Angeles, and  others

Why Wells Fargo?
Wells Fargo Bank houses and profits from  racist, terrorist Sheriff Joe 
Arpaio in Arizona 
Wells Fargo profits from the  sweat of immigrant labor making tons of money 
from remittances 
The Wall  Street Bail Out will be stolen from the people. Wells Fargo will 
profit from  that theft 

In May of this year and then again in August, the  Department of Homeland 
Security through the hated ICE (Immigration & Customs  Enforcement) carried out 
some of the biggest anti-worker raids in U.S. history. 
 
These raids are made against workers at the very same time that the  
super-rich get saved on Wall Street! 

The raids in the immigrant community are calculated to not only terrorize  
immigrant workers but they are meant to break unions, divide working people and  
send a message to us all: don’t fight back or else.

The economy is reeling from rising unemployment, housing foreclosures,  price 
hikes—and the crisis on Wall Street is affecting every one but the  
super-rich. Yet it was them that made the crisis in the first place, not the  people! 
At the same time, fear mongering such as that by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in  Phoenix 
occurs which is meant to divert us from the real enemy. As one activist  put 
it “Arizona has become for the immigrant rights movement what Mississippi  was 
for the Black Civil Rights movement.”

This is a time to come together. 

We call on people from every  walk of life, from every nationality, black, 
Latin@, Asian, Arab, Native, and  white, U.S. or foreign born, documented or 
undocumented, in a union or  unorganized to come out on October 12.

October 12 is part of a  national day of action in over 30 cities. This day 
is known in the Latino  community as Dia de la Raza and is a day for Indigenous 
People as a counter to  the racist Christopher Columbus day, which is a day 
of conquest and disaster for  the Americas. 
Join us on October 12 to tell the Bush administration  and all the 
presidential candidates: We demand:

Bail out the  people, not the Banks! 
Immediate Legalization for undocumented workers!  
Moratorium on the ICE raids! 
Moratorium home foreclosures! 
Money for  hurricane victims not for war in Iraq! 
No to ICE & police brutality.  Justice for Sean Bell & all victims of 
brutality! 
Political asylum for  Victor Toro! 
Union jobs at union wages for all! 
Solidarity not racism!  
No to Lou Dobbs & all hate-mongers! 

Event initiated by the  May 1st Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights.
