Buffalo demonstrates solidarity with El Paso Firme

Im/migrant rights supporters held a rally and march in Buffalo, N,Y., on Sept. 7 in solidarity with El Paso Firme, taking place in El Paso, Texas, on the same day. The National Action Against White Supremacy was called by the Border Network for Human Rights, RAICES Texas, the National Day Laborer Organizing Network and allies.

Buffalo demonstrates solidarity with El Paso Firme, Sept. 7.

Activists from Buffalo AntiWar, Erie County Green Party, International Action Center Buffalo and Workers World Party came out to join hands with victims of the racist massacre in El Paso and all who are targeted by Trump’s white supremacist, anti-migrant and anti-people-of-color, fascist rhetoric. The demonstrators included not only activists from Western New York, but also those from Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York City and Philadelphia who were in Buffalo to attend the Workers World Party Marxism School.

As the march took off chanting, “El Paso to Buffalo, white supremacy’s got to go,” “I-C-E, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide,” and “never again is now, close the camps down,” bystanders joined in and drivers in cars, trucks and buses honked their agreement.
