May Day 06 Planning - Albuquerque

There will be a planning meeting for International Workers' Day (May 1st/"May Day") events Thursday the 13th at 6:00 at El CENTRO de Igualdad y Derechos, 1701 Broadway SE (Southwest corner of Southern and Broadway south of Cesar Chavez--- past "La Esperanza" store). If you can't make it, but would like to be part of the planning, please call Rachel Lazar at 246-1627 or feel free to send somone in your place.

We are hoping that students will be there to coordinate and organize together.

Some of us are hoping to connect the actions in support of Immigrant Rights to other worker issues such as a living wage, shorter work weeks, health coverage, longer paid vacation time, etc... That would hopefully create a broader worker solidarity. Issues of indigenous people are also key to the whole "immigration" discussion, and anti-Indigenous/anti-Mexican/Latino sentiment.

Hi, I enjoyed your article on immigration, I think this is a very important dialogue to have and that Bloggers are making the climate very democratic. Feel free to look at some of my posts on the issue at my blog
