Solidarity Across Borders -- a Montreal-based network engaged in the
struggle for justice and dignity of immigrants and refugees -- will be part
of another National STATUS FOR ALL Day of Action this coming Saturday, May
5, 2007.

We will be marching along Jean-Talon Boulevard, both east and west, as part
of a community parade. Our demonstration will end with a festival and picnic
in the heart of Parc Extension.

We march for the regularization of all migrants -- meaning STATUS FOR ALL --
and against deportations, detentions and security certificates. We assert
that immigrant rights mean worker rights, as we commemorate the immigrant
worker traditions of Mayday.

Our demonstrations also take place to coincide with Mayday immigrant rights
demonstrations by our allies in the United States, to whom we offer our
solidarity and support. We also endorse other STATUS FOR ALL demonstrations
in Toronto (May 5), Vancouver (May 1) and elsewhere in Canada. Info

The May 5 STATUS FOR ALL National Day of Action will culminate a full week
of Mayday activities organized or supported by Solidarity Across Borders.

We will have active groups working on outreach, logistics and the picnic. If
you can help with any of these efforts -- art and theatre, mobilizing,
outreach, postering, flyering, translation, etc -- please get in touch. We
need your support.
