Special public forum on immigrant rights:
Build a movement to fight back!
Stop government and Minutemen attacks!

Karina García is the political chair of the Chicano Caucus at Columbia University. On Oct. 4, she helped lead a large protest against Jim Gilchrist, co-founder of the anti-immigrant Minuteman project. She and other students went onstage with anti-racist banners while Gilchrist was speaking and were attacked by Minutemen thugs. Faced with overwhelming opposition Gilchrist terminated his speech.

Days later, Karina Garcia and Gilchrest squared off on a nationally broadcast debate on Democracy Now. Gilchrist took off his microphone and stormed out of the studio in the first minutes of the debate. Although they were physically attacked by Minutemen on October 4, it is the anti-racist protesters who have been targeted by the media, university officials, and NYC Mayor Bloomberg. Karina Garcia is telling the story of the anti-Minutemen protestors and the struggle against fascism and racism. She has been speaking to students and communities and in the mass media. All over the country people are learning about this struggle and showing their support for the students at Columbia University.
