ICE Facility Attacked in Loveland

Over the weekend of the 15th of May, an ICE field office in Loveland, Colorado was attacked.  Every window and door was shattered, totaling around twelve panes in all. 

The unmarked facility is one of many such hidden ICE buildings in the U.S. that attempt to operate in secrecy.  One tactic used by ICE to maintain this secrecy is to take people from their homes in the middle of the night to be "processed" before taken to privately-owned ICE prisons. 

By operating in secrecy, ICE is able to maintain this particular sub-station within a shopping and residential district without revealing the repression used to create and sustain borders.

This action was taken in the climate typified by SB1070 in Arizona and local anti-immigrant sentiment.  However, the ICE office would have been targeted regardless of legislation.

Resistance and attacks against manifestations of borders, prison and power will continue as long as families are separated and people are imprisoned, deported, and harassed.

As others have said-


Solidarity means attack.


Way to go--Much love to those who did this action!

Why is this on the sidebar anyway and not frontpage?  If I knew how to "vote" on it I would.

It makes me smile to read this and the earlier post from Colorado Springs!


much love to the people who

much love to the people who did this action!

why is this on the sidebar anyway and not frontpage?  if i knew how to 'vote' on an article i would.

thanks and solidarity!

direct action--more please!

Good to read this...I didn't see it for awhile since it's stuck over on the open newswire.  What's up with that anyway?  I mean why can we read petty infighting between Denver radicals on the front page of colorado indymedia but an action like this gets lost on the newswire?  Especially after a call to action for just this kind of thing (attacks against ICE) was published on the front page...

As the previous commentor mentioned--how does one promote an article...I can't seem to find a way to do it.  Any help is appreciated.

Anyway, I like this action!!!!

Using the Site

You create an account then you can go to the main page or click on articles in the news feed.  On the top left of any article you will see two arrows.  Up arrow adds a point, bottom arrow takes one off.  Click.  3 points or more means news feed gets bumped to the main page, unless it violates terms or is spam.  Also, sometimes the webmasters decide to put it up, even though it doesn't have enough points.  Personally I get frustrated when events, which aren't news stories, are posted in the news section and then bumped up to the main page by the webmasters.  Why have an event section at all!?
