“Keep Our Government Open” rally, National Workers Stayaway Day

With another government shutdown looming this Friday at midnight, a “Keep Our Government Open” rally is planned for tomorrow and a National Stayaway Day is being discussed for Saturday. Tomorrow’s rally is set for 12 noon at the US Capitol (East Front). “We propose to make February 16 National Stayaway Day,” wrote Jobs with Justice Co-Executive Directors Sarita Gupta and Erica Smiley in The Nation. “We urge federal workers to consider staying away from work that day; we urge all of their allies to stay away from flying or other activities relying on federal service and to mobilize in protests at airports and other sites to urge others to also stay away.”
