President Bush is currently in Cancun, Mexico, at a two-day summit with leaders from Mexico and Canada. The issue of immigration is at the top of his agenda. Meanwhile, immigration issues dominate the news and Capitol Hill. The U.S. Senate is debating a bill to overhaul immigration laws, including a proposal by Bush to allow workers from Mexico and other countries to work legally in the United States for up to six years. None of the prospective bills are particularly progressive. Bush’s proposal has put him at odds with members of his own Republican Party. Protests on the streets of US cities continue. After the largest march in Los Angeles history last weekend, organizers are now strategizing on how to follow it up.

There will be nation-wide actions on April 10th, followed by a massive general strike on May 1st.

Sonali’s Subversive Thought for the Day:

“Revolution is not something fixed in ideology, nor is it something fashioned to a particular decade. It is a perpetual process embedded in the human spirit.” – Abbie Hoffman.
