How you can help build the May 1, 2012 march in Minneapolis

March in Minneapolis for immigrants & workers on 126th Anniversary of International Worker’s Day

Tuesday, May 1, 2012 – March for Immigrant & Workers Rights in Minneapolis!

Gather at 3:30pm at Lake Street & Nicollet Ave. S., Minneapolis

May 1st is coming! We need to build the spirit of unity and solidarity to stop the attacks coming down from the politicians against immigrants, workers, unions, women, LGBTQ people, and more. Join us to build a united movement on May 1, 2012!

This year is the 126th anniversary of International Workers Day on May 1st. We’re marking the occasion by having a big march of unions, workers, immigrants, students, community groups and religious groups all joining together to stand up for immigrant & workers rights

On Tuesday, May 1 at 3:30pm we’ll march together starting at Lake Street & Nicollet Ave. in Minneapolis. We need you to help us make it a success. We’re building a big coalition to demand justice for workers, unions and immigrants. We’re all under serious attack by the politicians in Washington and here in Minnesota. We can only win if we unite in solidarity. We’re demanding justice for workers and unions, and legalization & full equality for immigrants and all workers.

There are many unions, immigrant rights, religious, student and community organizations that have already endorsed the march. Get involved and get your organization to join the movement!
