Below are selected highlights from the BAMN channel playlist featuring videos of BAMN’s contingent for FULL CITIZENSHIP RIGHTS FOR ALL at the April 10, 2013 Immigrant Rights March on Washington!
#1. BAMN Chair Shanta Driver: “Many of the leaders [who say they are for immigrant rights] are more scared of the movement and the people that would come out and march today than they are of living in a society that has growing inequality and rising racism… BAMN is different from all those other groups.”
#2. BAMN Chair Shanta Driver introduces and reads the demands of the BAMN contingent: Full citizenship rights now–not probation! Open the borders. No fines, no deportations. DREAM Act now!
“The marches that are taking place today in other places are calling for immigration reform, but they do not have a single demand expressing what that reform should be. The other people who are marching are saying we are going to leave it up to the politicians to decide what the reform should be… [BAMN] thinks we cannot leave it up to the politicians — what we fight for are the demands of the movement.”
