May Day 2008 is critically important. Will the optimism and hope 
expressed around the Presidential elections translate into an end of 
immigrant raids and deportations? Will it bring an end to the 
foreclosures of homes, the lowering of gas and food prices, or an end to 
lay-offs?

Regardless of the elections, immigrants and their supporters throughout 
the country will be marching once again on May Day, International 
Workers Day to say no to all the attacks against workers here and around 
the world.

We call on the progressive community, the anti-war movement, the women's 
& LGBT movement, and especially the labor movement, to come out for May 
Day 2008.
*/March for solidarity - an injury to one is an injury to all!/*

	*We Say:*

    * Black, Latin@, Asian, Indigenous, Arab, White - In Unity there is
      strength.

    * ICE raids are racist, anti-union and violate immigrant and US
      workers' civil rights & divide families.

    * Jobs & homes, not lay-off and foreclosures. Stop demolition of
      public housing in New Orleans & everywhere.

    * No war in Iraq. Bring the troops home now.

    * Political asylum for Victor Toro. No deporation for Flor Crisostomo.

    * Money for levees in New Orleans, not the US / Mexico border wall.

    * Repeal NAFTA, no more U.S. trade agreements that force migration &
      cause lay-offs here.
