This inspired Meetups in Oakland
Gather at Laney College at 1:00pm on Saturday 10/15/11. The march to Frank Ogawa Plaza begins at 2:30pm and the rally program begins at 3:30. Along the march route we will stop at the Federal Building to symbolically nail a list of economic demands to Congress’s door, which are: We want investment in jobs, clean energy, education, and infrastructure, protection of Social Security and Medicare, war dollars brought home, fair-share taxation of the wealthy, and a speculation tax on Wall Street.
3:30pm rally includes: Danny Glover, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin, and community leaders will add their voices to the public outcry for government to invest in jobs and stop cutting needed programs for the poor and middle class.
Please join us for a peaceful march and rally!
