Concerts Highlighting Urgency for Deportation Relief Continue Outside LA Detention Center with a Son Jarocho Performance
Los Angeles, CA – After a successful opening concert with Chilean MC Ana Tijoux, the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) will continue the Chant Down the Walls Concert series for migrants in detention by hosting Son del Centro for an evening of Son Jarocho outside the walls of the Metropolitan Detention Center in LA.
The concert, held Mondays at 5:00 PM on the corner of Aliso and Alameda bring attention to the many LA residents held in detention as the President prolongs delay of relief and reform.
“We want the people inside to know they’re not forgotten,” says Claudia Bautista, organizer of the ICE Out of LA Campaign for the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. “ICE tries to disappear our families and hide our loved ones in plain sight. We’re here to say that these walls cannot divide us and we will keep fighting until ICE stops seeing us as quota fillers and until the President grants us relief.”
What: Part two of Chant Down the Walls Concert Series
When: Monday October 20, at 5:00 PM
Where: Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center (180 N Los Angeles St Los Angeles, California 90012)
