On the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and on Labor Day weekend -- Speak Out!
War spending is destroying our economy. • Iraq and Afghanistan wars are opposed by Americans but funded by Congress. • Prices of food, housing, health care, gas are all soaring. • We feel the impact of home foreclosures, banks closing, value of dollar sinking. • More people are losing access to healthcare while health insurance profits rise. • We are losing our freedoms such as freedom from government surveillance, freedom from torture, right to a trial. • The rich are getting richer but we’re sinking fast!
TIME TO SPEAK OUT! Join concerned community groups to discuss how we can all support each other and work for solutions. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors!
