Si Se Puede! Smash the Minutemen! Defend Immigrant Rights!
Counter protest to stop the Minutemen from getting stronger in the Bay Area!
Friday, June 16, from 4:30pm-7pm
(corner of Mowry Ave. and Fremont Blvd., 1 mile from the Fremont BART)
The East Bay Coalition for Border Security, an anti-immigrant organization that is trying to affiliate with the racist Minutemen, is attempting to gain a foothold in the Bay Area! We can stop them! We've marched, we've boycotted, now we have to protest the racists in our own backyard.
At their first rally on June 2, over a hundred people showed up to make sure their presence didn't go unchallenged. They are planning another action this coming Friday, and it's time for us to once again stop them from gaining any confidence or thinking for a minute that they can find support for their racism here in the Bay Area. They plan on rallying in Fremont every other Friday for the rest of the summer -- and we'll be there every step of the way to prevent them from growing and show them, and the whole Bay Area, that their kind of anti-immigrant racism isn't welcome here!
