WHY: 99% united for an economy that won’t divide us: Immigrants’ Rights are Workers’ Rights!
WHEN: Saturday, December 17 | 10 am Rally & 11 am March
WHERE: South Park Blocks between SW Salmon and Main
WHO: Immigrants and Allies including these sponsoring organizations: Occupy Portland (endorsed at Wed, 11/30/11 GA), PCASC, AFSC, Voz, WFWA, NWIYA, Causa, ISO, Sisters of the Road, Portland Rising Tide, Oregon Tradeswomen, CSAM, Enlace, May Day Coalition, ORFTC, ONSM, PIRC, We Are Oregon, and many more.

Coinciding with the International Day of the Migrant, immigrants and allies will take to the streets in a permitted, family-friendly rally and march. This will be an opportunity to join with the Occupy movement, and send a strong message against the racist laws, policies and institutions that are systematically targeting immigrant communities, such as Secure Communities, E-verify, wage theft, free trade agreements and increased detentions and deportations.
