Rise up for a #FreeThemAllFridays march and direct action to fight against all those who uphold and enable ICE’s deportation machine and police violence. We demand freedom for all people suffering in detention centers and prisons during this pandemic.

The government continues to send police and ICE to terrorize Black and Brown communities and lock people into cages. Detained and incarcerated people are getting COVID-19 at a higher rate and dying by the hundreds. Meanwhile, elected officials refuse to defund the police and ICE or invest in education, healthcare, housing, and worker protection.

 

We say enough is enough. It is time to rise up.

Chinga La Migra. Black Lives Matter. Black Immigrant Lives Matter. La migra, la policía, la misma porquería!


No one is free until everyone is free.

#FreeThemAll

DON'T SPY FOR POL(ICE)!

 October 2nd. 4 PM.

OUR DEMANDS

1. #FreeThemAll by using emergency powers to order the release of all ICE detainees and incarcerated people locked up in New York State to safeguard human life and public health.

2. #DefundThePolice, and remove them from schools, emergency rooms, subways, and mental health crisis response. Withdraw state funding for all police departments across New York State. Tear up police contracts with state agencies, including social services and care services.

3. Establish an immediate emergency relief fund for the undocumented community who are suffering from loss of jobs and income, left out of federal/state relief, and cannot qualify for unemployment benefits.

4. #CancelRent during COVID-19, don’t just defer evictions until later. Many New Yorkers, especially undocumented people, are struggling to pay rent due to the effects of this pandemic and will be in danger of losing their housing.

5. #ProtectAllWorkers. Immigrant workers and all workers need proper PPE, hazard pay, and paid sick leave. Immigrant workers are #EssentialNotDisposable. Don’t allow schools to reopen in unsafe conditions, putting teachers, students, and their families at risk. Don’t use police to harass sex workers, and stop arresting people for #WalkingWhileTrans.
