Checkpoint response is pleased to announce that we now have an e-mail address! Please address inquiries, checkpoint-related announcements, and comments to noretenes@gmail.com.

Checkpoint response se agrada en anunciar que ¡ya tenemos un correo electrónico! Favor de dirigir preguntas, anuncios relacionados con retenes, y comentarios a noretenes@gmail.com.

We will also be doing our best to announce checkpoints in other parts of the country, so if you hear about one, please let us know through the e-mail.

También estaremos haciendo nuestro mejor para anunciar retenes proyectados para otras partes del país, así es que si te enteras de uno, favor de avisarnos por media de correo electrónico.

In addition to announcing this weekend's checkpoints (the ones we were able to find about, anyway), we will also be bringing you a few updates from the struggle against checkpoints.

En adición a los retenes planeados para este fin de semana (los de que hemos podido enterarnos, por supuesto), también estaremos actualizándoles sobre la lucha contra los retenes.

Checkpoints this wee...

In the checkpoint-plagued community of Escondido, California, the police will not only continue to hold checkpoints, but will actually increase their use of the military tactic despite efforts of activist organizations and the ACLU. Read more here: http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/jan/26/motorist-checkpoints-will-continue-expand/

En la comunidad de Escondido, California, azotada por retenes, la policía no sólamente continuará con esta táctica militar, sino también aumentará su utilización de la misma, a pesar de esfuerzos de activistas comunitarios y la ACLU. Para mayor información: http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/jan/26/motorist-checkpoints-will-continue-expand/

And here in Los Angeles, community activists have spearheaded an effort to standardize text message announcements of checkpoints and migra/ICE/Border Patrol raids. Hopefully this will alleviate some of the confusion and duplication surrounding those texts we all get. Here is their statement:

In the midst of the holiday season, since “El Dia de La Virgen” (Dec 12), the South East, South Central and South East LA communities have experienced an aggressive intensification of security, DUI, and immigration check points that have resulted in multiple arrests, costly confiscations of vehicles, and non-sobriety related fines. These attacks and intimidation tactics, ironically, come after the recent introduction of an immigration reform bill (CIR A.S.A.P.) by Luis Gutierrez (D-IL). We are demanding freedom in our communities and calling everyone to be alert, document, and spread the word if you come across a check point. Please call 323-331-1334 and text the following information:

CONFIRMED (or UNCONFIRMED) Check Point (or I.C.E. Raid)!
DATE(MM/DD)
TIME (00:00A/P)
LOCATION (Street/cross street)


Spread the Word!


Aquí en Los Ángeles, activistas comunitarios encabezaron un esfuerzo para estandarizar anuncios mediante mensajes de text referente a retenes y redadas de la migra. Se espera que con el nuevo formato, se aliviará un poco la confusión y duplicación en torno a los textos que todos y todas recibimos. A continuación, su declaración:

Durante la temporada navideña, desde el Día de la Virgen (12 de diciembre), las comunidades del sureste, y sur centro de Los Ángeles han vivido una agudización agresiva de retenes policiacos y de la migra que han resultado un numerosas detenciones, encautaciones de vehículos, y multas no-relacionadas a la embriaguez. Estos ataque y tácticas de intimidación vienes, irónicamente, después de la introducción de una propuesta para reforma migratoria (se requiere una reforma justa e integra lo más antes posible) por el congresista Luis Gutiérrez, Demócrata de Illinois. Exigimos libertad en nuestras comunidades y pedimos que todos y todas estén alertos y alertas, que documenten y corran la voz si se encuentran con un retén. Favor de llamar al 323-331-1334 y textear la siguiente información:

CONFIRMADO (o NO CONFIRMADO, según el caso) Retén (o redada de la migra, etcétera)
FECHA (MM/DD)
HORA (00:00A/P)
LUGAR (Calle/Intersección)


¡Corran la voz!
