10. Saturday, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, #FreeTheFamilies Vigil for the Women in ICE Custody (Albany, CA)

Albany Memorial Park
904 Jackson St.
Albany

Wear masks; Practice social distancing

Community members are invited to show their support and solidarity for ICE detainees by gathering at a local park while keeping social distance.

This administration’s attacks on migrant families is an affront to our values and political system. We believe in supporting families and keeping them together, not tearing them apart and caging them. Most recently, whistleblower Dawn Wooten, a former nurse at ICE’s Irwin County Detention Center in Georgia, stated that ICE surgically sterilized women detainees without their consent.

The bottom line: there is a clear pattern of abuse at the hands of ICE. They can’t be trusted to care for anyone.

Host: Families Belong Together

12. Sunday, 3:00pm – 5:00pm, ICE Has Blood on Their Hands. End Violence Against Women! Rally

Fruitvale Plaza
3340 E. 12th Street
Oakland

Please, wear a mask and stand 6 feet apart when possible. Bring sanitation supplies such as hand sanitizer for yourself, and more if you have enough to share

There is a war being waged on Black and Brown women inside detention centers and ICE has blood on their hands. Mass hysterectomies are being performed on immigrant women at the LaSalle Corrections facilities in Georgia. These forced sterilizations are more than acts of medical malpractice, they are weapons of reproductive violence, mutilation, torture, eugenics, and genocide against people of the global south.

Join AF3IRM SF Bay Area, a transnational feminist, anti-imperialist organization, for a speak out  to condemn this violence against immigrant women and to demand the abolition of ICE! We stand in radical solidarity with the women in detention, whistleblower Nurse Dawn Wooten, and all transnational women on the front lines, fighting for abolition and collective liberation.

Together, we will fight for the end of ICE, the downfall of the fascist state, and the destruction of every prison and border wall. The lives and spirits of our sisters in ICE custody, on the US/Mexico border, and in our communities are valuable, powerful, and worth fighting for

It’s on: The Struggle for the Future

Will it be fascist
Or, will we act on our conscience?

We face a critical crossroads. The hour is late, but not too late. Relying only on our voting will lead to disaster. The Trump/Pence regime is subverting the election now and preparing to nullify it. Waiting to act till they do so will be too late.

Trump’s MAGA mobs maraud around the country in water and land caravans; they murder protesters and innocent people by guns and by their cars. They spread COVID. They are inflamed with passionate reactionary intensity. All for the purpose of rousing their followers and intimidating and demoralizing all who should be standing up for justice.
