|Challenge the "Minuteman Project" Planning Mtg and April Actions
Released 31 March 2005  By National Alliance for Human Rights
From the National Alliance for Human Rights:
Saludos de parte de la Alianza Para Derechos Humanos!
You are urged to participate in the efforts designed to challenge the "Minuteman Project," that will be carried out on the U.S./México border (Sonora/Arizona) against the undocumented migrating from México into the United States.
The Minuteman Project organizers and participants have gone on record as saying that their efforts are peaceful; however, they go on to say that they will use the force necessary to stop the influx.
The National Alliance for Human Rights along with various other organizations and individuals will be conducting a counter to the Minuteman project. Specifically, we will be conducting efforts on both sides of the border from March 31 through April 3.
Moreover, we are supporting the efforts of the Border Action Network and the Coalition for Human Rights. We are calling on you to participate in some or all of these activities. Attached is a list of these activities.
Saturday, March 26 from 9AM to Noon

While in Agua Prieta, we will stay at the Hotel Plaza, which is located close to the Border and which can accommodate most, if not all, of the participants. Room rates are 2 persons one bed $62.80, and 2 persons 2 beds $74.00. Please call 01152633-338-9404 to reserve your room.
