Jobs, Not War

May 1: May Day Rally for Jobs, Not War - Bring the Troops Home Now!

Union Square 1 pm

Join us May 1 to say, "Jobs, Not War!" Thousands of working people, trade unionists, veterans, youth, and antiwar activists will take to the streets on May Day--International Workers Day--to demand jobs, housing, and education, not war and occupation.

On March 19, thousands of activists, students, veterans, and community organizers joined in a historic march from Harlem's Marcus Garvey Park to Central Park to demand an end to the illegal occupation of Iraq.

The turnout for this demonstration confirms that the antiwar movement has entered into a new phase of organizing against the war. It confirms that the greatest attention must be paid to reaching out to communities most impacted by the war and by the policies of the Bush Administration. These communities are the targets of the budget cuts. They are also targeted by military recruiters, who exploit economic hardship with false promises of opportunity. As a result, the children of these communities are dying disproportionately in Iraq, paying the ultimate price for a policy of greed and empire.


Next Step: May Day

On May 1 the Troops Out Now Coalition and the NYC Million Worker March are calling for a Jobs, Not War! - Bring the Troops Home Now! rally in Union Square, NYC.

May Day grew out of the struggle of working people in this country more than 100 years ago for an 8-hour workday with a full day's pay. All over the world, working and poor people march on May Day to send the message that workers are united and have the right to a job, a living wage, health care, housing and education. Workers have a right to pensions and social security. Immigrant workers and the unemployed should have the same rights. On May Day 2005, let's bring back that fighting spirit.

This is an important opportunity to link the struggle against the war with the struggle for jobs, healthcare, and education here at home.

Now, more than ever, the antiwar movement needs to be in the streets to oppose the Bush Administration's agenda of endless war. Two years ago, George W. Bush took the U.S. into war under the pretense that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Now, his Administration is claiming that Iran and North Korea possess weapons of mass destruction. It is important that we expose any talk of removing the threat of nuclear weapons as just another justification for a pre-emptive war against the people of Iran and Korea.

As the Bush Administration gears up for new military adventures, working people at home are under attack, as budgets for education, housing, and healthcare are slashed, the cost of living rises, and jobs are disappearing.

For more than 100 years, May Day has been a day for working people to be in the streets, united in the struggle for jobs, healthcare, and housing. Join us in the streets, May 1 in Union Square!
