Saying No to 1070 on the Day It Took Effect
Actions Held Against Arizona's Anti-Immigrant SB1070 Across Bay Area and U.S.
Protests took place on July 29th throughout Arizona, and around the U.S. and Mexico, against attacks on immigrants. These protests happened the day that Arizona's anti-immigrant law, SB1070, went into effect. Three hundred people demonstrated and spoke out at 24th and Mission in San Francisco. There were also actions in the Fruitvale district in Oakland and other cities throughout the Bay Area and beyond.

The day before, a federal judge blocked many of the most controversial parts of Arizona's immigration law from taking effect, delivering what many see as a last-minute victory to opponents of the crackdown.

In response to the partial injunction, Carlos Garcia of the Puente Movement stated, "There is no partial solution to hatred. We reject unconstitutional laws and racist immigration practices that profile U.S citizens, separate families, terrorize communities, and rob us of our basic humanity."
