* Update *
This occupation is ongoing. There is no scheduled end date. This part of the event can no longer be edited because the event is considered to be "in the past" by Facebook.
* Update * Monday, June 25th, 7 p.m.
We will be meeting up starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning to shut down Detroit ICE for the second day in a row. Please come whenever you can between 6 a.m. and when the office is scheduled to close at 4 p.m.
The tent city is suspended for now.
We can still use food and water donations during the day.
We are still seeking contributions to our GoFundMe. Money=options!

Thank you to all who have down their part in this community effort to stop these crimes against humanity. We will not be silent witnesses; we will resist with every fiber of our beings!

* Update *

Park in the Walgreen's parking lot that is kitty corner to the ICE field office (AKA the Rosa Parks Federal Building). Leave any gear you've brought (except signs) and meet outside the field office on the E. Jefferson side.

We do have more specific plans for tent placement and other logistics that we do not want to post publicly. We have been in touch with the National Lawyers Guild regarding support. There will be legal observers. There will be a medic tent. We will not be getting intentionally arrested as an act of civil disobedience. We will do our best to avoid arrest. We will do our best to take care of each other.

Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. You should not attend this action if you are at risk of ICE detention or are on probation. Having said this, we anticipate this event being relatively safe, especially when compared to what some of our family, friends and neighbors are currently enduring in Trump's concentration camps.

We will plan to have an open mic/meeting every evening (approx. 7 p.m.) and at noon every day. We do not know how long we will be at this location. The people who attend the action will decide. We will post updates to this event page.

We would love for everyone to stop by, anytime, for as long as you are able. We would be grateful for any supplies you can drop off as well.

Needed supplies:
Medic supplies
Camp chairs
Toilet paper
Monetary donations (FundedJustice link soon)
Signs that you can leave behind to create an even bigger scene
Education or entertainment to keep spirits high

Our protests ended the policy of stealing children from their parents. Now let's shut the whole thing down. We have much more to do.

Protesters with #OccupyICE have shut down the Portland ICE facility. They've been camping out and refusing to allow cars in and out of the facility since Monday. ICE has closed the facility. All ICE appointments there are cancelled.

Occupy ICE.
Shut down the Detroit field office.
Shut down all concentration camps.
Abolish ICE and Customs and Border Patrol.

Bring your camping supplies. Plan to stay a while.

More details to come. Send a PM if you can get one going in your city.
