Rally to Save the American Dream | MoveOn.org Political Action

From MoveOn.org:

In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich—and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response, and vital human services.

On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, we are organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on worker’s rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.

“We see Wisconsin as just the beginning…Republicans are using the bad economy as an excuse to enact any kind of cuts to vital programs while giving tax breaks to billionaires.”

More than two dozen progressive groups are organizing a Rally to Save the American Dream in solidarity with Wisconsin unions in all fifty state capitols this Saturday at noon. MoveOn, SEIU, AFSCME, True Majority, People for the American Way, the Working Families Party, Jobs with Justice, the Sierra Club, and Media Matters have all signed on to the call and are mobilizing their members to hit the streets.
