A few dozen people chanted and held signs Tuesday showing support for those arrested while blockading downtown Phoenix’s 4th Avenue Jail last July.
Demonstrators marched in front of the Maricopa County Justice Center chanting slogans and calling for a boycott of Arizona over its tough immigration stance.
One of the people arrested July 29th is the Reverend Susan Frederick-Gray. She told supporters Tuesday SB 1070 creates a second class citizenship in Arizona, is immoral and wrong.
During the July protest, hundreds of opponents of SB 1070 massed at the downtown jail. They beat on a metal door and forced sheriff’s deputies to call for backup.
Officers in riot gear opened the doors, waded into the crowd and hauled off those who didn’t move. They arrested at least 23 people, and more were detained elsewhere.
