May 1 - "El Gran Paro Americano 2006" "The Great American Boycott 2006"
Released 01 April 2006  By granmarcha2006@hotmail.com

"El Gran Paro Americano 2006"
"The Great American Boycott 2006"

May 1st, 2006, is:
"Un dia sin immigrante" "A day without an immigrant"

Immigrants contribute 7 billion in social security per year.
they earn 240 billion, report 90 billion, and only are
reimbursed 5 billion, "where are the 85 billion?" They also
contribute to the U.S. economy 25 billion more than they
receive in healthcare, etc., etc., etc. According to the
anti-immigrant politicians and hatemongers, "immigrants are
a drain on society." If this is true, then during the day on
May 1st the stock market will surge, and the economy will
boom. If not, we prove them wrong once and for all. We know
what will happen!

Therefore, the "March 25th Coalition against HR4437 in Los
Angeles," the organizers of the mega march of almost 2
million on March 25th, has called for an emergency
videoconferenced meeting on April 8th between Los Angeles and
any city that wishes to join the efforts toward "El Gran Paro
Americano 2006." The following meeting will take place in
Chicago on April 22nd, we ask that all that wish to
participate and be a part of a national effort on May 1st and
beyond, to attend by finding facilities in your areas that
can hold the meeting, technologically.

The points of unity are:
No Work, No School, No Sales, and No Buying, and also to have
rallies around symbols of economic trade in your areas (stock
exchanges, anti-immigrant corporations, etc.).

Cities across the United States have marched during the week,
therefore, in essence observing a regional boycott, which is
only felt regionally. The March 25th Coalition against
HR4437, calls for these regions to develop a national network
that will "connect the dots." We believe with numbers we
have power, the power currently necessary to keep the
pressure on the White House to propose provisions that are
just and fair for all immigrants.

We will settle for nothing less than full amnesty and dignity
for the millions of undocumented workers presently in the
U.S. We believe that increased enforcement is a step in the
wrong direction and will only serve to facilitate more
tragedies along the Mexican-U.S. border in terms of deaths
and family separation.

More details to come... Keep your eye on www.nohr4437.org,
and or write to granmarcha2006@hotmail.com, and any tax
deductible donations should be made to La Hermandand
Mexicana, 7915 Van Nuys Blvd. Panorama City, CA 91402.

Please organize your areas, and join this monumental event
that will put our mark on U.S. history.
