On May Day, it is estimated that millions of immigrants and allies will participate in “The Great May 1st Boycott.” Protesters will stay home from school, avoid work, and cease engaging in commerce in order to demand amnesty for the nearly 12 million illegal immigrants in the US.
Juan Jose Gutierrez, national coordinator for Latino Movement USA, is one of the lead organizers of Monday’s planned boycott.
ANSWER, a coalition civil rights groups says, “Let’s show the government, corporations and racist politicians that a powerful, united people’s movement has the power to win civil rights, workers’ rights and make history. . . . No business as usual on May 1!”

Ready or not–the necessity of a balanced immigration policy will be accelerated by this protest.
