Thousands gathered in Boise, Idaho last Saturday to voice their support for DACA and protest Trump's plans to end the program. “There are so many injustices currently happening and DACA is not one of them,” Cristina, in attendance at the Boise rally, told Toward Freedom. “DACA students and DACA recipients are not criminals. They are students going to college, trying to be someone in life.”
At a time when activists around the US are confronting Nazis, white supremacists, and fascists in the streets and in power, Idahoan protesters took a stand against racism in their predominantly Republican state. On Saturday, August 28, dozens of people gathered in Boise to voice their opposition to a political fundraising event hosting notorious white supremacist and sociologist Charles Murray. “His research and his so-called science is used to justify neo-Nazism and white nationalist movements,” one protester explained.
As we all struggle to adjust to the reality of life in Trump's America, we at Toward Freedom renew our commitment to exposing global injustice, discrimination, and corporate greed. We will continue to bring you reports on indigenous and popular movements and on successful grassroots efforts to fight for economic justice, democratic reform and human dignity, as TF has done since 1952.
Hundreds of Idahoans stood together on the steps of the capitol building in Boise to mourn the death of over 50 people gunned down in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. They came together to express love, show solidarity, and to stand together in the face of the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
