July Protest Against Klan Brewer in Boston

Posted by libhom Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Klan Brewer looking hateful and evilFrom the A.N.S.W.E.R. website:

On Saturday, July 10, thousands will protest against anti-immigrant racism at the National Governors Association annual meeting in Boston.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s racist law, SB 1070, has ignited a firestorm of protests around the country at the very time when immigrants and their supporters are standing up for reform. In addition to SB 1070, which legalizes racial profiling and is aimed at all people of color in Arizona, the state has passed a bill, HB 2281, which bans ethnic studies from public classrooms. Other states are reportedly considering similar moves.

In Massachusetts, a series of anti-immigrant amendments were passed into the State Senate's version of the budget, restricting access to basic social services like healthcare, education and housing. Also included is the creation of an anonymous tip line for the public to report on undocumented people and mandating the state to investigate all reports made.

These attacks come at a time when all people are suffering from the wave of budget cuts and mass unemployment that makes racism and anti-immigrant xenophobia so dangerous.

It’s time for Brewer and the rest of the state governors to be met with the outrage felt by millions of immigrants and their supporters.

Immigration must be on the agenda of the annual meeting of the National Governor’s Association—and our voices must be heard!

The protest has broad support among anti racist activists. Supporting organizations include:
ANSWER Coalition
Vamos Unidos USA
Boston Mayday Committee
Mass Global Action
Unidad Latina en Acción
Hermandad Mexicana Nacional
Muslim American Society Freedom
La Iglesia San Romero de Las Americas-UCC
Rev. Graylan Hagler, National President of Ministers for Racial, Social and Economic Justice
Barrio Unido para Amnistía Incondicional
Ugnayan ng mga Anak ng Bayan (Linking the Children of the Motherland)
Damayan Migrant Workers Association
Partnership for Civil Justice Fund
March Forward!
Alliance for Global Justice

If you are in the Boston area at the time, you are encouraged to go.

It's encouraging to see people oppose the racist scapegoating by corrupt bigots like Klan Brewer. The efforts by corporate media to deflect legitimate anger resulting from suffering caused by corrupt behavior by wealthy and corporate interests are reprehensible. Illegal immigration has little or no impact on our lives. Obscene tax breaks for the rich, the Iraq War, predatory lending, outsourcing, wasteful military spending, financial speculation, derivatives trading, and corporate controlled trade agreements like NAFTA are causing far more pain for middle class and poor Americans. Yet, those issues are deflected or spun by corrupt media and corrupt politicians like Klan Brewer who are completely bought and paid for by the interests that are devastating the overwhelming majority of people in this country.

  1. Montana Says:
  2. The Tea Bag Party are just “haters not debaters” or as others have dubbed them “screamers not dreamers”, with their failed attempts at stopping Healthcare reform, they say they respect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence but they do not mind passing laws, through weak Governors (no one voted for this crazy) who only cares about getting elected Governor, on the backs of undocumented workers, that will not pass Constitution muster.

    Brewer signed into law;

    1. S.B. 1070,
    2. No permit conceal weapons law,
    3. The famous Birthers law,
    4. Banning Ethic studies law,

    5. Could she be behind the Mural in Prescott, Arizona, ordered to be whiten,
    6. On deck to pass, no citizenship to babies born to undocumented workers,

    7. If she can read she should look up Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago (which was un-constitution and failed when legally challenged),
    8. The boycotted Martin Luther King Day, what idiots don’t want another holiday? Yes, you guessed it Arizona.

    Well Arizona, you can boycott new holidays and keep passing crazy laws and the rest of us will continue to challenged them in a court of law and continue to add cities to our Boycott of your state.

    I real cannot believe anything that comes out of Brewer’s mouth, in an interview she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (war ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. But we are suppose to believe everything else she says, right!

    As for the Tea Bag Party, their phony patriotism is sickening; they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, energy (remember Cheney’s secret meetings with oil companies where loosening regulation and oversight were sealed), climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions).
