February 5th Rally for Justice for Migrants and Immigrants
San Francisco Welcomes the Caravan for Migrants
The Bay Area Coalition to Fight the Minutemen held its first local action, a rally for Justice for Migrants and Immigrants on Sunday, February 5th at 24th St./Mission BART Plaza. 100-150 people greeted the Caravan for Migrants as it arrived from Fresno. The Caravan was heading from San Diego to Washington, DC.

The rally was in Spanish and English, with representatives of the Caravan, BACFM, MEChA de USF, and Mujeres Unidas y Activas speaking. A spontaneous march walked through the heart of the Mission, with chants and signs denouncing the border, racism and the INS/ICE and affirming the rights of migrants and immigrants. Protest organizers felt that the large turnout of corporate media outlets meant that actions like this one could be important in influencing the debate around immigrants' rights. imc_article.gif Report

An event announcement said that messages of the protest would include "NO! to anti-migrant legislation like HR 4437, NO! to the 4,000+ deaths on the border, and NO! to the US Border Patrol murder of Guillermo Martinez Rodriguez on December 30th, 2005." People at the rally said, "YES! to human rights – No One Is Illegal!" Anuncio bilingüe
