Memorial Day weekend checkpoints / Retenes del fin de semana del Día Memorial (28-31/may/2

Memorial Day weekend checkpoints / Retenes del fin de semana del Día Memorial (28-31/may/2010)

OJO: Ésta no es una lista comprensiva. Siempre hay más retenes que los que se anuncian. Es importante siempre tener mucho cuidado al salir manejando, especialmente las noches de fines de semana festivos. Si usted mira un retén, favor de hacer saber a su organización comunitaria y a los miembros de su comunidad. Si le sea posible, un plantón a una cuadra del retén es muy eficaz para avisar a los conductores sin licencia. Se recomienda que no salga a protestar o a avisar a solas sino en grupo, y que se equipen con cámaras para documentar cualquier abuso que ocurra. También es importante respetar las leyes que prohiben bloquear las aceras o pisar en la calle. Si tienen un organismo comunitario, muchas veces, se lo puede utilizar para exigir cambios de política a nivel municipal. Mientras tanto, ¡sigamos fuerte en resistencia!

CAUTION: This is not a comprehensive list. There are always more checkpoints than are announced. It is important to always take great care when driving, especially at night on holiday weekends. If you see a checkpoint, please alert your local community organization and the members of your community. If possible, a standing protest a block ahead of the checkpoint is very effective for alerting unlicensed drivers. It is not recommended to do this alone--a group is preferable, and equipment such as cameras is important to document any abuses that may occur. It is also important to respect the laws prohibiting blocking the sidewalk and standing in the street. If there is a community entity in your area, it can often be used to demand policy changes at the local level. Meanwhile, let's keep up the resistance!
