Today’s Press Conference in Phoenix in response to the SB1070 decision, with Salvador Reza and Pablo Alvarado

We bring you special coverage of the beginnings of Arizona’s Senate Bill 1070, live from Phoenix, Arizona; we’ll be speaking with three major Arizona organizers: Pablo Alvarado, of the National Director of the National Day Laborers Organizing Network, Tupac Enrique Acosta, Director of Tona Tierra, a social cultural center for indigenous and Spanish speaking communities, and Salvador Reza, Director of Puente Arizona; with them, we’ll go in depth on today’s judicial decision which gives a slight game-changer for SB1070, at least for the moment; we’ll also speak with some young Arizona activists who have been fighting the racist law for months.
