Texas: Protest children, tent and migrant prisons

TEXAS: Protest children, tent and migrant prisons

October 6...Saturday. Val Verde County's GEO Detention Center. Texas Jail Project, Grassroots Leadership and Freedom Ambassadors are collaborating on a protest against the notorious Val Verde County GEO facility.

October 12-13. Raymondville Walk II. The Raymondville tent prison camp is the most repugnant of all prison camps. We will conduct a walk from Harlingen on Friday the 12th and Saturday the 13th...and hold a vigil midday on the 13th.

October 14-16. Hutto Walk III. The most flagrant of all prisons in America. Innocent children are victims of a government without a conscience. We will conduct a walk from the Hutto family prison camp in Taylor, Texas on Sunday, October 14-and arrive at the County Commissioners Court in Georgetown on the 16th. We will then support the local residents of Williamson County as they challenge the County Commissioners that signed and renewed the contracts and leases to imprison innocent children.

LULAC National and the Cesar Chavez Legacy Foundation are collaborating with Freedom Ambassadors with these walks and vigils. All these prison camps are greedy private "for profit" prisons that cost taxpayers to imprison desperate people without the entitlement of human rights. We oppose this violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. No matter where in the country you are, if you and/or your organization might be interested in showing solidarity, please "reply" and let us know.

If you have representatives that would like to participate...please let us know.Jay Johnson-Castro Sr.jay@villadelrio.com
