Join us in a mass demonstration at the U.S.-México border to demand justice in our communities!

We demand:

· An end to the deaths of migrants along the U.S.-México border

· An immediate halt to the construction of walls between the U.S. and México

· The immediate removal of the U.S. National Guard from the Arizona border

· An investigation of the effects of border enforcement policies on border communities, particularly from an environmental and health perspective

· The creation of an independent entity, with full investigatory powers, to look into allegations of abuse by law enforcement officials under the Department of Homeland Security

Nogales, Arizona, US: 10am: Meet at Techea City Park (777 N. Grant Ave.) in Nogales. The march to the border will begin there.
