Minneapolis, MN - On April 2, immigrant rights activists here announced plans for a big march on May 1, International Workers Day. The march will start at 2:00 p.m. in Martin Luther King Park at 41st Street and Nicollet Avenue.

The march organizers state, “Comprehensive immigration reform is at a make or break point and we are going to be doing everything we can to have the biggest march possible this year in support of legalization for all and equal rights. The politicians in D.C. are talking about immigration reform. Now is the time to say what kind of reform we want: real legalization for all, workers rights and equal rights for all and an end to immigration raids, deportations and discrimination.”

The march is being organized by the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Coalition (MIRAc), Mujeres en Liderazgo, Workers Interfaith Network, La Asemblea de Derechos Civiles, Mujeres Levantando Mujeres, and FMLN-MN. More organizations are endorsing daily, including immigrant groups, labor organizations and other progressive activist groups.
