Politicians promoting “Immigration Reform” are trying to sell us the idea that limited rights for the “good immigrants” can be won in exchange for increased repression of all others.

Sábado 7 de Septiembre, 10:30 AM-5:00 PM en el Campus de la Universidad Northeastern de Illinois (NEIU).

El foro es gratis, abierto al público, será en inglés y español, y se ofrece cuidado de niños  

Los políticos que promueven la “Reforma Migratoria” quieren convencer a la gente de aceptar algunos derechos restringidos para solo unos pocos “inmigrantes buenos” a cambio del aumento a la represión de todos los demás. Acompáñanos en un foro para hablar sobre las luchas de base, como confrontar la opresión para evitar más fronteras sin tener que clasificar a la gente con los términos políticos de “merecedores “o “inmigrantes buenos” en contra de “no merecedores”, o “inmigrantes malos.”
