MARCH ACROSS THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE
On July 29th, as SB 1070 is set to be implemented in Arizona, join thousands nation-wide & in NYC to raise our voices.
9:30am Gather at Cadman Plaza, Brooklyn
(take A/C trains to High Street, OR 2/3/4/5/R trains to Borough Hall)
10:00am March across Brooklyn Bridge
11:00am Press Conference & Rally at Foley Square in Manhattan
(take 4/5 to Brooklyn Bridge OR N/R/W to City Hall)
Why We Are Marching:
§ We stand in solidarity with the people of AZ against the inhumane and unjust law SB1070
§ We oppose Arizona-like laws that have spread throughout the nation,including right here in NYC
§ We condemn racial profiling in all forms as exemplified by SB1070 and moreover we denounce the racism that underlies these laws
1) We want humane legalization for all, not a criminalization that creates more Arizona’s through harsh enforcement policies like 287g, border militarization, and increased deportations.
2) We want an end to mass detentions, deportations, 287g, Secure Communities programs that criminalize immigrant people
