Minutemen Founder at UCSD

***Please forward as widely as possible***

Dear UCSD/community member:

James Gilchrist, the founder and leader of the Minutemen Project has been invited to speak at UCSD.

For those of you that don't know him, Mr. Gilchrist is a high-profile, professional nativist rabble rouser.

His job consists of going around the country to spread lies about immigrants and sow fear and hatred towards them.

His 'lecture' will be at the UCSD Extension complex, room 129, this Thursday, October 16 at 10am

For official event listing, go to: http://extension.ucsd.edu/programs/osher/classes.cfm#series

According to the event's description: "Jim will speak about the origins of The Minuteman Project and the uncertain consequences to the United States if immigration policies and laws are not enforced."

Please plan to attend the event to speak out against Mr. Gilchrist's presence in our community.
We need to loudly and clearly (but peacefully) condemn UCSD's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the Marcella Coolidge Trust (co-sponsors) for inviting Mr. Gilchrist. His paranoid, hate-filled, xenophobic demagoguery cannot be allowed to pass as academic discourse.

Stay tuned for more details about this action.
