First they came for the Muslims, Then they came for the immigrants... NOT THIS TIME! Stand Up Now with the Immigrants! Sunday, Feb 11, 2-4pm at the Women's Building in San Francisco, 3543 18th St. Join us for a panel and community discussion with: -Refuse Fascism -Alex U Inn, Grand Marshal San Francisco LGBT Pride -Lulu, immigrant activist -Others TBA Is it "too extreme" to call the Trump/Pence assault on immigrants the beginning of genocidal ethnic cleansing of Black and Brown people? What are we going to do about it? ETHNIC CLEANSING is the systematic forced removal of ethnic or religious groups from a given territory by a more powerful ethnic group, often with the intent of making it ethnically homogeneous. The forces applied may be various forms of forced migration (deportation, population transfer), intimidation, as well as mass murder and genocidal rape. GENOCIDE is intentional action to destroy a people (usually defined as an ethnic, national, racial, or religious group) in whole or in part. The current administration launched its attack on immigrants at the very start of Trump's campaign, and then with the Muslim Ban just days after coming into power. This ban was an undeniably racist move by a white supremacist. This was followed by moves to end DACA protections for 800,000 Dreamers (immigrants brought to the country as children.) We are seeing targeted detentions, deportations and threats against outspoken immigrants rights leaders, including Ravi Ragbir, Jean Montrevil, and Maru Mora-Villalpando. The Bay Area is facing threats of major ICE raids, specifically for being a sanctuary city/state. Temporary Protective Status (TPS) is ending for 200,00 El Salvadorians, 60,000 Haitians, 5,300 Nicaraguans, 1,000 Sudanese and likely 57,000 Hondurans. We are witnessing the racialization and assertion of naked white supremacy by this anti- immigrant program, referring to Black and Brown nations as "shitholes".
