Environmental Justice Protest at San Francisco ICE Headquarters

August 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

MONDAY AUGUST 5, 2019: ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE PROTEST AT ICE HEADQUARTERS IN SAN FRANCISCO.

Join Greenaction and other Climate Justice, Environmental Justice, and Environmentalist Allies in a noon hour protest at ICE headquarters on Monday, August 5. This is part of a month-long campaign to demonstrate broad opposition to the administration’s brutal treatment of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.

What: Climate Justice, Environmental Justice, and Environmentalist day of action during the Month of Momentum.

When: Monday, August 5, noon to 1 p.m.

Where: ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) office, 630 Sansome Street, San Francisco

Why: We are outraged and ashamed about the inhumanity at the border. We want to show up as environmental activists in solidarity with other progressive, issue-focused groups in opposition to the brutally corrosive policies and politics of the current administration.

Many people around the world are fleeing their homes because of war, gang violence, poverty—and increasingly, people are becoming climate refugees, moving because their homes are becoming unlivable due to climate change (sea level rise, desertification, extreme heat, fires, etc.). Details: Bring a sign or an idea for a sign linking the climate crisis to the immigrant crisis. We will chant, sing, and walk in front of the ICE headquarters during the lunch hour.

This is an opportunity to contribute to strengthening social justice movements across a range of too-often-siloed issues and to contribute to strengthening the broad progressive movement that is necessary to counter rabid nationalism, racism, and greed at the rotten heart of forces aiming to destroy Earth for its current and future inhabitants.
