Subject: Alabama :Immigrants march, harrassed, police inaction,
My good friend from the Chicana movement, she was a 14 yr old Brown
Beret at the time of the East LA walkouts, she sent me information on
recent happenings in Alabama. Quite interesting how the cops ignore and the
Minutemen and KKK move parallel if not coordinated. She sent me an
article on the Klan rally on Saturday I include below here letter.l Roving
repression as I see it as in Karl Rove. Rosalio
A lot has happened but most
important on May 1st a total
of 1,500 participated protested at down town Huntsville
Took everyone by surprise now many of the residents
mostly rednecks are retaliating by harassing immigrants
a church in Decatur, Alabama was vandalized.
Many employers allowed employees attend the march
as well as non-immigrants only a few went.
On the day of the protest some of the employees left their cars
in the parking lot Cinaram is the name of the company
right down the street from ours.
When the employees went back to get their cars
they were found with all the windows bashed in
look like someone used a bat the police are saying
this was not a hate crime because both non-immigrants
and immigrants cars were found with bashed windows.
HUH??? The redneck way to justify things, could it be that
these are the same employees that attended the
The police say more has to be investigated
doubt it will happen.
1300 students did not attend school... now some
action will be taken expulsion or deportation ??
It has been hard to find out...
No one is saying anything...then the KKK is also
having protest...asking Huntsville residents to join
in.... things are getting really heated.
The minutemen are suppose to stop by.
Many did not want the protest to take place
fearing for their safety, immigrants felt this
would make it even harder find work it has
in some places.
will keep you posted.

A rally organized by the Ku Klux Klan attracted over 300 supporters
and counter-demonstrators in Alabama on Saturday, according to a
breaking story at
the Website for The Birmingham News.
"No violence or arrests were reported during the hour and a half
march and rally as about 30 police and sheriff's deputies watched," the
Alabama newspaper reports.
Excerpts from the article:
# The event began with about a 10-minute march by 50 people,
including about a dozen robed klansmen, to the front of the Franklin County
Courthouse for the rally. Franklin County, with a population of about
31,000, has seen a growth in its Hispanic population in recent years.
Hispanics now make up more than 7 percent of the population, nearly double
the percentage of blacks living in the county, according to 2004 census
At the rally, marchers yelled anti-immigration slogans such as "Send
them back." One robed woman held a sign saying "Remember the Alamo,
Stop Invasion Now, Save America."
Ray Larsen, imperial wizard of the National Knights of the
Klan from South Bend, Ind., told the crowd on a megaphone that illegal
immigrants are in America to take jobs. "They want to take all jobs," he
