May 1st: All the corners of Florida march!
Here is what's happening in Florida:
May 1, 2007 Several Florida communities will hold events on May 1st to commemorate the immigrant justice mobilizations which took place last Spring establishing a new record as the largest immigrant justice mobilization in our nation's history. This year's events will oppose the harsh and unworkable White House proposal and join together to demand a comprehensive and humane reform that respects civil rights, reunites families, protects workers, and offers legalization and a path to citizenship for undocumented and future immigrants to the US.
