Immigrant Rights March: Minnesota is NOT Arizona!

Exciting News,

We have decided to change the march route and end point for tomorrow, to march to the Republican State Convention at the convention center downtown, before ending in Loring Park for a united rally.

We hope you will join us for the May 1 march for immigrant and workers rights tomorrow starting at 2:00 pm at Martin Luther King Park, 41st and Nicollet Ave S.

Wednesday both Republican contenders for governor, Tom Emmer and Marty Seifert, announced their support for the new racist Arizona law, SB 1070. We will send them a strong message: Minnesota is not Arizona! We need a just reform with legalization and equal rights for all!

WHEN: Saturday, May 1, 2010

TIME: 2:00pm

STARTING POINT: Martin Luther King Park (41st and Nicollet Ave. S)

UNITE WITH OTHER MARCHERS: 4:00pm Minneapolis Convention Center (1st and Grant)

RALLY: 4:30pm Loring Park (Not Stewart Field!)

Marches leaving from 3 starting points are expected to number in the thousands, and will converge as one in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday.

The marches will meet outside the Republican State Convention at the convention center downtown for a brief stop, before marching united to Loring Park.

Join our coalition of more than 40 groups to demand real legalization for all, workers rights, driver’s licenses, and equal rights for all, and an end to immigration raids, deportations, and discrimination!
