Date: Thu, 07 Feb 2002 21:50:30 -0800 From: Eduardo Capulong Subject: FEBRUARY 19: ALL OUT FOR IMMIGRANT AIRPORT WORKERS! ***PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY*** ALL OUT FEBRUARY 19! DAY OF ACTION AT ALL BAY AREA AIRPORTS TO CALL FOR: JUSTICE FOR IMMIGRANT AIRPORT WORKERS, SAFETY FOR PASSENGERS! Immigrant baggage screeners are not to blame for 9/11. Yet thousands of them stand to lose their jobs because of a post-9/11 federal law that requires all screeners to be U.S. citizens. In the Bay Area, 1,200 mostly Filipino workers face termination. Join hundreds of workers, allies and supporters at simultaneous rallies and press conferences February 19, the day the federal government takes over airport security. Protest this racist law and draw the line on the attacks on all immigrants and our civil rights and liberties post-9/11! Call for the retention of all immigrant airport workers here and across the country!
