Arizona- National protest


The Mexican American Political Association (MAPA) and the Hermandad Mexicana Latinoamericana join the call made by the National Day Labor Organizing Network (NDLON), Puente, and Tonatierra, and the National Latino Congreso to converge and march on the capitol of Arizona in Phoenix on May 29th to demand the repeal of SB1070. We agree with NDLON, Tonatierra, and the Coalicion de Derechos Humanos, the main organizations organizing and coordinating the resistance in Arizona, that we cannot stop until the law is repealed. There are many ways to contribute to the fight. If you cannot join the bus caravan to Arizona for the May 29th march and rally, look up the websites of NDLON, Tonatierra, and Coalicion de Derechos Humanos and make a monetary contribution to their efforts. These are organizations that are on the ground and have been in Arizona for a good number of years. They are leading the people on the ground. They are giving backbone to the good legislators and other political leaders who have spoken out against SB1070.
