Wed 5/20: #FreePolyane Action at Market Plaza



On Wednesday, May 20 at 8:00 p.m. at Market Plaza in San Antonio we will be gathering to call for the liberation of POLYANE SOARES DE OLIVEIRA DOS SANTOS and her 10 year old daughter who have been detained at Karnes since August of last year. Polyane is one of many women who carried out a hunger strike for their freedom and to bring attention to the inhumane imprisonment of migrant women and children under ICE. Help us to send a message that ALL of the women and children must be free and we must abolish “Family Detention”.

Polyane along with her child faced retaliation for being on Hunger Strike. Recently, due to her prolonged detention she was unable to celebrate the birthday of one of her children. Join us to celebrate her child’s birthday and demand that she be reunited with her family and released. Migration is a human right and women and children should not be incarcerated. #EndFamilyDetention
