NDLON ORGANIZES SOLIDARITY BUS RIDE TO NATIONAL CONVERGENCE AGAINST SB 1070
What: A SOLIDARITY CARAVAN of over 200 workers, activists, students and community members will be riding on 4 buses to Phoenix, AZ to join with a national convergence for a nighttime festival of human rights and the National Day of Action against SB 1070 on May 29th.Where: From Los Angeles and San Bernardino, CA to Phoenix, AZ, 675 S. Park View St. Los Angeles, CA 90057
When: Caravan leaves from Los Angeles at 8:30 AM on Tuesday May 28, 2010
Who: The National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), students, teachers, community members and workers
The solidarity caravan will be leaving from Los Angeles on Friday May 28th at 8:20 AM. No one on NDLON’s caravan will be carrying immigration papers or legal identification, and as the riders cross into Arizona, they will be at risk of detention under the SB 1070 bill. The first purpose of this is to show solidarity with Arizona’s criminalized immigrant population as a result of the bill. Also, by resolving to forgo showing papers if asked by law enforcement, we are showing respect for and recognition of the bravery of those on the solidarity ride who are undocumented or in the US on a Visa.
National Convergence and March
On the morning of May 29th, the caravan will join with a national convergence against SB 1070 at Indian Steele Park (Corner of 3rd Street and Indian School Rd) in Phoenix. First, there will be performances and preparation for the march. Then, the convergence will embark on a 5-mile march to the Arizona State Capitol. The marchers, acting in conjunction with other actions across the country, will be calling on President Obama to take a stand and conduct immediate action to stop SB 1070.
