Organizer/AuthorJack Chernos
On Sunday, March 21 at 6 pm there will be an organizing meeting for the first Million Worker March on Washington in the Henry Schmidt Room of ILWU, Local 10, 400 North Point, San Francisco.

ILWU, Local 10 has passed a resolution calling for the first Million Worker March on Washington, D.C. The March will be in mid-October. Calling activist workers of all types, union or non-union, to help with organizing this historic event.

Demands of the Million Worker March are:

* National health care
* A living wage for all
* Stop the privatization of Social Security
* Stop the out-sourcing of union jobs and the off-shoring of US jobs
* Education funding for Pre-K through 12, training (i.e., apprenticeship programs), and college
* A public works program to develop America's infra-structure
* Protection of our environment
* Affordable housing
* A sustainable economy
* Fair trade, not "free" trade
* National security via jobs for all and a sharing of the wealth (the greatest threat to national security is no jobs and a poor economic situation)
