First They Come to the "Illegals"....
The worsen situations of U.S. immigrant rights
"Injury To One Is Injury to All!"

That's no secrets that domestically, "War Against terror" is in fact oppressions against immigrant communities. However, the government and the society obviously doesn't really want to get rid of all undocumented workers, because it would be the simplest thing in the world to find them. Everyone knows where undocumented workers work. No, we want them here…as long as they don't ask for a living wage and thereby threaten our ongoing massive accumulation of wealth.

It's no secret: Pick any commercial building in downtown Los Angeles or New York Garment districts, and at least a third or even half the workers in the building will be undocumented. It's also common knowledge that most major restaurants are staffed with undocumented immigrants, with police or immigrant agents eating in such restaurants everyday. Who harvests the fruits and vegetables we eat daily at California, Texas or Florida? College kids? Or immigrants we don't even care their names?

With the recent U.S. passage of the CLEAR Act, the possible passing of Immigrant "Reform" bill next year, the racist Minutemen at U.S.-Mexico border and California Governors recent veto against Immigrant Driver License Bill, the life of immigrant communities will not getting better, but will be worse. All we can do is hope for the best and bite our teeth to live through it.

It's the time anti-globalization, peace and social justice activists need to spend their time focusing the community struggles where we lives, join us to support immigrant workers solidarity campaigns!

2) 11/14 New York: Demand Immigrant Vote!
More than 1.3 million New Yorkers cannot vote, largely communities of color

There are more than 1.3 MILLION New Yorkers of voting age who can’t participate in our local democracy… With one in five New Yorkers ineligible to vote because they are not citizens, civic participation in the city is not what it could be. Support the E X P A N S I O N of voting rights to tax-paying non-citizen immigrants!!!

These city residents are subject to all the laws that citizens must observe. They contribute in countless ways to the economic vitality and
social and cultural life of this city that serves as the unofficial capital of the world. According to the Urban Institute, immigrants pay .2
billion in taxes, or 15.5% of the state's tax income.

Nevertheless, because of their citizenship status, these new New Yorkers are not allowed to participate in choosing the municipal representatives who make the policies that affect their lives daily. Excluding such a significant portion of the city's population from political participation undermines the health of our democracy and discourages incipient Americans from taking a stake in the issues that affect their communities.

Join the New York Coalition to Expand Voting Rights -- a coalition of 57 member organizations representing hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers -- for a Press Conference and City Council Hearings on the Voting Rights Restoration Act (Intro. 628)

Date: Monday, November 14th
Press Conference: 9:30AM on the steps of City Hall
Hearings: 10:00AM - 1:00PM at 250 Broadway (across from City Hall), 14th
Floor Hearings Room
Directions by Train: 1/2/3/9/A/C/J/M/Z to Chambers Street, N/R to City
Hall, or 4/5/6 to Brooklyn Bridge

No taxation without representation.Participation = Power
