21x21 Paseo Ciclistico de Resistencia

Unión del Barrio, a community based political organization, that for over 30 years has organized Raza workers to struggle for our self-determination and liberation from US imposed borders, is organizing a bike ride “21 millas por 21 años de Resistencia.” The purpose of the bike ride is to denounce the escalating war on our people, and to reject all laws and policies that for the past 21 years- since the implementation of NAFTA and Operation Gatekeeper- have militarized our barrios, systematically killed thousands of migrants at the border, has separated millions of families, and has incarcerated tens of thousands of workers in concentration camps called prisons. All of this, while making billions of dollars for large corporations. Since the implementation of both the economic and border policies in 1994, Unión del Barrio has been consistent in our resistance to this assault against Raza workers and our families on both sides of the imposed border. Twenty-one years later, after more than eight thousand deaths, and millions of deportations and separated families, the border community of San Diego will come together on Saturday December 5, 2015 to build class and political consciousness for our self-defense, to organize our people into struggle and to build an economic basis for our work, we invite our supporters to ride with us on December 5, 2015, this will be a fundraising event to sustain our community organizing and work.
