RE:  Hamtramck rally this Friday, March 22nd, in remembrance of the fallen in the Christchurch massacre

Stand against Islamophobia and hatred

Below is an announcement from the Coalition to Oppose the Expansion of (the hazardous waste plant misleading called) US Ecology in support of a demonstration called by community activists:

Join us for a rally in Hamtramck to stand in remembrance of our fallen brothers and sisters in New Zealand and also standing against media bias which is fueling Islamophobia

Place: Zussman park, Hamtramck City Hall, Michigan

Friday, March 22, 2019 at 2 PM

Organized by Hamtramck/Detroit Communities

We have been fighting the expansion of US Ecology for 3 1/2 years. A few months ago the coalition was joined by Muslim activists (mainly from the Yemeni and Bangladeshi communities) who were also fighting the expansion of this hazardous waste plant. They had collected thousands of signatures on a petition they sent to the governor. The joining of forces has invigorated the struggle and enable us to pressure the Michigan Department of Environment Quality to hold another public meeting March 28th. Standing together, against the hatred aimed to divide us, strengthens our struggle against the pollution of our communities and our water. And reaffirms the need for human dignity for all.<>
