RESIST THE RAIDS: NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND BARS

jailedchildFriends,

On June 1, 2009, much of the rest of the world celebrates International Children’s Day. But not the United States. Indeed, it is not even party to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Today, thousands of children are caught up with the prison/juvenile justice system. Those of us concerned about children in detention, including those subject deportation and separation from their loved ones, will be doing a leafleting action at 5:00 p.m. in Downtown Crossing.

You can make a difference: the more people we have at the action, the more folks we can reach and build toward a successful action on Father’s Day (6/21). We’ll have the leaflets and flyers ready, we’ll also have sign up sheets and other materials ready… but we really need your ideas and energy!

On Mother’s Day, more than 60 people turned out at short notice and had a dramatic impact on the South Bay Detention Center. Our presence that day represented a commitment to the people on the inside that we will be energetically supporting their cause! So please help us go from strength to strength!

The action is being organized under the umbrella of the emerging Resist the Raids! network. We are working on a fact sheet that we will circulate shortly; visit, www.ResistTheRaids.org for updates.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the action!
