WE ARE ONE" – CALIFORNIA ACTION

CANDLELIGHT VIGIL
in solidarity with Wisconsin Workers

Tuesday, February 22nd at 5:30pm
State Capitol West Steps, Sacramento


Rallies. Crowds spilling into the streets. A sea of people marching together in solidarity. Every day this week, nonstop.

This isn’t happening in Egypt...It’s happening in Madison, Wis.

Description:  http://act.aflcio.org/c/130/images/Facebookweareone(1).jpgSchools are closed. Workers, high school and college students, community members, religious groups and concerned citizens have dropped their daily lives to rally against Gov. Scott Walker’s Draconian attacks on middle-class jobs and his proposal to strip Wisconsin teachers, nurses, social workers and other public employees of their collective bargaining rights.

Walker’s immediate attack is aimed directly at some 200,000 public workers—but the brave men and women taking to the streets come from every walk of life and recognize that all working people—public and private sector—are in jeopardy. And they know that if we don’t all speak out and stand together, we’ll all be targets.

JOIN US ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND!  
5:30pm at the State Capitol West Steps, Sacramento
