The Militant Labor Forum presents:
Protest ICE Raids!
Legalize All Immigrants Now!
More than 300 federal immigration agents
accompanied by state and local police raided Michael
Bianco Inc., a New Bedford, Massachusetts leather
manufacturer, March 6.
Agents herded more than 350 of the companys 500
employees onto buses and shipped them to detention
facilities close to two hours away at Fort Devens near
Later that evening more than a hundred friends
and relatives of those arrested gathered at Our Lady
of Guadalupe at Saint James Church, where they made
initial plans for providing care for children left
parentless by the migra roundup, legal steps to fight
possible deportations, and participation in protests
against the raid.
Since then immigrant workers and their supporters
have staged numerous protests against the raid and the
governments drive to deport hundreds.
Come discuss why raids like the one in New Bedford are
a blow against the entire labor movement and why all
working people and fighters for social justice should
join in demanding: Halt the ICE raids! Legalize all
Speaker: Bill Estrada, Socialist Workers Party; others
