Take Action Against Targeted Businesses -Hitting Where It Counts
I do not live in these border towns where they are experiencing immigrants smuggling drugs, weapons, and committing crimes. I and I do not have the answers to solve this obvious problem. However, when you give police the authority to stop, and/or arrest citizens based on a "hunch", then we are on our way down a very very slippery road. If that occurs, then why not muslims? Brazillians?
This is not what America stands for, and if we allow this to go on any further, it will be the complete end of America as we know it.
Could this be what the Mayans were talking about? The end of the world as we know it! Complete Control. Complete Slavery.
Governor Brewer signed Senate Bill 1070, April 23, 2010
Arizona needs to attract visitors, conventions and new businesses to grow our economy; unfortunately, the approved law, Senate Bill 1070, considered the toughest state immigration measure in the United States because it now makes being in Arizona illegally a state crime, will lead to acts of civil disobedience and adverse economic consequences for Arizona's economy.
Arizona for the past forty years has realized an influx of whites from the mid-west moving to Arizona with conservative values into enclaves called Sun City, Sun City West, Sun City Grand, Sun Lakes, etc. duplicating the South in the days of Jim Crow.
Now with the passage of SB 1070, Arizona fully embraces a period of Jim Crow actions.
During the time of Jim Crow in the South, the majority of the white, voting population rabidly supported segregation. Only the intervention of the federal government, economic boycotts against businesses that discriminated, and a prolonged Civil Rights Movement finally prevailed over the great mass of whites who wanted the color line to remain intact.
The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws in the United States enacted between 1876 and 1965. They mandated de jure racial segregation in all public facilities, with a supposedly "separate but equal" status for black Americans. In reality, this led to treatment and accommodations that were usually inferior to those provided for white Americans, systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages.
Nearly identical to Jim Crow was apartheid used in South Africa.
The crime of apartheid is defined by the 2002 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court as inhumane acts of a character similar to other crimes against humanity "committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime."
Hispanic News believes Arizona has become the new apartheid for America brought about by overt hatred of Hispanics.
The only immediate defense available to Arizona Hispanics of this overt hatred is to put into practice an economic sanction, rather than Burn, Baby, Burn! used in the Watts Riots of 1965 lasting 6 days in Los Angeles.
The Hispanic News letter to Gov. Brewer, dated April 19, 2010, stated if SB 1070 is approved, Hispanic News would proceed to implement a national boycott of Arizona.
Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) providing sage advise said, “Our economic sanction is: Do not do business with a state that is propagating the idea separate but equal treatment under the law can be codified.”
Grijalva, who represents a southern Arizona district (Tucson) called Senate Bill 1070 "racist."
Grijalva added, “The governor and legislature are blind to what this bill will really do to citizens, law enforcement and the state economy. Tourists will not come to a state with discriminatory policies on the books. Businesses will not move here. Hispanic workers and taxpayers will leave. If state lawmakers don’t realize or don’t care how detrimental this will be, we need to make them somehow understand."
"Conventions are a large source of visitors and revenue, and targeting them is the most effective way to make this point before it’s too late. Just as professional athletes refused to recognize Arizona until it recognized Martin Luther King Jr., we are calling on convention planners, organizations and companies not to schedule conventions and conferences in Arizona until it recognizes civil rights and the meaning of due process. We don’t want to sustain this effort any longer than necessary. It’s about sending a message.”Tuesday on MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann, in a segment amusingly entitled "State Out of Mind," Olbermann interviewed Rep. Grijalva, who laid out a plan for a tentative boycott.
"We're asking organizations," he told Olbermann, "civic, religious, labor, Latino, organizations of color to refrain from using Arizona as a convention site, to refrain from spending their dollars in the state of Arizona until Arizona turns the clock forward instead of backwards and joins the rest of the union. Indeed, Arizona needs to be quarantined from the rest of the nation, isolated and sanctioned until there's a regime change, much like South Africa under apartheid was in the 1980s."
Arizona SB 1070, which will become Arizona law 90 days after the state legislature's present session comes to an end, will bring havoc on Arizona directly turning Arizona into a Gestapo state violating the civil rights of Arizona Hispanics by significantly increasing police profiling of everyone with a brown face.
A new movement now begins to spread the message across America of anyone who visits or considers Arizona to expand or start a new business, condones Arizona becoming a police state.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio under the auspices of the new Police State will expand his immigration sweeps and knock in the dark of night and state to Hispanic households “identification papers.” It will not be a request, but a command from the Nazi Gestapo.
Arizona's economy is also directly impacted by tourism and convention attendance.
The purpose of this letter is to officially notify all concerned, with Arizona now moving forward with SB 1070, Hispanic News on Monday will send out its first letter regarding "Boycott Arizona."
Our first action will be to contact Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele to strongly oppose bringing the 2012 national Republican convention to Phoenix. If the GOP national convention comes to Arizona, it will send a message the GOP condones Arizona becoming a hate state toward Hispanics.
We will not single out Republicans but any Democrat or Republican event in Arizona will not be welcomed. In addition, we will directly contact every business considering locating to Arizona to make them aware Arizona has become a police state.
Not only tourism/conventions and businesses but also sport owners/teams will be strongly asked not to come to Arizona.
In addition, we will strongly recommend tourism and conventions programs funded by Arizona cities be brought to a halt.
On Monday, a letter will be sent to the Phoenix city manager notifying him Boycott Arizona will target all conventions using the Phoenix Convention Center.
Our strong recommendation to the city manager is he now has a responsibility to notify all convention planners considering Phoenix to be apprised of possible protests and a picket line at the Phoenix Convention Center. In addition, Boycott Arizona will also proceed to boycott the service or product nationally sold by the company.
All convention planners should be notified of caveat emptor for it would be prudent and advisable to warn all conventions coming to the Phoenix convention center their service or product will be boycotted by Boycott Arizona. We strongly recommend full disclosure to all considering usage of the Phoenix Convention Center.
Next week, a letter will be sent to the City of Phoenix requesting the dollar amount funded to the Phoenix Visitors Convention Bureau this year and requesting these funds be immediately frozen and used for other programs and services.
The Grand Canyon is our number 1 Arizona tourist destination. This summer, we will take Boycott Arizona to the entrance of the Grand Canyon.
This will be where we host our first national rally inviting Hispanic groups from all over the USA to come to Arizona to advance Boycott Arizona and promote Immigration Reform in Washington. Boycott Arizona will make the national evening news programs and become highly visible everywhere in the USA adding to its success to close down Arizona.
To spread the message Arizona becoming a police state, a network of supporters across America will work with us to spread the message of Boycott Arizona.
In addition, an advertising blitz sponsored by Hispanic News will be part of a national campaign to apprise all tourism agencies and travel agents to make their clients aware Arizona is now a Police State.
Efforts to have national and/or regional companies Boycott Arizona will result by notifying large national commercial real estate brokers and public and private economic development agencies in the USA by email blasts. Economic development agencies charged with bringing new companies to their cities and states are highly competitive. They will all use Arizona's Police State as a tool to locate companies to their jurisdictions in lieu of selecting Arizona.
For a company or any part of a company operation proceeding to locate in Arizona, we shall boycott their products and/or services not only in Arizona but we will utilize our network of supporters across America to boycott their products and/or services across America.
For companies already in Arizona, we shall request their endorsement of Boycott Arizona and add their names to a list to be published here. For companies already in Arizona who fail to endorse Boycott Arizona, their products and/or services will be added to the boycott list.
In addition, Hispanic News will recruit public officials to support Boycott Arizona.
Boycott Arizona will also use the COPS model used in San Antonio, Texas in 1974, to effectively close down economic development growth in Arizona as San Antonio's Communities Organized Public Service (COPS) brought growth to a halt in San Antonio.
In tandem with other pro-Immigration Reform groups, we will make crystal clear without federal Comprehensive Immigration Reform in 2010, we will sit out the 2010 and 2012 elections unless Immigration Reform becomes the law of the land prior to the next presidential election.
The use of Tweeter to spread the message of hate showered on Arizona Hispanics will spread across the USA as a fire spreading across the prairie. Nothing will be able to stop it.
Arizona is our home state. SB 1070 will have the same racist action as the Germans requiring Jews to wear a Star of David on their upper left chest to identify them as Jews. Will SB 1070 require Hispanics wear brown armbands? As Germans arrested Jews prior to and during WW II and then sent Jews to concentration camps for extermination, Sheriff Joe Arpaio will expand his immigration sweeps and knock in the dark of night and state to Hispanic households “identification papers.”
It will not be a request, but a command from the SB 1070 Nazi Gestapo.
"Those Who Forget History Are Doomed to Repeat It."
Hispanic News will continue Boycott Arizona until SB 1070 is rescinded.
With all this said, let us remember that the government is not concerned with illegal immigration, otherwise, the government would have acted on it. However, politically, it is very significant.
The reasons being that it gives a springboard for the republican party to use as a platform to further their agenda. It causes separation within the political ring. An overall - it's main purpose - to cause more separation and division within the United States...oh, did I just say that?
We are no longer the United States folks, clearly we are a Divided States of America.
The government has completely separated us through ignorance, and fear.
