Join TSJ -- Immigrant Rights and Worker Rights May 1st!

April 29, 2011 0 comments

TSJ is mobilizing for the May 1 Immigrant and Worker Rights march.
Our banner and signs will link the attack on immigrants with attacks on
teachers, teacher unions, and public sector workers. This is a critical
time to connect these issues-to bring these movements together and resist blaming immigrants, people of color, and teachers and other workers for the crisis created by Wall St.

PLEASE join the TSJ contingent and bring your students!  Meet under the
TSJ banner in Union Park [Ashland Ave. and Lake St.] at 1:45. The rally starts at 2:00. We will then all march to Pilsen (Plaza Tenochtitlan, 18th and Blue Island), where another rally will start at 4PM.
