Gran Marcha 2006

by Jesse Díaz Saturday, Mar. 04, 2006 at 5:18 PM

LA Coalition to Stage Mass Protest on March 25, 2006 Against HR4437 Sensenbrenner Immigration Bill in Downtown Los Angeles and support a comprehensive immigration reform provision that leads to permanent residency and no more border fences and or heightened border security


On Thursday March 2, 2006 the Southern California based coalition “March 25 Coalition Against HR4437” held a press conference to announce a major mass mobilization against the passage of the Sensenbrenner Bill to be held in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday March 25, 2006. The march expected to be the largest in the country to date will also demand an integral, comprehensive and family oriented immigration reform that will lead to the legalization and eventual citizenship for the 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country.

The Coalition will call on all immigrants and all Californians of all colors and creeds, labor, clergy, community and political organizations, students and youth to protest, make their voices heard and galvanize the movement for humane immigration reform all the way to Washington DC. The US Senate is expected to begin debate on the Senate floor on March 27.

The Coalition will publicly call on and invite Mayor Antonio Villaraigoza, LA Council President Eric Garcetti, Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, and Senators Gil Cedillo and Gloria Romero to join and repudiate the “wall of shame” and the criminalization of immigrants as felons proposed in the House approved “Border Protection and Antiterrorist and Illegal Immigration Control Act” on Dec. 15, 2005. The coalition leaders will also make a special call to all the members of the wide and popular Spanish language media and progressive media to assist them in making MARCH 25 the largest demonstration in support of immigrant workers and their families in recent history.
