Call to Action!
We are a nation of immigrant populations. The groups working together for
this event include national and local organizations founded to work for civil
justice and civil liberties. National Immigrant Solidarity Network ActionLA,
Center for Constitutional Rights, Million Workers March, Student Peace Action
Network, APALA-LA, Kensington Welfare Rights Union, Still We Rise Coalition,
Nicaragua Network and many other human rights, labor and immigrant organizations.
Friday August 27, the day before the RNC Mobilization in New York City we
call for a day of immigrant workers and community activists to put minds together
and declare: No Immigrant Bashing! Support Immigrant Rights! No To
Sweatshops! End The Racism On The Community!
National Immigrant Solidarity Network and community, immigrant, human rights
and student activist organizations will come together to call August 27 The
Immigrant Worker Day of Action and Speak Out as a part of upcoming counter
Republican National Convention Mobilization at New York City, August 29 to
We hope the Speak Out! can achieve a bourgeoning unity among community
activists for a campaign strategy on immigrant-labor issues. We need to strengthen
the anti-sweatshop campaigns, and the fight against racism. We will further the
understanding on how to build a sustainable community campaign for the
alternative to state and corporate causing poverty and refugees.
We want people and organizations participating in the Speak Out! help build
the national structure for national campaign strategies.
We also hope the Speak Out! can be a model for the anti-globalization
movement by creating a the new direction for joining international campaigns with
community campaigns, to work with immigrant and student-labor organizations to
support domestic immigrant rights campaigns from Mexico, Central and South
Americas; and to link local issues to the anti-sweatshops and anti-globalization
We will take back our communities.
