May Day Demos Turn Violent In Northwest, Dozens Arrested

Posted May 09, 2017

Undocumented immigrants rallied protesters Monday through the bars of a mock jail cell outside the Bernalillo Metropolitan Court House to denounce the "deportation of black and brown bodies".

Organized by the New Mexico Dream Team, a youth-lead statewide network immigrant group, the rally aimed to showcase the "power of community protection networks and empower more immigrants and people of conscience to join in the fight for sanctuaries of safety".

Police in Oakland, California, arrested at least four activists who chained themselves together to block a county building.

Police are threatening more arrests at the Alameda County Administration Building as more than 100 protesters demand an end to what they say is a collaboration between county law enforcement and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

On these same streets, just three months earlier, on Donald Trump's inauguration day, a handful of protesters turned to violence. "If we don't pass the safe communities act, local and state police are going to use our taxpayer dollars to help deport immigrants and therefore waste even more taxpayer money".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions - an immigration hardliner and one of Trump's earliest surrogates - reiterated Trump's position in March, saying that the USA would not go after immigrants with clean records. "We will not buy anything". Schools were open, and the district said it was working with principals and substitute teachers to make sure classes wouldn't be disrupted.

Zalaya offered a simple message for the Republican president: "All of us, we are immigrants".

Sunderland bosses want me to stay, says David Moyes
What that is isn't yet clear, but anything less than £20 million will be met with derision by Sunderland fans. The Scot also said striker Jermain Defoe, who has scored 14 goals this season, could leave the club.

"Many people like my husband simply do not fit into this category", said Scribner. We work hard. We build up our own business.

A handful of Trump supporters wearing baseball caps with his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" are in attendance.

Tens of thousands of immigrants and their allies are expected to rally in cities such as New York, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles.

"Immigrants strengthen our economy by creating millions of jobs every year, running nearly a fifth of the small businesses across America, including myself", said Angie Fetherston, CEO of Drink Company, which closed all four of its D.C. -area bars on Monday.

Manuel Valencia walked amid thousands of protesters in San Jose with a Mexican flag wrapped around his shoulders.

Patanjali looks at doubling production in a year
Patanjali has just declared emphatic victory over other traditional FMCG players, by clocking Rs 10,216 crore revenue in 2016-17. Its personal care brand Keshkanti had clocked sales of Rs 825 crore and herbal soap Rs 574 crore .

Democratic Socialists of America, a leftist organizing group that has seen a surge in popularity following the election of Trump, is among the groups organizing protests on May Day in multiple cities, including New York City, where the group is linking up with an immigrant rights' organization in Union Square.

Those protesting say they were not only defending workers' rights, but immigrants' rights too. Larger crowds are expected to return this year as immigrant groups have joined with Muslim organizations, women's advocates and others in their united opposition to Trump administration policies. "What's happening now, with Trump's immigration policies, is the same situation", said San Francisco resident Joyce Nakamura.

Charmers Cafe in Rogers Park was offering free coffee to people on their way to or back from the protests, as it had in February for the Day Without Immigrants. The travel ban and sanctuary order were temporarily halted by legal challenges.

This is all part of a much bigger, global day of action for workers rights groups worldwide.

They hope large crowds will get President Donald Trump and congressional lawmakers to rethink efforts to expand deportations and pressure local governments to assist federal deportation agents.
