The June 30th protests are on and organizers say they are doubling down on them. The “Families Belong Together” event will be from 11 a.m .to 1 p.m. at The Diag.
Organizers say: “The Administration is shifting, thanks to public organizing and pressure, away from unapologetically separating families. But their “solution” to the crisis they created is baby jails — babies, kids, and families will be detained indefinitely. And there’s no plan for reunification of the thousands of families who were already torn apart — with children shipped all over the country away from their parents.”
The group’s posture is:
— Let’s be clear that this response from the Administration wouldn’t have happened without all the outrage — AND be clear the crisis isn’t CLOSE to solved yet
— We will triple down on our organizing for June 30. Don’t let our feet off the gas. We have momentum.
— We will shift our demands towards “Reunite the families. Close the baby jails. And fire the abusers”
