6/9 RESIST THE RAIDS DRUM CIRCLE @ MA State House 6-9PM (Thur)

Resist the Raids, a state-wide network to stop raids, detentions, and
deportations, will host their drum circle in front of the State House 6/9
Thursday from 6-9pm in solidarity with Mass Hope 2010 vigil!

Mass Hope 2010 is a continuous 24 hour, 7 days a week vigil in front of the
Massachusetts State House to protest Senate Amendment 172.1, to raise
awareness of this amendment to the general public and to hope that the
Senate, the Congress and Governor Patrick retract and veto SA 172.1.

SA 172.1 include:

   - Creating an anonymous telephone ‘hotline’ where callers can report
   people that they suspect are using false documents or hiring undocumented
   workers. (This would create fear and break apart families and communities
   and will be costly for MA as the gov’t will need to staff the hotline and
   investigate every report.)
   - Blocking limited and basic health care for undocumented people. (This
   would create barriers to health care for all and put us all at risk for
   higher emergency costs and communal diseases.)
   - Requiring stricter requirements for housing, social security and health
   benefits, for documented or undocumented people. (This requirement would
   make receiving benefits for all, especially poor and lower income
people,more difficult. This is redundant because people without
documents can not
   receive social security, welfare, food stamps and federal housing
   - And many more hateful anti-immigrant, costly, hateful amendments!

Also, We need you! Can you participate in the vigil? Can your organization
sponsor the Mass Hope 2010 campaign? Can you organize a teach-in, workshop,
art night, etc. at the vigil?

For more information, please visit us at the State House, anytime, day or
night! Visit www.masshope2010.com or call Lily Huang from the Student
Immigrant Movement, 857-204-5550.
