UNC Students Protest Anti-Immigrant Racism

Students at the University of North Carolina have received attention for their protest against Tom Tancredo, anti-immigrant activist, former congressmen, and brief contender for the Republican presidential nomination. 

Lucha, as a student organization to dedicated to defending undocumented workers, and promoting the interests of all working people, stands behind the brave actions of the UNC students. We stood up to Jim Gilchrist, Marvin Stewart and the racist thugs the Minutemen Project brought to Columbia University on October 4, 2006. 

Lucha is currently preparing a formal statement of solidarity, but in the mean time, we wanted to immediately express our solidarity to all those who stand up and expose racism and bigotry attempting to parade as acceptable political and intellectual discourse.
