Movitas was honored to participate in an action at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma on February 24th. Folks blocked vans from leaving the center, keeping several folks from being processed for deportation that day. And folks being detained inside heard about, they launched a hunger strike which has now spread to other sites (esp. in Texas). For more, see below.
Movitas will continue to stand with Not 1 More Deportation (http://www.notonemoredeportation.com/), and other folks interested in challenging the racism and classism of our country’s current immigration policy, and the private prison industry. And calls on other like-minded folks to connect up with local efforts wherever you are.
On April 5, 2014, actions will be happening all over the US. Check for one near you.
