DEFEND IMMIGRANT AND CIVIL RIGHTS!

Dear Friends:

This coming Tuesday evening, June 20th, Shanti Sellz and Daniel
Strauss -- the two college students arrested last summer by the U.S.
Border Patrol for giving aid to immigrants in the Arizona desert --
will be speaking at the hall of the American Friends Service
Committee in San Francisco. Daniel and Shanti face a 15-year prison
sentence for their humanitarian aid efforts. Their case goes to trial
October 3, 2006.

Many of you contacted us to say you couldn't make it to their first
San Francisco meeting at the Unitarian Universalist Church last
Saturday. Well, here's another opportunity to listen to these
courageous No More Deaths coalition activists and to hear how we can
fight back against the literal war zone on the U.S.-Mexican border,
where more than 4,000 immigrants have died over the past 10 years
since Operation Gatekeeper was enacted.

Daniel and Shanti need your support for their defense campaign and
for the ongoing work of the No More Deaths coalition.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 20th at 7 p.m. at the AFSC Hall in
SF, 65 Ninth St. (between Mission and Market St., 2 blocks from Civic
Center BART & MUNI).

Daniel and Shanti's Bay Area tour has been endorsed by AFSC, La Raza
Centro Legal, San Francisco Labor Council, SF Living Wage Coalition,
Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace & Justice, San Francisco Unitarian
Universalist Social Justice Ministry, East Bay Jobs With Justice, SF
Gray Panthers, San Francisco Peace and Freedom Party, and The
Organizer Newspaper.

No Human Being is Illegal!
Humanitarian Aid Is Never a Crime!
