May Day! International Workers Day!

While there are some Muslim liberals and conservatives who are all into slamming
immigrants for our accents,for our culture, and our own understanding of Islam -
the huge American immigration population is taking a stand like never before.

We must also, however, consider the class and race context of immigration, the
corporate globalization that has created some of the most horrible conditions
in home countries.

It is about time that Muslims of all stripes take a clear stand in solidarity with
immigrants. Or, remain seriously divided - first along sectarian lines, and now we
even see some anti-immigrant sentiments rearing its ugly head amongst some Muslims.
That is not the way to go.

Come on all out - and stand in solidarity with the working class immigrants who will
be marching in huge and record numbers all over the USA on May 1st!

ASATA encourages folks in our communities to observe the May 1st boycott for
immigrants' rights!

NO WORK - NO SCHOOL - NO BUYING - NO SELLING

May 1st

From Philadelphia to San Francisco, millions of immigrants & allies will
leave school and work,and take the streets of the United States demanding dignity
and an end to immigrant attacks in congress.

From Buenos Aires to México City, there will be a boycott of US products.
From Shanghai to Sao Paulo, millions will celebrate international workers
day.

WHERE WILL YOU BE?


Please join your local rally (see below for Bay Area info).
If you will be in SF, join the South Asian/API/Arab/Iranian/Muslim
contingents at the Anti-Imperial rally beginning at the Yerba Buena Gardens

  • In the 1960's we marched with Latinos and shouted Viva Raza, which loosely translated means, Power to the People. May the people have their say again, loudly, so that the fat rich white men in Congress realize they exist as more than statistics. Or maybe they will when the country closes for the day. I love it.

    Viva Raza!
