A Rally in Direct Defense of our Post Office!

Our heritage is being auctioned off to privateers, as austerity and Congressional mandates squeeze the US Postal Service to the point of breaking. The same forces that want to privatize Social Security and prisons are now in the process of selling off Post Offices across the United States.

Come help save the Berkeley Post Office and send a message across the United States that our Post Offices - jobs, services, buildings and history - are worth saving!

- Starting at 1:00 pm at 2000 Allston Way (1 block from Berkeley BART), with speakers, music and dance, street theater, public forums, and a Birthday Cake to celebrate the founding of the Post Office in July 1775.

- We need everyone’s help to mount a defense that cannot be ignored.

- National Weekend of Action to save the Post Office, including actions at threatened post offices in the Bronx, New York; Portland, Oregon; Berkeley; Tacoma, Washington; and at the Southern Calif. offices of Rep. Darrell Issa, who’s leading the Congressional effort to dismantle and privatize the Post Office.

Help plan and run this event: Come to the organizing meeting. We need everyone's help

Sponsored by: Direct Defense Action Team to Save the Berkeley Post Office in coalition with Strike Debt Bay Area.
