Flash Mob for Justice: Tax the Top 2%
Hands Off Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid!
New Date: Friday, December 7, 11:30 AM Sharp!
SF Federal Building, 7th St. & Mission
Civic Center BART/Metro

The nation’s richest banks and corporations have rung up billions in deficits with wars, tax cuts for the richest, bank bailouts, and reckless speculation, and now they want us to pay by sacrificing Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and every other part of the Safety Net!

Democrats and Republicans alike are burning the midnight oil in search of a bi-partisan Grand Bargain to screw seniors, people with disabilities, kids, and low-income workers.

No Way! Join our Flash Mob for social justice: We demand:

* No cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, or services to low-income people.

* End the tax cuts for the rich

* Create millions of jobs

Please join us for this spectacular event which we postponed due to rain – but Dec.7th should be dry and sunny (according to the forecasts!) Our goal is to video our flash mob and have it go VIRAL – so the whole country puts pressure on Congress to demand that we do not cut our essential programs in order to make the Grand Bargain on the deficit and avoid sequestration before the end of the year. Please try to attend, and pass this along to your friends, colleagues, and family. Wear comfortable clothes and comfortable shoes.
