Thu, 6/10, 7pm: Boycott Arizona Organizing Meeting

***PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY***
BOYCOTT ARIZONA!!!

(abajo en espanol)

THURSDAY JUNE 10, 2010, 7pm
    Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center in the Lower East Side in Milagro Theatre
    J/M/Z/F/V to Delancey/Essex Street walk 3 blocks to 17 Suffolk St. & Rivington St. New York, NY     
    10002
   


With the passage of anti-immigrant legislation, SB1070, the worst, racist and right-wing politics have taken hold in Arizona. And the national and local impact of this civil rights assault cannot be over-stated.
In the face of such a draconian law, there have been a series of inspiring protests, civil disobedience actions, and boycott campaigns.  Undocumented students, with the most to lose, have gotten arrested occupying Senator McCain's office.  In New York, we can and must show our solidarity with immigrants and allies in Arizona by building a boycott campaign here. 
For this reason, we are putting out the call for an organizing meeting. Please join us to discuss the formation of an ad hoc committee to boycott Arizona.
Possible targets are the MLB headquarters, to call for them to change the location of the Allstars Game, set for Arizona, the Arizona Diamondbacks, who will be playing the Mets at Citi Field on 7/30 (one day after the SB1070 law goes into effect), and calling on the NYC Council to follow in L.A.'s footsteps in boycotting Arizona. Of course, the meeting will be open to all possibilities that allow New Yorkers to join the national fight back against this racist legislation.
All are welcome!!

ALTO ARIZONA

Jueves, el 10 de junio, 7pm
      Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center in the Lower East Side in Milagro Theatre
    J/M/Z/F/V to Delancey/Essex Street walk 3 blocks to 17 Suffolk St. & Rivington St. New York, NY     
    10002

 Ante una ley tan ofensiva, han hecho varias protestas inspiratorias, incluyendo marchas, actos de desobedencia civil, y boicotteos. Estudiantes indocumentados, teniendo mucho que perder, ocuparon la oficina del senador McCain hasta que los arrestaron. En Nueva York, nosotros podemos demostrar solidaridad con los inmigrants y sus amigos en Arizona en organizar una campana de boicot aqui.

Objetivos posibles incluyen llendo a la oficina del MLB para supliquar que cambien el lugar del partido "All-Star," assignado para Arizona, y los Arizona Diamondbacks que estaran jugando en Citi Field contra los Mets el 30 de julio (el dia despues que se imponga La ley SB1070), y ultimamente, llamar a pedir que el Concilio de la ciudad de Nueva York siga Los Angeles en hacer un boicotteo de Arizona.

Todos son bienvenidos a organizar con el comite ad hoc para boicotear arizona
