Lights for Liberty

CODEPINK is co-sponsoring Lights for Liberty, an international evening of action calling for the closure of filthy, overcrowded DHS migrant detention camps that subject asylum seekers to treatment so inhumane it has drawn the ire of the United Nations. More than 600 events are being planned worldwide. Below are the cities where CODEPINK staff and volunteers are attending vigils — if you live nearby, please join us and RSVP below! 

Here is a list of cities across the country where Lights for Liberty Vigils are happening — if you’re interested in attending a vigil near you on behalf of CODEPINK, you can email Carley and she will be in touch to provide materials and support for the event!

    https://www.democracynow.org/2019/7/10/john_carlos_frey_sand_and_blood John Carlos Frey’s new book, “Sand and Blood: America’s Stealth War on the Mexico Border,” chronicles how the U.S.-Mexico border became a war zone through decades of deadly bipartisan immigration policy. But it also examines the border through the personal history of his family. Born in Tijuana, Mexico, Frey moved to the U.S. with his family when he was a toddler in 1965. He grew up in southern San Diego, California, where he witnessed the effects of American immigration policy on the borderlands every day. His father was an American citizen. His mother was a Mexican immigrant. Frey’s book is dedicated “To my mother, an immigrant from Mexico who came to America to provide a better life for me and my siblings, and to all the mothers and fathers who had the same intention and lost their lives in the attempt.”

    https://www.democracynow.org/2019/7/10/headlines/jewish_activists_arrested_after_protesting_migrant_detention_on_capitol_hill Never Again Action said, “As Jews, we know what the separation of families, the covert rounding-up of people and the creation of concentration camps can lead to. We refuse to wait and see what happens next.” They also said, “We know what happens when people unaffected by crises act as bystanders and look the other way. We will not stay silent while our historical trauma is weaponized to distract from the terror that our government is unleashing on immigrant communities.”

    The “Sanctuary City/State Financial and Criminal Accountability Law”
    Every politician that votes for or endorses the mythical “sanctuary” from Federal Immigration Law shall be subject to obtaining and providing a Surety Bond to secure 100% Reparations to any Legal Citizen injured, murdered, raped, robbed, or in any way harmed, including mental distress, by said Illegal persons in the area. By their refusal to honor their oath to uphold the Constitution and the Law of the land the said politicians have negated any “governmental immunity”. Said politicians will serve the same sentence as the ILLEGALS they enable in the same cell as the ILLEGAL. Said politicians are Personally Criminal Accomplices to any crimes committed by the Criminals they are Harboring. Said politicians are Personally Financially Liable for damages, reparations, and to “make whole” any Legal Citizen harmed by the Criminals they are Harboring.

    For decades the “liberals” have been driving around with “FREE TIBET” bumper stickers and demanding China quit FLOODING BUHDDIST TIBET WITH ETHNIC CHINESE. Now they support the same thing they have been protesting ……….., being done to Christian Europe.
    Even the DALAI LAMA spoke out http://yournewswire.com/dalai-lama-europe-migrants/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/14th_Dalai_Lama Immigration[edit]
    In September 2018, speaking at a conference in Sweden’s third-largest city, Malmö, home to a large immigrant population, the Dalai Lama said “I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country”.174175
    Speaking to German reporters in 2016, the Dalai Lama said there are “too many” refugees in Europe, adding that “Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country”. He also said that “Germany is Germany.”176177
