March in DC this Saturday for Jobs, Justice and Education!

Filed under: ISO Events — Barnard-Columbia ISO @ 3:16 am

This Thursday 9/30, at 7:30pm, we’ll be having our weekly organizing meeting. We’ll be talking about Palestine solidarity activism on campus and finalizing plans for our reading groups, since we didn’t have a chance to discuss these last week. All are invited to come! And good news – we now have a regular location. For the rest of the semester our meetings will take place in 602 or 603 Hamilton Hall. (The rooms are right next to each other).

And this Saturday, 10/2 in Washington, DC, we will join the national march for “jobs, justice, and education”  to counter the tea party offensive. We are looking to see if other Columbia/Barnard students are interested in attending as well. If you want to come too, just write us back or talk to us at Thursday’s meeting. Here are the details:

MARCH FOR JOBS, JUSTICE, AND EDUCATION!


Sponsored by SEIU, NAACP, AFL-CIO and hundreds more.

On Saturday, October 2, 2010, join thousands of people for the march on Washington D.C. to demand:
Jobs for all
Racial justice
Funding for quality public education
Economic justice
Healthcare for all
An end to ongoing wars
Prioritization of people’s needs, not profit!

We plan to leave from 116th St on buses provided by the United Auto Workers, the union that represents most of the clerical staff on campus.  The buses will leave around 5am and returning around 10pm the same day. There is a suggested $10 donation for a seat on the bus. If you are interested in attending the march, please contact agyame@gmail.com with your name, email, and phone number in order to reserve a seat for you on the bus. More details forthcoming!
Also, we invite you to march with the Socialist Contingent at the march! Please visit this facebook page for more information on the contingent.
