Immigrants Are the 99%!

Rally Outside the Deportation Hearing of Ahmed Hossain!


Tuesday, November 8

7:30am March From Liberty Park

8:00am Rally at 26 Federal Plaza*

9:00am Teach-In on Immigration

 

Rally organized by the Bangladeshi-American Community Council.

March and Teach-In Organized by Occupy Wall Street.

 

Ahmed Hossain is a father, a husband, a taxi driver, an actor and director, and a community activist. He is scheduled for deportation next Tuesday because of errors on the part of his former lawyer. If Ahmed is deported, he may not have access to necessary heart medication and his wife and two American-born children might lose their home.

 

Ahmed's seven year old son Tanmoy keeps asking the same question: Why is his father being punished for a lawyer's mistake? There is no good answer to Tanmoy's question. A longtime resident with no criminal record, Ahmed Hossain is one of the people that immigration authorities claim to no longer be going after. They need to hear that we will not stand for this.

 

*Federal Plaza is at the corner of Broadway and Worth St. in downtown Manhattan. Take trains to Chambers St. or City Hall.


BEFORE TUESDAY:

Call ICE to demand a halt to Ahmed's deportation.
