At least 700 marches, rallies and sit-ins are planned across the country on Saturday, June 30, to protest the ongoing illegal separation of children from parents. Currently more than 2,000 children are sequestered in prisonlike containment facilities (with less oversight then we give to the facilities housing the chickens that produce California eggs,) with no answer to when they might, if ever, see their parents again.
To kick off the Saturday protests, a rally and toy/clothing/basic necessities drive, organized by the nonprofit Women's March Los Angeles, was held outside City Hall on Thursday, June 28. Over and over again the speakers repeated the necessity to VOTE this November.

Currently on June 30 there are protests planned in Long Beach, downtown Los Angeles, Burbank, Pasadena, WeHo, Redondo Beach, Malibu, Claremont and Valencia. To get more information on a rally or march near you, go to moveon.org or click here.
