Crusaders Of Justicia Response to the Just/Seehafer Apologies for Hate Speech

Crusaders Of Justicia was created to demand change through direct action such as strikes, boycotts and disruptive protests. We are opposed to using dialog as a substitute for taking meaningful action to end structural exploitation and discrimination. Crusaders believes all people have a responsibility to actively work to end hate and discrimination, and this is even more true for people who claim to regret contributing to it by engaging in hate speech. Apologies that are not accompanied by affirmative action to end discrimination are empty gestures that actually perpetuate Manitowoc's historical and on-going culture of racism.

Cruel Treatment of Immigrant Students at Holy Family College

A local school in Manitowoc, Holy Family College, entices students to come to our country through the F1 visa program and then fails to protect the students from the immigration bureaucracy. Christopher Ducasse, who comes from Haiti, has been a student at Holy Family College for three years and is a semester away from graduating with a Bachelors degree in music.

Christopher had his visa status abruptly terminated last Wednesday by the Dean of Student Development of the college, for a minor paper work problem which went unnoticed by the college itself. This unconscionable act of excessive bureaucracy is particularly egregious because it was committed by educators who presumably have a duty to protect their students, and educators at a religious institution no less.

Fighting For Justice In Manitowoc And Throughout Our Nation!!

Crusaders Of Justicia was present to observe numerous injustices in our criminal justice system during the recently concluded trial of Juan Cortez. People with financial resources and other advantages get far better treatment and greater leniency from the criminal justice system while disadvantaged people get harsher treatment and much more severe penalties. Crusaders is launching a campaign to expose these inequities and abuses in our criminal justice systems that occur throughout our nation and right here in Manitowoc county. Anyone interested in helping Crusaders fight for justice for all can sign up here:

Crusaders está lanzando una campaña para exponer estas desigualdades y abusos en nuestros sistemas de justicia penal que ocurren en toda nuestra nación y aquí mismo en el condado de Manitowoc.

Crusaders Of Justicia joined in the "Lights For Liberty" actions that were held in towns throughout the nation. "Indefinite detention of individuals and families is not a moral answer to the problems we face," said the Rev. Dr. Matthew L. Sauer, who has been sharing his recent experiences of giving humanitarian aid at the border in a column series in the Herald Times Reporter. "The unconditional refusal to accept asylum requests is not a moral answer. Forced separation of families is not a moral answer. The immediate charging of adults with crimes because they have crossed an arbitrary line is not a moral answer. Detentions centers are not a moral answer. ... Being human is our divine gift, human community our divine responsibility."

Crusaders Of Justicia is a new group formed to fight for justice by the rapidly increasing number of exploited families in the United States. In order to increase the impact for change we believe it is essential to unite the fights of all people under the current administration. We will demand change by taking meaningful actions such as boycotts, strikes, protests and other actions.

Our mission is to mobilize exploited families and their allies to fight for justice. We will target fundamental issues impacting our communities, not just symptoms.
