Down Under Veil

Marianna Leishman | Cronulla Beach, in Southern Sydney, wasn’t so tranquil in December 2005 when thousands of Anglo-Australians went on an anti-Muslim rampage, resulting in an unprecedented beach lockdown. A crowd of 5,000, organized by word of mouth and text messages, reportedly chanted slogans such as “wog-free zone,” “ethnic cleansing unit,” and “Lebs go home,” in reference to the estimated 250,000 Australians of Lebanese descent. more...  0 Comments

On verge of major protest, CIW reaches landmark accord with McD's

ATX IMC | Today at The Carter Center in Atlanta, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) and McDonald's announced a landmark agreement to work together to improve the wages and working conditions of the farmworkers who pick Florida tomatoes. After two years of escalating pressure by the CIW and its allies, McDonald's has agreed to all of the CIW's demands and more.

"Two years ago, our agreement with Yum Brands marked the first step toward a distant dream of ensuring human rights for workers in Florida’s fields," said Lucas Benitez of the CIW. "Today, with McDonald’s, we have taken another major step toward a world where we as farmworkers can enjoy a fair wage and humane working conditions in exchange for the hard and essential work we do every day."

HAVE U SEEN THIS MAN? CIA man wanted in Europe for 1st trial for rendition...

Angelo Frole | Robert Seldon Lady, the mastermind of the first rendition case to go to trial, in the PHOTO, is a former NYPD cop (1970s) and has visited NYC since fleeing Italy to avoid prosecution. He will go on trial, in absentia (since the Italian and U.S. rulers have not agreed to extradite him), on June 18, 2007, in Milan, Italy, in what might be the 007 trial of '07.

April 7 Coalition March Rally in Los Angeles Draws 75,000

AJLPP-New York | Amnesty Now! Full Rights for All Immigrants, Now!

With these resounding chants, more than 75,000 immigrants and immigrant rights advocates under the banner of the April 7 Coalition marched and rallied for full rights for all immigrants last Saturday, April 7, 2007, in Los Angeles.

Unlike the disparate and fewer numbers of mobilized activities last March 25, 2007, the April 7 Coalition march for full rights for all immigrants became one of the largest to be held in Los Angeles after May 1, 2006. This brings a new momentum for the immigrant rights movement in California. The conservative L.A Times estimated the crowd as 10,000 while the Latino Channel 34 estimate of the crowd was 50,000.

"Today's rally is really a response to all those who have been criticizing the immigrant rights movement and declared it dead," said Juan Jose Gutierrez, a coordinator with Latino Movement USA. "Most people are hard-working, taxpaying individuals," he said. "We need to stop polarizing."

“We have gained the momentum that was lost due to the betrayal of the traditional politicians and posturing organizations who now advocate for a modified guest workers program under the guise of legalization last year. This time, tens of thousands of people, not the pitiful hundreds around the federal building and the tame crowds at the L.A Sports Area with government officials in tow, joined the march that spilled into both the sidewalks of Broadway and Olympic streets,” expressed Arturo P. Garcia, People’s CORE Immigrant Rights Program Coordinator more...  0 Comments
