Points of Unity
On May Day 2007, National Immigrant Solidarity Network is calling for a multi-ethnic, decentralized, multi-topic and multi-tactic national day of mobilization to support immigrant workers rights. Our ten points of unity:
1) No to anti-immigrant legislation, and the criminalization of the immigrant communities.
2) No to militarization of the border.
3) No to the immigrant detention and deportation.
4) No to the guest worker program.
5) No to employer sanction and "no match" letters.
6) Yes to a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
7) Yes to speedy family reunification.
8) Yes to civil rights and humane immigration law.
9) Yes to labor rights and living wages for all workers.
10) Yes to the education and LGBT immigrant legislation.
We acknowledges that there'll be multiple call to actions from across the country to organize May Day 2007, and each coalition will present their sets of demands. We should respects each other organizing and encourage and supports everyone's issues:
1) Multi-ethnic, Decentralized and Multi-topic mobilization: while everyone will pledge to support immigrant workers rights at May Day 2007, local groups can choose to includes any other topics for their mobilizations: civil rights, anti-war, Katrina, labor rights, health care...., etc.
2) Decentralized Multi-Tactic May Day organizing: We will encourage everyone to organize their actions at May Day, but will let local groups to decide what they want to do at the day: march, boycott, strike, lunch action, vigil, community event, conference or congressional lobby day, etc.
Understanding the connections between our individual conditions of life and the lives of people everywhere in the word allows us to come together and organize across all borders. WE NEED to link the connections between: wars in Africa, south America, Asia, Iraq, Palestine & Korea with sweatshops in Asia as well as in Los Angeles, New York; international arm sales and WTO, FTAA, NAFTA & CAFTA with AIDS, hunger, child labors and child solider; multinational corporations and economic exploitation with racism and poverty at home--then we can win the struggle.
Let's all come together, on May Day 2007, to build a new immigrant rights
and civil rights movements!=================================================================

May Day 2007: Time for Builders of the New to take Center Stage
One Humanity! One Struggle for the Rights of All!
May Day 2007 will be a vibrant expression of workers and peoples across the country and worldwide standing up to say One Humanity! One Struggle! We Demand A World That Guarantees Our Rights! In the U.S. tens of thousands will march and rally in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Phoenix and more than 100 cities and towns. In all regions of the country there is broad rejection of government efforts to criminalize undocumented workers and terrorize national minority communities. No to Raids and Collective Punishment! Legalization for All Now! The Government is the Criminal! can be heard at meetings, rallies, marches, vigils and more, as peoples stand together to represent humanity.
Everywhere the battle is engaged: the old imperialist world of slavery, indentured servitude, hunger, exploitation, racism and war is faced with the combat of the new, the striving of the peoples for another world that guarantees the rights of all. There is the pro-war old facing the drive for new antiwar governments. There is the anti-social old, wrecking education, healthcare and the economy itself, in combat with the drive for pro-social governments upholding social responsibility. There is the danger of the old, there is the challenge to ensure the new emerges victorious. May Day 2007 embodies the challenge to reject everything old and decadent by waging a merciless struggle against it.
The U.S. Marxist-Leninist Organization salutes workers and peoples of all countries taking up this challenge to build the new! We salute all those marching and organizing in the U.S., united with peoples everywhere to demand and forge a world where the rights of all are guaranteed. This new is being created on the basis of the modern working class and on the most advanced thinking and theory coming out of the contemporary conditions. These are exciting times for all those who wish to create the new world. Let us together make it a reality!
U.S. imperialism is standing at the head of all the forces of reaction striving to block the victory of the new. In an effort to save itself and keep its power, the government is using its three-pronged war on terrorism, war on immigrants and war on drugs. It is acting with broad impunity against the peoples. War, terrorism, use of force and collective punishment are its only answers.
Reality shows clearly that the whole system of U.S-style democracy is failing. Yet far from removing itself from the stage of history, the U.S. rulers are hell-bent on dragging everyone backward, back to slavery, lynchings, genocide and endless war. The elections in 2000, 2004, 2006 and even before also show the failure of the system. And more significantly, they show that the new cannot be built on the basis of the old. The old political set-up, with the old constitution, will not do. It must be a new poltical set-up of our own making, a new democracy vesting sovereignty in the people themselves in actual deeds not empty words. It must be a history of our own making, of revolution and opening the path to progress by defending rights. Conditions are ripe for change and the necessity is clear. What is needed is for the working class to lead all the peoples in taking center stage.
The broad demonstrations here and worldwide, with their demands for rights, uniting youth and workers, national minorities and women, anti-war and immigrant rights activists, show the internationalist spirit of the working class and people. They embody this new and the necessity to take it further. It is time for the workers to take center stage as the builders of societies in their image, in their internationalist spirit that unites and represents all.
One Humanity! One Struggle for the Rights of All!
Time for the Working Class to Take Center Stage!
