FIRE is going to the border – Help us get there! #FIREICE

Support FIRE Mobilization to
the Texas-Mexico Border Now!

Donate now to FIRE, a newly formed multinational, multigender grassroots movement comprised of migrant rights advocates, students, teachers, unionists, socialists, Black Lives Matter, anti-imperialist and other activists.

At this moment of crisis for millions of migrants around the world – adults and children forced to flee their homes because of poverty, violence, and wars imposed by U.S. and European expansion and intervention – it’s time to light the flames of a united fight back.

We are launching a new, national organization to amplify the struggles of im/migrants and refugees everywhere. We believe in supporting the leadership of these movements by connecting all of the issues facing workers here, whether it is police terrorism against communities of color, mass incarceration, sexism, ableism, or exploitation, we want to support a broad movement to take direct action against the horrific crimes of ICE and the Border Patrol.

Eyewitness Delegation to the U.S. – Mexico Border

FIRE is mobilizing activists, primarily young, LGBTQ, people of color, and working class organizers to travel to the U.S. border to support and learn more about struggles to defend our class against ICE and Border Patrol terrorism.

We will be traveling to Brownsville, Texas from June 27 – to July 2 to support actions and take part in an eyewitness tour against U.S. concentration camps for migrant youth and families. We need your support to bring a group of activists to learn about the conditions on the frontlines of this movement. The delegation will publish reports and findings from the border, as well as participating in demonstrations led by these communities against the ongoing separation of families in these cruel concentration camp style detention centers.

Once we return from Texas, we will be speaking out, organizing, and shutting down ICE across the country in support of this growing resistance movement. We need your support to make this important work happen!
