Dear Sisters and Brothers,
 
In response to the threat posed by the racist Minutemen, the Coalition against Intolerance and for Respect is organizing a spirited, peaceful, and legal rally this coming Saturday, October 8, at 3 pm at Burnett Bayland Park, 6000 Chimney Rock at Gulfton. The rally will include speakers, music, and poets.
 
This is a very important event. It is imperative for all of us to stand in unity and solidarity with our immigrant brothers and sisters who are under increasing attack from the Far Right. Please join us in defending the rights and dignity of all people-and demanding fair, just immigration reform with permanent residence for all, and fair trade policies. Houston needs to be a hate-free zone!
 
A bilingual flyer for the demonstration is attached. For more information, please call (832) 392-8777 or (832) 282-6997.
 
In Solidarity,
 
Rona and David
for the Progressive Workers Organizing Committee
