Our friends at Centro Presente, the Boston May Day Committee, and many others are taking action to oppose the federal imposition of the anti-immigrant and racist “Secure” Communities program on Massachusetts — despite the express opposition of most communities, the Boston mayor and the governor!
More information, from boston.com. And – see this blog post from the Mass ACLU.
When: Friday, May 11th at t 11:00 a.m.
Where: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
John F. Kennedy Federal Building
Government Center, Room E-160
Boston, MA 02203.
Say NO! to S-Comm in Massachusetts! *
*For the reunification of immigrant families!*
*Not more criminalization of immigrant families!*
From Ocupemos el Barrio:
Manifestacion encontra de las comunidades segura
At 4pm, join us for another rally:
Justice for Janitors: Union Busting is Disgusting!
Where: 31 St. James St (Arlington St. T station)
Why: this union of janitors is being unilaterally fired from their jobs, to be replaced by an irresponsible private contractor that pays low wages and little to no benefits. Last time we came out 50 people strong, and protested alongside SEIU 615 (and giant puppets!) — join us for what’s next!!
