No Ban No Wars Protest
Thursday, March 16th @4:30pm @ US Federal Courts Building, 300 S 4th St. Minneapolis
President Donald Trump signed a revised Muslim Ban executive order on March 6th. The Minnesota Anti-War Committee will hold a protest at 4:30pm at the US Federal Courts Building (300 S 4th St, Minneapolis) on Thursday, March 16th, the day the executive order will be put into effect. Although changes to the original January 27th ban include the exemption of green card holders and the removal of the indefinite ban on Syrian refugees, we still see it as a continuation of the racist, xenophobic, and Islamophobic policies of the Trump administration.
The original executive order was defeated when thousands of people across the country protested at airports and marched through cities–including 15,000 marching on January 31st in Minneapolis–to protest the ban. These protests prompted a federal judge in Washington state to file an injunction freezing the order, which was upheld on appeal by the 9th Circuit.
Make no mistake that this is still very much a Muslim Ban. Immigrants from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen will be targeted and denied entry into the U.S., and refugees won’t be accepted here either. It is criminal for the U.S. to bomb and attack other countries and then turn them away when the U.S. has destroyed their homelands. It is outrageous for Trump to do this while at the same time threatening Iran, planning to expand the war in Syria, and increasing the bombing attacks in Yemen!”
Resistance to Trump’s first month in office is unprecedented and will continue. Minnesotans will not be silent while their Somali, Arab and Muslim neighbors are targeted by the federal government!
Organized by the Anti-War Committee.
