The La Resistencia national office staff has been working to design a
new web site. Please check it out, and let us know what you think.
We believe it has become a valuable resource for many to utilize. In
order to maintain our site, the cost is $40.00 per month. We are asking
for your financial support so that this site can become a powerful tool
in our struggle to build a broad and strong national movement of
resistance able to defeat the attacks on all immigrants.
The La Resistencia web site is a site people are using more and more, to
learn about resisting the war on immigrants in the U.S., and how they
can be a part of doing that. For example, during the organizing for the
third National Day of Solidarity with Muslim, Arab and South Asian
Immigrants on February 20, one woman from California e-mailed our
national office for the first time, and said, "... I have been to your
web site and now I know where to go for the information I need. At our
February 20 Solidarity Day event, we presented the stories of the
disappeared that we found on your site."
We need to post the kind of information that helps people to see, maybe
for the first time, that they have an interest in standing with and
defending our immigrant sisters and brothers. The site needs to provide
the materials for people to organize this movement. We need to be in
close communication with others who are taking up these battles and
struggling to defend and protect our sisters and brothers who are forced
to come to this country to survive. We want to learn from them, and
have the site contain timely stories of both the conditions and
struggles of immigrants. In order to do this, we plan to develop a team
whose tasks will be gathering and researching relevant information for
news shorts, getting input from other groups in these struggles, and
formatting this information to post on our site.
What will it actually take to build the kind of national movement of
resistance we need to reverse the anti-immigrant climate so that we can
stop the attacks on immigrants in this county? To bring people the
truth about the lives of immigrants so that they are compelled to stand
with them, and to beat back the government's repressive measures? The
scope of our movement must greatly expand, and an important part of this
will be through our web site. But in order to both maintain our site,
and improve it, we need the financial support of our members and friends.
