(en) US, [LA-Anarchists] 10 29 rally vs Minutemen in Sacramento, California

Date Tue, 18 Oct 2005 12:05:01 +0200

BACFRally Against the Minutemen! Disrupt the Minutemen's Rally!
Saturday, October 29, 10am On the steps of the State Capitol, Sacramento, California
The Bay Area Coalition to Fight the Minutemen is mobilizing an action to
oppose the Minuteman Project's rally to gather public support for their
attempts to harass poor, undocumented border-crossers and to announce
their support of a new initiative that would establish a state border
police in addition to the existing federal border patrol. This rally will
take place in Sacramento on the Capitol steps on October 29th from 10am
to 12:30pm. It will feature the founder of the Minuteman Project, Jim
Gilchrist, and the legislative sponsors of the California Border Police
Initiative, amongst others. Governor Schwarzenegger has also been
invited to speak.

The Minuteman Project is seeking legitimization from the public and state
lawmakers to give them authority to patrol the border with guns and they
want taxpayers to pay for it. We at BACFM are outraged at the Minuteman
Project's attempts to push their trigger-happy, racist ideologies that
deny people their human rights to dignity, food, water, security and
freedom of movement because of their class and skin color/nationality.
believe the Minuteman Project is a symptom of the problem of having
borders between nations.

BACFM is calling on all groups opposed to the Minuteman Project and the
Governor's support of the Minutemen to gather at the Capitol Steps to
them that their vigilanteism will not be tolerated on the state border
in the state legislature
