- Pass the Employee Free Choice Act.
- Tax the rich – don’t bail out the banks.
- Money for jobs and social services, not for war

Speakers to be announced.
The bankers have organized themselves and vigorously lobbied for bailouts. We, working people,  need to organize ourselves to demand policies in the interest of working people as whole.  The government should defend our interests, not the interests of the rich. After all, we are the              majority, and we had no part in creating this crisis.
