Vigil for Immigrant Rights (Owatonna) - June 25
CENTRO CAMPESINO INC.
FE ESPERANZA UNIĆN JUSTICIA

Enough! - No Tolerance for Racism - Ya Basta!
Centro Campesino invites our friends and allies and all those concern
about the injustices faced by millions of immigrants in this country, to
come and join us for a short vigil. This year is a critical year to get
comprehensive immigration reform moving in congress. We also continue to
face setbacks and barriers, now more than ever we need to send a message
of solidarity and unity.

Thousands of groups and organizations across the country are mobilizing
along with the business and labor community to push for the changes we
need. However, we need to remember that abuses and exploitation continue
to be a reality for many immigrants coming to this country. Arizona has
taken this abuse in such level that has not only institutionalized police
racial profiling but also racism as a whole.

This vigil is an effort for us to remember that we are working for
fundamental human rights that look to preserve and acknowledge the human
dignity and the right of every human to pursue happiness -free of
exploitation and persecution.

Come and join this Friday June 25th at 7:00 p.m. at the Owatonna Central
Park. Please bring a small white candle.

Continuing discussion of "Reform or Revolution," by Daniel De Leon A
provocative look at "working within the system" vs. working to create a
new system. Includes: the reason for the state; science and morality; the
demoralizatin of the workers by political charlatans - and more more.

[Fed up with the evil two-party corporate/capitalist scam and the utterly
worthless scheming greedy bastards at the "top"? Come hear alternatives.

Greetings from Minnesota Film Arts!

Join us at St. Anthony Main Movie Theatre for a week of dialogue on
Immigration Policy both at home and abroad.  If we are able to generate
enough interest in the films we would be able to hold Q&A sessions after
screening of the film, enabling local Human Rights Organizations to open
up a dialogue for us in the Midwest and raise awareness for these
important current issues.

9500 LIBERTY: Prince William County, Virginia becomes ground zero in
America's explosive battle over immigration policy when elected officials
adopt a law requiring police officers to question anyone they have
"probable cause" to suspect is an undocumented immigrant.

9500 Liberty reveals the startling vulnerability of a local government,
targeted by national anti-immigration networks using the Internet to
frighten and intimidate lawmakers and citizens. Alarmed by a climate of
fear and racial division, residents form a resistance using YouTube videos
and virtual town halls, setting up a real-life showdown in the seat of
county government.

The devastating social and economic impact of the "Immigration
Resolution" is felt in the lives of real people in homes and in local
businesses. But the ferocious fight to adopt and then reverse this policy
unfolds inside government chambers, on the streets, and on the Internet.
9500 Liberty provides a front row seat to all three battlegrounds.

 Rich men are wild boars,
 a Class of Mass Destruction,
 savaging the earth.

 Here they come, berserk,
 snorting, shitting, impaling
 us on their honed tusks.
