Students at UC Berkeley are outraged at the recent passage of Arizona’s SB1070, a bill that legalizes racial profiling and targets migrant communities. As privileged students who have access to the university but remain grounded in our roots and our past it is our duty to continue building on the movement to defend the right of all migrant peoples. Migration is a human right!
We are guided by the spirit of past movements (from Cesar Chavez, to the American Indian Movement, to the Black Panthers and twLF). We are committed to do a hunger strike until our demands are met by Chancellor Birgeneau.
