The occupation of SW Macadam that initiated OccupyICEPDX was an organic human response to the abhorrent and inhumane treatment of innocent people seeking refuge and asylum in the United States. It was the foundation upon which a new arm of the movement would build, bringing ideas and principles long held to the forefront.
One month in, the encampment at the Northwest Detention Center immigration prison in Tacoma continues. While it has been much lower profile than #occupyicepdx, it is the site of the largest immigration prison on the west coast. Prisoners inside have repeatedly engaged in hunger strikes and other forms of resistance over the years.
Katwijk, Netherlands: Lately there has been much to do about Trump’s policies regarding refugee children, that separates children from their parents and puts them into prison. This policy is outrageous. But refugee children in the Netherlands get treated heartless and cruel by the authorities too. And like in the United States, this is a deliberate policy. To draw attention to the situation of refugee children, Geen Kind aan de Kant (No Child on the Side) organizes a demonstration in Katwijk on the 29th of September.
On July 13, 250.000 people protested against the policies of Donald Trump, in London. After ther demo a group went to the homeoffice in solidarity with migrants resisting the raids in Chinatown.
