GET ON THE BUS for the

MILLION WORKER MARCH
OCT. 17 2004, WASHINGTON, D.C.!

Jobs & Workers' Rights- Not War!

Bring the Troops Home Now!

End the Occupation of Iraq!

ORGANIZE BUSES - BUSES - BUSES!


"We must keep marching ... before the elections and after the elections ... until we win justice for the homeless, the unemployed and we bring the troops home now ... Come out on Oct. 17th."

- Danny Glover, actor

Over 1,000 Soldiers Dead & Counting - Tens of Thousands of
Iraqis Dead - Many More Wounded - This Must End Now!

On Oct. 17 in Washington, D.C., you will have a timely an historic opportunity to unite the anti-war movement with an unprecedented and vitally necessary mass march of working people speaking for themselves. This is a rare opportunity and the latest casualty numbers from Iraq show that it could not come at a more critical time. We cannot and must not rely on the elections in November to stop the war. We must raise our voices loud--not after the elections--right now.

Some of the strongest voices and most active groups in the labor movement, together with the active support and participation of organizations representing every progressive movement and cause, will be “getting on the bus” to D.C. on Sunday, Oct. 17, for the MILLION WORKER MARCH.

What makes the Million Worker March unique is that the event’s principal organizers want to make the anti-war movement’s demand to “End the occupation of Iraq, and bring the troops home now” central to the march's message and its goals.

Working people are coming to Washington, D.C. on Oct. 17 because whether their concern is about jobs, decent wages, layoffs, union busting, the battle to protect our pensions and Social Security, or to make health care a universal right instead of a privilege for the wealthy--with all we face, we had better raise our own voices and act in our own interests instead of relying on the next president, whoever that will be. And the MWM will also be calling for the troops to be brought home--not two, three or four years from today, but NOW!

Why? Because it is working families who bear the burden. It is their loved ones who are sent off to fight and die--and it is workers' money that is stolen to pay for war and occupation.

The call for a Million Worker March came from one of the most well known labor organizations in the country, famous for its long history of militancy, boldness and courage in defense of working people—Local 10 of the International Longshore Workers Union in San Francisco.

Over the past few months this call has rolled across the country, picking up the support of scores of labor unions, labor activists and leaders including:

The Coalition Of Black Trade Unionists; Bill Lucy, secretary-treasurer, AFSCME; National Education Association; American Postal Workers Union; Transportation Workers Union Local 100 (NY); AFSCME District Council 1707 (NY); AFSCME District Council 37 (NY); 1199/SEIU Delegates Assembly; South Carolina AFL-CIO; Farm Labor Organizing Committee; AFSCME District Council 92 (MD); D.C. Labor Against The War; International ANSWER; actor Danny Glover; American Indian Movement; ILWU Local 34; Troy and Albany Labor Council (NY); United For Peace & Justice; National Immigration Solidarity Network; New York City Labor Against the War; Global Women’s Strike; Teamsters Black Caucus; comedian Dick Gregory; Myra Shone and Ralph Schoenman, Taking Aim, Pacifica; National Association of Letter Carriers, Branch 3825; Howard Wallace, co-founder, Pride at Work; Jim Houghton, Director, Harlem Fight Back; Justice 4 Homeless, SF; United Steel Workers of America Local 8751; International Action Center; former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark; Nellie Bailey, Harlem Tenants Council; Howard Zinn, historian; Noam Chomsky, linguist; AFSCME Local 95, Local 205, Local 215,Local 389,Loca167,Local 1881, Local 1930; ILWU Entire West Coast division; CUE Local 3; and many more.

We urge you to work to make the Oct. 17 Million Worker March in D.C. the next major event for the entire anti-war movement. If we all rise to this challenge, we will put the next president and Congress on notice that we will accept no excuses for prolonging the occupation of Iraq and wasting lives and precious resources that should go toward satisfying people’s needs like housing and schools. Moreover, we will have helped to forge a critical alliance between the grassroots of the labor movement and the anti-war movement that would represent a whole new level of unity, potential and power.

Does this sound like something worth working for? Does this sound like something you’ve been waiting for?
You can help make it happen.
