How to Protest the Anti-Immigrant March in San Francisco

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

There is no doubt that the death of Kate Steinle was horrible and tragic. The sudden death of someone in the prime of their lives is always heartbreaking. But the way the Right has politicized it and used it as leverage to push their anti-immigrant agenda is sickening. I know a number of people who were friends with Kate and they’ve said that her parents are deeply hurt by the way the Right has used their daughter’s death this way. If you’re still confused as to why the jury declared not guilty, read this article from someone who was an alternate juror on the case.

Using Kate’s death as an excuse to attack sanctuary cities and undocumented immigrants, the Far Right is coming to San Francisco on 12/16 and having a “March Against Sanctuary Cities”. As we’ve discussed on this site before, being a sanctuary city actually makes San Francisco safer and I know that most of you agree. That’s why I’m sharing the following info about how to counter protest this stupid anti-immigrant march.

The following info comes from the FB event invite to “March for Sanctuary Cities”, and action  As plans will probably change between now and the protest you should RSVP for the event here so you can stay updated.

The far-right is having a “March Against Sanctuary Cities” in San Francisco on the afternoon of December 16th. We are organizing a counter-protest with a march.

We will organize to resist, stand up, and fight the system of racism that is currently happening since Trump became the president. Racism has been around this world for hundreds of years and since Trump came into office, the white supremacy, KKK, and the far-rights think that they can come out and just show all this hatred and racism in the Bay Area, but we are not going to let that happen anymore as we are prepared to fight back this system by any means necessary until they fix this broken system.

We’ve invited all groups that are down for the cause to join us on the 16th of December in San Francisco Union Square at noon to fight against hatred and racism.

If you would like to endorse the action, help organize, or volunteer your time, please consider filling out this short Google form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

    Go ahead, start fights, get more support for Trump and the GOP. Every time you addlepates “protest” you do more harm than you are able to comprehend. Go ahead, bring your bike locks and your professors, you can get away with it here, but everyone watching all over the nation will be voting against everything you think you stand for.
