Protesters plan to rally at Copley Square at noon, then march to the Sheraton Hotel.

The law, considered the toughest in the country on illegal immigration, is scheduled to take effect at the end of this month. The Justice Department filed suit against the state of Arizona this week, arguing that the new law is pre-empted by federal law and, therefore, presents a constitutional violation.

Rhode Island organizations joining the march include the All People's Assembly; American Friends Service Committee; Direct Action for Rights and Equality; English for Action; the Olneyville Neighborhood Association; Providence Youth Student Movement; and the Rhode Island Mobilization Committee

Vans will leave the office of Direct Action for Rights and Equality at 340 Lockwood Ave., in Providence, at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. For more information call Will Lambek at (401) 489-0849, or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
