    Things could get very rough if they do this.

    Activists working to 'paralyze' U.S.
    Organizers of L.A. rally now plan mass action to disrupt economy

    The coalition that organized an estimated 500,000 marchers in Los Angeles to protest immigration reform announced its next mass action is "an economic and labor boycott that will paralyze the U.S. economy."

    The radical separatist publication La Voz de Aztlan, the Voice of Aztlan, said the proposed boycott is in response to a "racist" measure in Congress.

    The House has passed a bill to tighten border security, but President Bush broadly supports rival legislation being debated in the Senate that contains a guest-worker proposal.


    Coalition member Roberto Reveles of "Unidos en Arizona" said his group will host a "summit meeting" April 8 and 9 in Phoenix to work out details of the boycott.

    The boycott is scheduled for May 1, the Day of the International Solidarity of Workers, or May 5, the Cinco de Mayo celebration.

    Armando Navarro, coordinator of the National Alliance for Human Rights, said, "We are living through very dangerous times and we must take advantage of the moment. If we just sit and wait to see what happens, everything we have accomplished so far may go to waste. That is why we must continue the struggle to once and for all defeat that racist (House) proposal."

    In Phoenix, an estimated 10,000 to 12,000 participated in a march and rally last Saturday.

    "What occurred on March 24 is a consequence of the people being tired of the treatment we are receiving," Reveles said. "The first step has already been taken, we organized ourselves and have completed the first phase, now we have to prepare for the second."

    Reveles said the activists "will not rest" until they see the House bill defeated.

    "We are sure that the preparations we make at the summit will lead us to victory," he said. "We are united and only united will we be victorious."

    La Voz de Aztlan said the two-day summit will be attended by Mexican-American and other Latino groups from Nevada, Texas, Wisconsin, Washington, New York, Chicago, California and other states.

    Representatives from Mexico, Central and South America also will attend.

    Navarro said the "international boycott" counts on the support of the consulates of Bolivia, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Cuba and Mexico, along with Mexican labor organizations.

    "We have to demonstrate to the nation, one more time, that its economic stability depends on us," Navarro said. "I am sure that our sister nations of Latin America, who are also tired of the situation, will unite with us.

    The professor concluded: "That is why we will celebrate May 1, 'Day of the Worker,' with labor strikes, no purchases and go out and march. Soon they will see the impact we will have!"

    As WorldNetDaily reported, one of the organizers of the L.A. rally was the Mexica Movement, which already has decided it is the "non-indigenous," white, English-speaking U.S. citizens of European descent who have to leave what they call "our continent."

    Both Rep. James Sensebrenner, R-Wis., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and a proponent of tougher border security, and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger were caricatured as Nazis by the group on its posters and banners.

    The group insists the indigenous people of the continent were the victims of genocide – a campaign of extermination that killed, according to one citation, 95 percent of their population, or 33 million people. Another citation on the same website claims the toll was 70 million to 100 million.

    The only solution, says the Mexica Movement, is to expel the invaders of the last 500 years, force them to pay reparations and return the continent to its rightful heirs.

    The platform of the group illustrates the diverse – and sometimes extreme – agendas of those participating in the mass mobilizations that have been seen largely as protests against efforts to curb illegal immigration.

    The Mexica Movement has big issues with many other equally radical groups participating in the massive, united-front rallies, include the separatist Aztlan Movement.

    Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs, is regarded in Chicano folklore as an area that includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas. The movement seeks to create a sovereign, Spanish-speaking state, "Republica del Norte," or the Republic of the North, that would combine the American Southwest with the northern Mexican states and eventually merge with Mexico.

    La Voz de Aztlan identifies Mexicans in the U.S. as "America's Palestinians." Many Mexicans see themselves as part of a transnational ethnic group known as "La Raza," the race. A May editorial on the website, with a dateline of Los Angeles, Alta California, declares that "both La Raza and the Palestinians have been displaced by invaders that have utilized military means to conquer and occupy our territories."

    Others in the coalition hope to see a "reconquest" of the American southwest by Mexico. This would not likely take place through military action, they say, but rather through a slow process of migration – both legal and illegal.

    I hope they do something. Then let's lable them as terrorists and assert that we now need our second ammendment right more than ever considering these criminal invaders are now 20 million strong and in every nook and cranny of our communities.

    I, for one, hope they're successful and do some damage. This country deserves it, and more, for failing to protect its borders, language and culture. People need a wake up call.

    If they do indeed disrupt the economy, what happens to these low-end jobs? Whence cometh their money?

    Calls to mind, "He'd cut off his nose to spite his face."

    Illegals are 5% of the workforce, or some 7 million. Other than homebuilding, they're predominantly in low-end jobs; mostly in restaurants. That's gonna be serious disruption?

    You'll be singing a different tune when your front yard's grass is 4 feet high, you can't get a decent taco anywhere, and you gotta move your furniture yourself. :neener:

    But yeah I think employers would more than likely fire the ones that don't show up and just find more unskilled labor that needs the cash to replace them.

    I was thinking along the exact same lines as Art Eatman. (Actually i was thinking, can they hold out long enough? Do they need us more then we need them?)

    Let 'em do it. Theyll be screwing themselves over first. And giving us legal civilians a wake up call.

    Fine by me, I LIKE tallgrass prairie. About the tacos; you mean *I'LL* stop cooking for myself and someone else will do it? HUZZAHHH!! And for the furniture, well all of it that I own I already move it myself anyway, since 99% of it can be broken down for moving. :neener:

    In Phoenix, if you want your yard to be green, get a can of paint and have at it. Paint that gravel green...

    I think that these protesters will find that a walkout will only solidify voters' opinion against them.

    I do all 3 of those things myself. How is this going to disrupt me. Oh Noes, I'll have to pay $2.50 for head of lettuce instead of $1.39.

    World Net Daily is the right wing equivilant of The Daily Worker, outpaced only by newsmax. I'm not too worried about this happening. Yet.

    If I start seeing other sources, that is.

    That argument that illlegal immigrants do the job americans wont do is utter an pure bull crap.

    Americans will do it- but if you dont pay us a decent wage for doing it we're gonna try and get a decent wage. We're smart enough not to work for 50 cents a day- and its been like that long before minimum wage.

    Southern California is desert. We need to xeroscape, not landscape. Gardeners are a symptom of the problem.

    Let them "paralyze." I think we need to see the face of the enemy clear, ugly, and upfront.

    I know Hollywood--let's take Hollywood and Western for starters--needs urban renewal. It's a major illegal alien encampment. I say bring in the tanks to clear the old for the new.

    If those little Aztlan pricks start doing actual newsworthy damage to America, they will learn that they are not Americas Palestinians, but America's Pinatas.

    Remember, Martin Luther King didnt advocate non-violence because he was a wussy, he did it because he realized that blacks would lose a shooting war.

    I hope that these militant mexican groups dont figure this out until it is too late. I am surprised that the FBI hasnt installed agent provocateurs in those raza/aztlan groups yet. Isnt that standard FBI operating procedure?

    Illegal aliens are tantamount to slaves and people who take advantage of them should at the very least be ashamed. IMO the activist should be marching against those who capitalize on cheap unskilled and often uneducated people (I suspect this will be phase two).

    I guarantee a few years down the road we will see a rebirth of (Hispanic) unions not to mention a boatload of discrimination lawsuits/ labor laws.
    Nothing is free and sooner or later the table will turn.

    Hey if all the illegals in Sothern California just took a few days off work at the same time, we would learn the meaning of "paralyzed".

    Nothing could be better. We'll know who the illegals are and we'll know who the "whiners" are. Good information for Later.

    Let the crazies do as much damage as they want - they have been very effective in alienating (excuse the pun) any and all sympathy in all but the most leftist and deluded circles. Extremism would lose the political war, and they certainly cannot win the shooting war (yet).

    Your right they can't win that way, I suspect they'll use congress and the courts to advance their agenda.

    Great comment to wake up to! :D

    That's true, but Condoleezza Rice making that argument on the evening news only makes more people believe it.
