A Day Without Immigrants

It's May Day and we are here in beautiful San Francisco. The demonstrations today are promising to be among the largest in US history. We were just in LA for the Festival of Books and so many of the people we talked to are planning to participate and it looks likely that the "No School - No Work - No Shopping - No Selling," theme is going to have a huge impact. Check out this article in the Village Voice.

The event tonight at First Unitarian hopes to draw the connections among the proud tradition of labor struggles of May Day (to commemorate the struggles of workers internationally), the antiwar movement, and the new civil rights struggle for immigrant rights. Hopefully after today's actions, people will stop by to hear Cindy Sheehan, Anthony, and other special guests make the case for those connections and for an end to the occupation of Iraq.
