Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report National Edition Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg **************************** Migrants, Refugees and Workers Unite at UN Meering In NY To Demand - Open Up the Borders! Provide Safety! Stop the Violence! End the Wars!
The plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty, inscribed with poet Emma Lazarus's words reads:
"Give me your tired, your poor Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free The wretched refuse of your teeming shore Send these, the homeless, tempest-toss'd to me I lift my lamp beside the Golden Door."
For hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees, the "land of the free" isn't something to be found at the American border or in New York Harbor. Rather they have been risking life and limb to get into Europe. Recently, images circulated online of a drowned 3-year-old Syrian boy, lying face down on a Turkish beach. The photograph, which many journalists and activists insisted be shown despite its graphic nature, was a stark reminder of the realities of a crisis that has gotten steadily worse. Whether through "small wars" of destabilization or labor export programs, millions are displaced from their home countries due as the plutocracyâs drive to control markets, resources, territories, and extract super-profits. With the drive for hegemony at the root, neoliberal economic policies and mercenary armies are unleashed on countries, in order to undermine and overturn economic and political sovereignty. While initially slow to rise to the occasion, New Yorkers are now rallying to demand:
. End Forced Migration! No to Neoliberalism! . End Labor Export Policies! . Stop U.S.- backed wars of destabilization in Syria, the Middle East, and Africa! . Justice for the Aylan Kurdi and safe haven for all Syrian refugees! . Justice and Accountability for the Ayotzinapa 43! . Justice and Safe Haven for Rohingya refugees! . Justice and Safe Haven for Burmese refugees!
