ALTO ARIZONA! National Day of Action Against SB 1070

Filed under: Articles, Solidarity — Barnard-Columbia ISO @ 11:43 am

Last week in Harlem, we hosted a meeting entitled “Immigrant Rights are Civil Rights” with radical sportswriter Dave Zirin and civil rights activist Yusef Salaam. Although we didn’t get to post it here on the blog, rest assured we’ll soon be helping to put on a meeting for anyone who wants to do local actions that help the campaign to BOYCOTT ARIZONA!

In the meantime, this Saturday is a National Day of Action against SB 1070. Although there isn’t a big protest or action planned for NYC, tens of thousands of people are converging on Arizona to protest the racist law as I write this. Socialist Worker online published a series of articles about the boycott movement and some of the questions that have come up already in the struggle. Check it out!

DYING IN OUR BACKYARD
Even before the latest set of anti-immigrant laws, Arizona was ground zero for the federal government’s deadly war on the undocumented.
