For May Day and Beyond: White People Step up for Immigrant Rights!
From a May 2006 letter;
- In the past month, five million people, mostly immigrants of color, have mobilized for justice and are making history, flooding the streets in unprecedented numbers. Meanwhile, the most visible participation by white people is coming from the racist and right wing leaders who are defining and dominating the debate in the Federal government and in the news, radio and opinion pages. Where are the voices of anti-racist white people in this crucial moment, when the worst anti-immigrant legislation in decades is still poised to drop?
- We, white people who believe in justice and ending racism, have a responsibility and a historic opportunity to stand with immigrant communities and unite behind their demands. As white people, most of us with U.S. citizenship, we call out to our white communities to take to the streets for immigrant rights. We must demonstrate that the rightwing racists, from the Minutemen to in the Congress, do not represent us!
- If you agree with these principles, we invite you to sign this letter and make your signature a commitment to putting them into action in your work and life.
- In struggle,

Honoring the life and work of John Ross
Honoring the life and work of John Ross at Cafe la Boheme San Francisco, on the fifth anniversary of his death. He wanted "Never learned to be a prisoner," to be etched on his grave. Then, in a characteristic twist, his will expressed his desire to be cremated and have his friends spread his ashes from the window a moving #14 Mission St. bus. As a first person witness/participant, I can attest this — with Nancy Charraga Corlay, Jeff Conant, Laboheme Awad, John Avalos, Phil Hutchings, Fernando Marti, Tony Ryan and Carolina Dutton.
