Day 2006 - We Have Made History!
Ten Millions Across
the Country Take to the Streets to Demand Immigrant Rights!
Today was one of the
most important days in U.S. history: ten millions of immigrants,
activists and allies in over 200 cities from across the
country chose to skip work, school, and the normal daily
routine to participate in "A Day Without Immigrants."
We held a national boycott, general strikes, rallies and
symbolic actions in order to demand basic rights for all
immigrants, and to build a new multi-ethnic united civil
rights movement for the 21st century!
