Stop Marriott’s Deportation Profiteering

July 22, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 6:30 pm UTC+0

Marriott has rented out its conference space by McCormick Place in Chicago to host a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) “trade symposium” Tuesday and Wednesday, July 23rd and 24th.

Show up with Chicago DSA’s Free Heartland Kids campaign to demand Marriott cancel this booking and end its profiteering off the deportation machine!

Just as Chicago’s Heartland Alliance and Maryville Academy accept millions of dollars a year from the federal government to detain and assist in deportations and ICE disappearances of hundreds of immigrant children, Marriott is accepting blood money from CBP to show this arm of the American Gestapo a good time and give them space to put on a trade show for their best ethnic cleansing methods.

We have a different idea of what Chicago hospitality looks like for concentration camp Kommandanten and the people who profiteer off them.

Come join us for any of these 6 time-slots in 2 different locations over the first three days of next week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday):

MONDAY (6/22) 11:30am-1:30pm AND 4:30-6:30pm @ Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile (540 N Michigan Ave)

TUESDAY (6/23) 11:30am-1:30pm AND 4:30-6:30pm @ Marriott Marquis Chicago (2121 S Prairie Ave)

WEDNESDAY (6/24) 11:30am-1:30pm AND 4:30-6:30pm @ Marriott Marquis Chicago (2121 S Prairie Ave)

We’ll be showing up at THE MARRIOTT ON MICHIGAN AVE on Monday, because Marriott as a whole is profiting off this CBP symposium, and we won’t let the company hide this shameful festival down by McCormick Place. Marriott as a whole is stained by this blood money, just as Heartland Alliance and all its programs are.

If Marriott still chooses to give quarter to CBP, we’ll be showing up at THE MARRIOTT BY McCORMICK PLACE on Tuesday and Wednesday to shame the profiteers as they work and to not allow CBP another peaceful welcome into our city.

We’ll also be operating organized call-ins to Marriott to demand they cancel their booking with CBP. More info on this will be posted in the Facebook event page discussion as well as on other CDSA channels.
