Tell Palin and Tea Partiers: Fund Jobs, Not War!
Join with peace and justice activists this Wednesday as we protest
hate-monger Sarah Palin’s appearance in Boston. Palin is appearing at a rally
on the Boston Common<http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2010/04/11/tea_party_is_on_guard_for_hub_stop/>
by the Tea Party Express.
The protest, on *Boston Common Wednesday, April 14, from 10am to 1pm*, is
sponsored by *United for Justice with Peace <http://justicewithpeace.org/>*’s
Afghanistan Task Force. We will meet at Park Street Station at 10am and
move towards the Tea Party rally, which will be located on the grassy area
near Beacon and Charles Streets. If you arrive late, look for us near the
Soldiers and Sailors Monument, which is the granite column on a small hill
near the Parkman Bandstand.
On the day before Tax Day, we will call attention to how a large share of
the federal budget is spent on military and call for funds to be used for
jobs, healthcare, housing, public services and the environment. We will be
Our posters will say:
Jobs Not War!Fund Human Needs -- Cut the Military Budget!Stop the
Afghanistan War! US Troops Out of Iraq Now!No to Sarah Palin’s
Warmongering and Gay-Bashing!

*Sarah Palin on:*
*Iran and Israel*: In a Fox News interview on Feb. 7, Palin suggested that
President Obama's re-election chances might improve if he would declare war
on Iran and “do whatever he can to support Israel”. Palin later said the
Obama administration was wrong to criticize Israel’s building new
settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
*Nuclear weapons*: Last week, Palin criticized President Obama’s partial
embrace of no first use of nuclear weapons. She had previously objected to
scrapping missile defense in Eastern Europe.
*Gay rights*: Palin supports a constitutional amendment banning marriage
equality. As Alaska governor, she supported a measure to take away
domestic partner benefits from state workers.
*Economic policy*: Palin attacked health insurance reform last year, raising
fear of “death panels”. She attacked the 2009 Recovery and Reinvestment
Act (stimulus), claiming it was a federal power grab.
