      Bringin' It Back to Queens:
      Anti-Deportation Summer '04 Hits Jackson Heights
      Saturday, August 14th
      1-4pm: Junction Blvd & Roosevelt
      4-7pm: 73rd St & 37th Road
      4-7pm: 82nd St & Roosevelt

      Everyday more and more immigrant New Yorkers are getting deported. Being an
      immigrant has become its own special crime. The climate in New York is
      increasingly unsafe for immigrants. Families and neighborhoods are being
      torn
      apart. It is time for us to break the silence.

      Join us THIS SATURDAY as Anti-Deportation Summer makes some noise in Jackson
      Heights, a Latino and South Asian metropolis. As children play by the
      hydrants,
      as adults go in and out of stores, we will stand at the corner, and share our
      stories and our knowledge. Families affected by deportation, and community
      leaders appalled by the ongoing War on Immigrants, will come together to
      plaster the streets with flyers and slogans, educate our targeted
      communities,
      and deliver one overarching message: We refuse to take the abuse quietly. It
      is time to SPEAK-OUT!!!

      Anti-Deportation Summer is a regional public education campaign to fight the
      rising tide of deportation and fear in our city of immigrants. With support
      from over a dozen organizations in New York, sponsors of the Queens leg of
      the
      campaign include Agenda 21, Asian American Legal Defense Education Fund,
      Coalition For the Human Rights of Immigrants, Families For Freedom, and
      Special
      Registrants Action Network.

      Next film: THE CHINATOWN FILES

      The Chinatown Files explores the history of Chinese immigration to America
      and
      relates it to the climate of fear that McCarthyism produced. At the height of
      the hysteria, thousands of Chinese immigrants and American citizens of
      Chinese
      descent were investigated because of their alleged risk to national security.
      Amy Chen's documentary tells their story. Seven Chinese American men and
      women
      speak out on how they and their friends were investigated and persecuted by
      government agents during the anti-Communist witch-hunts of the 1950s.

      SECOND SATURDAYS brings together film, politics & community to support and
      promote alternative media and grassroots organizing in NYC Asian communities.
      The monthly series will feature films and videos that tell the stories and
      struggles of the Asian diaspora from diverse perspectives.
