By Chance Zombor

Milwaukee, WI – On May 1, tens of thousands of people will converge here to march for immigrants’ and workers’ rights. Demonstrators will say “no” to an anti-immigrant SB1070 copycat bill [SB1070 is the Arizona law that tells law enforcement to routinely check papers of ‘suspected illegal immigrants’] in Wisconsin and “yes” to in-state tuition for undocumented Wisconsin students. The will stand against attacks on education, healthcare and collective bargaining rights.

Voces de la Frontera and the AFL-CIO will rally, along with other unions, community organizations, student/youth groups, and supporters. The rally will begin at 5th and Washington at 1:30 followed by a march to Veterans Park. Keynote speakers will include Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO.
