Milwaukee community condemns Arizona's racist law SB1070

Students, workers and community members will protest against Arizona Senate Bill 1070, as the racist law goes into effect on July 29th.

Milwaukee, WI – July 29th, 2010 – A coalition of community organizations including Voces de la Frontera, Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano/a de Aztlan (M.E.Ch.A), Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and The New Sanctuary Movement, will protest Arizona’s racist law, SB1070 this Thursday, beginning at Zeidler Park (3rd & Michigan) at 11:00am.

July 29th has been named a national day of action of non-compliance against Arizona’s SB1070 & HB2281. Marquette student and MEChA organizer Anahí Sánchez said “We’re protesting because we’re tired of the injustices towards Latino’s and immigrants. We can no longer sit back and watch these racist attacks against communities of color, whether it’s in Arizona or Wisconsin. We will not allow a law like SB1070 in Wisconsin!”

We demand that the Obama administration and congress put an end to all collaboration of programs of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) & police, which contributes to the criminalization of hard-working people of Milwaukee and the United States. We demand an end to the unjust deportations, an end to the separation of families, and an end to workplace raids. We do not support any form of racism, whether it is social or institutionalized. Included in our demands are the passage of just and humane immigration policy that does not criminalize immigrants and the passage of the DREAM Act.

We will not comply with racist laws like SB1070. We will stand up against hate and racism on behalf of those who have been intimidated to stay silent or who live in fear. We stand in solidarity with the people affected by this cruel law; they are not alone in this battle for justice.

Pass CIR & DREAM Act Now!
Boycott Racism! Say No to Arizona's SB2070 & HB2281
