With my dual-role as IMC volunteer and Mass Global
Action employee (1 of the main groups behind the event
who we rent office space from...) Im also helping
organize the May Day Rally but am totally down with
some of what has been suggested. Ive already agreed to
post production video work if needed, one thing I can
help w/ is in advance securing like set times for
people involved to be to be interviewed by other IMC
folks (not myself, Im known to be inarticulate and
weird in those situations) For anyone wanting to know
some of orgs involved so far for any advance
connections ya might wanna make below ill provide a
list which is still growing... I totally agree that
this should be something people really get energized
for because unlike other more political events, even
the antiwar march, this thing really transcends
agendas and is being organized in a way that brings
together a broad, diverse spectrum for a cause which
only risks discluding racists and xenophobes. With
something this multifaceted I think we really need
wide variety of multifaceted coverage. we gotta ceez
this OPPORTUNITY! And above all its just gonna be a
great event anyways but also one that really provides
alot room to shine
List of groups...... Arab-American Anti-Discrimination
Committee, American Friends Service Committee,
Association for a Secular and
Democratic South Asia, Brazilian Immigrant Center,
Centro Presente, Community Church of Boston, East
Ecumenical Communty Council, Irish Immigration
Center, Irish United for Immigrant Rights,
Action, Massachusetts Immigrant & Refugee Advocacy
Coalition, MassachusettsJobs with Justice, North
Alliance for Fair Employment, Painters District
Council 35, SEIU Local 615, Boston Mobe, and more...
