About wibailoutpeople

We are a part of the national Bail Out The People movement which formed in 2008 to fight against the bailouts to the banks. Since then we have been in numerous fights against poverty, racism and war. We demand that the people be bailed out not the banks, a moratorium on all foreclosures, a federal jobs program now and other demands. We have been participating in the Wisconsin people's uprising, Bloombergville in NYC and numerous other people's actions.

Milwaukee, June 28, 2018: Keep Families Together: End Trump’s Immigration Terror

Hosted by Young People’s Resistance Committee

Keep Families Together: End Trumps Immigration Terror

1031 S 9th Street, 6 P.M., Walker Square Park, Milwaukee 

The Trump Administration has been running a terror campaign against immigrants in the United States. Most recently this has meant the separation of children from their families at the border. Join YPRC as we rally and demand:

1. An end to the Trump Administration’s zero-tolerance policy on the imprisonment of immigrants.

2. The right of families to remain united throughout the entire process of petitioning for asylum.

3. For Anselmo Villarreal to step down from his current position as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the Southwest Key Program (SKP) and publicly denounce the separation of children from their families under the current administration’s policy.
