WHY WE ARE MARCHING ON MAY 1ST
Two years after the failure of HR4437, three new anti-immigrant, racist measures have been introduced by Republicans and supported by many Democrats. These are HR4088, the SAVE ACT, HR5515, and Resolution 239.

As we see no end to the war in Iraq or Afghanistan and the economy plummets, it is crucial that immigrants integrate into the workers rights movement to unite against the war at home, in the form of the aforementioned measures, and the war abroad.

Our Demands Are:

• Stop the War at Home and Abroad
• Stop the Persecution and Repression of Immigrants
• Stop the Violation of Labor, Human and Civil Rights of All Workers
• Stop the Gentrification of Our San Francisco Neighborhoods
• Unconditional Amnesty-Papers for All
