Hunger Strike for Immigrant Rights!

The “Fast For Our Future” campaign will begin in Los Angeles on October 15th, 2008, three weeks before the November 4th presidential election. Over 100 people will go on a hunger strike in order to mobilize our community to vote for immigrant rights.
Be in solidarity with the fasters including the LACW’s Margaret Johnson. We must get 1,000,000 people to sign the pledge to vote for immigrant rights. Check out the website of the Rise Movement for more information and other ways to help.
