Shut Down California’s Concentration Camps: Abolish ICE!
On August 8th 2020, people from all over the state including San Diego, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area, will be converging on detention and state centers. Here in the Bay Area, we will be marching from Justin Herman Plaza to the ICE building to make the following demands:
To save lives, Gov. Newsom and AG Becerra must immediately end ALL California cooperation with ICE. We demand that Gov. Newsom support the demands of detained migrants, who are organizing across California with hunger strikes, and community organizations:
1. Stop all transfers from California prisons and jails to ICE detention
2. Stop all expansion of detention centers in our state
3. Lead an independent investigation and hold detention centers accountable for putting lives at risk during the pandemic.
At the federal level, we are also fighting to Abolish ICE, Close the Camps and #FreeThemAll: ICE must release all detained people, starting with the most vulnerable to COVID. While decarceration takes place, ICE and private prison corporations must provide safe [housing], protective gear, and medical attention.
Here is the full statewide call to action page: BIT.LY/SHUTDOWNCAMPSCA

We ask that everyone wear a mask and practice physical distancing of at least 6 feet during the action. We want to minimize the spread of Covid-19, which has disproportionately affected communities of color. We will have medical professionals at this action to help support everyone's safety!
