Lights for Liberty – Vigil to end Human Concentration Camps will be held at 8 p.m. Friday, July 12 at Shue’s Pond in the City of Hayward.

Up North Engaged, a northern Wisconsin coalition of concerned citizens, will be hosting a candlelight vigil in solidarity with the tens of thousands of migrants enduring inhumane conditions at the  US southern border and around the globe.

On July 12, Lights For Liberty will bring thousands of people to locations worldwide as well as to concentration camps across the country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by migrants.

A recent report from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General has detailed conditions of dangerous overcrowding and prolonged detention of migrants on the US southern border citing a lack of food, hygiene, laundry facilities and medical care.

Speakers at the July 12 event in Hayward will include Cat Rios Keating, law clerk, Minneapolis Department on Human Rights; Beth Meyers, Representative, 74th Assembly District and Kevin McMullin, Northwest Wisconsin musician, activist and educator.

Shue’s Pond is located at 10607, just one block north of Main Street.
