Resolution Calling for March on Washington submitted to the USLAW National Assembly


Resolution adopted by Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace & Justice on 11/08/09 for submission to the USLAW National Assembly, December 4-6, 2009 in Chicago

For a National March on Washington for Peace, Jobs and Health Care Justice

Whereas, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, attacks on Pakistan, military aid to Colombia, Israel and many of the countries that use U.S. aid for repression of indigenous and popular movements, are making the people of the U.S. and the world less safe; and

Whereas, these wars and military aid are bankrupting the people of the U.S., who are already suffering from staggering job losses, foreclosures and a broken healthcare system;

Therefore, be it resolved that USLAW calls upon the AFL-CIO and Change to Win Federations and other national union organizations to organize a Solidarity Day III national march on Washington for Peace, Jobs and Health Care Justice, to stop the wars and use the resources freed up to end the jobs and health care crisis here at home; and on this day working people and students are also urged to send messages to Congress and the President.
