Batavia Immigrant Detention Center

Standing  in Solidarity with Hunger Strikers at Batavia Immigrant Detention Center: Justice 4 Migrant Workers, Rochester Rapid Response Network and the  WNY Peace Center reported that ICE is punishing hunger strikers in Batavia with solitary confinement. In response the groups staged a “Standing In Solidarity With Hunger Strikers” at Batavia Immigrant Detention Center, in Batavia NY, just outside of Buffalo on January 19.  Part of the action was a cacerolazo, where   pots and pans banged and other noise makers used  to let those  inside know they had support.
