No One Is Illegal (NOISI) Coalition | ******Please forward widely**********

NO MORE DEPORTATIONS
NO MORE BORDER WALLS
NO MORE SO-CALLED 'WAR ON TERROR'
NO MORE MINUTEMEN


PRESS CONFERENCE BY THE 'NO ONE IS ILLEGAL' COALITION TO PROTEST MINUTEMAN FOUNDER JIM GILCHRIST 'S APPEARANCE AT GROUND ZERO

PLEASE CALL: 347.537.3433

11 am, July 26
City Hall Park
Corner of Murray St and Broadway

From there, we will march to the corner of Church and Liberty Sts to rally with other pro-immigrant organizations.

Minutemen founder Jim Gilchrist is coming to "Ground Zero" to link his war on immigrants to the rhetoric around a "War on Terror" used to justify US military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the arrest, frequent torture, and deportation without charges of masses of Arab and Muslim immigrants in this country.
While the Minutemen portray themselves as a tolerant group concerned only with border security, they are in fact and armed militia group that seeks to recruit members on the basis of racist lies, such as Gilchrist's claim that "20 % of southern border-crossers are known criminals, drug dealers, sex
traffickers, and gang lords.' Gilchrist is a member of the openly white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, and ex-leader of the Minutemen James Chase wrote to him in 2005 that ""You have murderers in your ranks. You have Nazis, other anti-Jews, and anti-Hispanic racists side by side with you."
Neither the Minutemen Project nor the "War on Terror" (and its domestic agent, the ICE) have anything to do with security, let alone concern for those who died on 9/11/2001. Both stir up racist hatred to turn attention away from the real causes of instability in the lives of working people in this country.

In reality, immigrant labor contributes to the US economy and an increase in jobs rather than "stealing jobs", while the US military remains, in the words of Martin Luther King, by far "the greatest purveyor of violence" in the world today.

JOIN THE 'NO ONE IS ILLEGAL' (NOISI) COALITION AND A DIVERSE GROUP OF CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS FOR
A PRESS CONFERENCE TO EXPOSE GILCHRIST 'S LIES, AND CALL FOR FULL RIGHTS FOR ALL IMMIGRANTS!

Book Review: Journey to the Ends of Anarchy (Indypendent)

John Tarleton | From the squats of Berlin to life as a deckhand on a Central American banana boat to the perilous mountains of rebel Kurdistan to an exhausted, mud-soaked slice of Zapatista utopia, Clandestines: The Pirate Journals of an Irish Exile is a rollicking travelogue. Ryan knows the traveler’s secret of being open to the moment and trusting whatever it brings. His poignant tales of defeat, desolation, betrayal and lingering hope are told with both humor and a canny insight into the human spirit. more...  7 Comments
