NEWS FOR THE FARM LABOR ORGANIZING COMMITTEE (FLOC)
(ESPANOL ABAJO)

AN INVITATION TO OHIO IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS
AND SUPPORTERS

National Day of Action for Immigrant Rights

April 27, 2005 - Washington DC
 
Dear Friends,

We are at a crucial moment in the struggle for full
human and labor rights to the millions of immigrants
living and working in the US. Senators from both
parties are working on a bi-partisan legalization
proposal for the immigrant workers who work hard to
contribute to the greatness of this country. President
bush is also pushing for a work visa program. But the
racist groups in congress are decided to stop anything
that would favor immigrants. The House just passed a
bill introduced by congressman Sensenbrenner to build
a biggest wall on the border with Mexico and eliminate
driver license rights for immigrants. THIS IS THE TIME
OUR VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD.

Immigrants and supporters from all over the US are
calling for a NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION IN WASHINGTON DC
on Wednesday April 27, 2005.  We will meet with
Congressional representatives to demand permanent
residency rights for immigrants who have been working
hard and contributing to our country, and we will
raise our voices against the racist attacks on
immigrants.  

IMMIGRANTS DESERVE RIGHTS AND DIGNITY.

THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO: (1) Endorse this Day of
Action. Send an email to bmaya1@floc.com. (2) Come
with us to DC. Our reps in Congress need to hear from
the voices of immigrants and non-immigrants alike that
giving rights to immigrants will benefit all America,
a nation of immigrants.  (3) Donate as many seats as
you can to help others go. Any amount you can donate
will be appreciated. Make your tax-deductible checks
to Farm Labor Research Project & mail to the address
below.

Buses will depart Toledo, OH on Tuesday the 26th of
April at 10:00 pm. Please contact us to reserve your
seat. Seats cost $55 for the round trip.

The Toledo delegation is a Tribute to Sister Joan
Michalik (1938-2004) a loyal supporter of immigrant
rights. Sr. Joan Presente!!!
The new
development is that racists anti-immigrant groups
working under the
Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) are
mobilizing their
troups too on the same day. Please check their web
page www.fairus.org
under "Hold their Feet to the Fire" campaign for more
info. on their
anti-immigrant efforts. More than ever, we need to
take a message of
tolerance to Congress. Thank you for the great efforts
everybody is doing!

Amigos/as,

 

Estamos en un momento crucial de la lucha por los
derechos de los inmigrantes que viven y trabajan en
los Estados Unidos. Senadores de ambos partidos estan
trabajando en una propuesta comun de legalizacion. El
Presidente Bush tambien parece firme en empujar su
programa de visas de trabajo. Pero los grupos racistas
en el congreso estan decididos a parar cualquier
propuesta que ayude al inmigrante. La Casa de
Representantes aprobo una propuesta introducida por el
congresista Sensenbrenner para construir un muro mas
alto en la frontera con Mexico y eliminar las
licencias de manejar para inmigrantes.  ESTE ES EL
MOMENTO EN EL QUE SE TIENEN QUE ESCUCHAR NUESTRAS
VOCES.

 

Inmigrantes y apoyadores de todas partes del pais
estan llamando a un DIA NACIONAL DE ACCION EN
WASHINGTON DC el miercoles 27 de Abril.  Visitaremos a
nuestros congresistas en Washington para demandar
Residencia Permanente para todos los inmigrantes que
han estado trabajando y contribuyendo al pais, y
alzaremos nuestras voces en contra de las propuestas
racistas.

 

INMIGRANTES MERECEN DIGNIDAD Y DERECHOS.

 

ESTO ES LO QUE USTED PUEDE HACER: (1) Endorse este dia
de accion enviando un email a bmaya1@floc.com; (2)
VENGA CON NOSOTROS A WASHINGTON. DONE UN DIA DE
TRABAJO PARA LUCHAR POR SUS DERECHOS. Nuestros
representantes en el Congreso tienen que escuchar
nuestras voces y saber lo que queremos; (3) Done
dinero para el costo del autobus. Cheques deducibles
de impuestos pueden hacerse a Farm Labor Resarch
Project y enviarse a la direccion de abajo.
