When we say NEVER AGAIN, we mean it. And when we chant QUIT YOUR JOB, we'll actually help you do it.

Today we're showing up at the Atlanta ICE field office to encourage employees inside to quit their jobs. And we're launching a website to help them do it.
ICE employees are complicit in the atrocities happening in our inhumane immigration system. Why are we committing to help people complicit in this system find new and better jobs? A few reasons. #NeverAgainIsNow
First, there are conscientious objectors stuck inside ICE. They don't want to be there, but it's not always easy to quit your job. You have bills to pay; you have relatives who rely on your health insurance. So we're helping them defect. #NeverAgainIsNow

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!

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:…

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

Must watch video💥💥💥💥

This is what protesters are currently being subjected to in Red Deer, Alberta. This is prior to the announcement of the snitch hotline and Kenney’s admiration of Russia jailing of Greenpeace activists he finds so instructional.
The province has been inundated with anti-protest propaganda for over a year.

This is the result.

The protester could have been killed by this action. The driver fine, less than $1000.

This is the political environment Kenney introduced a snitch hotline.
Expect violence in Alberta to increase.

Expect division between left and right ideology to exponentially widen.

Expect increased vigilante justice doled out by Kenney’s “Alberta Proud” crowd, emboldened by his embrace of fascist rhetoric.

Remember the vote-flipping voting machines in the Mississippi GOP gubernatorial primary? THIS is the guy that benefited and allegedly “won”. He’s the current Lt. Governor. ⬇️ 1/
2/ More from the alleged winner of the Mississippi gubernatorial primary.

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!

Trump started his DNA extraction “(eugenics) pilot program”in May.

Now they want to extract DNA from ALL immigrants seeking asylum.

It’s to dehumanize & treat ALL migrants as criminals.

This has strong echoes of Auschwitz Dr. —Josef Mengele.

It’s another descent into fascism.
Barr/DOJ proposal includes adding all immigrant’s DNA results into a nationwide database.

Trump’s regime has nefariously:
🔹Kept menstruation records on females
🔹Separated, adopted out & LOST children

They’re deporting sick children here on medical Visa
Don’t know who Josef Mengele the “Angel of Death”was?

Holocaust survivor Eva Kor, was a victim of Josef Mengele’s medical experiments in Auschwitz. She recently passed away on Jul 7th.

Cali public employees! Ur voices r making a difference!!

Thanks 2 the @Edu4MigrJustice campaign & passionate CalPERS members, we’re starting 2 see some movement 2 end the largest US pension’s complicity in the migrant abuse crisis!

Responding 2 public comments from @Edu4MigrJustice & dozens of CalPERS members, CalPERS board member, Rob Feckner, stated that the Board takes concerns abt CalPERS’ investments in #MigrantAbuseCos as srsly as their stakeholders & that the Board is addressing their concerns. #E4MJ
Feckner alludes 2 internal movement & says stakeholders “will see action @ some pt n time”

But that’s not good enough; the atrocities r happening NOW & conditions r growing more dire by the day

@Edu4MigrJustice & CalPERS members r demanding immediate action b/c #NeverAgainIsNow

Today, 17 Av, this year August 18h, marks the 80th anniversary of the Hebron massacre. With cries of “Slaughter the Jews” and “Allahu Akbar,” the mob broke into homes, tortured, raped and murdered men, women and children.
Benzion Gershon, a pharmacist @ Hadassah hospital, known throughout the region for helping Jews and Arabs alike, was tortured and murdered after being forced to watch the mobs rape and butcher his daughter. 67 Jewish men, women and children were killed. @billmaher history class
The survivors escaped to Jerusalem, and for the first time in hundreds of years, Hebron was empty of Jewish life. In 1968, after Israel’s victory in the 6 day war, Jews were allowed to return to Hebron. @billmaher history class

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😰

CW: car attack against protestors (yesterday)

A thread of some of my thoughts.
I woke up to news that an ICE guard drove a truck into a team of #NeverAgain protestors in Rhode Island.

No one was killed.

Several were injured.

Then police released tear gas on the Never Again protestors.
1. In the fight against fascism, we do not always get to choose our "risk level." I remember the first day in Cville when someone tried to arrest me for something. I had not chosen to "risk arrest" that day. Sometimes they arrest you because they want to, not because you want to.

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."

My daughter (6) is drawing kids in cages on a posterboard for tonight's #NeverAgainIsNow march in Rhode Island, and I'm this weird mix of proud and horrified.

She told me a few months ago that she wanted to get better at drawing so she could make better protest posters.
What a country.
Here is her poster, made with minimal direction from me (she occasionally asked for spelling help). After she finished it, she briefly practiced raising it and marching around the house.

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.

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.
