Okay I've got to go to another meeting at in downtown SF this morning to find out more about what we can do to help the situation. (It's at Van Der Hout & Brigagliano, 180 Sutter St., 5th floor, at Kearny and Sutter, Downtown San Francisco - from 10:00-11:30 am, if you're interested in showing up.)
But here are some photos and footage of yesterday's small (200 people) but effective demonstration in front of the San Francisco INS office.
Both of these movies are of Farhan Memon, Legal Aide for the Bay Area Association of Muslim Lawyers, describing the terrible conditions in which these detainees are being treated by the security company contracted out by the INS. (Yep, that's right, these people aren't even in governement custody. Oh yeah, there will be more on this later!)
