Towards a World Without Borders, where No One is "Illegal".
Convergences in San Francisco:
8:30am - Montgomery & Market (Montgomery BART)
11:00am - Embarcadero (Embarcadero BART)
3:00pm - San Francisco Civic Center (Civic Center BART)
5:00pm - Federal Building (450 Golden Gate)
Come prepared with pots and spoons to bang together (CACEROLAZO),
energy and creativity to drown out business in San Francisco! Wear
white and look for the flags with a pot and spoon on them.
We Demand:

* Full, unconditional and immediate "amnesty" for all immigrants.
* Free movement for all people.
* Freedom for all ICE detainees and the abolition of detention centers.
* De-militarization of the US-Mexico border.
* The repeal of NAFTA and all neoliberal trade agreements which create economic conditions leading to the displacement of people.

We Pledge:

* Active resistance until we are all free to move!
* Active resistance against all attacks on immigrants, deportations
and detentions!

We Believe:

The increasing militarization along the US-Mexico border -- by now a veritable war zone -- serves as a brutal reminder that all borders operate as integral and deliberate parts of exploitative economic systems,
inseparable from capitalism and neoliberal globalization. The US-Mexico border, and all other borders between nation-states and governments, are reproduced in our minds and throughout society, serving to enforce and
legitimize the boundaries, disparities, and exploitative relationships between people. The demand for full amnesty and free movement of people, therefore, aims at justice for immigrants at the same time as it aspires
to a world free from all such destructive divisions. More information on our analysis is available here.

To get more involved:

More information and planning opportunities will be available at an open consulta, to be held April 23, 6:00pm at a location to be announced. Continue to check maydayinthebay.dyndns.org for more details!
Who we are

"Mayday in the Bay" is an informal grouping of organizers and
activists that has come together in the San Francisco Bay Area. We
have joined forces to promote and support the callout for a General
Strike on May 1st in defense of immigrant rights which was issued
out of Los Angeles by the "March 25th Coalition against HR4437".

The points of unity for this action are: No Work, No School, No
Sales, and No Buying, and also to have rallies around local symbols
of economic trade (stock exchanges, anti-immigrant corporations,
etc.). "Mayday in the Bay" fully endorses the points of unity, and has
organized a local response to this callout in keeping with the
organizing principles and political analysis detailed in the People's
Global Action (PGA*) Hallmarks.

It is our intention to publicize and maximize participation in the
general strike in a way that enhances the economic consequences of
the strike and makes it as visible as possible. To this end, we have
decided to organize a series of convergences throughout the day,
from which spontaneous CACEROLAZO** marches can occur. For
specifics, please see the callout.

[**Cacerolazo is the name of a popular form of protest that consists
in a group of people creating noise by banging pots, pans and other
utensils in order to call for attention.]
