Over the last several weeks, people displaced by US economic and foreign policy from across Latin America have gathered together in a multi-thousand person caravan headed for the US-Mexico. These people are seeking asylum from oppressive puppet regimes propped up by the US government in places like Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

Since the weekend, as the caravanistas began arriving at the border, the troops and agents stationed there by the Trump administration have unleashed their arsenal upon the peaceful asylum seekers. What has happened resembles scenes from a warzone. Women and children in diapers have been shot with rubber bullets and choked by tear gas. Some–including children–are in critical condition from injuries suffered at the hands of these ruthless troops and border agents.

It is the duty of progressives and people of conscious to stand up in solidarity with these refugees and oppose this breech of international law at the border. Join UAO at the Sun Dial tomorrow evening at 5:15 for an emergency demonstration.
