Emergency Mobilization: Palantir, Drop the ICE Contracts! Protest Rally

WHEN: Friday, August 16, 2019 at 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM PDT

WHERE: 542 High St in Downtown Palo Alto between University and Hamilton

When we said we’ll be back, we meant it! Join us for an immediate response rally, speakout, and action at Palantir Technologies this Friday at 12 PM.

Palantir provided the technology ICE used to steal 680 people during the largest single-state immigration enforcement action in US history last week. Hit the streets for an immediate emergency response rally in Palo Alto THIS FRIDAY 8/16 #DisarmICE.

We know that Palantir Technologies, listed as a “mission critical” software in uncovered ICE documents, is the tech backbone fueling the deportation, detention, and war machine -- and we REFUSE to be complicit. Palantir Tech makes workplace raids like the one that victimized 680 people and their families in Mississippi last week possible.

As the growing threat of fascist white supremacy emerges in deadly outbreaks all across the country, we must target and hold institutions that embolden and produce this violent escalation responsible. Palantir Technologies cannot continue business as usual in Palo Alto as asylum seekers die in ICE detention and children continue to sit in cages.

Palantir workers: You don’t have to be complicit. Stop enabling terror and #DropICEContracts NOW!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
One month ago, 600-800 community activists, immigrants, workers, youth, students, tech workers, and more united to Shut Down Palantir in the largest action at Palantir Technologies in history. Join our 7 Weeks to #DisarmICE campaign as we turn up the pressure on Palantir Tech to Drop the ICE Contracts before their September 25 deadline. This will be the first of several coordinated actions. It's all hands on deck -- Silicon Valley, Complicit No More!

We will meet at 542 High Street at 12 p.m. on Friday. Please arrive on time as our rally will have a program. We are in need of volunteers, speakers, and coalition partners. Interested in helping out or joining our coalition? If you or your group agrees with the call to #CloseTheConcentrationCamps, let us know. DM for questions or to join the coalition.

Nearest public trans is Caltrain. The event is about a 10 minute walk from "Palo Alto University Ave" stop. Be sure you get off at that stop as there are TWO different Palo Alto stops.
Parking downtown is tight...if you park in public (FREE) parking be aware that most places have a 2 hour limit. The parking garage at 542 High St. near our action is 3 hours, note that only first two floors open to the public. Also good place is Whole Foods 774 Emerson about 5 short blocks. Amazon/WF you owe us that much..

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
