Repeal Arizona's Racist Laws 1070 & 2281!

Boycott 2011 MLB All-Star Game in Arizona!

From AZ to MA: Stop all attacks on the
undocumented! Full rights now!

Lansdowne St. at Fenway Park

Arizona Diamondbacks
vs.
Boston Red Sox


What are laws 1070 & 2881?
On 4/22/10, Arizona brought Jim Crow-style racism back to the U.S - amongst other things, laws 1070 & 2281:
● Gives police the power to detain anyone they have a “reasonable suspicion” of being undocumented.
● Legalizes racial profiling and makes it illegal to not carry proper documentation of citizenship status
● Bans all ethnic studies classes and programs at all public schools in Arizona
Why are we protesting the Arizona Diamondbacks?
● In response to the racist laws, there is a nationwide campaign, supported the AFL-CIO, the Boston City Council
and many more, to boycott all companies in Arizona until the laws are repealed.
● The Diamondbacks franchise is a major funder of the Republican Party, the main force behind these laws:
● In 2010, the Diamondbacks gave $121,6000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the 3rd highest
contributor. They also gave $129,500 to the Republican Party Committee
● The owners, Ken Kendrick and his family, have made $1,023, 527 in contributions to the Republicans.
It can happen and is already happening here in Massachusetts!
● All around the country, other states are considering bills just like 1070.
● Right here in Massachusetts, the State Senate passed a series of anti-immigrant amendments
to the state budget.
We all must come together, undocumented and not, to defeat these attacks. Millions of families are struggling with mass
unemployment and budget cuts and we cannot allow ourselves to be divided by these racist laws!
Join us at an informational picket & protest – let's spread a message of solidarity & make our voices be heard!
No more Arizona's! To get involved & for more info, please call (857) 334-5084 or email plowber (at) hotmail.com
