======== BOSTON RALLY FOR QUESTION 4 WITH REP. MIKE CAPUANO ==================

-------- /COMMUNITY RALLY FOR NONBINDING QUESTION 4/ -------------------------


*Thursday, October 25, 10am
Codman Square Health Center
637 Washington St., Dorchester
Shawmut or Ashmont (T)*

This Thursday, Boston political and community leaders will call for a budget  
that supports working people and solves national budget standoffs. Question  
4, on the November 6 ballot throughout Boston and number 4-7 in towns across  
a third of the state, is the largest public policy question in at least  
several decades, according to the Massachusetts Secretary of State’s  
office. It has been endorsed by four Mass. congressmen, 23 state legislators,  
and many local elected officials.

The “Budget for All” referendum echoes a pro-people federal budget  
proposed by the Congressional Progressive Caucus. It instructs state  
legislators to vote for a referendum calling on the President and Congress  
to:

 * Avoid cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans’ benefits,
   housing, food, or unemployment assistance.
 * Create and protect jobs by investing in manufacturing, schools, housing,
   renewable energy, transportation and other public services.
 * Close corporate tax loopholes and raise taxes on incomes over $250,000 to
   fund these programs.
 * Redirect military spending for nation-building at home and end the
   Afghanistan war.

"It's time people had a chance to speak out and put these principles on  
Washington’s agenda. This is what the 2012 election should be about,”  
said Jeff Klein, an organizer of the referendum campaign in Dorchester.

Over 20 Boston community organizations are supporting the Budget for All. The  
statewide Question 4 campaign is coordinated by the American Friends Service  
Committee and Mass. Peace Action. The Mass. Alliance of HUD Tenants, Right to  
the City VOTE!, Dorchester People for Peace, and the Boston Coalition to Fund  
Our Communities-Cut Military Spending 25% are leading the Boston campaign.

United for Justice with Peace [1] is a coalition of peace and justice  
organizations and community peace groups in the Greater Boston region. The  
UJP Coalition, formed after September 11th, seeks global peace through social  
and economic justice.
