National Latino-based Group to boycott Macayo’s Restaurant for hosting fundraiser of Russell Pearce (anti-immigrant politician). PROTEST this Thursday night!Wednesday, June 13th, 2012
I used to be a Republican but left the GOP last year due to the extreme bigotry here in Arizona withthe likes of Russell Pearce
and Joe Arpaio. I left the GOP for good and will be an independent voter for quite some time. I’m not the only one feeling this way … according to a recent poll, more Americans are leaving the Republican and/or the Democratic party and identify as independent voters.
That said, I do still have several GOP friends and I was just informed by a moderate Republican friend of mine that Russell Pearce is having a fundraiser at Macayo’s Restaurant tomorrow night. The National Tequila Party has notified Macayo’s restaurant of a possible boycott via email.
I called Macayo’s Restaurant and they are unaware of a Russell Pearce fundraising event so I had to forward them the Pearce fundraiser email to them today.
This also leads me to believe that one of Pearce’s friends such as Constantine Querard(Tea Party extremist) may have been the one to secure space for Pearce at the restaurant which is located at:
4001 N Central Ave
Phoenix, AZ 85012
I forwarded the below email to Macayo’s Restaurant to make them aware of our protest and boycott. I am told a manager at Macayo’s corporate office will be calling me first thing in the morning. Macayo’s may not be aware of the Russell Pearce fundraising controversy this will cause and we are giving them until morning to respond. We have already alerted the store management that Pearce is the sponsor of anti-Latino and anti-immigrant sentiment via SB 1070.
Latinos, Mexican-Americans, Chicanos all over the southwest will soon be notified that Macayo’s Restaurant is hosting a Russell Pearce fundraiser. As many of you may already know, Russell Pearce is the sponsor of the infamous anti-Latino and anti-immigrant SB 1070 bill that sparked a hateful anti-Latino sentiment across our Country.
The National Tequila Party will be protesting Macayo’s tomorrow since we know that Pearce is having a fundraiser at his event.
On another note, these individuals will have the tea party extremist millstone hooked around their necks as they seek the Latino vote in future years. The below are friends of Russell Pearce (sponsor of anti-Latino and anti-immigrant legislation):
Senator Sylvia Allen · Senator Frank Antenori · Senate Andy Biggs · Senator Judy Burges · Representative Chester Crandell · Representative Eddie Farnsworth · Representative John Fillmore · Representative David Gowan · Representative Rick Gray · Representative Peggy Judd · Representative John Kavanagh · Senator Lori Klein · Representative Debbie Lesko · Representative Nancy McLain · Senator Al Melvin · Representative Steve Montenegro · Representative Justin Olson · Representative Terri Proud · Senator Steve Smith · Representative Michelle Ugenti
