of demands. We should respects each other organizing and encourage and
supports everyone's issues:
1) Multi-ethnic, Decentralized and Multi-topic mobilization: while everyone

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!
