[RED DEMOCRATICA] Join the National Day of Action Against Border Militarization


Latin American Working Group
Promote Justice for Mexico and the Borderlands

Raise the alarm on border militarization by joining the online photo petition!

Dear Supporter,                  
No question, it is overkill.  The “border surge” included in immigration legislation passed by the Senate would create one of the most militarized border zones in the world.  Defense contractors may be pleased with this lucrative boondoggle, but communities from San Diego to Brownsville are raising the alarm that piling more fencing, drones, surveillance equipment, and Border Patrol agents would jeopardize the rights and quality of life for millions in the border region.  This Wednesday, July 17th, LAWG joins with the Border Network for Human Rights and partners in sending a unified message to Congress to halt the militarization of the border.

Will you join the July 17th National Day of Action Against Border Militarization?

Politicians from both parties have promoted a distorted image of the border region by highlighting violence, chaos and mayhem that does not exist on the U.S. side of the border, a distraction from crucial efforts to forge a pathway to citizenship and keep families together.  On July 17th, communities from along the border region and beyond are taking a stand to say no to border militarization

Check out how you can join with your community on the National Day of Action Against Border Militarization on Wednesday, July 17th.

Don’t see anything in close proximity to you? Join the photo petition online by taking a picture of your friends, colleagues, and family holding this sign. Tweet it to @borderjustice or send it to Ruth at rrobles@lawg.org giving us your permission to post on your behalf to Facebook.

We may not all live along the border or be personally impacted by these decisions on a day-to-day basis, but we can all see that this is just plain bad policy and a huge waste of resources in our current economic crisis.
