Immigrant Solidarity Protest against ICE Detention Center

Date: 
Fri, Feb 17, 2017 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm

City:

Workers, documented and undocumented, unite! A general strike has been called for on February 17th 2017. Racist mass deportations have already begun in Detroit and throughout the country. Immigrants are being scapegoated and targeted by the Trump Administration and their reactionary supporters in order to divide the working class and distract us from identifying the real threat and our common enemy: Hate groups, U.S. imperialism, and the bosses. We will start by demonstrating at the main entrance of the ICE Detention & Deportation Center.

Thu, Feb 16, 2017 - 9:45am to 12:00pm

City:

While working-class Detroiters and others in Wayne County continue to be forced to bear the burdens of an urban crisis we didn’t create – being pushed out of the city through massive evictions and water shutoffs, schools being closed and having to send our children to schools that are overcrowded and underresourced, or being unable to find a job that pays a living wage (if you can find a job at all) – Wayne County has been in the process of building a new jail to lock up even more people who are struggling just to get by.
