Labor Day checkpoints / Retenes del Puente del Día de Trabajo (3-10/sep/2010) (tags)
Continúa sin interrupción el "Año del Retén." Sigue la lista de retenes anunciados por la prensa corporativa para este fin de semana y más adelante. Hay utilizar máxima precaución al salir manejando en estos fines de semana que comprenden días feriados como el Día del Trabajo. La policía muchas veces recibe financiamiento que proviene directamente de la gente más humilde que es negada el derecho de trasladarse en auto. Además, hay estafadores que prometen anunciar retenes pero resulta que cobran para bastante para el servicio. (Véase este artículo de una periodista del estado de Pennsylvania.) Siempre vale más contar con sus propios camaradas de sus comunidades.
The "Year of the Checkpoint" continues relentlessly. This weekend's list of media-announced checkpoints follows. Maximum precaution is recommended for those who drive, particularly on holiday weekends. Law enformcement agencies often receive monies that come directly from the poorest, who in many states are denied the right of automobility. Moreover, there are schemers who promise to alert immigrants and civil liberties defenders about checkpoints, who later reveal that they charge high rates for the service. (See this article by a Pennsylvania journalist.) It is always better to count on your own comrades from your communities.

¡Saludos pueblo! Lxs voluntarixs de Checkpoint response piden disculpas que no hemos podido publicar listas de retenes en estas últimas semanas. Nos ha faltado un poco la mano de obra. Si usted ve que esta es una labor útil y necesaria y tiene tiempo disponible (cerca de dos horas semanales), su asesoría podría ayudar a muchos individuos cuyo derecho de trasladarse automovilísticamente es negado por las leyees injustas de muchos estados a lo largo y ancho de los EE.UU. Favor de comunicarse con nosotros al correo electrónico firstname.lastname@example.org. En cambio, les traemos una buena noticia: Activistas de la ciudad de Baldwin Park han logrado detener la práctica del decomiso de vehículos en retenes en su comunidad. ¡Bravo y falicidades!
Greetings! The volunteers of Checkpoint response beg your pardon that we have not been able to publish checkpoint lists these last weeks. We have been a bit short-handed. If you see this as a valuable and necessary effort, and you have time available (about two hours weekly), your help can make sure this information reaches many individuals whose right to freedom of mobility is limited by unjust laws in many of the states throughout the country. Contact us at email@example.com. On the bright side, activists in the city of Baldwin Park have managed to halt the practice of car impoundment at checkpoints in their community. Congratulations!

If you would like to report a checkpoint announced in your local press or that you've seen in your community, or if you would like to receive text alerts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
