Close the Camps! Free Them All! April 19 Demonstration at SWK!
April 19, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Never Again Action-Houston will hold a second COVID-safe, car-only demonstration to demand the closure of the Southwest Key detention center at 419 Emancipation Avenue on Sunday, April 19, at 1:30 pm. We will assemble in the parking lot diagonally across from the detention center and place signs on our cars–at a safe distance from each other. Please bring your own signs and tape! Then we will form a caravan and drive around the detention center, honking and chanting as we go, for about one hour.
This demonstration is co-sponsored by Houston Socialist Movement and Refuse Fascism-Houston. It is part of a state-wide day of action against ICE and private detention centers. Never Again Action groups will also hold car-only protests in San Antonio, Austin, Dallas-Ft. Worth, and Corpus Christi. We can’t let COVID-19 become a death sentence for migrants in detention centers. Together, we will demand: Close the Camps! Free Them All! If you live in Greater Houston and want to stand up for migrants, please plan to join us on April 19. For more information, please contact us.
