***************************************************************************************

More than 7,000 migrants from Central America - primarily Honduras - are making their way across Mexico to the US border fleeing from the poverty and violence caused by decades of economic subordination to the US through CAFTA (and the security policy imposed in the so-called "war on drugs"). In Honduras, the situation of millions of workers and poor worsened dramatically after the military coup in 2009 against a democratically elected government, mandated by the former administration of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

They are traveling in a caravan to keep each other safe. As these migrants make their way north, Republicans have unleashed racist lies about the caravan, violent right-wing militias have vowed to take up arms against the migrants, and President Trump has ordered 5,000 support troops to the border. 

Anti-immigrant hate has long been the primary incubator of a deadly far-right movement that has been growing in this country. This is the same far right movement that lead to the deaths of Maurice Stallard and Vickie Jones, two African Americans gunned down by a white racist in a Krogers parking lot in Kentucky last week, and the 11 victims of Pittsburg’s synagogue shooting, targeted both for being Jewish and for their work in support of refugees. 

We must stand up to show our solidarity with the migrant caravan and all immigrants, and refugees and all victims of bigotry and state violence. We must fight back against the racist, violent rhetoric and actions of Republicans, and the weak-willed complacency of the Democrats. 
We must call out the US’ deep-rooted imperialism and intervention in Latin America that have led so many migrants to flee their homes. We must build a movement that recognizes the shared interest of people on both sides of the border to unite against bigotry and hate. 

Join us this Saturday, November 3rd, to voice our support for all migrants seeking asylum and opportunity.

* We demand a radical shift in U.S. immigration policy that recognizes the rights of all people, regardless of where they were born. 
* We demand permanent protection for all undocumented immigrants. 
* We demand immediate demilitarization of the US-Mexico border, an end to all deportations, and the abolition of ICE, without replacement.
* We demand a world that recognizes the free movement of people, not the free movement of capital.

Más de 7,000 migrantes Centro Americanos, la mayoría de Honduras - se dirigen hacia los EEUU a través de Mexico, huyendo violencia y extrema pobreza, en parte causada por intervenciones Estadounidenses en la region.

Conforme estas personas siguen avanzando hacia el norte, los Republicanos han comenzado a propagar mentiras racistas sobre La Caravana, grupos paramilitares prometen ir a defender la frontera y el presidente Trump ya mandó a 5,000 soldados al sur del país.
Como respuesta, grupos defensores de los derechos de inmigrantes y activistas de distintas partes de la ciudad, se reunirán en la Plaza Unión Square el sábado, para demostrar solidaridad con la gente en la caravana y ponerle un paro a la administración de Trump, por sus ataques anti inmigrantes, la militarización de la frontera con Mexico y para llamar atención a las verdaderas causas de la migración masiva en Centro America, que fueron las intervenciones políticas y militares Estadounidenses en la region.

Habrán distintos oradores en el rally.

Los organizadores también leeran un comunicado del grupo, incluyendo las siguientes demandas:
* Demandamos un cambio radical en la política de inmigración en EEUU, que reconozca el derecho de las personas sin importar donde nacieron.
* Demandamos protección permanente para todos los inmigrantes indocumentados
* Demandamos no mandar más tropas a la frontera con Mexico, parar las deportaciones y el completo desmantelamiento de ICE.
* Demandamos un Mundo que reconozca el libre movimiento de las personas no sólo del capital.
