What: March to Stop the Systematic Persecution of Migrants and Latinos in AZ.

Where: March Start Location for Feb 28th: 300 E Indian School Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85012

When: March to Stop the Hate in Phoenix to be held 9:00 am on February 28.

In the last month Sheriff Joe Arpaio intensified his on-going escalation of attacks against Latinos by segregating the county jail and parading undocumented migrants shackled in a chain-gang into “tent city.” He erected and surrounded the tent with an electric fence in a grotesque display of human degradation.

Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine responded to the news by saying, “To witness what is happening in Arizona and remain neutral is to be implicated in human rights violations that are occurring right here on US soil against migrants. History will not be kind to Joe Arpaio.   He will be remembered with other infamous sheriffs like Bull Connor who subjugated and terrorized communities for shortsighted political gain.  I hope everyone will join me in protesting Sheriff Joe.”

To take action NOW sign the petition asking for the Department of Justice to investigate Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    Much has been said, we are all alike except from our color …..

  3. Why would we listen to this fool about hate? This ingnoramus hates whites, America, western ideals, democracy, capitalism… everything that has brought freedom to a world filled with tyranny. He wants firing squads, the likes of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, to reign supreme in this world. Not on our watch, Zach!! This world doesn’t need your subjective morality…

  4. zack…you have empowerd me in such a way. im a 17 year old living in washington state, im homeless, my parents kicked me out.. And i grew up much my life as a rebel. Not until i listened to your music had i ever fallen so deeply in love with the message you put out. I know they say “the young are influenced by popularity”. but im influenced by the rage and anger and everything you put into your music. I sit and i will shake as im listening to your music because it all is going through my mind. I read some post on wikepedia that you disbanded after the album “Battle of los angele’s” because you felt like your music wasnt making an impact on a movement. it makes me want to scream at all the kids and people around me to listen to your music. to stop living as prones in society and see the truth and not be blindfolded. i dont know if you will ever read this. im sure you never will. But your music and lyrics have helped me through hell and back. I have never felt such a force or purity and meaning in songs. There is not one rage against the machine song i wont listen to and bob my head to. you are a gift to the world Zack De La Rocha…
