PACC member Jim Colton’s image of the Raging Grannies appeared in a September 29 (2020) Washington Post article about the exit of Palantir from Palo Alto.   

 

As part of #NoTechForICE campaign, Mijente, supported by the Raging Grannies, organized a Good Riddance demonstration against Palantir on September 21, Palo Alto’s last day as Palantir’s headquarters. The following day, the Colorado section of Mijente held an Unwelcome Party in Denver, the new headquarters.  Palantir is reputed to have collected and analyzed data on immigrants for ICE.  Mijente is an immigration rights advocacy group.

 

Jim photographed the Palo Alto Palantir event. He is a member of Pro Bono Photo, a group of photographers who cover events for social and environmental justice in the Bay Area.
