UJP Activist: First they Came for the Immigrants...








FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE IMMIGRANTS...
============================================================






 

CAMBRIDGE UNITED FOR JUSTICE WITH PEACE, 



THE ACLU OF MASSACHUSETTS AND 



SOMERVILLE-MEDFORD UNITED FOR JUSTICE WITH PEACE



 Invite you to



 



FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE IMMIGRANTS…



A forum on Human Rights, Constitutional Rights, Your Rights



 

With:  Melissa Gonzalez-Brenes, Chair, Cambridge Human Rights Commission

Nancy Murray, Director of Education, ACLU of Massachusetts

Cathy Hoffman, Cambridge UJP

In the aftermath of Sept 11, there have been dramatic and chilling changes in
government practices toward immigrant communities. These changes have extended
to surveillance of those expressing dissent or protesting US policies, and
beyond.

This forum will include testimonies from people whose rights have been
jeopardized by the Homeland Security Surveillance State. It will also provide an
overview of policy changes that are eroding basic constitutional rights, and the
implications for us all.

 

“First they came for the immigrants…”  derives from a famous WW11 quote,
attributed to Pastor Neimoller, referring to the passivity of Germans following
the Nazi rise to power. They came for one group after another until…they came
for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

This event is free.  Please forward to others.
