Enemy of the people

An indicted journalist reflects on conspiracy in today's America
When Aaron Cantú arrived at his new job at the Santa Fe Reporter in New Mexico last year, he came with the baggage of a recent arrest. Two months earlier, he spent a night in jail with hundreds of others detained during protests on Inauguration Day in Washington, DC.

Families Belong Together rally set for Saturday

Saturday is the Families Belong Together day of action against the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy, and there will be a protest at Washington Square Park. The Rochester rally begins at 3 p.m., and speakers will talk about Trump's recent executive order to stop the separation of migrant families detained by immigration officials, local organizations that work on behalf of undocumented immigrants, and what work is needed to advance immigrants' rights.

Rallies for immigrant families and refugees take place this week

A march protesting the Trump administration's separation of immigrant families will take place at 6 p.m. Friday, and events around UN World Refugee Day will take place Saturday.
