2. Tuesday, 12:30pm – 1:30pm, Boycott Manny’s – Weekly protest!
16th & Valencia St. (outside)
From Black & Brown For Justice Peace and Equality / Mothers On The March Against Police Murders.
Why Are We Boycotting Manny’s?
The owner of Manny’s is occupying a place that the Latino community fought for! Residents of the Mission community have fought for many years to make sure that community organizations create venues/space that would benefit the black and brown community. We believe that this should be a cultural center for the youth of this area, especially at a time when so many are being displaced.
The owner of Manny’s also support the occupation of Palestine by a so-called Zionist state of Israel that is committing genocide of the Palestinian People. Zionist also are involved with training police in the US.
Join us, Stop the Displacement of Black and Brown People from the Mission, help us denounce Zionism and help STOP the GENOCIDE of the Palestinian People by the state of Israel.

Bill Ong Hing, Professor of Law and Migration Studies was part of a Flores inspection team that was permitted to interview minors detained at a border patrol processing facility in Clint, Texas. After three days of detailed conversations with many detainees, he came away disgusted and appalled. The declarations of minors collected by Professor Hing and others on the inspection team are being used in negotiations today with Department of Justice attorneys to close down the facility.
Professor Hing had conversations with several teen mothers with infants as young as five and nine months. He also had individual conversations with 5 and 8 year old boys, three sets of siblings—a 14 year old girl and her 10 year old brother, brothers, ages 12 and 4, and another sister and brother, ages 15 and 13. Several cried as they talked about the conditions and missing their parents.

11. Friday, 4:00pm – 6:00pm, Speak-out & Protest: Stop ICE Raids! Stop Detentions!
SF Federal Building
90 7th St.
On June 17, President Trump announced raids to deport thousands of immigrants from cities across the country, including San Francisco. Although the sweeps, to have begun June 23, were postponed, immigrants, their supporters, and working people in general need to demand an end to all ICE raids and detentions.
The profit-driven policies of both Democratic and Republican politicians over the years have driven the economic, political, and environmental devastation that forces migrants and refugees to cross the U.S. border for survival. It’s time to reignite the movement to defend immigrants and hold the federal government accountable. Officials have shown that they cannot be trusted to respect the human and legal rights of migrants, so it is up to us to take action as supporters.
Join with other community members, advocates and activists to demand that Senators Harris and Feinstein, and Representatives Pelosi, Speier and others withhold all funding for deportation raids, shut down ICE, close detention centers, and reunite families.
