Today, at the Newseum in Washington, DC, CNN will be screening part of their series “Latinos in America”. As a reminder to the news network that they cannot court the Latino population while simultaneously broadcasting hate and xenophobia on the Lou Dobbs Tonight program, folks will be gathering to protest. I will be there and hope you can make it too if you’re in the area. Below is the information:
Thursday, October, 8
555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W. Washington
The defamation attacks promoted by Lou Dobbs have caused an increase of hate crimes against Latinos and Native peoples across the U.S. Dobbs uses his CNN program to spread lies, stereotypes, false data, racism and xenophobia againts immigrants especially the Indigenous and Black peoples coming from Mexico, Caribbean, Central and South America.
This hateful campaign is fueling attacks, abuse and violence against our communities in a daily basis. For instance, CASA de Maryland received threats of violence including the bombing of their building and the assassinations of their members. Please join this protest and spread the word!
