Support day laborers in Lake Forest, Saturday, March 4th, 8 am-12 noon
- Hello everybody:
We're asking that activists from all over Southern
California come out this Saturday to help monitor and
demonstrate against the SOS/Minuteman supporters that
are harrassing the day laborers in Lake Forest.
Although between 20 and 30 SOS/Minuteman types came
out last Saturday, the day laborers were better
organized and more assertive in defending their
rights. Some of their families came out in support.
In addition to this, several Lake Forest residents,
including a number of young teenagers, told the crowd
of SOS/Minuteman that had assembled to quit bugging
the day laborers and go home.
Activists also kept a close eye on the behavior of
Orange County Sheriff's Deputies who patrolled the
area to ensure they did not trample on the First
Amendment rights of the day laborers.
At a prior demonstration, Sheriff's Deputies allegedly
threatened day laborers and supporters with arrest for
engaging in constitutionally protected activities.
That didn't happen last Saturday.
In fact, Sheriff's Deputies appeared to have been
irked by the fact that SOS/Minuteman supporters kept
calling them up via cellphone asking them to come out
to protect them from non-existent threats.
We're expecting the same number of SOS/Minuteman to be
out in Lake Forest this weekend. So if you can come
and support the day laborers, it would be deeply
appreciated. The more people the better.
