A Radical Proposal: Open the U.S.-Mexico Border (tags)
That's what immigrant rights activist David Schmidt called for at a September 21 meeting of Activist San Diego. Originally called to discuss the closure of Friendship Park along the U.S.-Mexico border, the meeting expanded into a consideration of border issues in general. Schmidt and his better-known co-speaker, Enrique Morones of Border Angels and Marcha Migrante, both questioned why under NAFTA and similar “free trade” agreements, capital, commerce and corporations are allowed to move freely across national boundaries — while workers are trapped inside their home countries and routinely exploited for the greater profits of capital. If business is free to locate wherever it wants, workers should be too, they said.

Immigrants Neglected and Abused During San Diego Wildfires (tags)
It is important that people know that the government’s response to this has not been as benevolent as the news media has made it out to be. For immigrant families, this is in no way an ‘anti-Katrina.’ Immigrants in San Diego county are being neglected by emergency evacuators, put in danger by their employers, treated rudely by authorities and volunteers, refused aid at evacuation sites, and racially profiled by police and deported by the Border Patrol.

VIVA NATIONAL CITY (tags)
Below is a shout out from San Diego area activists to join them at 12:00 p.m. this Saturday, as the mayor of National City proclaims that immigrants are welcome in their city. The organizers of the sanctuary movement have asked that all supporters of immigrants' rights come to National City and defend the right of people to live without harrassment and fear of police interference in their daily lives. The Minutemen, led by Jim Gilchrist, have vowed to protest this event with a major Southern California mobilization of 400 Minutemen to the streets of little National City. Their intent, as always, is to provoke hatred and racism through the media; if human rights supporters can mobilize to defend National City, the Minutemen will be exposed.
