Stop the Raids NOW! Massive rally at ICE Headquarters!

Friday, October 31, 2008
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Event Type:
Vicente Garcia
Location Details:
630 Sansom - ICE Building


Hundreds of high school and college age youth, from Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, San Francisco, San Jose, San Lorenzo, San Leandro, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, and Hayward gather with community members and families to denounce the atrocities committed against the immigrant communities by Immigration Custom Enforcement (ICE). This Halloween the festivities are left aside in order to shed light on the attacks that have been happening against immigrant and working class communities in these so called "sanctuary cities." Young people take the fore front in order to say "Enough is Enough" – we need an immediate End to all ICE Raids, We need to shut down all detention Centers and we need to have REAL Sanctuary Cities.

During this time of election, immigrant families have been silently suffering repression, intimidation and constant targeting by ICE. Since neither presidential candidate wants to talk about this issue, young people from all over the Bay Area have united across cities and across color lines to denounce the inhumane treatment of im/migrant communities and to ensure that the people's voice is heard.
Friday the 31st, yes, All Hallows' Eve ;)

10am: gather for blessings w/ danza azteca, the legendary radical community organizer and author Betita Martinez and others, inspiring elders and youth, music, poetry & hip-hop, agit-prop theater, skull face painting, banner and sign making, food and more at the Ferry park in San
Francisco. (Embarcadero BART)

11:30: Lively Funeral March to the Northern California Headquarters of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) @ 630 Sansome (near Washington).

Everywhere people are fleeing to escape poverty, famine and wars.
