JOIN US: Rally against Trump's threat of mass arrest/deportation of all undocumented residents this Saturday, June 22nd, 11 a.m.
Trump's threat to round up all undocumented residents this week may be campaign blather but his blather is never innocent. We cannot let this escalation of action against immigrant families be normalized and go un-protested. Whether or not this grandiose threat can be accomplished, it inspires fear among immigrants and we may see at least some increased ICE activity in response to Trump's proclamation.
Please join us for a rally this Saturday, June 22 at 11am on the northwest lawn of the Community Center in uptown Port Townsend, outside the Farmers' Market. If we get a large turnout, we will have a simultaneous rally at the Food Coop Triangle at Kearney and Sims Way. The address for the Community Center is: 620 Tyler St, Port Townsend, WA 98368
--Bring your own sign or make a sign at Chris and Art's house, Friday, June 21 at 4:30pm. They live at 1126 Sheridan Ave., at the corner of 12th and Sheridan.
--On Saturday, please don't expand the rally into the Farmers' Market. Demonstrations aren't allowed inside the market and we respect that.
--Please be aware of traffic and safety.
--RSVP's to firstname.lastname@example.org are not required, but welcome for planning purposes.
We're sick of these threats and fear-mongering. Please spread this message widely and ask your friends to join you. If not now, when? PLEASE COME!
