Sat. May 8 the 75th Anniversary of the WPA


  PROTEST 4
  A JOBS PROGRAM


        Sat. May 8th 12 Noon
        WASHINGTON, D.C.
        Rally at the Dept of Labor
        200 Constitution Ave. NW
        (between 2nd and 3rd Sts.)

    *Reserve your seat on the buses today!

      Seventy-five years ago, Pres. Roosevelt signed the executive order
      establishing the Works Projects Administration, the biggest public
      jobs program in U.S. history. Join unemployed people, trade
      unionists, community and youth activists and organizations from
      all over the country on Saturday, May 8 in Washington, D.C. to
      call for a real jobs program for the 30 million unemployed and
      underemployed people in the U.S. today.



      We will protest at the Labor Dept. and then meet to plan our next
      steps. Joblessness is the number one crisis today. Yet, from Wall
      St. to Washington, bankers and politicians are determined to
      ignore this reality. After wasting trillions on bailing out
      bankers and waging wars, the only thing they want to talk about is
      cutting social programs, laying off more workers, busting unions
      and causing more misery and suffering. If we don't unite, and
      raise hell, hell on earth is what we'll have. In 1935, it took a
      mass struggle to win a jobs
      program.


      Join us on May 8 to start a fight for a jobs program right now.


      *JOBS NOW!*


      This event was initiated by the Bail Out the People Movement.
