Hundreds of people from Boston, Chelsea, Everett, Lynn and Revere came out on May 1st, International Workers Day March. It was a tremendous demonstration of solidarity for justice in defense of workers rights. NUBE members marched from East Boston to Chelsea promoting NO to S-COMM and I LOVE Immigrant East Boston signs.
NUBE members participated at the Administration Chelsea “Secure Communities” Public Hearing and members testified against the program’s intention to promote racial profiling, discrimination and continuing to enforce separation of families. Although the administration stated it would not make a decision until they hear from the community they decided to cancel the Boston Hearing. Boston must be heard! Please come to our next monthly gathering on May 21st at 11am to hear about the S-Comm Campaign and share ideas on how to say strong and loud NO to S-COMM in Boston!
NUBE is launching its Say NO to S-Comm Campaign! Members will be working to educate, mobilize and organize our neighbors against the implementation of the “Secure Communities” Program in our community. This program was created by Immigration Custom and Enforcement (ICE). It’s a partnership with local enforcement agents by sharing the fingerprints of those that they arrest with ICE which can result in those that are arrested to be detained and deported even if they have not been convicted of a crime.
