No, say it ain't so - was it really so that the Democratic National Convention(DNC) had the chutzpa to convene, of all days, on Labor Day, in a nonunion convention hall, in a right to work state? Well, it's true! So, there's all the more reason to join and build bridges with the worker advocates that converged in Charlotte last week. We bring you on the ground coverage with southern worker coalitions organizing public and private sector workers for labor rights in their Southern Workers Assembly; and other activists from across the country who converged on Wall Street South (the second largest concentration of finance capital in the U.S., after N.Y.C.).
Undocumented Immigrants' Freedom Bus Ride!
Undocumented immigrants taking a page from the civil rights movement on a bus rode for justice from Arizona to Charlotte, N.C. to the Democratic National Convention. Across the states they challenged the champions of prejudice by their voices, and with actions against discrimination, harassment, and deportation. They are ready to move the country forward and will demanded that the Democratic Party match their courage by stopping the arrests and deportations and enacting comprehensive immigration reform.
