On May 29, 2010 over 100,000 people took to the streets of Phoenix, Arizona to protest Arizona's Senate Bill 1070. SB 1070 would make the failure to carry immigration documents a crime and give the police the power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country without citizenship.
SB 1070 is racial profiling and a major step backwards away from realizing civil rights. That is why we are calling for a Arizona Human Rights Summer in the spirit of the Mississippi Freedom Summer from 1964. In the coming months, we will peacefully escalate resistance to SB1070.
Come to Arizona for the Day of Non-Compliance, July 29th, when SB 1070 is scheduled to go into effect. We will make this summer a Human Rights summer everywhere. Wherever the Diamondbacks play, protest. Wherever there are new police/ice collaborations, push back. Wherever Arizona companies do business, boycott. Wherever there is injustice, we must shut it down.
