Protest Against Muslim Ban at Bangor International Airport (Bangor)
January 29, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
We say no to Racism! We say no to Islamophobia! We say no to#muslimban!
Participants will gather outside near “international arrivals” and line the sidewalk
People are invited to bring signs, candles and drums
People are invited to make speeches and to say why it’s important to stand against hatred, racism, and xenophobia.
The ACLU won a major victory by getting a stay of removal granted for the folks who are trapped at airports, but it DOES NOT end the refugee ban, it DOES NOT end the Muslim ban, it DOES NOT make it possible for people to come back if they aren’t already on a plane.
We need to keep the momentum going.
An official at Bangor International Airport told me “There is no formal permit process. I have notified the Airport Director and he will notify the staff on duty tomorrow. We do ask that you confine your group to areas that will not impact Airport operations and security, passengers, and traffic.”
