BREAKING: #JewsAgainstICE, immigrants, and their allies are disrupting the Amazon Job Fair in Boston, MA.

We are asking job-seekers to avoid applying for positions at Amazon and its subsidiaries until the org breaks its contracts with ICE and DHS. #NeverAgainIsNow #NoTech4ICE
IBM built systems that enabled the Nazis to track, detain, deport and ultimately murder millions of people. We wish people had taken action to shut down IBM to prevent the Holocaust and so we are doing today what we wish people had done for the Jews in the 1930s. #NeverAgainIsNow
IBM sold tech to Nazis.
Amazon sells tech to ICE.
Never Again means #NoTech4ICE.
Never Again means no business with Amazon.
Never Again means don't build for ICE!
Which side are you on?

UPDATE: Wyatt scheduled their meeting for 6pm last Friday, and, singing Shabbat prayers, we cancelled their meeting.

The board is meeting tonight and we are back, once again, to pray with our feet.


As the meeting begins, we are asking: which side are you on?

We are urging board members to vote no or resign their positions. Never Again is Now.

UPDATE: As protestors ripped black cloth in mourning for those held in facilities like this across the country, the Wyatt board decided that they will not be voting.

WATCH: Organizers are conducting a press conference, beginning immediately:…

#JewsAgainstICE and allies with @CloseTheCampsBA are marching on @PalantirTech to say no to providing ICE tech to terrorize families. Watch live now:
@CloseTheCampsBA @PalantirTech "No human being will ever be illegal."

@CloseTheCampsBA @PalantirTech This morning @NeverAgainActn @JFREJNYC @ConMijente shut down @PalantirHQ NYC to demand they stop collaborating with ICE. Now we are at @PalantirTech in the Bay because we have seen this before. How many of our people would have lived if IBM hadn't helped the Nazis? #NoTechForICE

Update: Wyatt cancelled their meeting and rescheduled it for 6pm tonight. If you're thinking "isn't sundown on Friday when Jews begin observing the Sabbath, and thus not a good time for a public meeting?", you're right. But we'll be there anyway, praying with our feet ✡️🔥✡️
And we won't be there alone! We're following in the footsteps of local immigrant rights groups like @amornetwork, who've been fighting to #ShutDownWyatt since before #JewsAgainstICE was a hashtag. That's why we're splitting all donations with AMOR!…
@amornetwork RIGHT NOW: Hundreds of us are inside the Wyatt Board Meeting, where we’re fighting their plan to privatize the detention center and extend their contract with ICE! #NeverAgainIsNow

BOSTON: We’re gathering at the New England Holocaust Memorial, getting ready to march against the businesses in our community making money helping ICE persecute immigrants.

This is a crisis, and we have to act like it #NeverAgainIsNow

We were raised with the stories of our ancestors and our people. We don’t make comparisons to the Holocaust lightly.

What we see happening to immigrants of color in the U.S. looks like the early stages of what happened to us and others in Nazi Germany.

ICE and CBP can’t do their evil work alone. They rely on the greed of corporations who see our immigrant neighbors living in fear & living in cages, and see dollar signs instead of human beings.

It’s up to us to make it stop: #NoBusinessWithICE!

Fox's @LouDobbs saying the ICE guard who ran peaceful #JewsAgainstICE activists over with his truck, was the person who was assaulted BY THE ACTIVISTS.

Remember it was CNN who launched Lou Dobbs as a white supremacist talking head.

CNN which ignores @jaketapper's hate today.
@LouDobbs @jaketapper What @LouDobbs did here too was cut the video in a way that doesn't show that the protestors were already there, as if they came in front of the truck.

And cut out the part when the truck, which after the first hit, stepped on the gas for a second hit.
@LouDobbs @jaketapper As @NeverAgainActn activists, many of which were sent to the hospital, were recovering from being run over, additional prison guards came to pepper spray them.

Police followed by refusing to take reports from protestors.

It wasn't just any group of protesters, either. It was #JewsAgainstICE, just a couple days after anniversary of Heather Heyer's murder much the same way in #Charlottesville by a neo-Nazi #UniteTheRight attendee.

Police then pepper sprayed them…
"An employee reached by phone at the Wyatt Detention Facility declined to comment early on Thursday. Messages left for the Central Falls Police Department and ICE weren’t immediately returned."

Yeah, I fucking bet they weren't
You can't support driving through Jewish protesters and in the same breath claim you are pro-Jewish because you support Israel fyi

CONFIRMED: The man who drove his car over a crowd of #JewsAgainstICE and allies is Thomas Woodworth, a Captain at a for-profit ICE facility.

The safety of every person behind bars at the Wyatt Detention Center is in the hands of people like this. Our neighbors need to be freed!
This is our 36th action in the last 6 weeks, and over 300 of us have been arrested sounding the alarm: #NeverAgainIsNow

We’ve been partnering with groups like @AMORnetwork and @CosechaMovement.

Please consider donating to support all of our work:…
@amornetwork @CosechaMovement Thank you to everyone supporting & praying for the health of the protestors. 4 of the 5 people hospitalized have been released. Sadly Captain Woodworth did fracture one person’s leg with his truck, and that person’s being examined for possible broken back & internal injuries😰

ICE guard rams #JewsAgainstICE and Latinx activists with truck.

Days after anniversary of Heather Heyer's murder using the same tactic by white supremacist in Charlottesville.

Follow @NeverAgainActn for news from Wyatt detention center in Rhode Island. #NeverAgainIsNow
Reach Mayor @JamesDiossa to ask what will be done with police who refused to take reports and stood by as ICE continued to attack these peaceful protestors with pepper spray after having run them over with the truck.
Reach @GovRaimondo and demand an investigation of ICE's lawless actions attempting to kill protestors and how local police stood by and obstructed justice. #NeverAgainIsNow

This is my video. For a second I thought I was filming the next Heather Heyer moment. It was absolutely shocking and horrifying and I'm a bit shaken up. Fortunately it appears no one was seriously hurt #NeverAgainIsNow #NeverAgainIsNow #JewsAgainstICE
After the truck attack, the prison guard driving it just sat there and apparently called for backup, guards came out in very aggressive posture and started pepper spraying people
Several people ended up going to the hospital. Meanwhile the guards, including the driver of the vehicle, returned to the private prison where they are holding #ICE detainees. The police did nothing other than take witness statements. #NeverAgainIsNow

LIVE: 300+ in Rhode Island are getting read to march on the Wyatt ICE Detention Center, to shut it down for the second time in a month!

“No more roundups, no more shackles, no more families torn apart, no more cages!” - Rabbi Goldwasser

@AMORnetwork is here today in solidarity w/ the Jewish community, showing up to resist the human rights abuses being committed in concentration camps at the border. AMOR believes that migration is a human right that must be upheld and defended!” - Catarina Lorenzo, AMOR Director
@amornetwork Tal reminds the crowd that the first people to be rounded up & caged in the building of the U.S. were indigenous: “ I invite you to take a moment to acknowledge the land and peoples we are occupying, and to invite your ancestors who carried you here to join us in this moment."

BREAKING: #JewsAgainstICE are assembling to shut down their local concentration camp in Houston, Texas.

Never Again is a promise, and it requires action.

#JewsAgainstICE and allies in Houston are blocking the road outside of the Southwest Key facility. We will continue disrupting business as usual until you #CloseTheCamps, #AbolishICE, and stop terrorizing our immigrant neighbors.

PS: This street is called Emancipation Avenue. 🤔
Police are already on the scene in Houston, where #JewsAgainstICE are risking arrest to demand a #DignityPlan for immigration.

We're participating in nonviolent, direct action because we can't accept these atrocities in our communities.

Amazon’s ENTIRE bookstore is currently being occupied by hundreds of #JewsAgainstICE.

We are in solidarity with Amazon workers who have called on the company to cut its ties with ICE.
We are reciting the Jewish Mourner’s Kaddish for all the children who have died in ICE’s concentration camps. #JewsAgainstICE
We are still occupying the Amazon bookstore and in the middle of the Tisha B’Av service. The police have arrived.

A group of Jews, rabbis, and allies are risking arrest. #JewsAgainstICE

Today, on Tisha B’Av, #JewsAgainstICE are taking action to say #NeverAgainIsNOW. Tisha B’Av is a Jewish day of mourning, and today we mourn for the people rounded up, torn from their families, thrown in cages, and deported by ICE.
We are turning our grief into action and taking to the streets to demand that tech companies stop enabling the deportation machine terrorizing immigrant communities, separating families, and putting children in cages.

#JewsAgainstICE #NoTech4ICE #NeverAgainIsNow #ClosetheCamps
We are at @amazon's store because @AWSCloud is vital to ICE’s cruelty.

Without Amazon, ICE cannot round immigrants up to imprison them in concentration camps or deport them. #JewsAgainstICE will not stay silent while tech companies profit off of cruelty.

I want to tell the story of how this song came to be in my hands, and how it came to be shared at the #Seattle @NeverAgainAction today.
About two months, @EgSophie mentioned that she and some of her friends were putting together a #JewsAgainstICE action in New Jersey and asked me if I'd like to come out and help with music.

I said "yes," and jumped on a plane.

This is what happened next:…
@EgSophie Shortly thereafter, I got an email from @imeanwhat. Abe is a filmmaker who is working on a documentary about his Uncle Wolf, a composer and conductor who ran the Vilna Ghetto symphony orchestra.

Wolf died in a concentration camp.

But his music lives on:

BREAKING: Jews and allies are blocking the door of the ICE Facility in Seattle, Washington.

We are putting our bodies on the line to shut down this inhumane system. #CloseTheCamps #NeverAgainIsNow #AbolishICE
Here's the view from outside. We are gathering to protest the treatment of immigrants across the country.

We have seen this pattern of dehumanization, demonization, and targeted terror before.

We know where it leads.

This sign says another world is possible in three language (English, Spanish, and Hebrew).

It's not enough to push back against the intolerable. We are advancing @CosechaMovement's #DignityPlan, a vision for a just and human immigration system.

🚨NOW: #JewsAgainstICE in Los Angeles are shutting down the offices of the GEO Group, a private prison company that runs detention centers for ICE. 🚨
No more anonymity for anyone helping run the detention and deportation machine.

No rest for anyone profiting off of concentration camps.
Just 2 hours from this office building, GEO helps ICE run California’s largest concentration camp for immigrants.

Every day GEO employees go to work, they help Trump’s xenophobic & white supremacist agenda.

That’s why these #JewsAgainstICE are here saying #NeverAgainIsNow

It's NEVER been about "Doing it the right way," or "Legal vs Illegal Immigration."

Trump--MILLER--wants to cut immigration, period. Legal immigrants are just as bad to him. No visa. No green card. Deportation! If your child so much as got reduced lunch.
Here are the emails wherein MILLER got a bit hot under the collar a year ago bc he couldn't force USCIS to create regulations that would change how green cards are approved, in just days. He has no clue how things work.

Cuz Stephen Miller is a putz.…
Miller, as everyone in the administration & beyond knows, just wants to reduce ALL immigration. He's said as much.

But this new Public Charge rule, which they're saying could be published in Final Form any day now, will have the add on effect of potentially killing people, too.

Amazing 360° view of the action happening *RIGHT NOW* in Milwaukee! #JewsAgainstICE, immigrants & allies are risking arrest to shut down not just the front entrance, but the back garage so no deportation vans can get in or out of the building.

You and your friends can shut down ICE too! We’ve put together a whole toolkit on how to organize a Never Again Action, and there are definitely other people where you live who want to help. Go to…

UPDATE: the ICE Building in Milwaukee is officially closed! Direct action works!

This means no raids or deportations today, nobody taken into custody at ICE check-ins, & zero neighbors harmed.

We can do this at every single ICE building in the country!

Right now 100+ #JewsAgainstICE, immigrants and allies (including @RepGwenMoore!) are marching on the ICE Field Office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We’re out on the streets with a simple message: Never Again means #CloseTheCamps & #AbolishICE!

@RepGwenMoore We are working with a large coalition of community groups in Milwaukee, part of a movement of people learning about each other as we build solidarity between people of all ages, races, and backgrounds.
