We the people of 21st America say…

Even though you might be hundreds or thousands of miles away…perhaps on another continent … please feel free to share this information. Share it with any and all friends, defenders and champions of liberty. Share this with the media, organizations and anyone that are striving to see humans not treated inhumanely as in these prison camps. Anyone that you feel would like to be aware of our American grass roots outrage, protest and dissention over 21st Century slavery and concentration camps. We the people are taking the offensive against this inhumane and immoral treatment of desperate fellow humans whose only crime is to want to live … and live the American dream.
From our hearts we echo the words of Liberty that drew our forefathers here. As we grew up in the land of the free…we did not know that the elitists of our country would convert our country into an international mockery of human and children’s rights…a place where the price of freedom was controlled by criminal minds who would enslave others…in our era…in for-profit prisons.
We the people say to Congress, Chertoff and ICE. You have lost all semblance of a conscience. Cease to betray the fundamentals of America . Free these people. Now!!!
P.S. If you can join us on this important and historical walk…if only for a mile…it would be an honor to walk with you. You have about 75 miles over five days to choose from. On this walk…I will be accessible only on my cell phone. (830)734-8636.
