Say NO to Union Busting! Support the Boston School Bus Drivers union (Steelworkers Local 8751) now. Attend June 30 Solidarity Day, send funds, resolutions (see latest solidarity letter from various labor unions on the below website) etc. Urgent support needed.
Describing itself as the “the biggest business event of the year” THE WORLD BUSINESS FORUM will bring some 5,000 chief executive officers, and heads of the fortune 500 multi-billion dollar transnational corporations and banks to Radio City Music Hall in New York City in October. This is the invasion of the 1%. They make the decisions that fire workers, bust unions, and keep the wages that ordinary workers take home as low as possible. We will be there to say “No Way: Workers Need $15 & a union.” Call 212-633-6646 or FaceBook.

When you call say, “Hello, my name is ________, and I am calling from _________ to demand that U.S. Attorney McQuade drop the charges against Rasmea Odeh.”
Make the call!
Thursday, June 26, 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time
Rasmea Odeh goes on trial in Detroit on September 8, 2014.
Our first call-in day two weeks ago had the U.S. Attorney’s office answering its phones non-stop all day, proof that Rasmea has massive community support. Let’s keep the pressure on the prosecution!
Rasmea is a community icon and recently won an “Outstanding Community Leader” award from the Chicago Cultural Alliance for her 40+ years of dedication and service.
Rasmea was tortured by the Israeli Military and convicted by an Israeli military kangaroo court 45 years ago. Her confession was forced by vicious physical and sexual torture. She never committed any crime, so the charges against her today are false and unjust. These charges are a political attack on her, on her community, and on all anti-war and Palestine support activists.Call in today and support Rasmea Odeh. Demand the charges be dropped!
With the outbreak of fighting from Mosul to Tikrit putting Iraq back onto the front burner of world media coverage and with the Obama administration threatening air strikes in Iraq once again, anti-war organizations and activists in the United States must take a clear position against further U.S. intervention of any type. Broad opposition must again be mobilized to demand:
No bombing, no military aid, no advisors and no troops to Iraq!
