#NoKidsInCages rally at 9th Circuit Courthouse
Date Thursday June 27
Time 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorMichael Petrelis
Location Details
Federal Courthouse
95 - 7th Street at Mission
This Thursday, June 27, starting at 12 noon, we are holding a press conference outside the 9th Circuit Court to denounce the Trump Administration denying migrant children soap and sleep in U.S. detainment centers including concentration camps.

The names of the children who died in American custody will be read aloud and written in chalk on the sidewalk. This is the court determining if the cruel and inhumane Trump policies are constitutional.

We will assemble two wire cages to symbolize the plight of infants and children separated from their families. Inside the cage will be dolls representing the detained toddlers and aluminum foil serving as blankets.

The courthouse is located at 95 - 7th Street at Mission Street.

Our message is #NoKidsInCages.

Thank you Michael, for stepping up resistance to the horrors of American genocide.

As Congress dithers, children are dying. I plan to bring posters of six of those children that Refuse Fascism will honor in the PRIDE parade. We'd love to have you join us, with your cage tableau if it is transportable, on Sunday.

Again, thanks for doing this; I'll promote in my circles,

Curt
