Pull Together for Immigrant Rights

Rally for immigrant rights

Dallas activists drew together to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and to demand justice for immigrant workers. They rallied at City Hall on January 24. A long list of speakers represented the many and varied leaderships of different organizations from the metroplex.

They were not focused solely on their own issue, but spoke about Dr King and his many accomplishments. A good many of them signed petitions to demand an end to the U.S. economic crisis for workers.

The League of United Latin American Citizens seemed to have the largest group there. A dozen or so teenagers identified themselves as LULAC youth. But the aim was clear: the immigrant rights groups intend to coalition to place their demands strongly before the American people.

Communists recognize that the struggle for unity is central, and that racism is one of the chief impediments.
