Latino Activists Demonstrate in Solidarity with Children Detained by U.S., Killed in Gaza
Latino activists in solidarity with Palestinians marched down Market Street in San Francisco on August 2 in a unity call for saving the children of Central America who are languishing at the US-Mexican border, as well as the children dying in Gaza. Movimiento por la Reunifacacion Familiar organizers reached out to everyone to join together in a march chanting, “No mas ninos deportados nuestros ninos son sagrados!” “No more children deported; our children are sacred.”

After speakers were heard at 16th and Mission, the protesters took the street and marched to 24th and Mission for another rally. People were then given chalk and invited to join in an art project, drawing stick figures on the sidewalk to represent the immigrant children detained at the border, as well as the names of the 300 children killed in Gaza.

Patricia Jackson writes: "SF is receiving hundreds of children seeking refuge from US-created violence in Central America and Mexico. San Francisco is a sanctuary city and we need to take action to protect the children and call for an end to deportation of children who come here to escape violence...Many children trapped at the border are fleeing threats of death from the Drug Wars in their countries. Drug dealers force young children at gunpoint to join their gang. They are refugees and should be protected as that status. Other children flee for the U.S. to be with their families. All these children are refugees and should be protected."
