Oshkosh, November 27, 2018: Emergency Response: Solidarity with the Refugees!

Emergency Response: Solidarity with the Refugees!

315 N Main Street, Oshkosh, Opera House Square, 5:15 P.M.

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.


 

UW-Parkside, Kenosha, November 28, 2018: Support Honduran Refugee caravan!

Support Honduran Refugee caravan!

900 Wood Rd., Kenosha, UW Parkside Student Center, 11 A.M. – 2 P.M.

Honduran refugees have been moving slowly north towards the U.S. to escape from violence and poverty rampnt in Honduras. The refugees intend to seek asylum in the U.S., but President Trump has made it clear that he will do everything he can to stop them, including the construction of the U.S./Mexico border wall, deploying more than one thousand troops to the border, and even most recently, assaulting the refugees with tear gas and rubber bullets.

UW-Parkside SDS condemns these actions by our government and supports the refugees human right to escape violence. Join us on Wednesday to discuss the conditions in Central America and of the refugees. Stand with us to say, “Let them in!”

November 30 – December 12, 2018: Welcome Refugee Caravan

Welcome Refugee Caravan

Emergency Call for — WELCOMING COMMITTEES FOR THE MIGRANT/REFUGEE CARAVAN”

CARAVAN TO THE BORDER: We the undersigned groups and individuals call on community, union, student and worker groups to hold “Welcoming Committees” at the U.S. border. Let’s bring food, water and aid. Let’s bring our bodies to welcome and show support for the thousands of refugees who are risking their lives to build a better life for their loved ones.

HOLD LOCAL ACTIONS: If you cannot get to the border, hold emergency actions in your city, town, workplace or school as the migrant and refugee caravan nears or reaches the U.S. border. Shut down ICE offices, rally at detention centers, and schedule rush hour marches.

BUILD SOLIDARITY

We as workers, students and youth have more in common with the migrants who are fleeing conditions that have been manufactured by global capitalists and the Pentagon, than with these same bosses who refuse to pay workers a living wage or fight against enacting universal health care or workers’ rights.

As women, LGBTQ, queer and Trans activists, we extend our hand to our refugee sisters, brothers and siblings to build solidarity.

It is critical that we guarantee our opposition to every form of racism both at home experienced by Black and Brown people in every major city and corner of this country — along with fighting to say no to the racist policies that target Muslims, African, Caribbean and Latinx migrants. We say No Walls against Mexico or Palestine.

It’s important to remember that the refugees who embarked on this grueling march are doing so because of U.S. imperialist policies that have left a legacy of violence, oppression and crushing poverty forcing people to flee their homes and risk everything.

TO THE GI TROOPS

To those rank and files GI’s being sent to the border, we call on you not to go. If you are already there, then conduct work slowdowns, get sick, but most of all follow your conscience — don’t shoot or brutalize defenseless unarmed children, women and men.

The cost of this troop deployment is estimated to be $220 million: this is badly needed money that could be spent on schools, jobs and veteran services that have been slashed.

PUSH BACK TRUMP REACTION

It’s urgent that we do everything possible to push back the Trump reaction which has ushered in a violent neo-right-wing current that threatens everyone. We cannot wait until the elections; we must mobilize now!

We call on all groups to cooperate and work together to make this happen. We urge those who are able to also join SOA School of the America Watch at the border (You can contact them at: www.SOAW.org)

To sign on to this CALL respond on Facebook or email: WelcomeMigrantCaravan@gmail.com
