We are deeply saddened that our friend Ravi Ragbir, fearless and beloved leader of New Sanctuary Coalition of New York City, has been scheduled to be deported on Saturday, February 10th. An emergency rally to show solidarity with Ravi and all immigrants has been scheduled SATURDAY @ 9am in Foley Square.
From New Sanctuary Coalition:
“This moment is urgent. This is bigger than any one case. ICE is escalating its attack on immigrants, and only our movement can stop them.
Bring your friends, your colleagues, your love and solidarity to demand a #NEWSANCTUARYCITY and show ICE that they cannot deport this movement.
Things are changing minute by minute. Ravi has a hearing on February 9th that could delay his deportation – but this rally against ICE will happen no matter what.
