May Day: Joint Labor-Immigrant Rally!

GLAHR is calling for a joint labor-immigrant rally in the tradition of the long standing celebration of May Day as international workers day. Join us! We will be assembling at 11:00am at the Georgia Capitol (Washington St, Atlanta, Ga.) on May 1, 2012.

This May Day will mark a historic coming together of immigrants and working people in the face of the austerity measures faced by the economic depression. Our communities are struggling against anti-immigrant attacks, detention and deportation; union busting and cuts to workers’ wages and benefits; cuts to public services including education, health care, and transportation; and racist violence, police brutality, and mass incarceration.

On May 1, we will rally in solidarity, workers documented and undocumented, and students, around the following demands:

  • STOP SECURE COMMUNITIES AND 287(g) Programs
  • STOP THE ATTACKS ON WORKER’S AND UNIONS!
  • JOBS FOR ALL NO TO E-VERIFY
  • END DEPORTATION, END RACISM, AND END TO THE NEW JIM CROW ERA

Use public transportation and get off at Five Points or GA State Station.

Please Don’t Bring Any Sticks
