Support the Fight for Immigrant Workers' Rights

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.

Be in the Streets on April 10, the national day of action in support of immigrant rights, and in NYC on April 29 for the March for Peace, Justice, and Democracy – and then on to May 1.

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...

National Call



"Un dia sin immigrante" "A day without an immigrant"

Nationwide Immigrant General Strike

Immigrants contribute 7 billion in social security per year. they earn 240 billion, report 90 billion, and only are reimbursed 5 billion, "where are the 85 billion?" They also contribute to the U.S. economy 25 billion more than they receive in healthcare, etc., etc., etc. According to the anti-immigrant politicians and hatemongers, "immigrants are a drain on society." If this is true, then during the day on May 1st the stock market will surge, and the economy will boom. If not, we prove them wrong once and for all. We know what will happen!

Therefore, the "March 25th Coalition against HR4437 in Los Angeles," the organizers of the mega march of almost 2 million on March 25th, has called for an emergency videoconferenced meeting on April 8th between Los Angeles and any city that wishes to join the efforts toward "El
Gran Paro Americano 2006." The following meeting will take place in Chicago on April 22nd, we ask that all that wish to participate and be a part of a national effort on May 1st and beyond, to attend by finding facilities in your areas that can hold the meeting, technologically.

The points of unity are: No Work, No School, No Sales, and No Buying, and also to have rallies around symbols of economic trade in your areas (stock exchanges, anti-immigrant corporations, etc.).

Cities across the United States have marched during the week, therefore, in essence observing a regional boycott, which is only felt regionally. The March 25th Coalition against HR4437, calls for these regions to develop a national network that will "connect the dots." We believe with numbers we have power, the power currently necessary to keep the pressure on the White House to propose provisions that are just and fair for all immigrants.

We will settle for nothing less than full amnesty and dignity for the millions of undocumented workers presently in the U.S. We believe that increased enforcement is a step in the wrong direction and will only serve to facilitate more tragedies along the Mexican-U.S. border in terms of deaths and family separation.
