Network News On-Line!

Network News On-Line!

Network News is back! Long overdue, this on-line installment of Network News provides a snapshot of views and voices looking backward and forward after the unprecedented immigrant community-led mass mobilizations of 2006.

We conducted a series of interviews immigrant rights movement leaders and groups to get their take on the roots of the 2006 upsurge and mobilizations; what they believe are the key alliances to build and key issues to focus on leading up to the 2008 elections. In all, these interviews represent an opening and much needed and longer discussion of the biggest challenge facing the immigrant rights movement: The deadly mixture of a rightwing anti-immigrant/xenophobic political climate and the pact and logjam in Congress over how harsh and punitive immigration reform should be and how to we’re going to overcome them.

Other articles include a report by Alexis Mazón from the Tucson-based Coalición de Derechos Humanos on a recent tour of a Palestinian delegation to the U.S.-Mexico border, commentary and analysis by Maricela García, NNIRR board member and director of Latinos United in Chicago, on the significance of Elvira Arellano’s resistance to deportation as part of new and emerging civil disobedience action for immigrant rights.
