HAPPENING NOW in Seattle: My daughter has joined other Jewish activists in civil disobedience #JewsAgainstICE. ICE office now in lockdown. 700 people arrested by ICE yesterday. This has to stop #NeverAgainIsNow #AbolishICE
Northwest detention center in Tacoma medically tortures undocumented people. Denying pain medication, medical care. Conditions are terrible.
ICE can’t hide from us. Northwest Detention Center changed their name to Tacoma ICE Processing Center. Too much bad press.
Martin Selig owner of ICE building gave Federal agents the right to enter the office & charge them w federal crime. The office had been cleared early except for 1 individual in anticipation of our action. They held office for 45 mins & chose to leave on their own #JewsAgainstICE
Filipino activist talks of root problems: US imperialism and policies. 6000 Filipinos leave their country every day in search of a better life.
Sign at #JewsAgainstICE action in Seattle:

Jewish identity is being weaponized against Congress people of color, weaponized in defense of oppressive of Palestinians. We will not stand for xenophobia, white nationalism, antisemitism. Enough. Jews standing in solidarity #NeverAgainIsNow
