AFT Seattle Local 1789, AFL-CIO, wishes to state publicly:

The November 2015 repulsive and horrific terrorist attacks in Lebanon, France, and most recently, Mali, have been followed by a rise of anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim bigotry in the U.S. and world media.  These public statements create another form of terror as they contribute to an atmosphere of oppression and fear.
