Event Type Speaker
This coming Tuesday, June 20th at 7pm, 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.

Come 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.
