March & Rally to End Prosecution of Migrants

Date: 
Friday, December 11, 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Location: 
Hilton on E. 4th to the Federal Courthouse Plaza (501 5th St.)

On December 11, during the US Human Rights Network conference in Austin, join us for a march & rally to protest the mass prosecution of migrants! The march begins at noon from the Hilton on E. 4th St. and ends at the Federal Courthouse Plaza. We will perform street theater on the steps of the courthouse that uses aspects of actual court proceedings to expose the criminalization and dehumanization inherent in these prosecutions. This event is part of a week of action from December 9-16, marking the 10th anniversary of Operation Streamline, a policy that initiated the mass prosecution of migrants for what the government calls “illegal entry” and “illegal reentry.”
