We will never forget October 2!

On the 43rd anniversary of the Tlatelolco massacre in Mexico, join Mexican, immigrant rights and progressive activists in demanding:

NO TO STATE SPONSORED VIOLENCE IN MEXICO!

SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO!

JUSTICE FOR THE SME UNION & ALL ACTIVISTS

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2 12:00 NOON

IN FRONT OF THE MEXICAN CONSULATE

27 East. 39th St. – Between Park & Madison, Manhattan
Train F or M to 42nd St.

On October 2, 1968 hundreds of students, workers, campesinos and others were massacred in Mexico City. The innocent people who died at the hands of the Mexican military never received justice.

Today the violence continues as state sponsored violence fueled by the lucrative drug industry continues with impunity. Over 50,000 people have been killed in Mexico over the last few years. Progressive activists are targeted, arrested, beaten and killed. Fair elections are a dream. Union activists and leaders are targeted and repressed for defending workers rights. Despite having stolen the election and doing nothing to stop the violence, current Mexican President, Felipe Calderon receives the complete backing of the Obama administration, including millions of dollars used to repress the Mexican people.

Every year tens of thousands of Mexicans are forced to leave Mexico and travel to the U.S. to look for work. The U.S. government, despite passing laws like NAFTA which force migration, is carrying out a vicious racist anti-immigrant campaign.

Join us on Sunday, October 2 to say no to state sponsored violence in Mexico

STOP THE DEPORTATIONS OF IMMIGRANT WORKERS

WE WILL NEVER FORGET OCTOBER 2!

Demand justice for hotel worker & IMF reparations for Guinea and everywhere!

The whole world now knows how incredibly sexist and woman-hating the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK), is. After charges of raping and attacking a hotel worker, law enforcement agents yanked him off a plane on his way back home to France. The vicious incident took place on May 14 at the Sofitel Hotel in New York. Read the rest of this entry »
