Workers’ Forum
THE WAR ON OUR RIGHTS
ATTACKS ON CIVIL LIBERTIES AND IMMIGRANTS’ RIGHTS SINCE SEPTEMBER 11

*Secret military courts taking the place of trials by a jury of peers
*Government eavesdropping on protected attorney-client conversations
*Thousands of immigrants being locked up without evidence they have done anything wrong
*Laws requiring you to carry a “National ID” card

New laws presented as “anti-terrorist” are making it easier to arrest, jail, and execute immigrants, people of color, and poor and working people of all colors without cause.

Come hear from labor leaders, immigrants rights organizers, and civil rights lawyers on the impact of new “anti-terror” policies on our communities. And join a discussion of what we can do to protect, win back, and guarantee our rights.
