Campus Feeder March
Sample Gates starting at 5:30 PM
Bring the migrant strike to IU, confronting the politicians in Indy who passed SB 423, the sanctuary campus ban! At a time of increasing state racism, we must defend university autonomy against those who would interfere with higher education in the name of discrimination.
Courthouse Square at 6:30 PM
Movimiento Cosecha has organized a call to action for International Labor Day May 1st, for migrant workers and their supporters to refuse to work, go to school, or make purchases on this day. In solidarity with this movement, we are holding a campus rally at Sample Gates, which will culminate in a march to join the greater Bloomington community rally for A Day Without
Our struggles on campus are not isolated from those of our general
community. In solidarity with the migrant strike, we will not go to work, we will not go to school, and we will not buy. We must push back against the looming threat of the Muslim ban, cuts to the social wage, and ICE holds in the local jail.
The march from Sample Gates to the courthouse will be accessible. If possible, please wear red or a red bandana all day to show support for the migrant strike!

Bloomington Friends: Let’s meet together today, Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 4pm @ the Courthouse Square to support our immigrant and refugee communities of all backgrounds and statuses who are being criminalized, dehumanized, and endangered by the violence of the Trump administration. Please bring your own signs. #NoBanNoWall
How did Trump come to power, and what does that tell us about the era we are entering? What strategies will be effective in countering repressive government policies and the rise of grassroots nationalism?
Framing Trump‘s victory in a global context, we will explore various approaches to self-organization and self-defense, drawing on the principles of mutual aid and direct action. The speakers will also present updates about organizing for resistance to the inauguration in DC on January 20.

Thoughts ran in me that words and writing were
nothing and must die, for action is the essence of all
and if thou dost not act, thou dost nothing.
