5:00pm [5:00pm] Emergency Rally to Protect Immigrant Workers! Stop Deportations Now!
Description:
Emergency Rally to Protect Immigrant Workers! Stop Deportations Now! When immigrant rights are under attack, what do we do? Stand up! Fight back! Friday March 24th, 5:00pm In front of the Kenneth B. Keating Federal Building 100 State Street, Rochester, NY 14614 Facebook event page here On the morning of March 21st, five farmworkers were picked up by ICE in Albion, NY. None of them had warrants for their arrests. None of them have criminal pasts. None were charged with a crime. None were ticketed. They are farmworkers living and working in our community and were taken by ICE for no apparent reason. March 24th also marks one month in which Jose Coyote Perez, a well-known dairy farmworker leader, member of the Workers Center of Central NY and co-founder of the Alianza Agricola, was put in detention without any official reason even though his deportation case was closed in September 2016. Finally, this past Friday three worker leaders from Migrant Justice in Vermont were detained by ICE. Ø Why are we detaining fathers who want to be working to feed their families? Ø Why are we detaining farmworkers and leaving fields vulnerable? Ø Why are we detaining workers who stand up for their rights, only causing people at risk of exploitation and oppression to further retreat in fear? Allies of area farmworkers in Upstate New York are calling for an emergency rally outside of the Federal Building in Rochester this Friday. Come out and show your support! List of co-sponsors: Greater Rochester Coalition for Immigration Justice, Metro Justice, Genesee Valley Chapter of NYCLU, Worker Justice Center of New York, ROC/Acts, Rural and Migrant Ministry, Alianza Agricola, Brockport Ecumenical Outreach Committee Workers’ Center of Central New York, Rochester Workers’Center, Western NY Coalition of Farmworker Serving Agencies Contact: Carly Fox, (585) 500-9409, carly.fox.wjcny@gmail.com *** Manifestación de emergencia para proteger a los trabajadores inmigrantes ¡Alto a las deportaciones!
