Activists Select Austin CCA for July 20 Protest

This demonstration is in solidarity with the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), who have called for various actions of support in the third week of July, including a call for international activists to plan demonstrations that draw attention to Mexico’s many political prisoners. We as human rights activists would like to connect these struggles to include all imprisoned people. We support the EZLN and see the relationship between colonialism, U.S. foreign policy and immigrant detention here in Texas.

Friday, July 20, 12:00 noon – 1:00 PM


CCA office at 8015 Shoal Creek Blvd, Austin, TX.

Barbed Heart of the Americas

Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) is the world’s largest and most notorious private prison corporation, operating more than a dozen prisons and immigrant detention centers in Texas alone. Demonstrators will protest CCA’s profiting from immigrant detention expansion around Texas, including the T. Don Hutto detention center in Taylor which holds migrant families and asylum seekers, about half of whom are children.
