Rage Against The Machine Announces Concert In Protest Of Arizona's Immigration Law

Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha has issued a statement in regards to the band's planning of protest concerts against Arizona state's controversial immigration law. The concerts are planned to take place somtime in July.

Zack de la Rocha:
"In the coming weeks we are going to be organizing a series of concerts that are respectful of the nature of the boycott in its attempts to isolate the Arizona government but not isolate the people, and especially the organizations that are fighting this on the ground. Many of us have begun to plan concerts that include bands that have signed on the Sound Strike, and make tickets available so that people within Arizona can come and see these concerts as they roll out. These are things that are being set into motion right now – a series of concerts or maybe even one giant concert in late July."

agree with them or not at least they stand for something. several times they've showed up places and played for free. their concert tix are usually lower priced than other bands with that level of popularity.

Well, this can all be simplified but then that wouldn't be controversial now would it? SB1070 is a law written to ENFORCE a law that is already on the books in every state in the nation. It's not about migrant workers doing work Americans don't want to do because migrant worker status is NOT the issue here. The issue is the illeagal's (note the definition of the word folks) who come here, how they get here, why they come and what they do while they're here. I have friends who were here illeagally and the thought of SB1070 looming over their heads made them go get their citizenship, thereby proving that it isn't impossible to obtain citizenship. If you want it, get off your a$$ and do it leagally. Quit making excuses and clouding the issue. The fact is this: Anywhere else in the world that your travels take you, you will find that the same will be expected of you. You must have your papers on you to prove that you are not there illeagally. Why is this concept so hard for everyone to grasp? And RATM can suck a wet fart out of my arse. If you hate this country so much, quit reaping the benifits of our capitolistic way of life you hypocritical a$$holes.

Tonight I am going to jump the fence around this piece of sh**'s mansion/estate, sleep in his guest room, and demand that he feed and clothe me for the rest of my life. I will then move my entire family into his mansion and he will also cover any medical bills that we may have over the years. I will demand free education, and private tutors will be called upon to instruct at the house, all on his dime. English will be spoken as a second language, with German being the number one language first and foremost. If he tries to evict me, I will protest in his bed room, yelling about how the hundreds of years ago a tribe of Native Americans had their huts in the exact spot where his mansion now stands, and remind him that the land still belongs to them, and therefore it is not his. I will also call him racist because...well...uh....he does not approve of squatting!

Well, jomama, i have been callerd racist before for standing up for americans rights instead of the illegals rights. I have confronted cops in the street here in charlotte nc who say that the illegals are not breaking any laws, so i call the cops cowards to their faces. It is the big business that wants the illegals here, not americans who are losing their jobs so some illegal who gets welfare as well as free mediacal care, food stamps, free living, can get more money to help put more americans in the streets, and out of their homes, so more illegals can be brought here to take the homes. Yes, the american govt, did it to the Indians, as well as other countries. HOWEVER, THE ONES WHO COME HERE WITH THE ANTI-AMERICAN MENTALITY ONLY SHOWS UN-EVOLVED THEY REALLY ARE. INSTEAD OF GOING AFTER THE ONES WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BAD THINGS THE GOVT HAS DONE, THEY INSTEAD GO AFTER THE AMERICAN CIVILIAN. THEY FEEL THAT WE ARE THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR IT ALL, YET THEY REFUSE TO PUT THE BLAME ON THE RESPONSIBLE ONES, THE US GOVT AND BIG BUSINESS!!

Sure there are lazy americans, and they trully do not deserve a life if they choose to live off the govt and do not want to find work, and that goes for all races!!! You seem to have a semi anti-american worker attitude with your post earlier, so by your own words american workers are lazy! If thats how you feel, then do not expect some people to take what you have say seriously either! It does not make me racist just because i stand up for american workers and american rights before some lame a$$ illegal who cant speak our language or hates our country but is here loving the easy life by stealing what they can from the AMERICAN tax payers, AND THAT INCLUDES YOU TOO JOMAMA! TAKE A LOOK AROUND BEFORE YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS IN THE STREET HOMELESS AND SOME FOREIGN FAMILY IS IN YOUR HOME LAUGHING AT THE AMERICAN FAMILY THAT IS NOW HOMELESS AND STARVING!!

Wow Branded, didn't mean to get you all riled up! I guess it's just my perspective of were I live. We don't deal with latino illegal aliens as much as Russians. I also live in a predominately caucasian area in Pa. But Pa has the mushroom farms and those area's deal with illegal latinos, but they are paid so little they are the only ones who will do it!

If you deal with Latino's who hate the US where you live, I can see where you are coming from, however, don't blame it on the color of the skin, is what I am saying! Yes, blame it on the Big Business and Government.

Well, I can blame the latinos because they know they are here illegally and taking jobs from americans because the slave driving head bosses want to save tons of money and fire the faithful workers who have been there for years so they can pay some illegal less and have less problems to deal with (taxes, insurance, workers comp, etc.)

ILLEGALS OF ALL COLORS ARE NOTHING BUT LEECHES THAT NEED TO BE ERADICATED FROM EXISTENCE IF THEY CHOOSE TO CONTINUE TO DESTROY AMERICANS LIVES SO THAT THE 3RD WORLD TOILET NATIONS CAN SAY THAT THEIR PEOPLE ARE TREATED SO GOOD IN AMERICA, YET SUB-HUMAN IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES. HAVE YOU SEEN THE WAY MEXICO HANDLES ITS ILLEGALS?! YET THEY WANT TO TELL US HOW TO HANDLE ILLEGALS IN OUR COUNTRY! THEY MURDER, RAPE, ENSLAVE ILLEGALS IN MEXICO EVERYDAY, YET THE WORLD TURNS A BLIND EYE BECAUSE AMERICA IS REACTING TO THE INVASION OF THE CO(KROACHES FROM THE SOUTH! KINDA HYPICRITICAL WOULDNT YOU SAY? OR HAVE YOU TURNED YOUR BACK ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AS WELL, BECAUSE YOU FEEL THEY ARE LAZY AND DO NOT CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO AMERICANS, AS LONG AS THE LAWS ARE BEING FOLLOWED BY THE AMERICANS AND NOT THE ILLEGALS WHO TERRORIZE AMERICANS EVERYDAY?

APPARENTLY, THATS THE WAY IT IS THESE DAYS WITH PEOPLE WHO FEEL THAT AMERICA IS SUCH A TERRIBLE PLACE FOR FOREIGNORS, YET AMERICANS ARE IMPRISONED DAILY AROUND THE WORLD OVER FALSE ACCUSATIONS AND LEFT TO ROT IN SOME 3RD WORLD TOILET PRISON! Yet these countries doing this to americans scream racism and anti-american propaganda at us when our country does it to their people! FU(K THE WORLD, NUKE IT NOW AND END THE HUMAN RACE ONCE AND FOR ALL, THEN PEACE WILL REIGN!!

Americans have been dumbed down, turned retarded and lazy by a system that created a dependent society, and now want to destroy that society by any means necessary. Illegals only add to the fire thats burning this country from the inside out. And the american people are the fire wood!

After all, we would all have better lives if we ditched our capitalistic foundation and "progressed" our society into a third world dictatorship ruled by an elite despot. Damn you America, damn you to hell!

What the master of ceremonies needs to do is read the law word for word to the crowd, emphasizing the parts that specifically outlaw racial profiling. But then again, if the sheeple understood that the law goes out of it's way to not include racial discrimination it would be that much harder for them to sell the Marxist propaganda that they are so dedicated to spreading. Right now 12 states are drafting similar laws, better boycott them, too. Not to mention that AZ's law mirrors Federal Law, but hey facts be damned!

Branded brought up a good point. Really the only people who profit from illegal immigration are the companies that hire hire alien workers; it's a good busy strategy in the sense that it increases their bottom line, but it's illegal (duh, that's why it's called illegal immigration), and it's the competing businesses who only hire registered citizens that are taking it in the a$$ right now. Basically it's like outsourcing, but illegal, because they're bringing the workers here without being registered as citizens. Not to mention these guys get access to all the state sponsored programs, most notably education and health care, without paying a dime in income tax. That means it also effects the school systems and hospitals that have to provide for these aliens without additional compensation, unless it's at the expense of the tax payer.

Also, all the loser drug addicts in the US are making the problem worse. There's a full blown war going on in Mexico that a lot of people don't know about; drug smugglers are fighting in the streets against the Mexican military so they can get their goods up to the states, and I'm pretty sure it's killed more people than the Iraq war. So all you loser junkies who complain about the wars overseas, you're still supporting a war just south of the border which is killing civilians every day. Honestly, I can't blame them for coming here, if drug runners were shooting it out with the National Guard in my neighborhood, I'd get the f*** out of Dodge, er, Indiana, too.

goose: The Sinaloa and Leyva Cartels just killed 21 people in the street yesterday 12 miles south of the Az/Mexico border. Every day the cartels smuggle drugs and illegals across our border (usually at the same time). The illeagals smuggling the dope have the choice of colon corking a couple kilo's of powder or get shot in the face if they refuse (sometimes beheaded as well so there can be no open casket-Mexicans are primarily Catholics). Once they get here, they're kept (at gunpoint) in "safe houses" until they pass the dope. Sometimes up to 50 illeagals in one 2 bedroom home with buckets of sh!t and piss strewn about the house. The cartels will continue to use and abuse them as long as they can or until the lucky ones escape. It's no hayride for the illeagals down here either, which is why I feel that everyone will benefit from this law. We have a very thick population of hispanics down here, and with a 78% approval rating for the law amongst voters, you have to assume that many hispanics are behind this law as well. The people who don't live here (like RATM) are the ones making a big stink over this and to that i'd just like to say that some people just need to mind their own fvcking business. As Agent pointed out above, if you don't live here you have no right to assume what is right or wrong for the people that do live here.

The fedral government's policy solution for AZ's troubles is to post signs on US soil stating that americans are not safe in some counties in AZ because Mexican drug smugglers have infested a corridor into the US and the area is unsafe for travel. That's some ignorance for ya! Why is it so hard for people to understand that AZ thinks that's unacceptable policy and have taken steps to provide LE the tools to implement and enforce more effective policy? Makes perfect sense to me! Why doesn't it make sense to you me,dude?

I just meant saying all latino people or minorities are whats wrong in America. I understand not wanting illegal immigrants to take the jobs here. But not every person that isn't white is an illegal immigrant.

me dude, we know this. regardless of their color, if they are illegal, they should be put in prison or deported! WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, ARE BEING DRIVEN INTO POVERTY SO THE 3RD WORLD SCUM CAN COME HERE AND STEAL FROM US, BECAUSE THEY CLAIM WE OWE THEM FOR WHAT OUR GOVT DID TO THEIR COUNTRIES. f*** THAT UNEVOLVED MONKEY MENTALITY!!

Why is it when americans call out the people who are wronging us, we are called intolerant and racist? seriously, answer that 1 for me, if you can!!!! Its becasue the 3rd world trash have gotten the United Nations (true communism in its purest form) to make the US govt become hand puppets and are now sending the american people into homelessness and poverty. but hey, its only americans, so why should it matter huh?!?!?! the american tax payer is having to pay for these illegal piles of sh** to sit around and claim they are treated so badly, that they are allowed to get free food, housing, medical care, etc. and we have to pay thousands and thousands and thousands and millions of dollars so everybody who is not american can come here and get whatever the f*** they want for free and use the american people as toilet paper.

IF ANYBODY WHO IS NOT AMERICAN AND LIVING IN A FOERIGN COUNTRY SEES THIS AS RACIST, THEN GO AHEAD, FOR YOU TRULLY HAVE NO SAY IN THE MATTER ANYWAYS, AS YOU DO NOT LIVE HERE AND SEE WHAT GOES ON ON A DAILY BASIS.

I couldn't agree more with Branded.

I know how the social system / benefits work here in Scandinavia - more specifically in Finland - as I moved back here in late April and basically had to go through all the paperwork to make sure my back was covered.

The benefits an immigrant can get here with their extreme lies and sad stories... forget about it. It's absurd. Totally f***ing absurd.
First we have to provide financial aid (a very nice amount in total) through EU or UN to certain countries and as an icing on the cake, they come here - oddly out of all places - and collect even more benefits to a level where they really don't need to do anything at all.
Here's the problem: 99% of them - the so called "illegal immigrants, refugees" whatever the f*** etc - simply do Nothing. Zero. They collect their benefits, laugh in our face and call us "racist", while we're doing our best to make our lives And this country tick. They tell us their stories how they are "traumatized" by whatever and "unable" to work, or study etc while we - the tax payers - pay the bill.
Social parasites, the whole lot of them, and that's that.

You can call me whatever you want. I couldn't care less, And Amnesty International can kiss my as$.
