April 10 National Day of Action for Immigrant Rights! May 1 National Boycott!

Join the Immigrant Rights Movement!

April 10 National Day of Action!

May 1 Great American Boycott!

Dear ANSWER friend,

The massive protests, rallies, walk-outs and political strikes by immigrant workers and their supporters have shaken the political establishment in this country. It has been the action of the people themselves that has changed the political climate. All eyes have been focused on the streets as this new civil rights/workers rights movement has exploded in Los Angeles, Chicago and literally hundreds of other cities and towns.

It's important at this critical moment to keep up the pressure and continue to focus on the streets and the mass action of the people and never allow the politicians to decide how much equality or how much inequality, or how much repression, should be meted out to the millions of hard working immigrant families. The politicians and their corporate backers would like to see this new mass movement end because they know it could be the spark that ignites a revived nation-wide anti-racist labor movement. Immigrant workers, including the undocumented workers, are the sisters and brothers and allies of all those struggling for justice. The demand must be carried forward in all mass actions planned for April 10 and the upcoming May 1 Great American Boycott of 2006: Full equality for all workers and nothing less!

During the past weeks the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition has been deeply involved in mobilizing for the mass actions in Los Angeles and elsewhere. A.N.S.W.E.R. volunteers and organizers have been working round the clock to help in logistics, organization, mobilization and all the other tasks involved in showing authentic solidarity with the immigrant workers movement.

The ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) is supporting the call made by leaders of immigrant rights organizations for a May 1 National Boycott. The boycott - which means no work, no school, no shopping, buying, or business as usual - will show the country that the immigration debate is not a choice between bad and worse. The people have a voice, and the people say, "Full rights for Immigrants! Amnesty for Undocumented Workers!" No human being is illegal - full equality is not only a reasonable and achievable demand, it is also a fundamental right.

For the past four and a half years, the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition has organized mass demonstrations from coast to coast against the Bush administration's criminal war drive, and its assault on civil rights and civil liberties. The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition has linked the fight against war and militarism with the struggle against racism and for social justice.

May 1 Great American Boycott: A National Day Without an Immigrant

Join immigrants and supporters to make Monday, May 1, 2006 a national “day without an immigrant.” Anti-immigrant politicians and hatemongers call immigrants “a drain on society” - they try to pass repressive legislation like HR 4437 and encourage groups like the racist “Minutemen.” But immigrants contribute billions to the economy and receive few benefits in return. We will settle for nothing less than full amnesty and dignity for the millions of undocumented workers presently in the United States. Let’s show the government, corporations and racist politicians that a powerful, united peoples’ movement has the power to win Civil Rights, workers’ rights and make history. No business as usual on May 1!

On March 25, 2006, over a million people protested for immigrant rights in Los Angeles.

They are taking over our streets, our cities and soon our country. The very amount of people is extreme the fact that they are defiantly taking our streets again and again and again is EXTREME.

Thousands and thousands of extremists taking over our streets almost every day by liberals has gone beyond annoying.
