And support ongoing immigrant rights organizing in Minnesota
On August 11 in Minneapolis, five people put their bodies on the line to fight Arizona’s racist, anti-immigrant law SB1070. Now they need your support. The arrests generated national headlines (http://bit.ly/miracmedia11aug) but have left the five with court fines. Please visit http://bit.ly/miracdonate to make a donation to their legal fees and to ongoing immigrant rights organizing in Minnesota.
Wayzata--(press release from Rainforest Action Network)--In the wake of a damning report linking Cargill to the destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests, activists with Rainforest Action Network occupied the suburban Minneapolis executive offices of the nation’s largest private agribusiness company today. Playing a loud recording of chainsaws cutting down rainforests and holding signs reading “This is the sound of your supply chain,” and “Mr. Page: Rainforest Destruction Stops with You,” five activists locked themselves to the staircase of the Lake Office, blocking the entrance to the company’s executive offices for over two hours. All five activists were arrested.

Nine people were cited and released outside Senator Amy Klobuchar's office in a civil disobedience action late Tuesday afternoon and early evening. Klobuchar, a Democrat, has refused to speak out against a war funding bill even in the face of the recently released military video documenting the massacre of civilians, children and journalists in Iraq.
The large rally and civil disobedience comes after six were arrested at Al Franken's St. Paul office last Thursday. See video from Klobuchar's office below
