Community Self Defense at SFO
Our communities fight for self determination. And this past weekend we actualized it. This past Sunday, ten thousand people joined alongside the leadership of AROC, ASATA, and other grassroots organizations to shut down San Francisco International Airport (SFO). We showed up to resist the Trump regime’s racist executive order repressing the ability to of our families and friends from Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Iraq to travel freely. We took direct action to prohibit all business as usual at SFO, until all immigrant people being forcibly detained by US Customs and Border Protection on the airport were freed. And we won. All those detained under the Executive Order were released on Sunday. This was made possible by every individual who took action: every lawyer, every family member, every organization and every worker that joined in solidarity at SFO.
