WBAI newWar on Immigrants Report,  a segment of Global Movement, Urban Struggles on Pacifica Radio: January 3, 2013

To listen: click on the black arrow below (or here to download):

HOSTED THIS MONTH BY: Donald Anthonyson of Families for Freedom

GUESTS: Nastaran Mohit, a union organizer and immigrants rights activist, Mariano Munoz, activist and Occupier, and Juan Carlos Romero, an organizer with Brandworkers  International.

The past year would appear to have been somewhat of a mixed bag in regards to immigration and immigrants. From deferred action for “Dreamers”, immigrants workers gaining union certification to 409,849 people getting deported, the highs and lows seems skewed. A new “detainer policy/memo along with the report of a drop in backlogged cases in the Immigration Court adds to  the  murkiness. Immigrants’ presence and voices within the flow of Occupy had its own resonance last year and is still resonating in this new one.
