5/18: Speak Out against Arizona’s racist immigration laws!

Come join the Student Worker Coalition and the International Socialist Organization for a Speak Out against Arizona’s racist immigration laws!

Tuesday May 18th, on the HUB lawn, University of Washington 11:00am-1:00pm

Arizona’s State Bill 1070 will have disastrous impacts on immigrants and their communities. It makes it illegal for documented and undocumented immigrants to not carry their papers, and allows police to stop and question anyone “suspected” of illegal immigration. SB 1070 enshrines racial profiling into law enforcement. To add insult to injury the Arizona Governor signed a law that will ban Ethnic studies programs from any educational institution that receives state money. This is an attempt to bury the histories of people of color and further sanction the kind of racism and vitriol that we have seen recently, like the attack by the Seattle Police on a local Latino man recently.

In 2006 a similar law at the federal level was defeated by mass demonstrations and protests. Help us talk to the UW community about Arizona’s law and about immigration issues in the United States. Join the ISO and SWC on the HUB Lawn on Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to speak out against this law. We welcome anyone to share their thoughts and stories relating to these issues.
