(en) US, A List of Actions organized by the May Day Boston Collective

Date Sat, 29 Apr 2006 14:42:16 +0300


Calling all Anarchists: Celebrate 120 years of radical labor resistance! This year,
in the spirit of Anarchist and immigrant tradition, come celebrate May Day the
old fashion way! Join the Great American Boycott of 2006, and walk
off your jobs and schools for a general strike! Monday, please come
out participate in these Anarchist-organized and sponsored events:
Anarchist Preparations for May Day: Please join us starting at 11am, at 45 mount
Auburn St, Harvard Square, to make tombstones, signs, banners, arts and crafts,
flyers, pamphlets etc for the day's events. Bring paint, poster-board, string,
cardboard, paper, markets, chalk and relevant information.
We will from there join the march from Harvard Square to Boston Commons.

Join Centro Presente in their Familias Unidas (Keep our Families
Together) campaign, at their headquarters
Centro Presente will open their headquarters on May 1st at noon.
There will be several activities in preparation for Centro's Keep
our Families Together campaign and the May 8th public hearing at
Cambridge City Hall, when they will ask the City of Cambridge to
renew its commitment as a sanctuary city for all immigrants. One
activity will be gathering signatures for our petition in public areas
(Central sq, Harvard sq, etc); others will involve making signs and
phone calls. All physical solidarity welcome!
Centro Presente is located at: 54 Essex Street Cambridge, MA 02139
We will be directing people there from 45 Mount Auburn St.

campaign:

Call for an Anarchist and Antiauthoritarian Information Blocs to
accompany the immigrant rights marches:
There are at least two marches this May Day. As Anarchists, it is
important that we, along these marches, remind people about the
history of May Day in the United States. Please bring signs, banners,
pamphlets, flags, flyers, songs, etc about the Haymarket Martyrs
and the 8hour movement. Please do not block up, as it may bring
unnecessary police attention to the march and endanger many
immigrants.
Also, please bring information and make signs about your
family's history. To remind people that, unless we are natives,
we all immigrated to this country, we should make signs that tell our
family history, when and how out families came here, about the
exploitation and oppression they faced about the time, and why it is
the same repression that immigrants today face. We need to get the
point across to “citizens” that they, too, come from a
heritage of immigration, documented or not.
We will prepare for the infobloc at 11am, 45 Mount Auburn st.,
Cambridge Ma. Hopefully, we will be able to send info blocs along to
both marches.

March from Harvard Square at 1pm to Boston Common
There will be joining striking workers and students walking out of
schools as they gather in Harvard Square at 1pm. From there we will
marc down Mass Ave, and to the Boston Commons, where the May

Anarchists and Antiauthoritarians of Boston and Beyond! At 4:30,
Join us as we stand in solidarity with the workers, striking against
Unicco in Florida!
Unicco is responsible for the recent deaths of 3 of its workers, and is
also trying to kill the workers' unions and prevent others from
being born. To morn the death of the three workers, as well as the
unions and various workers' rights, we will be holding a funeral
procession on May Day, the 1st of May, at 4:30 at the Unicco
Northeast Regional Headquarters, 18 Tremont Street. This funeral
procession will take place on the sidewalk in front of the office, and
will double as a picket line in solidarity with the strike in Florida.
Please wear black to morn these deaths, and bring signs and banners
and flags to show your solidarity and chalk to leave messages.
At 11am, at 45 mount Auburn St, Harvard Square, we will make
tombstones, signs, banners, arts and crafts, flyers etc for the funeral.
All are invited to help! Unicco headquarters is located at:
