Support the Fight for Immigrant Workers’ Rights Justice for Hurricane Katrina Survivors The People United Will Never Be Defeated!
Dear Sisters and brothers,
We call on you to endorse and organize for the May 1 Great American Boycott 2006 in support of Amnesty and full rights for undocumented workers called by the March 25th Coalition Against HR4437 and many other immigrant organizations. (The May 1 national call is included below). In NYC, The May 1 Great American Boycott 2006 Coalition will rally and march on Monday, May 1 starting at 4:00 pm in UNION SQUARE, on 14th Street in Manhattan.
This is an issue that all working people and progressive organizations must embrace. The struggle for immigrant rights is a vital part of the struggle against racism and repression, and for the full rights of all working people. Let’s all be in the streets on May 1 in support of the call coming from the Los Angeles March 25th Coalition Against HR4437.
Organize local protests on May 1. Organize boycotts and student walkouts. Connect local issues that you’re organizing around with the struggle for Immigrant Rights. We strongly encourage all who are organizing May 1 events to make sure that their program and demands reflect solidarity with immigrant workers and Hurricane Katrina Survivors. Let’s build on the unity and momentum. To Endorse the NYC May 1st Action.
