WE THE PEOPLE are announcing to the good people of Texas, the United States of America, and the whole world, that we will not stand for the imprisonment of innocent children, women and men.
WE THE PEOPLE are announcing to everyone that this is a showdown between American Democracy and the forces of corporate and ideological fascism. We are a group of concerned human beings from all walks of life and the ideological spectrum, fully determined to expose the collusion of government and corporate interests, resulting in a criminal conspiracy betraying our nation and humanity.
We declare the Hutto concentration camp in Taylor, Texas, a shame to this country and to the good name of us all.
This concentration camp houses about 400 human beings from some 30 different countries. Overv half of them are children, and many are asylum seekers. The conditions in which these human beings are being warehoused are nothing short of criminal, with children and adults subjected to the type of dehumanizing and abusive conditions seen in the worst jails and prison camps. The owners of the Hutto prison camp, CCA is receiving tax payers hard earned money to incarcerate the innocent, creating a criminal alliance between private and public power brokers. This corruption endangers us all, for democracy and human rights are at stake.
