Stop Trump Now! No More Raids, Detentions, and Deportations!

July 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Houston, TX United States + Google Map

Trump's relentless attacks on migrants are leading to more abuse, neglect, misery, and deaths. It is time for people to take a stronger stand against this racist repression. The criminalization of migrants and militarization of the border has contributed to thousands of deaths in the past decade. Scores of migrants have died at the hands of the Trump administration. Families continue to be separated. And private migrant prisons are profiting from the government's cruelty.

Free Los Ninos Coalition will hold a demonstration against SWK's child detention center and call for an end to all raids, detentions, and deportions on Thursday, July 4, at 1 pm. This national holiday is the perfect time to point out how the systemic repression of migrants demonstrates that all the official rhetoric about "liberty and justice for all" is a lie. And for those of us who really do want freedom, equality, and real democracy, this is the perfect time to come out and say so as we demand justice for migrants.

The film is both an expose of problems within the chocolate supply chain, and an inspirational story of people trying to change the world they live in.
