As a people, the most powerful weapon we have against injustice is our voice. When we rise up and demand action, that is when change will come.
This is what happened when hundreds of people rose up and demanded action to close immigrant detention camps. The Mission Local broke the story yesterday.
“The president is stripping these kids of their rights, their constitutional rights, to request asylum and stay in this country. Not just kids too, also adults,” said Francisco Aguirre, a member of the National Day Labor Organizing Network, who carried a banner that read “Solidarity, Justice, and Respect.”
This is a beautiful show of solidarity from a people sick and tired of human rights abuses coming from the White House.
We should see these marches happening all across the country.
