Immigrants March Ann Arbor March 25 / Divided Americans continue to loathe one another.
This country hasn't been this polarized since the Vietnam War era and it doesn't appear that this will change anytime soon. In fact, maybe citizens of our nation are even more divided, angry and apparently disgusted with each other than we were during the Johnson and Nixon era. I was a kid during the Vietnam War era but I remember it well. Today, in regard to policies under the Trump administration, Americans on both sides of the fence continue to loathe one another. The right hates the left, and the left hates the right. How or if our nation makes it's way through this current state of affairs remains to be seen.
That being said, there will be an Immigrants March on Saturday, March 25 from 1 pm to 4pm. March participants will meet at the Federal building in downtown Ann Arbor at 1 pm. I suggest that marchers and those who may wish to voice their annoyance with marchers wear their rain slickers and galoshes.
According to march organizer Erick Sanchez, "As attacks on immigrants continue to come under the Trump administration it's important that we unite together and show the president that we will not be intimidated and we demand respect and fairness."
The march will begin at the Federal Building in downtown Ann Arbor and will wind it's way to the Diag. Organizers say they want to show the world that they won't be intimidated by attacks on immigrants.
March organizers have many demands. Here are a few: Equality for all..undocumented, documented citizens, ICE out of communities, stop tearing families apart, and the defeat of House Bill 4105 Sanctuary Policy Prohibition Act. This according to organizers.
To my friends on both sides of the fence, please bring your rain slickers and galoshes as it looks like it will be a rainy day. Peace.
