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
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
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!
