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
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
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.
