JUSTICIA EN LA FRONTERA/JUSTICE AT THE BORDER
FUNDRAISER! Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 5:00pm until 9:00pm
at the Centro Cultural de la Raza
Since 2010, 19 people have been killed by Border Patrol agents. Within the last few months the U.S. Border Patrol shot and killed Munique Tachiquin, Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez, Guillermo Arevalo Pedroza, Juan Pablo Perez Santillan, and Byron Neftali Sosa Orellana. It is extremely rare for U.S. Border authorities to face criminal charges, but how many more people have to die before these acts of unjustifiable murder are held accountable? The disproportionate use of lethal force is unacceptable under any circumstances.
It is for this reason that our community and organizations are coming together for a protest at the San Ysidro/Tijuana Border, Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 2:00pm. The purpose of the fundraiser is to raise funds to bring family members of the victims to share their tragic stories and to demand justice for their loved ones.
