WORKER’S & POOR PEOPLES RIGHTS DAY!
PICKET & RALLY AT THE SUPER WALMART STORE
360l Washington Blvd. Baltimore, MD 21227
Sat. January 19, 2013
12 Noon to 1 P.M.
• Demand justice for low wage workers from Walmart to McDonalds.
• Stand for workers rights from Michigan to Maryland!
• Say NO to so-called “right to work” laws and YES to raising the minimum wage!
• No to inadequate health care and lack of right’s on the job!
One out of every four persons in Baltimore City is reportedly living in poverty. Many of those who live in poverty actually work, but at jobs that pay next to nothing. In many cases these same workers are employed by multi-billion dollar greedy corporations like Wal-Mart and MacDonalds.
Let’s stand together! If Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today he would be leading such a protest.
HEAR: Representatives of the OUR Walmart campaign; low wage workers fighting to raise the minimum wage; and many others. Let’s let Walmart know that those in the community support the Walmart workers; that “an injury to one is an injury to all”.
Initiated by: Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Baltimore and the Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly

Dear Super Walmart
We the undersigned, community, civil rights, student, and religious
leaders, have picked this special weekend, the weekend commemorating
Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, to call on you to
provide justice for your workers.
Dr. King Jr. marched for justice for all! He called for an end to
poverty, and poverty wages. He spoke out for worker’s rights on and
off the job. He was jailed for fighting against discrimination.
Low wages, inadequate health care coverage, lack of right’s on the
job including retaliation for speaking out, among many other things,
are problems for all of us.
Surely, the multi-billion dollar Walmart corporation can do better!
We ask you to seriously take up the demands of OUR Walmart, your very
own workers, and hear their voices.
“An injury to one, is an injury to all.”
Let us know if you or your organization would like to sign on,
deadline for press and other purposes is 8 A.M., Wednesday, January
16, 2013 call us at 410-500-2168 or 410-218-4835 or email back to this

THERE ARE PLENTY OF ORGANIZATIONS WITH WHICH TO CONNECT IN BALTIMORE AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WE WANT ALL THESE ORGANIZATIONS TO GROW AND JOIN AS WE BROADEN THE FIGHT AGAINST CORPORATE POLITICIANS. WHETHER YOU IDENTIFY AS SOCIALIST, SOCIAL DEMOCRAT, PROGRESSIVE, OR LABOR................WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT WITH THESE POWERS-THAT-BE.
A N A T I O N A L C A L L
To Create —
Build & Multiply
People’s Power Assemblies Things are already bad —
and they are about to get a lot worse!
The people must prepare to defend ourselves against the life-threatening and ever-intensifying economic and social misery that Wall Street and its politicians are imposing on us, including endless war.
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, propose to all who are concerned about defending the economic, social and political rights of the 99%, that this period, starting with the conventions of the major parties at the end of the summer, through the elections and into 2013, be dedicated to the convening of People’s Power Assemblies, at the local and regional level, and when ready, at the national level.
Reverend Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon, president of the Baltimore Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said at a rally in Maryland for Trayvon Martin: “The political establishments, both local and national, have proven to be bankrupt; they have done virtually nothing to protect or serve the people. It’s time for the people to organize themselves and to build people’s power.”
He was speaking not only of specific circumstances in Sanford, Fla., that allowed George Zimmerman to walk free for more than 40 days after killing Trayvon Martin, but of the fact that politicians and other officials at every level of government have failed to defend the interests of working people in this country, especially the most affected, most of whom are people of color.
There is a dual crisis at play. One aspect is the crisis of the economic system, which is global. More than merely a crisis of the financial markets, it is of the system of capitalism itself. And it is the workers who suffer acutely, for workers are thrown out of the workplaces, from their homes, and left destitute. From Greece and Spain to Detroit and Los Angeles, the banks’ demand for more and more money is crushing the lives of workers and poor people, especially young people. Funds for weapon systems, however, and continuing or new wars such as in Syria and Iran, are guaranteed.
The other crisis is political. The cold and brutal truth is that no matter who wins the 2012 Presidential Election, cutbacks, wage cuts, and unemployment are going to get 10 times worse in the future. So-called “democracy” as practiced in the U.S. has never been more meaningless than now. The word is little more than a cover for the dictatorship of the big banks.
No major institution or government entity is protecting workers, especially the most disenfranchised, Black, Latino/a, Native and other workers of color who have faced historical oppression. Both political parties go along with cutting back programs that address important social needs. Both are attacking public- and private-sector unions, allowing foreclosures to continue at a rapid pace, closing and privatizing schools, continued destruction of the environment, deporting undocumented immigrants at an unprecedented pace, and sitting back while youth of color face rampant police brutality and a jobless, uncertain future.
What is to be done then? Regardless of what button or lever is chosen in the elections, the primary factor in ensuring change is action and struggle. The eight-hour workday, Social Security, Civil Rights, the right to vote, unionization, Unemployment Insurance — every progressive law or right was won and secured through struggle in the streets. In this period, the Occupy Wall Street movement opened the door, but it’s just the beginning. More is necessary to widen and sustain the rebellion against the 1%’s “take no prisoners” war on the rest of us.
A higher level of organization is called for: a block to block, neighborhood to neighborhood, city to city, state to state, region to region approach; a national network of People’s Assemblies — assemblies designed to empower at every level, that take up the interests of working people, especially the most disenfranchised, assemblies that defend our rights and fight for real democracy, assemblies where the least of us is made whole by a deepening social contract that puts working people’s needs and rights before the interests of the wealthy, corporations and financial institutions.
Such an organization would be the highest expression of democracy. The People’s Power Assemblies are the vehicles through which we struggle, whether it is defending a home -owner from eviction, occupying a school from being closed, seizing vacant property, fighting against racism, sexism or LGBT oppression.
Let the PPA be what the government has failed to be. Onward.
Build People’s Power Assemblies.

SIGN THE ONLINE PETITION FOR A MARYLAND MORATORIUM ON UTILITY SHUTOFFS NOW! Important Message from the Network to Stop Foreclosures & Evictions and the Bailout the People Movement: Below is a letter being circulated in support of an important step in the fight to stop foreclosures. Please add you name, organization's, etc. Email ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-218-4835. Also important reminder: Thurs., 6:30 P.M. Organizing meeting for the National March on Wall Street, at 2011 N. Charles St. Lower Level. The agenda will also take up the campaign to pass 09-0289.
Peoples Campaign to Pass Council Bill 09-0289 To the People of Baltimore and All Community Leaders: The Baltimore City Council has heeded the call of community activists who have been working day and night to halt the rising tide of foreclosures and the harm that it is inflicting on our communities. Council members Bill Henry and Mary Pat Clarke have courageously stepped up to the plate, along with others, and have introduced a ground breaking bill that would act as a powerful incentive to banks and lenders to restructure loans and keep families in their homes. This bill would require 365 days notice after a foreclosure is placed on the docket before the sheriff can perform the odious job of putting families out of their homes. Why is such a bill needed? BECAUSE every economic prognosticator clearly indicates that the specter of joblessness and foreclosures will only grow worse. BECAUSE, those who are losing their homes are not just statistics, they are hard working families who are suffering through an economic period that some are saying is as bad as the depression of the 30’s. They are Christina Sumpter, a mom who lost her job and fell behind in her mortgage payments after her interest rates went up. She lives in a modest row home in East Baltimore. She wonders what’s going to happen after she exhausts trying to negotiate with Wachovia now owned by the billion dollar bailed out Citibank. Will she be in the street? Others are like Joe Bullock, who has waited over 3 months to get foreclosure counseling because the centers are clogged with people waiting to get appointments. He lives on the Westside. Mr. Bullock could lose his home because he became disabled and lost his job. He is now working but doesn’t know if tomorrow he’ll get the final notice. BECAUSE, the banks and lenders who have received trillions in taxpayer bailout money are simply not doing what they are suppose to do: making mortgages affordable and keeping families in their homes. Those lenders who do the right thing—have nothing to fear from this bill. BECAUSE, keeping people in their homes helps everyone. There is nothing worse for a community than boarded up vacant homes. Vacant homes attract rats. It devalues the entire neighborhood. It becomes a tremendous burden on city tax revenues and services. BECAUSE, Baltimore City has an opportunity to set a national precedent for cities and people throughout the country who are looking for solutions to this crisis. Join us at a Citywide Council Hearing on March 24, 10 A.M. at City Hall, 100 Holliday St. Testify on behalf of Council Bill Call (410) 218-4835 to add your name to the growing list of signers.
