Dear All,

This summer & fall, waves of one-day fast food strikes swept across the US.
On August 18, workers at Harvard Square's Insomnia Cookies declared their
own strike<http://iwwboston.org/2013/09/11/striking-workers-at-insomnia-cookies-join-the-iww-by-jake-carman/>against
poverty pay, unlawful withholding of breaks, and unsafe working
conditions. With support from the IWW, Harvard's Student Labor Action
Movement (SLAM) and Boston University's Student Labor Action Project
(SLAP), Insomnia strikers *still hold the line*. They have maintained their
strike for more than 50 days in the face of threats and attempted
intimidation. Strikers' demands include $15/hr, health benefits, and
company neutrality to union organizing. Please come on down to the picket
line this Thursday night, and help strike a blow for low-paid bakers and
bike delivery persons, who had the courage to stand up against exploitation
and demand a union! We will gather at Insomnia Cookies' Harvard Square
location, 65 Mount Auburn St, starting at 9 pm.

Insomnia strikers have been able to sustain their fight for justice & union
recognition thanks to their Strike Fund which has raised over $1,000 so
far. Please consider making a donation!

Please forward this message as widely as possible.

In Solidarity,
