PLEASE WEAR RED IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE CHICAGO TEACHERS UNION, WHO MAY GO ON A STRIKE MONDAY WHICH WOULD BE A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE REACTIONARY ATTACK AGAINST EDUCATION & UNIONS.
OWS will march this Sat Sept 8 in the annual Labor Parade with the Professional Staff Congress at CUNY.
Please let us know if you plan to come.
This is a great opportunity before S 17 to demonstrate our integration into and support from the labor movement. In fact, this will refute the message with which the main stream media is approaching S 17 — that labor has abandoned its alliance with Occupy Wall Street, so OWS is dead.
We will meet in front of the Roosevelt Hotel on the north side of East 45th Street between Madison and Vanderbilt. We will meet at 9:45am in order to distribute leaflets about the OWS Labor Alliance & the OWS 1st Anniversary activities S 15-17 to other union contingents before the parade.
We will not have the kind of difficulties we had in the West Indian Parade because the PSC is securing our participation in advance. But people who intend to participate should send us their phone numbers and should call or text the following people if they arrive late or face any difficulties:
Before the march starts: Jackie DiSalvo 646-734-0119, Ferrari 646-734-3585
During the march- Eddie Kay- 718-964-7527 or Sam Talbot – 917-326-1079
