March 1, 2018: The Seed Project youth march into DC after walking all the way from New York City to stand for all 11 million undocumented people living in this country. Heading into the Capital, they observe 11 minutes of silence in solidarity with 11 million undocumented immigrants.
At work, at school, on the street:
Gather and hold 11 minutes of silence for all eleven million undocumented immigrants.
These are our sisters and brothers!
Take pictures and spread them on social media using:
Stand against Trump’s comprehensive and white supremacist attacks on immigrants and immigration. Stand with DACA youth, with TPS recipients, with all those in detention right now. Stand with those whose families have already been torn apart and those who live each day with that fear. Trump’s “Wall” is a potent symbol and instrument of terror that concentrates the shattering of old norms and cementing Trump’s new order of: America First…Make America Great White Again.”
This all-around assault on immigrants is a horror. It is also the linchpin and battering ram of the whole fascist program being hammered into place by the Trump/Pence Regime. Fascism is a qualitative change in how society is governed. Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive “traditional values.” Once in power, fascism essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights.
