking that activists from all over Southern California come out this Saturday to help monitor and demonstrate against the SOS/Minuteman supporters that are harrassing the day laborers in Lake Forest.

Hello everybody:

We're asking that activists from all over Southern

California come out this Saturday to help monitor and

demonstrate against the SOS/Minuteman supporters that

are harrassing the day laborers in Lake Forest.

Although between 20 and 30 SOS/Minuteman types came

out last Saturday, the day laborers were better

organized and more assertive in defending their

rights. Some of their families came out in support.

In addition to this, several Lake Forest residents,

including a number of young teenagers, told the crowd

of SOS/Minuteman that had assembled to quit bugging

the day laborers and go home.

Activists also kept a close eye on the behavior of

Orange County Sheriff's Deputies who patrolled the

area to ensure they did not trample on the First

Amendment rights of the day laborers.

At a prior demonstration, Sheriff's Deputies allegedly

threatened day laborers and supporters with arrest for

engaging in constitutionally protected activities.

That didn't happen last Saturday.

In fact, Sheriff's Deputies appeared to have been

irked by the fact that SOS/Minuteman supporters kept

calling them up via cellphone asking them to come out

to protect them from non-existent threats.

We're expecting the same number of SOS/Minuteman to be

out in Lake Forest this weekend. So if you can come

and support the day laborers, it would be deeply

appreciated. The more people the better.

WHEN: Saturday, March 4, 2006

8 am - 12 noon

WHERE: 25262 Jeronimo Road

Lake Forest, California

day laborers have had to put up with in Lake Forest
