EVENT - JOBS NOT CUTS - OAKLAND, CA - OCTOBER 15, 2011

The “Jobs Not Cuts” march and rally promises to confront the U.S. economic crisis head-on. The mass action has drawn a growing list of major supporters, including numerous Bay Area labor unions and anti-war, progressive, and community groups in partnership with MoveOn.org and Rebuild the Dream.
Jobs are disappearing, foreclosures are increasing, cities are falling apart, young people have few prospects for a good future. Now Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are on the chopping block, and the so-called “war on terror” continues. The stalled economy and severe budget cuts demand a massive popular movement not seen in this country since the Great Depression.

We will assemble at Laney College in Oakland on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 1:00 pm (Map) and march to Frank Ogawa Plaza for a rally at 3:30. On the way, we will pass the Federal Building, where we will symbolically nail a list of progressive economic demands to government’s door. The list includes Jobs Not Cuts, Work Not War, Clean Energy Not Climate Change, Cut Defense Not Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, Invest in Education and Infrastructure, Restore Fair-Share Tax Rates for the Rich and Giant Corporations, and Medicare-for-All.

March with us on Oct. 15 to send our message to Congress. Austerity will increase poverty and cannot produce prosperity.
