Phoenix, AZ – Manu Chao, internationally renowned global music artist will perform on Wednesday, September 21 in solidarity with the Comités de Defensa del Barrio (CDBs) and other organizations from Arizona and across the country that have been fighting against the policies of state sanctioned racial profiling and discrimination such as AZ SB1070, the Secure Communities program of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), and the federal 287(g) program.

The National Day Labor Organizing Network (NDLON) and other allied organizations including Alto Arizona and TONATIERRA will join with the CDBs to celebrate the movement of community resistance over the past year which brought over 100,000 people to march in Arizona against SB1070 last May 29, 2010.  The CDBs are now actively organizing at the grass roots and regional levels to implement a series of boycott actions against the financial supporters of the policies of persecution and racial profiling resulting from the immoral collusion between private prison industry lobby groups with ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and state legislators across the country.

SB1070 was crafted in the bowels of ALEC and then imported into the Arizona State legislature by Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce.

On Wednesday, September 21 during the Festival de Resistencia, the Boycott Commission of the CDBs will conduct a COMMUNITY CONSULTATION to identify the priority targets for the ongoing La Huelga del Pueblo - Boycott of Arizona, calling for transparency and accountability for the economic interests that have been profiteering through contracts with the private prison industry in cahoots with law enforcement personalities and financial institutions across the state.

The Festival de Resistencia is being organized as a family focused event of celebration of the fight for Civil Rights, Human Rights, Indigenous Rights and the Rights of Mother Earth.  The festival is will be free of charge. It will be an alcohol and drug free event, and a peaceful celebration of the Spirit of Resistance, Rebellion and Regeneration.
