Today Cosecha will announce its plan to launch coordinated direct action against the Deportation System in Massachusetts and across the country. We will launch a wave of historic sit-ins to demand that Massachusetts end deportation NOW. Stop breaking up families. Stop intimidating people who stand up for themselves. Stop criminalizing people for simply wanting to live.

We will hold a direct action training Sunday 4/23 @ 9am. We’re looking for 50 more people to take action. This is the time to show up for undocumented people.

ACTIONS TODAY. ACTIONS NEXT WEEK. ACTIONS MAY 1ST
ACTIONS TILL WE WIN PERMANENT PROTECTION FOR UNDOCUMENTED PEOPLE.

Alex Carrillo is a father and a farmworker who was taken by ICE for standing up for his rights.

Maribel Diaz is a mother of four who was deported after 15 years working for this country, separated from her family.

Juan Manuel Montest is a student — protected by DACA — who thought the promises of this country would apply to him, but was still deported.

If we want the barbarity of this deportation system to end, we must win permanent protection, respect, and dignity for undocumented people. That’s why we will strike on May 1st.
