WHEN: Sat, Oct 16, 12 noon

WHERE: Assemble at Olympic & Broadway

Downtown Los Angeles

On Saturday, October 16, immigrants of all nationalities and their supporters will march from Olympic and Broadway through downtown Los Angeles to demand full rights for undocumented workers, and to stop the raids and racism against all immigrants. The march will culminate in a mass rally with well known speakers, musicians and more. Bring your friends and family. The march and rally are fully permitted.

Excitement for October 16 is growing each day. The march is receiving broad and wide-spread support in California and throughout the nation. It is a march to support thestruggle of ALL immigrants!

More than 80 organizations representing Mexican and Central American immigrants have endorsed and are actively mobilizing for the march. Arab, Muslim, South Asian, Korean, Philippino immigrant organizations are building for the demonstration as well. Youth, students, LGBT, antiwar and anti-racist groups and labor unions are also actively involved.

The October 16 demonstration was announced publicly two years ago by a pro-immigrant coalition led by Latino Movement USA & Hermandad Mexicana Nacional during a large immigrant rights rally in downtown LA. Since that time, activists have worked hard to build community support to make it a success.

The October 16 march will commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the massive anti-Proposition 187 demonstration in LA. That march was the largest protest by Latinos in the history of the United States. To commemorate that historic march is important.

The need for a mass march for immigrant rights is even more urgent today. Latino immigrants are terrorized by police raids at their jobs and in their neighborhoods. Arabs, Muslims and South Asians are targeted in FBI roundups and detained without

justification. Recent immigrants of all nationalities are under racist attack by law enforcement and constantly threatened withincarceration and deportation.

At this critical time, we must organize and fight back against racism, bigotry and all forms of oppression. We must elevate the level of struggle to win full rights for all immigrants, and especially for undocumented workers and their families.

All progressive individuals and organizations are invited to join the march and rally on October 16. A strong, united demonstration in downtown Los Angeles will prove the incredible strength and resolve of the movement for immigrant rights in the United States today.

The October 16 march is less than 1 week away. Tens of thousands of leaflets and posters have been distributed in LA alone. Get involved and make the demonstration a huge success!
