LA Eyewitness Report: Refugee Caravan
Over the past few weeks, a caravan of several thousand would-be asylum seekers has been making the dangerous journey from Honduras to the US-Mexico border facing state repression and violence at every step of the way.
A team of journalists from Liberation News traveled to Mexico in early November to document the refugee caravan. Join us for an eyewitness report and video from PSL organizers Gloria la Riva and Adan Plascencia documenting the stories of those on the caravan and the mass support they have received from the people of Mexico as they traveled to the border
While the GOP and the Democrats both managed to spin these people’s plight into election propaganda, speakers from the Party for Socialism and Liberation will instead analyze the reasons behind the migrant caravan and focus on how we can build a movement for solidarity. Our discussion will dissect how United States imperialism and right-wing policy have shaped the desperate conditions that led to this latest high-profile demonstration against the status quo in Central America and Honduras as well as reactionary United States immigration policy and the militarized US-Mexico and Mexico-Guatemala borders. Join us on Friday, November 30th at 7pm.
