MARCH/RALLY for IMMIGRANT & WORKER RIGHTS

Justice for Sean Bell

On May 1, we will march to One Police Plaza, NYPD Headquarters

Thursday MAY 1st

Stop the Raids & Deportations – May 1st Coalition <http://may1.info/>

Stop the raids and deportations!

Legalization Now · Justice for ALL

12 pm: Gather at Union Square, 14th Street & Broadway

4 pm: Rally & March

We Say:

    * Black, Latino, Asian, Indigenous, Arab, White – In Unity there is strength.

    * ICE raids are racist, anti-union and violate immigrant and US workers’ civil rights & divide families.

    * Jobs & homes, not lay-off and foreclosures. Stop demolition of public housing in New Orleans & everywhere.

    * No war in Iraq. Bring the troops home now.

    * Political asylum for Victor Toro. No deportation for Flor Crisostomo.

    * Money for levees in New Orleans, not the US / Mexico border wall.

    * Repeal NAFTA, no more U.S. trade agreements that force migration & cause lay-offs here.

May Day 2008 is critically important. Will the optimism and hope expressed around the Presidential elections translate into an end of immigrant raids and deportations? Will it bring an end to the foreclosures of homes, the lowering of gas and food prices, or an end to lay-offs?

Whatever the outcome in November, the May 1st Coalition for Immigrant and Workers Rights will be marching once again on May Day, International Workers Day to say no to all the attacks against workers here and around the world.

We call on the progressive community, the anti-war movement, the women’s & LGBT movement, and especially the labor movement, to come out for May Day 2008. March for solidarity, because an injury to one is an injury to all!

Rally called by May 1st Coalition for Immigrant & Worker Rights
