Support Holly
11 Jun 2019

The action was organized in solidarity with ICE detainees who were on hunger strike at the facility demanding better conditions. Three other people who were arrested as part of the action are facing trial in July.

Holly issued this statement before beginning their sentence:

“We can only hope to change the world by staring injustice in the face and forcing ourselves out of our comfort zones. As walls are built and people are caged it is our obligation to stand in solidarity with the most impacted people to that they know we see them and that their voices are heard.

I believe that if more people put their bodies where their hearts are we could show these powerful state institutions that they can not cage, torture, and separate people without consequences. We will not be silent, far too much is at stake.”
