Call Rob and Jason to Demand Justice for Alyssa, Sick Day Negotiations

The Jimmy John’s Workers Union is in an ongoing struggle to get paid sick days and justice at work. Last Thursday the owner, Rob Mulligan sat down to talk with workers and told them that workers should not be disciplined for calling in sick. The NEXT day newly public union member Alyssa Rodewald was fired for calling in sick b/c she supposedly wasn’t sick. She was sick.

Call Rob now: 612-817-9016

And Jason too, the district ma…nager who fired Alyssa: (612) 636-1454

Tell them it is time to negotiate on paid sick days and to give Alyssa her job back. It is disgusting to fire people for calling in sick and it is time to ensure that this never happens again. Get in touch with the union to negotiate by this Sunday at 2pm or we will plaster the town with sick day posters.

Focus calls between 11-2pm if possible but call anytime 2day!

Call now!

Also, if you want to help postering please come to 1916 15th Ave S this Sunday at 4:30pm to help us put up thousands of posters all around Minneapolis and St. Louis Park.

Thanks!

The Jimmy John’s Workers Union

March 10 Mobilization for Justice Beyond Borders – Liberation Square and march

8 de Marzo 2011

Alistándose para la Movilización del pueblo por la Justicia en Marzo 10

Solo dos días más para la marcha del 10 de marzo, parque Union 12PM

Movilización 10 de Marzo para la Justicia sin Fronteras: Plaza de Liberación y Marcha

¡Luchando por la Justicia, dignidad e igualdad para todos!

Las recientes luchas por liberación en Túnez y Egipto han inflamado un espíritu combativo por todo el mundo. En los EEUU, la lucha en Wisconsin señala un nuevo comienzo. Trabajadores del sector público, la juventud, organizadores contra la guerra y activistas pro-derechos de los deshabilitados se están uniendo para confrontar al sistema multifacético de opresión que construye barreras y fronteras entre las comunidades oprimidas para mantenernos divididos. Es tiempo de retar las políticas que sólo buscan chivos expiatorios para esconder la verdadera causa de la actual crisis social, política y económica. Como personas que estamos comprometidos a luchar por justicia migratoria, reconocemos que ya no podemos esperar que políticos u organizaciones “liberales” actúen para hacer un cambio. Necesitamos una nueva visión y herramientas concretas para llevar a cabo nuestra lucha.
El llamado a Plaza de Liberación, es un llamado para “cruzar fronteras” entre luchas, entre comunidades divididas y denominaciones políticas forzadas. Por un sistema de leyes que se apilan en nuestra contra, nos están forzando a todos a ser indocumentados- desde comunidades internamente desplazadas que enfrentan encarcelamiento masivo, a activistas detractores criminalizados, hasta soldados disidentes. La lucha no puede ser sólo una lucha por “papeles”. Es una lucha contra un sistema que ilegitimita más y más gente, ¡¡¡¡¡es una lucha por justicia más allá de las fronteras!!!!!

Entendemos que los inmigrantes son parte de un sistema mundial que oprime a las diferentes comunidades en diferentes niveles, y que todos los que son oprimidos sistemáticamente en un sentido son indocumentados“, dijo Carmela García, joven organizadora del evento 10 de marzo.

¡¡Únase a nosotros en la Plaza de Liberación!! Será una reunión comunitaria donde se hablará de las conexiones entre los derechos de migrantes, la militarización y el sistema global económico.

También estaremos haciendo una marcha de acción a Boeing, uno de los mayores contratistas militares que han hecho enormes ganancias de la militarización de la frontera. Es su insaciable hambre por ganancias, corporaciones como Boeing han sido unos de los mayores proponentes del creciente odio anti-inmigrante en el país, y agrandado las guerras externas- ya que sus márgenes de ganancia dependen de alimentar la máquina de guerra y de convertir a más y más gente en “ilegales”. Confrontaremos a Boeing con nuestro mensaje: ¡ustedes son culpables de crímenes contra nuestra humanidad!

Para obtener información detallada y el Itinerario completo de los eventos que se llevaran a cabo el 10 de marzo, Visítenos en línea: http://moratoriumondeportations.org/


***Ultimas reuniones***

El 8 & 9 de Marzo, 7pm en Biblioteca Popular, 1921 S. BlueIsland Ave. Pilsen.

Estaremos organizando los últimos detalles de la marcha y de la plaza de liberación. También estaremos haciendo las ultimas pancartas, posters, mantas, y de mas! Todos son bienvenidos……ningún inmigrante se queda atrás en la lucha por la justicia. ¡O todos coludos o todos rabones! ¡Nada de que yo sí y tu no!

Getting Ready for March 10th Mobilization for Immigrant Justice!

2 days left for M10 2011, are you ready? Union Park 12noon

March 10 Mobilization for Justice Beyond Borders – Liberation Square and march

Fighting for Justice, dignity and equality for All!

The recent struggles for liberation in Tunisia and Egypt have ignited a combatant spirit all over the world. In the US, the struggle in Wisconsin is a new beginning. Public sector workers, youth, anti-war organizations and disability activists are uniting to address the multifaceted system of oppression that constructs borders between oppressed communities, keeping us divided. It is time to challenge the politics of scapegoating that conceals the root causes of the current social, political and economic crisis. As people committed to fighting for immigrant justice, we recognize we can no longer look to politicians and their liberal organizations for real change. We need a new vision and new concrete tools for struggle.

The ongoing criminalization of immigrants is part of a global economic system that finds profit in the incarceration, displacement, and repression of millions across the globe. Despite the solidarity that has blossomed among people who are recognized as citizens and those labeled undocumented, citizenship continues to be one of the main mechanisms for rendering people exploitable. It has been wielded as a ruthless tool for dividing us, forcing us to compete against each other in a global race to the bottom. Liberation Square is a call to “cross borders” between struggles, between divided communities and between forced political identities. Because in a system of laws that are stacked against us, we are all being made undocumented – from communities that are internally displaced to communities facing mass incarceration, from criminalized dissenters to AWOL soldiers. The struggle cannot be merely a fight for “papers”. It is a fight against a system that makes more and more people illegitimate: it is a fight for justice beyond all borders !!!

Join us at Liberation Square!! This is a community gathering and speak-out on the connections between immigrant rights, militarization and the global economic system. We will also march for an action at Boeing, one of the largest military contractors who has also made enormous profits from border militarization. In their never-ending hunger for profits, corporations like Boeing have been a major driving force behind increasing anti-immigrant hatred at home, and increasing wars abroad – because their profit margins depend on fueling the war machine and on making more and more people “illegal”. We will confront Boeing with our message: you are guilty of crimes against our humanity!

Last Open Planning Meetings will be held on: March 8th and 9th at 7PM at Biblioteca Popular, 1921 S. BlueIsland in Pilsen. There will be sign and banner making at the meetings! Come and JOIN US!
