Note: a SPANISH version follows the English
The Bay Area Coalition to Fight the Minutemen is mobilizing an action to oppose the Minutemen Project's rally to gather public support for their attempts to harass poor, undocumented border-crossers and to announce their support of a new initiative that would establish a state
border police in addition to the existing federal border patrol. This rally will take place in Sacramento on the Capitol steps on October 29th from 10am to 12:30pm.

It will feature the founder of the Minutemen Project, Jim Gilchrist, and the legislative sponsors of the California Border Police Initiative, amongst others. Governor Schwarzenegger has also been invited to speak.
The Minuteman Project is seeking legitimization from the public and state lawmakers to give them authority to patrol the border with guns and they want tax payers to pay for it. We at BACFM are outraged at the Minuteman Project's attempts to push their trigger happy, racist
ideologies that deny people their human rights to dignity, food, water, security and freedom of movement because of their class and skin color/nationality. We believe the Minutemen Project is a symptom of the problem of having borders between nations. BACFM is calling on all groups opposed to the Minuteman Project and the Governor's support of the Minutemen to gather at the Capitol Steps to tell them that their vigilanteism will not be tolerated on the state border or in the state legislature.

La coalición del Área De la Bahía para Luchar Contra los minutemen está movilizando una acción para oponer a la reunión de los Proyectó Minutemen para recolectar la ayuda pública para que sus intentos de acosar a los pobres quienes cruzan la frontera, indocumentad@s y para anunciar su apoyo de una nueva iniciativa que establecería a policía de una frontera del estado además de la patrulla de frontera federal existente. Esta reunión ocurrirá en Sacramento en los pasos del capitol de octubre 29no a partir el 10am a el 12:30pm. Se presentara el fundador del Proyecta Minutemen, Jim Gilchrist, y los patrocinadores legislativos de la frontera de la iniciativa de policia fronteriza de California, entre otras. Se ha invitado al gobernador Schwarzenegger también para que hable. El Proyecto Minuteman está buscando la legitimization del público y los legisladores del estado para darles autoridad para patrullar la frontera con los armas y ellos quisieran que los pagadores de los impuestos lo page.

Nosotr@s en BACFM estamos enfurecidos sobre los intentos del Proyecto Minuteman de empujar las ideologías racistas y violentas que niegan a gente sus derechos humanos a la dignidad, al alimento, al agua, a la seguridad y a la libertad movimiento debido a su clase y color de piel/ nacionalidad. Creemos que el Proyecto Minutemen es un síntoma del problema del tener fronteras entre las naciones. BACFM invita a todos los grupos opuestos al Proyecto Minuteman y a la apoyo del gobernador de los Minutemen para que se junten en los pasos del capitol para decirles que su vigilanteism no sera tolerado en la frontera del estado o en la legislatura de estado.
