Ganando el dercho de hablar por nosotros mismos: Winning The Right To Speak For Ourselves!

Posted: August 20, 2012 in Call to Action, for your reflection, Real Food For Thought, Solidarity

This in from No Papers No Fear Ride for Justice.

The US Commission on Civil Rights held a briefing in Alabama on the impact of state-based immigration laws. They invited the author of SB1070 and the sponsor of Alabama’s hate law.

Kris Kobach can’t testify about the impact of immigration laws. Undocumented people can. Riders from No Papers No Fear interrupted his speech until they were escorted out. We came back stronger and demanded we be included. By not backing down, we won our inclusion for the day.

Yesterday we told you about how our presence turned the US Commission on civil Right’s hearing on state immigration laws from a space of exclusion of undocumented immigrants, to one of inclusion.

Here is the second video of the action from this day, showing the arrival of the No Papers No Fear Ride for Justice into Birmingham, Alabama, and the performance and protest by the riders.
