On April 23, 2010, Arizona Governor Janis Brewer (R) signed Senate Bill 1070, the most radical immigration legislation in the United States, effectively permitting racial profiling in the state of Arizona. The law requires police to demand immigration papers from anyone who they have a "reasonable suspicion" is in the country illegally. This blog will chronicle the major events regarding this racist and inhumane law.
We enthusiastically encourage a boycott of the State of Arizona until the law is repealed.

"Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine has never been one to shy away from a political cause and now he's tackling one head on. In response to Arizona's controversial new SB 1070 bill he has organized The Sound Strike and recruited a long list of musicians that will boycott Arizona. In addition to Rage, Sonic Youth, Cypress Hill, Calle 13, Juanes, Conor Oberst and many more have agreed to not perform in Arizona." (via The Washington Post)
