Challenging UChicago Student to Support #FreeMaya

Maya Cruz
Chicago, CA, United States

Apr 17, 2019 — 

Friends,

Thank you for your support!

We are challenging students to support and take this case up. On April 25, this 5 ft poster signed by students will be delivered to President Zimmer!

Text of flyer taken to UChicago:

Will the University of Chicago be a campus where fascists have the right to speak and people fighting for a better world are prosecuted and jailed? What will you accept? What will you do?


Will University of Chicago be a campus where fascists have the right to speak and people fighting for a better world are prosecuted and jailed? What will you accept? What will you do?
Diya “Maya” Cruz is a revolutionary who was arrested at U Chicago and faces 7 years in prison for representing for revolution and participating in a protest of 11 minutes of silence for the 11 million undocumented immigrants under attack by the Trump/Pence regime. UCPD aggressively threatened the peaceful protesters, grabbed Maya, and accused her of battery. Maya was the only one injured.

Families separated, children in cages, immigrants demonized and terrorized...

Will YOU allow your university to participate in jailing Maya for standing up to stop this?

Or will you put the demand on Zimmer and UChicago that the charges be dropped?

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Put the demand to Zimmer and University of Chicago that the charges be dropped
  • Spread the word and build support for Maya
  • April 25th, 3pm at Levi Hall, 5801 S. Ellis be part of presenting the demand at Zimmer's office
  • Donate - fundedjustice.com/Free_Maya
