Ollin Solidarity Caravan: Freedom of Movement is a Human Right

Saturday, November 17th, 12-3pm, US Immigration Courts at JFK Federal Building, 15 New Sudbury Street, Room 320, Boston

Ollin is the Nahuatl word for movement and everyone has the right to move whether it be because of political, economic or corporate violence, oppression, racial or sexual discrimination, environmental catastrophe or circumstances, to connect with family and friends, or just because they have the desire to do so. We will gather outside immigration court to participate in a vigil; a land honoring ceremony; dance, drumming, and music; to say the names and share the stories of those on the migrant caravan being stopped by armed military, borders and walls, along with those facing ICE violence and imprisonment right here in Boston.

Comment on the Proposed Public Charge Rule

(use the form at the link below)

The Trump administration wants to slam the door on working-class immigrants by subjecting anyone who earns less than 250% of the federal poverty line ($62,750 for a family of 4) to intense scrutiny, and effectively excluding anyone below 125% of FPL ($31,375 for a family of 4). Immigrants applying for a green card or visa could be deemed to be a “public charge” – someone who depends on the government – and turned away if they earn below 250% of FPL and use any of a wide range of public programs for working families, or are deemed to be likely to use them in the future. This is an assault on America’s fundamental values, and we must fight back.

Help Lawrence Cosecha Members Assist Immigrants at the Border

Three volunteer organizers (Gabriela, Reyna, and Carlos) are raising money to fly out to the Brownsville, TX border and buy supplies to donate to the asylum seekers and migrants with their bare necessities. We are asking our community to help us get there so we may support our friends crossing, help local grassroots and community movements on the field, document efforts, and create the conditions for others to come to join as we welcome our brothers and sisters in the caravans with radical love. We plan to arrive in Brownsville, TX as soon as possible and will be staying for several weeks to a month. Your contribution will help us with flights and expenses to support migrants directly with food, clothes, and hygienic products.
