As part of this effort, a growing number of union members (including some at LAS) have signed a statement, “New York City Workers Stand with the Muslim, Arab, and South Asian Communities: Our Grief Is Not an Excuse for Racism, Islamophobia, Bigotry or War,” posted at: http://www.laborforpalestine.net/wp/2010/09/07/workers-stand-with-the-muslim-arab-and-south-asian-communities/

Subject: Info about counter-demo against anti-mosque demo called by tea party

This is a link to a flier about a counter-demonstration being called this Saturday, 9/11 against an anti-mosque demonstration called by tea party supporters and other generally bigoted groups.  I just would like to point out, in anticipation of some of the negative replies, that the groups calling this counter-demo aren’t calling it against the memory of 9/11 and aren’t protesting any of the memorial services.  It was the right-wing who called a demonstration on 9/11 and this is a demonstration against bigotry.

The organizers are also asking for legal observers, so if you can volunteer, please let me know.
