Members of Indivisible Morongo Basin and Indivisible Yucaipa attended the Shut Down Adelanto Rally Thursday night. Yolanda reports back:
The rally organized by Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice to demand an investigation into the most recent death and immediate release of all detainees with a medical history, was a success.
At least 40 people attended the event. The names of all deceased detainees were read, we prayed for them, we chanted, and we had a minute of silence. IC4IJ had a couple of speakers and a speaker from ACLU was also present.
45’s supporters were also present. They had a non-stop siren with the intention of drowning out our chants and speakers. They spewed hateful speech non-stop and called us sinners.
Our side was peaceful. Prior to and after the event, music was played. Most people danced at the end before peacefully leaving the rally.
