Phoenix, AZ – This Saturday, as thousands of protestors mobilize in Mexico, Los Comités de Defensa del Barrio will conduct a press conference and launch an International Boycott Campaign in solidarity with corresponding actions of protest in Mexico in denunciation of the corruption and collusion among economic elites in Mexico and the USA that have degenerated the political presidential campaigns of both countries into competitions for the electorate as a commodity to be bought and sold.
The action will take place in front of the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix, and will include a call for INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT of the financial interests in both countries that have colluded and defiled the political processes of democracy both nationally and internationally under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) ratified between both countries in 1994. In Arizona, the call for transparency has focused on the perpetrators of AZ SB 1070, namely ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council and their members in the Arizona State Legislature.
Also, the Barrio Defense Committees - Huelga del Pueblo will announce the BOYCOTT of the Vicente Fernandez concert on July 20 here in Phoenix as a prime example of how the financial consortia of NAFTA Latino and Anglo elites collaborate with mega media strategies and media personalities to subjugate and attempt to “manage the message” of the Boycott Arizona campaign of the Comités de Defensa del Barrio who have been fighting against the policies of state sanctioned racial profiling and discrimination legitimized by AZ SB1070.
