Children out of cages!
ICE out of NYC!
DHS out of everywhere!
This Tuesday, July 10, Mayor DeBlasio and Police Commissioner are scheduled to speak at the National Homeland Security Conference at the Sheraton Hotel, where they are rolling out the red carpet for hundreds of homeland security officials and dozens of private corporations that are profiting off of mass deportation and family detention. The Mayor claims NYC is a “sanctuary city.” But there can be no sanctuary as long as City Hall, and local law enforcement continue to collaborate daily with ICE and DHS, putting thousands of New Yorkers and their families at risk. Let’s show up in massive numbers to say it loud, and say it clear: ICE is not welcome here!
This is an unpermitted sidewalk protest, with a moving picket, signs, and chants.
We will both hosting a potluck lunch after the demo at Foley Square! Feel free to bring any food you want, this is a collective effort!
