Boycotting US goods and industry on May 1st, 2006 by Latinos is gaining ground throughout the United States, Mexico and even in Central America.
Meatpacking companies in the Mid-West will be closing. US Lobbyists in Mexico are up in arms.
The point is real simple and the uproar is evidence of this: Latinos are a huge financial block that partly supports the American economy. For decades, American companies have taken advantage of the illegal immigrants' sweat and back breaking labor to cut costs and make a profit. Suddenly, illegals are made political scapegoats and criminalized just to garner Conservative votes. This is absolutely not right.
The only way that the Latino voice can lawfully and peacefully be heard is to hit US Industry where it hurts; deep in the shareholders' pockets.
We will be heard. Enough is enough.
