When civic vandal Gaudencio Fernandez put up his newest version of a billboard decrying the existence of national borders, he had a lot to tell us about how he and his lawyer worked hard to ensure that the new structure adhered to the building and zoning codes in the City of Manassas. A week later, at a court hearing about the multiple notice of violations he received for constructing this monstrosity, he suddenly claimed to not have a lawyer and was granted a continuance to this Friday. That delay has allowed the Chicago-based Immigrant Solidarity Network to help organize protests in Manassas, where the Mexica Movement crowd and their hangers-on can complain that Fernandez isn’t getting equal treatment, as if the leniency he got for over a year the last go-around would have ever been afforded to anyone other than an ethnic grievance monger like Fernandez.
So the circus continues this Friday, starting at 10AM, according to this email alert from Barry Carter, who pointed out during last year’s May Day events in DC that no “native americans” should ever be subject to borders in between rallies promoting FMLN candidates for the elections in El Salvador. If you’re the right ethnic group, the law doesn’t apply to you in this utter nutbag’s view.

9500 Liberty Wall–Free Speech Suppression
Our free speech rights are being suppressed once again. This weekend Gaudencio Fernandez led in the placement of a sign on his property at 9500 Liberty Street in Manassas VA. With in hours racist with Save Manassas contacted the town officials and the building inspector issued a stop work order. The police were called. Our people continued to erect the sign. The sign is complete now and reads:
President Obama, Eliminate the Borders that Divide and Conquer People of Color! Stop Deportations!
Stop 287g in Prince William County and Manassas City! Support United Families and Education for all!
Town officials have taken Gaudencio and Delia to court with an effort to get them to stop construction and remove the sign. His court date is Friday at 10AM. We have a march and rally planned for Friday leaving from the wall at 9500 Liberty Street in Manassas VA and walking to the court house.
We need as many people to show up for the march as possible or to call email or write or Fax their support for our rights for free speech. If you call please also follow up with an email or fax. If we do a Freedom of Information Act request we can get copies of all people who have written for or against the free speech.

Friday should be a lot of fun. A bunch of outsiders start pounding the Manassas City Council with emails, hoping that when they later do a FOIA of the emails they just sent this will establish some sort of statistical evidence that most people think we shouldn’t have borders and we really need more illegal aliens during an economic downturn. It’s interesting that they think an organization called “save manassas” is wholly responsible for all the outrage in the city, and that it wouldn’t have anything at all to do with this being the fourth highly visible insult that Fernandez has delivered upon the residents of the city. I can just imagine what the protest is going to be like.
Mark my words: nothing will damage the image of the illegal alien lobby in the eyes of the residents of Manassas more than this outrageous behavior. Let’s hope they do their best to fulfill this prediction.
