Anti-amnesty rally being promoted for November 14 (Saturday) in Big Bear Lake. Come and show your support for our immigrant families, friends co-workers and neighbors. This is your “four seasons resort,” as well as our home.
Though the organizers are not identified, they are requesting that anti-amnesty activists meet at the corner of Stanfield Cutoff and Big Bear Boulevard (Hwy 18) with “red, white and blue clothing and carry an American, military or Don’t Tread on Me flag, or carry homemade signs.”
This type of hateful activity has not been a part of Big Bear’s small-town life in the past, but Big Bear is now represented by County Supervisor Neil Derry, who has hired Joseph Turner to his staff. Turner’s Save Our State group is well known to the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.
Please join us to assure our immigrant families, friends, neighbors and co-workers of what our community truly feels in the face of this shame and blight. The location mentioned is just east of the Vons and Stater Brothers markets on Highway 18 (Big Bear Boulevard).
In Big Bear, immigrants are welcome. Nazis are not.
