To all supporters of immigrants' rights:

Undocumented immigrant workers have come under attack from all sides, with an alarming increase in raids and deportations. As we have seen in the last few months, ICE and the DHS are carrying out their own campaign on the issue of mass deportations and pushing for a guest worker program (ENDGAME). In the U.S., the goal of this persecution is to ensure that new comers to this country do not have basic rights, decent wages, working or living conditions, such as access to education, health care, and basic social services. It is time that our communities and our allies speak out loudly and clearly, and voice our demands during this electoral cycle.

Organizations from 11 different states around the country have made a call to coordinate a National Day of Action on October 11th or 12th. We choose October 12th for its significance in the history of this continent.

We consider that San Francisco and the greater Bay Area should take up this nation-wide call and organize an action in protest against these attacks on the rights of immigrant workers and their families - attacks that affect all of us, no matter where we were born. We invite all organizations and individuals that support the struggle of immigrant workers to join us in planning for an event on October 11th or 12th.

A meeting will take place on:

Monday, September 22nd, 6:30 p.m.
Mission Presbyterian Church, 3261 23rd Street (2 blocks from 24th and mission Bart)

Come and join us in this struggle! An injury to one is an injury to all!
¡Ya basta!
Stop the raids!
Stop the deportations!

In Solidarity,
Movement for Unconditional Amnesty

A todos los simpatizantes por los derechos de los inmigrantes:

Los trabajadores inmigrantes indocumentados están bajo ataque por todos lados, con un aumento alarmante en redadas y deportaciones. Como hemos visto en los últimos meses, el ICE y el DHS están llevando a cabo su propia campaña sobre la cuestión de deportaciones en masa y presionando para un programa de trabajadores huéspedes (ENDGAME). En EE.UU., el objetivo de esta persecución es garantizar que los recién llegados a este país no tengan derechos básicos, tales como salarios decentes, a la educación, a la atención médica, o a servicios sociales básicos. Es hora de que nuestras comunidades y nuestros aliados hablemos con una voz alta y clara sobre nuestras demandas durante este ciclo electoral.

Organizaciones de 11 estados a lo largo país han hecho un llamado para coordinar un Día de Acción Nacional que se llevara a cabo el 11 o 12 de octubre. Elegimos 12 de Octubre por su importancia en la historia de este continente.

Consideramos que San Francisco y la área de la bahía en general deben atender llamada que se esta haciendo a nivel nacional y organizar acciones contra estos ataques a los derechos de los trabajadores inmigrantes - ataques que afectan todos nosotros, no importando dónde nacimos. Invitamos a todas las organizaciones e individuos que apoyen la lucha de los trabajadores inmigrantes para unirnos en planear para el 11 o 12 de octubre.

La reunión se llevara a cabo:

Lunes, 22 de Septiembre 6:30 P.m.
Iglesia Presbiteriana de la Missión, 3261 23rd Street (a dos cuadras de la estación 24th st. y missión del Bart)

¡Únase con nosotros en esta lucha! ¡Un golpe a uno es un golpe a todos!
¡Ya basta!
¡Alto a las redadas!
¡Alto a las deportaciones!

En Solidaridad,
Movimiento por una Amnistía
