On anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination

Local coalitions will participate in nationwide actions to support Wisconsin workers, public services and the middle class

WHAT: Community groups will honor Dr. Martin Luther King on the anniversary of his assassination by holding nationwide actions, including one in Santa Cruz.

The actions will also highlight current issues: Solidarity with Wisconsin workers, support for public services and rebuilding of the middle-class.

WHY: Dr. King was killed in Memphis, TN, where he had stood with sanitation workers who were struggling for the right to bargain collectively. The actions by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to eliminate collective bargaining – and the gradual eroding of the American middle class - only undermine that struggle.

WHO: A coalition of community groups and elected leaders

You need to rescue the entire peasant class that has been destroyed by the bosses control of the industrial revolution, and destruction of the peasant dialectics which is the "Dialectics of Nature". Working by natures laws doesn't allow the polluting of air, land, water, plants, animals, and peoples for private monied profits.

That means the shortest and most correct way to improve living and working conditions for the working class is to maintain worker-peasant unity with the goals of attaining food, clothing and shelter, but not at the expense of natural law.

So folks, back to the land, and build organic agricultural communes, worker controlled, and Industrial factories motivated by electricity from the renewables such as wind, tidal, and solar power, getting out of the bosses fuels such as pollution coal, gas, oil, and atomic energy which poisons the livability.
The means of production was built by the workers in the building trades, and by every known law of nature ought therefore to be owned and controlled by them.
Imagine a huge industrial society built by the majority workers, but because they are privately owned and operated, the workers who built them and know how to work them without pollution, aren't allowed to do so.
That is the crisis (kill the bill) and the bosses reallly don't know how to work the industries they have looted from labour. Viva socialist liberation. End pollution wars, not endless wars for more and more pollution, which is destroying the labouring classes globally.
Re-store the matriarchy paying and electing woman equally by doubling democracy in America so woman accesses half the wealth and half the law making.
That is a necessary path to the western worlds' liberation which was completely suppressed by the Imperialist Camp intent on making empire.
