Immigrant Justice

So April 10th has come and gone, and there's still a lot of passion and excitement, evident by the mass turnout. Numbers like 500,000 in LA (keeping in mind that these are police estimates, so multiply by 2 or 3 for actual figures) are pretty amazing, it's the 500,000 in DALLAS that turns my head.

You may now be asking, what next?

May 1st is International Workers' Day. A day to celebrate the laborers, the janitors, the assembly-line workers, mechanics, pilots, bus drivers, nurses, etc. of America. It's a day to celebrate immigrant labor. There's a nationwide boycott being planned for the day if that strikes your fancy.
