On April 4, 1968 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was killed while defending public sanitation workers in Memphis who were fighting for their dignity and the right to collective bargaining. Today, workers across the country are under attack again.
In states across the country, the men and women who provide vital services for our communities are being blamed for an economic crisis that Wall Street, big banks, and transnational corporations created.
It's time for politicians to create jobs instead of playing politics. It's time to tax the rich. It’s time for all of us to stand with the public service workers who stand on the frontlines.
Join us to make April 4, 2011 a day to stand in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin and across the country. Corporate-bought politicians are trying to take away the rights Dr. King gave his life for.
NOT ON OUR WATCH!
In commemoration of Dr. King's dream of a just and peaceful world, this Monday, April 4th there will be a huge rally at the Humboldt County Courthouse starting at 5pm.
At approximately 5:15pm the rally will march to the Labor Temple, located at 840 E. St in Eureka. There will be food and beverages served.
Our own Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap is one of the featured speakers at the Labor Temple.
Join us, organized labor, workers, and your neighbors as we Keep the Dream alive this Monday.
