STRIKE MAY 2011!
¡BASTA! CodePINK, Cindy Sheehan, and all Vulnerable Folks are calling on us to STRIKE, MARCH and OCCUPY Sacramento beginning MAY DAY!
On May 1st, May Day, Beltane, International Workers Day, we will gather 11:30am at 24th & Mission, SF, march with the Coalition of Immigrants & all Workers to the 1pm rally in Civic Center, from where we will launch our STRIKE MAY 2011 march to Sacramento!
At 3pm, we will march from the Civic Center to the Ferry Building and take the 6pm ferry to Vallejo.
For the next 8 days we will march to Sacramento thru American Canyon, Napa, Suisun, Fairfield, Vacaville, Winters, Woodland and Davis doing actions – marches, rallies, press conferences, flyering, bannering – along the way. (for the exact route and issues,click here)
We are calling on YOU to STRIKE – NO BUSINESS AS USUAL – and come walk, bike, skateboard, carpool, train with all of us vulnerable folks, to get to Sacramento.
We will arrive in Sacramento on the 9th, the same day the 5 day teachers’ occupation of the Capitol begins. We will set up a TENT CITY and OCCUPY the capitol until the legislature votes OUR budget!
Our general theme is: 1) NO MORE TAXES for WARS & OCCUPATIONS; and 2) NO MORE TAX BREAKS for the RICH & their CORPORATIONS!
We are deeply urging everyone to join us in the STRIKE, MARCH & TENT CITY for however long, however many day(s), hour(s) you choose. (more information, click here)
At the TENT CITY, we are hoping everyone will do teach-ins to share their information, strategize, and build a strong diverse coalition.
