Organize for MAY 1st: A General Strike for Immigrant Rights


We (May Day in the Bay -- are calling for your support and participation in all-day actions in San Francisco on May 1st, in defense of immigrant rights, and towards a world without borders, where noone is "illegal".

Our effort is a response to the "March 25th Coalition against HR4437" in LA ( - the organizers of the 1.5 million person march for immigrant rights) who have called for a one day general strike on May 1st. The points of unity for May 1st are: No Work, No School, No Sales, and No Buying, and also to have rallies around local symbols of economic trade.

El Gran Paro | May 1, 2006 | San Francisco
No Work, No School, No Selling, No Buying!
Towards a World Without Borders, where No One is "Illegal".

8:30am - Montgomery & Market (Montgomery BART)
11:00am - Embarcadero (Embarcadero BART)
3:00pm - San Francisco Civic Center (Civic Center BART)
5:00pm - Federal Building (450 Golden Gate)

Come prepared with pots and spoons to bang together (CACEROLAZO), energy and creativity to drown out business in San Francisco! Wear white and look for the flags with a pot and spoon on them.

We Demand:

* Full, unconditional and immediate "amnesty" for all immigrants.
* Free movement for all people.
* Freedom for all ICE detainees and the abolition of detention centers.
* De-militarization of the US-Mexico border.
* The repeal of NAFTA and all neoliberal trade agreements which create economic conditions leading to the displacement of people.

We Pledge:

* Active resistance until we are all free to move!
* Active resistance against all attacks on immigrants, deportations
and detentions!

We Believe:

The increasing militarization along the US-Mexico border -- by now a veritable war zone -- serves as a brutal reminder that all borders operate as integral and deliberate parts of exploitative economic systems, inseparable from capitalism and neoliberal globalization. The US-Mexico border, and all other borders between nation-states and governments, are reproduced in our minds and throughout society, serving to enforce and legitimize the boundaries, disparities, and exploitative relationships between people. The demand for full amnesty and free movement of people, therefore, aims at justice for immigrants at the same time as it aspires to a world free from all such destructive divisions.

Hacia un mundo sin fronteras, donde nadie es "ilegal"!

Convergencias en San Francisco:

8:30am - Montgomery y Market (Montgomery BART)

Ven preparad@ con cazuelas, ollas, y cucharas grandes para hacer ruido (CACEROLAZO), energía y creatividad para sumergir todo el comercio en San Francisco! Vistase de blanco y busque las banderas con una cazuela y cuchara en ellas.

Nosotr@s Demandamos:

* "Amnistía" completa, incondicional e inmediata para todos los inmigrantes.
* Libertad de movimiento para tod@s
* Libertad para tod@s l@s detenid@s por ICE y la abolición de los centros de detención.
* desmilitarizar la frontera Estados Unidos-Mexico .
* La revocación de NAFTA y todos los acuerdos de comercio neo-liberales que crean condiciones económicas que inducen al desempleo másivo y al desplazamiento de la gente.

Nosotr@s Comprometemos a:

* Resistencia activa hasta que tod@s tengamos libertad de movimiento!
* Resistencia activa contra todos los ataques sobre l@s migrantes, incluso deportaciones, y detenciones!

Nosotr@s Creemos que:

El incremento de la militarización por la frontera de Mexico y Estados Unidos, que ya hoy dia se ha convertido en una auténtica zona de guerra y sirve como un recuerdo brutal sobre como todas las fronteras funcionan como partes integrales y intencionales de un systema de economia exploitativo y inseparable del capitalismo y de la globalización neo-liberal. La frontera de Mexico y E.E.U.U. , y todas las fronteras entre estados de naciones y gobiernos, son reproducidos en nuestras mentes y por toda la sociedad, y sirven para imponer legitimizar el racismo, la disparidad, y las relaciones de explotación entre la gente. Es por esto que la demanda para una amnistía general para tod@s l@s inmigrantes y el libre movimiento de la gente se dirige hacia la justicia para l@s inmigrantes al mismo tiempo que aspira hacia un mundo libre de diviciones destructivas.
