The Protest of the Grinning Cat – In honor of “The Case of the Grinning Cat by M.Chat.Veuille

Here’s a summary of the video:

In 2006, May 1 was chosen by mostly Latino immigrant groups in the United States as the day for the Great American Boycott , a general strike of undocumented immigrant workers and supporters to protest HR 4437, immigration reform legislation which they felt was draconian. From April 10 to May 1 of that year, millions of immigrant families in the US called for immigrant rights, workers rights and amnesty for undocumented workers.
