UPDATE NO SB1070 Action in Phoenix
Today's action at the Federal court house in Phoenix was awe inspiring and showed the power of people uniting in la causa. Hundreds came to be present for the injunction hearing outside, they marched and took over the streets shutting down the very traffic heavy downtown area for a few hours, and all were peaceful.
Around 3:30 p.m. the police warned the crowd that people standing in the streets after 15 minutes would be arrested. The crowd moved to the sidewalk, but 7 people stayed in the intersection of Washington and 4th Ave and were arrested. Pics here and video will be coming soon. The message is clear. Expect more of this to come with SB1070 in existence.
