9/9 – Leafleting Against SB1070 at Debate Featuring SB1070 Author Michael Hethmon

Thursday, August 26
6:00 pm
El Colegio Charter School
42nd & Bloomington, Minneapolis

On July 29, SB1070 partially went into effect. People outraged at this racist, anti-immigrant law went to Arizona from all over the US to protest that day, including four members of U of M SDS. Come hear their report back about what they saw and participated in there. Hear about the inspiring grassroots movement in Arizona to fight back against racist, anti-immigrant laws and fight for legalization and full equality for all.

Cosponsored by U of M Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAc)
Info: MIRAc 651-389-9174 | mirac1.wordpress.com | umnsds.wordpress.com

When: Wed Aug 11 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

Where: Graves 601 Hotel – 601 North 1st Avenue


On August 11th, the owners of every MLB team in the nation will be in Minneapolis for their quarterly owners conference.

Join us as we team up with Movethegame.org to demand that the all-star game be moved out of Arizona unless SB1070 is fully repealed!

This is a great opportunity to keep the pressure on the MLB and Bud Selig to take a stand for human rights, and send Arizona a message (est. $60 Million loss in revenue) that we will not tolerate hateful laws.

Sponsored by MIRAc, BAM!, and MoveTheGame.org

For more info go to: www.Movethegame.org

When: Thu Aug 5 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Where: Target – Lake St. and Hiawatha
Why: Target donated $150,000 to MN Forward, for an ad on behalf of anti-immigrant, anti-gay, and anti-minimum wage Republican candidate for governor Tom Emmer.

Join us to demand Target stop funding this extremist candidate!

Anti-Immigrant: Emmer says that AZ law SB1070 is a wonderful first step, and continues to be a vocal supporter of it, even after a court has ruled much of the bill to be unconstitutional and promoting of racial profiling.

Anti-LGBTQ: Emmer supports a Christian rock band in Minnesota that travels around the state saying that it’s moral and righteous for religious people to kill gays and lesbians.

Anti-Minimum Wage: Emmer has said he wants to cut minimum for servers, claiming many make over $100,000 a year.

Keep corporate cash out of our elections! This donation makes Target one of the very first companies to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision allowing unlimited corporate cash in elections.

Bring signs and friends!

This is a video made from the MIRAc & BAM! campaign protest in St. Paul, MN on July 29, 2010. This is the guerrilla theater that was part of the protest. Stop the epidemic of anti-immigrant laws! Repeal SB1070 in AZ, repeal 287g, stop HF3830 in MN!
