Solidarity Across Borders -- a Montreal-based network engaged in the struggle for justice and dignity of immigrants and refugees -- will be part of another National STATUS FOR ALL Day of Action this coming Saturday, May 5, 2007.

We will be marching along Jean-Talon Boulevard, both east and west, as part of a community parade. Our demonstration will end with a festival and picnic in the heart of Parc Extension.

We march for the regularization of all migrants -- meaning STATUS FOR ALL -- and against deportations, detentions and security certificates. We assert that immigrant rights mean worker rights, as we commemorate the immigrant worker traditions of Mayday.

Our demonstrations also take place to coincide with Mayday immigrant rights demonstrations by our allies in the United States, to whom we offer our solidarity and support. We also endorse other STATUS FOR ALL demonstrations in Toronto (May 5), Vancouver (May 1) and elsewhere in Canada. Info at
