|11/8: MAKE THE CALL, SIGN THE PETITION TO SUPPORT SERGIO - It's a matter of life or death!
Released 09 November 2012  By ROC United
MAKE THE CALL, SIGN THE PETITION TO SUPPORT SERGIO - It's a matter of life or death!
This week, there were some great victories for workers, immigrants, the LGBT community, and more BUT the work for us and for the people we fight for continues.
One of our leaders of the Dignity at Darden campaign in Los Angeles has been in an ICE detention facility since May of this year. Sergio is a ROC-LA member, a gay man living with AIDS, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. Doctors found a tumor in his head - but Sergio is not getting the medical treatment he needs.
Please take a minute to sign this petition: http://action.dreamactivist.org/california/sergio/
Sergio was told he needs chemotherapy as soon as possible but he is not getting the treatment he needs in detention. His health is deteriorating rapidly, and without the proper treatment Sergio could die soon. Santa Ana City Jail has a record of abuses of gay and transgender detainees, delays in medical care, and reports of mistreatment. Sergio needs to be released immediately!
Please take a minute to sign the petition, share it with others, and make a call to ICE!
Call ICE – John Morton @ 202-732-3000
Sample Script: “Hi, I am calling to urge ICE to release Sergio Vazquez Gutierrez (A# 200-243-222) from the Santa Ana City Jail in California. Sergio was recently diagnosed with cancer and a tumor in his head. He needs immediate surgery to remove the tumor before it's too late. Sergio must be released from detention to get the treatment he urgently needs. Let him go!"
