Thousand of protesters in Postville, Iowa

On May 12, 2008, nearly 400 workers were arrested in an ICE raid on the Agriprocessors, Inc., meatpacking plant in Postville, Iowa. In the following months, witnesses and news media reported a number of human rights and due process violations against the workers that took place at the plant and in the makeshift courtrooms set up by the U.S. government following the raid. On July 27, 2008, activists and people of faith from Iowa and across the country marched in Postville to show solidarity for the workers and their families and to call for fair and humane immigration reform.
This video reflected the needs of Humane and comprehensive Immigration reform.
