|Third Street and Palou Avenue|
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
No matter what the decisions the lawmakers make to "reform" the immigration laws, we know that they will make some immigrant workers "legal" and others "illegal."
We will hold a rally June 19, 2006 at 5:00 p.m. at Palou Avenue and Third Street in San Francisco to demand General and Unconditional Amnesty for All Immigrants. We hold this rally in celebration of the date of June 19th, 141 years ago when it was declared the end of slavery by Black people in this country.
Our Black brothers and sisters continue to be a slave of racism and injustice just as we immigrants. And the government continues to put on Death Row the great leaders of the Black movement such as Mumia Abu-Jamal.
We make a call for unity at this rally in the Bayview so we can honor June 19th by making a commitment to sow the first seeds together in order to make a reality the emancipation of the Black people and the immigrants and to demand the immediate freedom of the great leader of the Black people, Mumia Abu-Jamal, innocent on Death Row.
