Fri Jul 30 2010 (Updated 08/02/10) SB 1070 Protest in Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz Responds to SB 1070, Arizona's Criminalization of Immigrant Communities On July 29th, a diverse showing of Santa Cruz residents rallied at Depot Park and marched up Pacific Avenue to the town clock in protest of Arizona's Senate Bill 1070, a legislative act that is said to be the broadest and strictest anti-immigrant measure in decades. The demonstrators proclaimed solidarity with all communities resisting SB 1070, a law they say scapegoats migrants, and also voiced outrage to local police and sheriffs working with the federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) within Santa Cruz County neighborhoods and jails.

Demonstrators carried homemade signs with statements including, "Blame Wall Street, Not Immigrants" and "Destroy Every Border, Solidarity to Detainees & Prisoners, Free Them All!"
