Stop Family Detention Roadside Rally
Date(s) - 06/30/2018
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
As the dust settles, it has become apparent that the hastily crafted executive order halting family separations will now force ICE to hold entire families in overcrowded, dismal internment facilities for months on end. When we said we wanted to halt family separations, this is not remotely what any of us had in mind.
However, it does show that public pressure is working. We must settle for nothing less than the end of “zero tolerance” policies and irreversible commitment to restoring justice under the Constitution to all immigrants.
Innocent kids do NOT belong in jail under any circumstances, this war on immigrant children needs to STOP!
A new action has been scheduled at the southeast corner of the Mono and Greenley intersection. We’ve gathered our forces, now it’s time to take our message to a wider population and say with one voice: Sonora cannot stand for this egregious violation of our American values!
Important notes: Warm forecast for Saturday, please dress accordingly and stay hydrated. Do NOT park on privately owned vacant lot immediately adjacent to corner. No curbside parking or stopping at ANY time. Please remember: impeding passing foot traffic, deliberately interrupting vehicular traffic, or entering/interfering with a business to protest is strictly forbidden by federal law. Everyone participating in this Event will be required to abide by all applicable laws and lawful orders of authorities. This Event will be nonviolent and will not involve any civil disobedience or other violation of law. Feel free to make and bring your own signs, but please refrain from displaying profanity on signs or clothing. Those who fail to do so may be asked to leave.
