Preparation continues for the march/rally planned for San
Ysidro, Ca. on Sat. Oct. 2nd against 10 years of Operation Guardian and the
neoliberal policies and theft against the people of LatinoAmerica. The Raza Rights
Coalition together with other Mexican, latin and progressive
organizations seeks to not just denounce this crime against humanity with this call to march, but also to organize our people for our self-defense. The activities will begin
at Noon at Howard Lane Park (intersection of Beyer Blvd. and Dairymart Road) in
San Ysidro, Ca.
The Raza Rights Coalition, with more than 15 years struggling
in defense of the democratic and human rights of the Mexican people in San
Diego, again denounces Operation Guardian as a crime against humanity.
Operation Guardian is the result of the economic policies advanced by the United
States in an attempt to control the labor force of migrant workers. The Free Trade
Agreement (Treaty) has been the reason why millions of workers and
peasants risk their lives to be able to feed their families. In the last 10 years,
more than 3,000 migrants have died crossing the imposed border.
The U.S. government hipocritically seeks to "control" our labor
force by militarizing the border, while promising legalization for a limited
of "undocumented" workers. The now infamous tactic of the carrot and
will not accept. The organized community says enough with the
and the passing of unjust laws. We will not accept green cards at the
more deaths and more raids.
This Oct. 1st and 2nd, the Raza Rights Coalition in conjunction
the American Friends Service Committee-US Mexico Border Program,
border communities and all persons who consider themselves progressive
the side of justice and dignity to come to San Ysidro and protest
years of Operation Guardian, 10 years of policies and initiatives that
against the physical integrity and basic human rights of our people and
10 years of
"free trade" that have been the direct cause of the hunger and misery
the great majority of the latinamerican people.
FOR JUSTICE, DIGNITY AND LIBERTY:
THE PEOPLE ORGANIZED WILL TRIUMPH!
