Friday August 27, the day before the RNC Mobilization in New York City we call for a day of immigrant workers and community activists to put minds together and declare: No Immigrant Bashing! Support Immigrant Rights! No To Sweatshops! End The Racism On The Community!




Background Information

National Immigrant Solidarity Network and community, immigrant, human rights and student activist organizations will come together to call August 27 The Immigrant Worker Day of Action and Speak Out as a part of upcoming counter Republican National Convention Mobilization at New York City, August 29 to September 2.



We hope the Speak Out! can achieve a bourgeoning unity among community activists for a campaign strategy on immigrant-labor issues. We need to strengthen the anti-sweatshop campaigns, and the fight against racism. We will further the understanding on how to build a sustainable community campaign for the alternative to state and corporate causing poverty and refugees.



We want people and organizations participating in the Speak Out! help build the national structure for national campaign strategies.



We also hope the Speak Out! can be a model for the anti-globalization movement by creating a the new direction for joining international campaigns with community campaigns, to work with immigrant and student-labor organizations to support domestic immigrant rights campaigns from Mexico, Central and South Americas; and to link local issues to the anti-sweatshops and anti-globalization movements.



We will take back our communities.
