ICE Facility Attacked in Loveland

14 Jun

 

Anonymous communique:

Over the weekend of the 15th of May, an ICE field office in Loveland, Colorado was attacked.  Every window and door was shattered, totaling around twelve panes in all.

The unmarked facility is one of many such hidden ICE buildings in the U.S. that attempt to operate in secrecy.  One tactic used by ICE to maintain this secrecy is to take people from their homes in the middle of the night to be “processed” before taken to privately-owned ICE prisons.

By operating in secrecy, ICE is able to maintain this particular sub-station within a shopping and residential district without revealing the repression used to create and sustain borders.

This action was taken in the climate typified by SB1070 in Arizona and local anti-immigrant sentiment.  However, the ICE office would have been targeted regardless of legislation.

Resistance and attacks against manifestations of borders, prison and power will continue as long as families are separated and people are imprisoned, deported, and harassed.

As others have said-

NO DEPORTATIONS!!! NO BORDERS!!

Solidarity means attack.

On Friday, over 1,000 students walked out of their classes and marched to the capitol building in Denver in protest of Arizona’s fascist anti-immigrant bill SB 1070.

Corporate story here.

Independent media story here.

The next day, May Day, about 10,000 people marched on the capitol against SB 1070 while another march of about 500 people with anti-captialist revolutionary tendencies, including an anarchist bloc, marched another route.

A Call to Attack SB1070 and Prisons everywhere, on and beyond May Day 2010

29 Apr

By Marek A. Edelman

Let us not be melodramatic or ironic, SB1070 is some fascist shit. For years now ICE has been rounding up our fellow workers, stealing them from their families, children, and communities, often regardless of their immigration status. In 2009, 380,000 people were detained in 350 facilities, and the roundups continue. Detainees are held for months, even years, in conditions often worse than prisons built for “citizens” (although many who are “legally” in the US end up there anyway). Along the US-Mexico border, defense contractors have built massive walls at the safest crossing points, forcing migrant workers to make perilous desert crossings. Many will not make it alive.

FRIDAY: Walkouts and march in Denver against SB 1070

28 Apr

This Friday, there will be walkouts and a march on the capitol building in Denver as part of a state-wide and nation-wide action of solidarity with the resistance to SB 1070 in Arizona.

Ya basta! Say no to racist Arizona bill (SB 1070) that was passed into law on Friday, April 23rd @ 1:30pm.

Exactly a week later….WALKOUT in the Denver-metro area this Friday, April 30th (part of a state & nationwide action).

We can’t let history repeat itself!
Not in Arizona…Not anywhere!

1953-56: “Operation Wetback” – Local police and border patrol officials detained and deported EVERYONE they suspected of being undocumented, many of which were actually US citizens. In total, over 2 million were deported from across the US.

April 23, 2010: Passage of SB 1070 in Arizona – Regardless of whether a crime is being committed, police MUST demand proof of citizenship of EVERYONE they suspect is undocumented and arrest those who cannot provide it. This backward and divisive law promotes racial profiling and terrorizes the community.

WALKOUT in the Denver-metro area this Friday, April 30th (part of a state & nationwide action).

In most cases, students will walkout @ 1:30pm (depends on travel time & to be determined at each school…for example: Lincoln @ 12pm)

MARCH TO THE CAPITOL!!!!

Denver meeting spots:

Viking Park (Speer & Federal) @ 2pm
Sunken Gardens (11th & Speer) @ 2pm

Lincoln HS @ 12pm (will pick up students from Kepner MS & KIPP schools along the way)

AT CAPITOL:

2:30-3:30pm: Entertainment with music, spoken word/poetry, etc:

Anti-SB1070 protest in Denver

28 Apr

A small group of protestors near Coors Field this afternoon handed out flyers protesting Arizona’s new immigration law as the Rockies took on the visiting Diamondbacks.

Under the new Arizona law, officers can stop anyone based on “reasonable suspicion” to determine whether they are “unlawfully present in the United States.”
