April 14: Protest ICE Raids (Tacoma)
21 Apr 2007 01:38 GMT
This Saturday, April 14th, we have an opportunity to stand up against the wave of ICE raids, detentions, and deportations that is sweeping the country. Activists from Bellingham have organized a protest at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, 1623 E. J Street, on Saturday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
In February Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided a UPS facility in Auburn and detained 51 workers. This is part of a nationwide campaign to terrorize immigrants and force them to accept repressive immigration legislation that will reduce immigrants to the status of indentured servants. It is time to confront these police state tactics and call for an end to all ICE raids.
We will be car pooling from Seattle to Tacoma on Saturday morning. Meet at: New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave. S. (cross street is S. Hudson St.) Carpools will leave at Noon.
For more information or to confirm that you are coming, call 206-722-2453.
