"Susana, the mother, of two daughters, Sayra & Isabella, is scheduled to be deported April 29th. Sayra, a junior at Huron High School is being forced to leave too! Isabella, a U.S. citizen with medical needs, is a student at Scarlett Middle School. She will be separated from her mother & sister remaining in Ann Arbor. Their father was deported in 2010. Susana & Sayra have been here since 2001; have been contributing model citizens and we need them to remain in our community.
¡Alto a la deportación de Susana y Sayra! Susana es una madre de dos hijas, Isabella y Sayra. Susana y su hija Sayra tienen fecha de deportación del viernes el 29 de abril. Sayra es una estudiante de Huron High School. Isabella es una ciudadana de los Estados Unidos, una estudiante de Scarlet Middle School, y tiene una condición médica grave que requiere la atención de su familia. Si deportan a las Susana y Sayra, Isabella tendrá que quedarse en Michigan sin su madre y hermana mayor. Susana y Sayra han estado aquí desde el año 2001 y las necesitamos en nuestra comunidad. "
This evening, February 2, 2016, I'm proud to report that the Delegates of the Huron Valley Central Labor Council unanimously endorsed the following resolution:
We are outraged by the proposed Michigan Republican legislation (S.B. 713 and 714) attacking teachers and their unions. Once again Michigan Republican Legislators and Governor Snyder are legislatively attacking citizens’ right to free speech, freedom of association, and collective action.
We pledge our full... support to the MEA and AFT-Michigan in defending their members and their unions in whatever ways the MEA and AFT-Michigan ask us, up to and including nonviolent civil disobedience. We believe now is the time we must all stand together to stop these fascist attacks on the democratic rights of Michigan citizens.
Ian Robinson, President, HVCLC
Protest Governor Snyder's role in the Flint water crisis here in Ann Arbor this Monday 1/18 at 4 PM, outside the Rackham Building
Tomorrow at the Dearborn MI Walmart:
“Walmart workers are taking on the wealthiest family in the country. Walmart is the largest private employer in the world and it’s a perfect picture of everything that’s wrong with our unequal economy. Far too many Walmart workers continue to live in poverty and rely on public programs like food stamps to survive, while Walmart rakes in $16 billion a year in profits. The Walton family that controls Walmart has more wealth than 43 percent of Americans combined. That’s why 2,000+ stores (more than half of Walmart stores nationwide) have joined calls for $15 an hour and full-time work.”
