September 26, 2015
Rally & March to End Forced Migration Displacement
In remembrance of the 43 disappeared in Iguala, Mexico
Washington Square Park
New York City

Event Sponsored by:
Campaign for Peoples Goals
International Migrants Alliance
International Action Center
International Tribunal of Conscience
The Migrant Center at St. Francis of Assisi
Fuerza Mundial Global

Statement from the organizers:
"Whether through “small wars” of destabilization or labor export programs, tens of millions are displaced from their home countries due to monopoly capitalism’s drive the control markets, resources, territories, and extract superprofits. With the drive for hegemony at the root, neoliberal economic policies and mercenary armies are unleashed on countries where imperialism has strategic interests, in order to undermine and overturn economic and political sovereignty.

As September 26 marks the one year anniversary of the Ayoztinapa 43 students who challenged neoliberal economic policies being imposed in Mexico, the images of 2-year old Syrian refugee Aylan Kurdi washed up on a Turkish beach and an overloaded boat sinking off the coast of Libya captures the ongoing reality of refugees fleeing wars of destabilization in the Middle East and Africa due to US-backed mercenary armies seeking to overthrow regimes.

As the United Nations General Assembly meets that Saturday in New York to discuss the post-2015 development agenda and their so-called “Sustainable Development Goals”, massive displacement of peoples, violence, racism, and death continues! People’s resistance and movement continues globally to undo these oppressive systems!"
