SB1070 - Week of Action

Even though SB1070 was signed into law on Friday by Governor Jan Brewer, those of us opposed to this unjust and unconstitutional move by Arizona will keep holding vigil and protesting.

The Arizona Republican Party is going to learn that they underestimated the determination we have to rip away their political power. They've already embarrassed our state, now it's time for them to be embarrassed politically. George W. Bush loved to say that "history will judge my Presidency" when faced with criticism. Well, so will Governor Jan Brewer, Russell Pearce, Joe Arpaio, and the rest of the Minutemen Caucus of the AZ GOP - and it won't be positive if we have anything to say about it.

Here's what's on the agenda, so far, this week:

Protest Governor Jan Brewer today in Tucson
DoubleTree Hotel - 445 Alvernon Way (between Broadway & 22nd Street)
4/26 - Noon to 3pm

Derechos Humanos is hosting sign-making and carpools from their office, details here

Saturday, May 1st National Day of Action
