In a major day of action on June 30, thousands of people came out at over 700 protest actions in cities all over the U.S. to express their outrage at the Trump administration’s racist immigration policies. The slogan of the day was “Families Belong Together” which harnessed the outrage of millions at the sight of children being dragged from their parents and placed in cages. In many places parents came with their children to show solidarity with immigrant families.
Some protests were very large with 10,000 or more in attendance. Others were more modest in scope. What all had in common was outrage at racist immigration policies. It appears that the call to action motivated a wider layer that hasn’t been seen in the streets since the earlier days of the Trump administration.
Across the U.S., the Party for Socialism and Liberation was there with the people.
