Not 1 More Deportation Rally and March 4.10.14

 Listen to this moving testimony of Patrick Fierro who got arrested in today's demonstration (April 10, 2014), along with Emily Freeman and Alejandra Gomez on either side of him for crossing federal jurisdictional lines in front of the LBJ Library. Ironically, today was a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. This rally and march calling for an end to deportations mirrors that very same call for social justice and human dignity that fueled the legislation that expanded civil rights to U.S. minorities 50 years ago.
