Rally: 1:00 PM, steps across from the Massachusetts Statehouse

The government in Washington has stepped up attacks on migrants to levels not seen in years. Trump's attacks on Muslim migrants were only the beginning. Deportations are accelerating. Trump is terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and has pardoned the racist ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio. He also threatens to shut down the government if a Mexican border wall is not built. He threatens the Temporary Protected Status program. This comes on top of his recent bigoted executive order against transgender troops in the US armed forces and his defense of Fascists in Charlottesville, NC. Claiming that human caused climate change is a "hoax", the Trump Administration has pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord. The falsehood of this claim has yet again been demonstrated by the horrendous hurricanes that have devastated the Gulf Coast. As US wars have created massive debt and refugees internationally, the consequences of corporate greed at home have created refugees within our own borders. Millions of youth and decent hard working people are under attack! Trump and his cheerleaders in the U.S. Congress are leading a generalized assault on our lives, rights, and living conditions. The leading edge of this assault today is the stepped up attacks against migrants. Enough is enough! An injury to one is an injury to all! Mobilize September 16!
