4 - 4:30 PM: Justice for José Antonio: Emergency Community Briefing

Donald Trump’s continued fear-mongering of border communities and asylum seekers are unfolding amidst the courtroom proceedings of the second federal trial of US Border Patrol officer Lonnie Swartz, who shot into Mexico through the militarized border wall in Ambos Nogales, killing 16-year old José Antonio Elena Rodríguez on October 10, 2012.

Join the Border Patrol Victims Network to listen the latest updates on the case and demand the prosecutor assigned to the case to include important information and witnesses. At 4:30, we invite you to join the Troops Off the Border! Asylum for the Caravan! and demand an end to further militarization of the border and to stop violence at the hands of security forces, including Border Patrol and the recently deployed 5,200 troops. A successful prosecution in José Antonio's case would set a precedent of accountability for future cases of human rights abuses in the borderlands.

Where: Evo A. DeConcini Federal Building & US Courthouse 405 W Congress St, Tucson, Arizona 85701

4:30 - 6 PM: Troops Off the Border! Asylum for the Caravan!

Refugees from Central America are fleeing violence, corruption, and political repression. The US government has had a role in the creation of these conditions. Now nearly 3,000 women, children, and men are travelling through Mexico to the US to seek asylum from the horrors of their home countries. President Trump has responded with 5,200 troops and has promised up to 15,000 to the border. This will cost $220M of Us tax payer money to force soldiers into law enforcement duty. Trump has approved their violent engagement with these families by saying "consider their rock a rifle." The Tucson Anti-War Committee and People's Defense Initiative stand together with all progressive forces of Tucson to demand: Troops Off the Border! Asylum for the Caravan!

Where: 300 W Congress St, Tucson
