Add your voice. Tell President Obama, the Department of Justice, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the City of Chicago, and its Police Department that we know our rights and will defend them.
March 10th is the 6th anniversary of the massive march for immigrant rights that launched the national movement. Now those mostly Latino communities are facing up to 400,000 deportations annually. The Black and Latino communities are relentlessly targeted by the police and courts. Arab and Muslim communities are targeted by government policies driven by the so-called “war on terror.” Repression of First Amendment freedoms of speech and assembly have seen 6000 arrests of Occupy Wall Street protesters, and anti-war and international solidarity activists such as Carlos Montes are being criminalized.
