Join the civil resistance against SB1070! Free Salvador Reza!

Puente leader Salvador Reza arrested without cause.
Free Sal Now.

A leader of human rights was wrongfully arrested today [Friday, July 30, 2010]. Salvador Reza is being held by Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio as a political prisoner in Arizona. Sign the petition that says, "I Stand with Sal. Free Him Now."

Today, Sheriff Arpaio responded to continued acts of non-compliance by targeting and arresting human rights organizer and leader of the Phoenix-based Puente Movement, Salvador Reza.

Reza was getting in his car outside a rally across the street from the Sheriff's jail when several Sheriff deputies surrounded him and placed him in handcuffs without cause.

Previous and unrelated to Reza's arrest, 10+ people of conscience placed themselves in front of a caravan of Sheriff vans to block them from carrying out another raid in the community. Protestors chanted "Arrest Arpaio, Not the People" and "Not One More."

If you're in the Phoenix area, join Puente Movement outside the jail at 35th ave & Lower Buckeye. If you're outside the area, text "Arizona" to 50555 to donate $5 to the bail fund or click,
