On May 1st, 2008, 100,000 Massachusetts households received gas and
electric utility shutoff notices.   Food, fuel, heat, electricity,
water, and housing are all basic human needs.   Why should the
utility and oil companies make HUGE PROFITS while workers struggle
to get to work, keep a roof over their heads, feed their families
and keep the lights on at home?  Or keep from freezing in the
winter?
 
Last week, Congress gave the Pentagon $162 billion more for the
war and occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan.  The current cost of
the war is now over $650 billion.  This is a crime against
the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and people here at home!
 
It is time for us to come together to demand $$ for food, fuel and
community needs, not for a war which profits greedy corporations,
politicians, military contractors and BIG OIL.
 
While our jobs and wages are shrinking, the Bush administration
and Congress have passed laws which give greater tax cuts to
the rich.  And there are massive cutbacks in healthcare, housing,
schools, youth services, food programs, and infrastructure.
 
We are in an economic crisis.  It is time to fightback and demand
emergency relief to stop the foreclosures, rising food and fuel
prices, and utility shutoffs.   Subsidize Community Needs, Not the
Pentagon War Machine!
 
A militant, independent, mass movement led by women, people of
color, youth, immigrants, LGBT folks, workers and all the oppressed
is the way forward!
