If one has been paying attention to the laws that are getting passed over the last few years we can see the telltale signs that we are getting closer and closer to such a scenario. Not only is this government setting up the legal framework for martial law, but they are also setting up the policing apparatus and infrastructure to carry it out.

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.

Following the July 8th police beatings of anti-Minutemen protestors and the subsequent giddy elation displayed by the Minutemen and SOS in the face of such violence, certain factors have come into play which highlight the authoritarian nature of Save Our State and the fact that some of the rank-and-file may get burned by the leadership very soon.

MinuteKlan Arrives In Washington DC, Met with protests (tags)

We came to protest the Minutemen, racism and fascism AND to support immigration in all its forms, no one ever is illegal. We came to denounce the minutemen and stand in solidarity with immigrants. What we got was a vibrant protest that put protesters inches away from Gilchrist, a failed minuteman rally, and a faceoff of good versus sheer evil (pro-immigrant, anti-racist locals versus racist minutemen, klansmen and nazis). Click on the link directly below, to view a video of the DC Minuteklan protests. This is the story of the demonstration against the Minutemen National Caravan as it landed in Washington DC.

Minutemen - Enforcers of Death on the Border & Promoters of Racist Hatred (tags)

By Luciente Zamora

The U.S. government is enforcing, and trying to pass even worse laws that force immigrants even deeper into the shadows by criminalizing undocumented people and denying them basic services.

Alongside this increasing, inhumane repression, the powers-that-be are promoting an anti-immigrant, nativist, fascist movement throughout the U.S. This vigilante movement is persecuting and hunting down immigrants along the border region, and has also been organizing forces in major cities like Los Angeles and Chicago and counties throughout Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Among this fascist nativist movement, the Minutemen have emerged as a prominent vigilante group that has been gaining notoriety and legitimacy as expert guests on reactionary news channels like Fox and other mainstream media outlets like CNN.

Enrique Morones, whose group the Border Angels puts water through the desert for migrants, has been actively speaking out against the Minutemen and other vigilantes like Ranch Rescue, American Patrol, the Barnett Brothers, among others. Morones says that although the Minutemen are not an organization of thousands, as they often claim, the Minutemen and the increased militarization of the border are responsible for an increase in migrant deaths.

In a phone interview with Revolution, Morones said, “Before Operation Gatekeeper, which was implemented in 1994, there was one estimated death along the border every month. Since then, an estimated 4,000 people have died trying to cross the border.” He told Revolution that 4,000 bodies have been accounted for, but that the realistic number might be considerably higher, “possibly as much as 10,000 deaths.”

It is difficult to measure the exact numbers because while some skeletons and scattered bones are found in the desert, many of the deceased bodies are never found.

The Minutemen are really ramping up their media campaign, including a major rally in Sacramento to promote their California Border Patrol initiative, an attempt to further militarize the border and our communities at the cost of more people's lives. Recently, they testified before congress ( http://www.dakotavoice.com/200510/20051018_6.html ) to ask that congres declare a state of emergency along the entire border. Clearly, they want more policing of our lives and communities, they want unrestricted fascism on the border. Still, resistance to the Minutemen ( http://www.deletetheborder.org/ ) has been powerful and is still growing, all across North America.

Chris Simcox, the co-founder of the Minuteklan Project, was the featured speaker at this meeting, and that was what prompted so many people to come out.
