I-19 Shutdown in Tucson, Az- Spanish & English

by @z Friday, Jul. 30, 2010 at 9:54 AM

Communique from Freedom for Arizona. Other updates available on Az Indymedia.

*Partial justice is no justice at all! Despite Judge ruling to block parts of SB 1070, racial-profiling, raids, deportations and the militarization of the border will continue unchallenged. This is why today we shut down Interstate 19 (I-19)*

*Sigue en espa**ñol abajo:*

*DIRECT ACTION DISRUPTS ARIZONA RACISM!*


*Partial justice is no justice at all! Despite Judge ruling to block parts
of SB 1070, racial-profiling, raids, deportations and the militarization of
the border will continue unchallenged. This is why today we shut down
Interstate 19 (I-19)*


*July 29, 2010 Tucson, AZ—*On the morning that SB1070 is scheduled to take
effect in the state of Arizona and three days before Obama deploys 1,200
National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, a group of concerned
community members blocked traffic on I-19 south of Ajo Rd. in Tucson, AZ. A
blockade of tires covered in tar and broken glass were placed across both
southbound lanes along with a banner reading “Stop All Militarization! The
Border is Illegal!” This blockade is a temporary shutdown of the very road
that is used to deport people deemed “illegal” as well as a direct
disruption of the flow of capital. By blocking I-19 we have halted the
transportation of migrants and the profits Whack-n-hut and Corrections
Corporation of Amerikkka make by these inhumane acts of separating families,
communities and loved ones. This morning we interrupt the privatization of
the criminalization of people of color.

The State of Arizona ruthlessly disrupts and terrorizes the lives of
non-white communities on a daily basis. SB 1070 is yet another example of
how migrants and people of color are criminalized. Today’s action is a
declaration of resistance to the criminalization of affected communities and
the militarization of indigenous land.


Neither SB 1070 nor the deployment of National Guard troops to the border
do anything to address the root causes as to why people migrate. U.S.
economic policies and wars have displaced and impoverished millions of
people all over the world. Capital-driven policies, such as NAFTA, create
poverty. These policies and laws not only consume and exploit land and
people, but they also displace us from our homes, forcing us to migrate in
order to survive. If policymakers were serious about stopping “illegal
immigration,” they would end these capitalist exploitations and stop their
military invasions abroad.


We want an end to the militarization of indigenous land, I.C.E. raids,
deportations, the attacks on ethnic studies, violence against women and
queer people, the expansion of prisons and immigration detention centers,
empire, the border wall and the genocide at the Arizona-Sonora border that
has claimed the lives of over 153 people during the first 8 months of this
fiscal year alone.


Today we interrupt the flow of Arizona’s traffic to bring attention to the
following points:




-

*ABOLISH ALL OF SB 1070 AND OTHER ANTI-MIGRANT LAWS.*



-

*STOP ALL MILITARIZATION. NO NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS ON INDIGENOUS LAND.*



-

*BORDERS AND THE ARIZONA GOVERNMENT ARE ILLEGITIMATE.*



-

*NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL—THE ECONOMIC SYSTEM IS TO BLAME.*



-

*WE WANT RESPECT AND JUSTICE FOR ALL PEOPLE.*



We affirm our dignity and promote the well-being of all people. We stand
for solidarity, peace, self-determination and autonomy. We assert the rights
of all people everywhere to feel safe and live free of oppression and state
violence.

* **ACCIÓN DIRECTA INTERRUMPE EL RACISMO DE ARIZONA! *

*A pesar de la decisión de la Juez de bloquear componentes polémicos de la
medida SB 1070, el perfil racial, las redadas, deportaciones y la
militarización de la frontera continuaran sin ser desafiadas. Es por eso que
hoy bloqueo la Interestatal 19 (I-19).*


*29 de Julio 2010 Tucson, AZ—*En la mañana que la SB 1070 esta programada
para entrar en vigor en el estado de Arizona y tres días antes de que Obama
desplegue a 1,200 tropas de la Guardia Nacional, un grupo de miembros
comunitarios bloquearon el tráfico hacia en la I-19, sur de La Calle Ajo en
Tucson, AZ. Un bloqueo de llantas cubiertas con alquitrán y vidrio quebrado
fueron colocadas en los dos carriles que van hacia el sur. En la carretera
se ubicó un cartelón que declara “¡Alto a toda la Militarización! ¡La
Frontera es Ilegal!” Este bloqueo es un paro temporal de la misma carretera
que es usada para deportar a personas consideradas “ilegales”, al igual que
es una interrupción directa del flujo de los productos y mercancía. Al
interrumpir el tráfico de la I-19 hemos logrado suspender el transporte de
migrantes y las ganancias que empresas como Wackenhut y Corrections
Corporation of Amerikkka ganan al cumplir actos inhumanos como separar a
nuestras familias. Esta mañana nosotr@s interrumpimos la privatización de la
criminalización de las comunidades de color.

El Estado de Arizona sin piedad perturba y aterroriza a diario la vida ñde
nuestras comunidades. La SB 1070 es otro ejemplo de cómo los migrantes y las
personas de color somños criminalizadas. La acción de hoy es una declaración
de resistencia a la criminalización de nuestras comunidades y la
militarización de tierras indígenas.
Ni la SB 1070, ni el desplegue de tropas de la Guardia Nacional hacen nada
para combatir las causas de por qué la gente emigra. Las guerras y las
pólizas económicas de los EE.UU. han desplazado y empobrecido a millones de
personas en todo el mundo. Pólizas impulsadas por ganancias, como el Tratado
de Libre Comercio, causan la pobreza. Estas políticas y leyes no sólo
consumen y explotan la tierra y la gente, pero también nos desplazan de
nuestros hogares, obligándonos a emigrar para sobrevivir. Si los políticos
tuvieran la seriedad de frenar la "inmigración ilegal", pondrían fin a su
sistema económico que empobrece al mundo y acabarían con sus invasiones
militares en el extranjero.

Queremos poner un fin a la militarización de tierras indígenas, redadas,
deportaciones, los ataques a los estudios étnicos, la violencia contra las
mujeres y gente gay, lesbiana, bisexual, transgenero, la expansión de las
cárceles, los centros de detención, el imperio, el muro fronterizo y el
genocidio en la frontera entre Arizona y Sonora, que ha cobrado la vida de
más de 153 personas durante los primeros ocho meses de este año fiscal. *Hoy
interrumpimos el flujo del tráfico de Arizona para llamar a la atención los
siguientes puntos:*

-

*SUPRIMIR **COMPLETAMENTE LA SB 1070 Y OTRAS LEYES ANTI-MIGRANTES. *
-

*FRENAR** TODO LA MILITARIZACIÓN. FUERA TROPAS DE LA FRONTERA.*
-

*LAS **FRONTERAS Y EL GOBIERNO ARIZONENSE SON ILEGITIMOS. *
-

*NINGUN SER HUMANO ES ILEGAL—ESTE SISTEMA ECON**ÓMICO ES EL PROBLEMA.*
-

*QUEREMOS **RESPETO Y JUSTICIA PARA TODAS LAS PERSONAS.*

Afirmamos nuestra dignidad y promovemos el bienestar de todas las
personas. Estamos
a favor de la solidaridad, la paz, la auto-determinación y la autonomía.
Afirmamos el derecho de todos los pueblos del mundo a sentirse seguros y
vivir libres de la opresión y libres de la violencia estatal.
