Big rally tomorrow, Tuesday. A star-studded cast.

(tomorrow) at 10:30 AM

We are fully aware (believe us!) that this is the last week of classes and that we are all suffering from rally fatigue, but this is a big one, so if you have to choose one event to attend this week, this should be it!

President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conferense Rev. Charles Steele, 2004 democratic vice-presidential candidate John Edwards, Teamsters President James P. Hoffa Jr. , Laborers President Terry O'Sullivan, and Eliseo Medina, vice-president of the SEIU, on his 5th hunger striking day, will be holding a press conference at the Strike Sanctuary at 10.30 AM and a rally at Stanford at Ponce at 11 AM. John Edwards and James Hoffa will be sympathy fasting for the next 24 hours.

We are sure the significance of such a prominent contingent of labor celebrities is not lost on you. Please make every effort to be there.

Here we go with the national agendas... hope at least one or two of these people try to remember THIS IS ABOUT THE WORKERS! They may have some trouble relating - considering the huge difference in the salaries (how much does Hoffa make?).

Let their personal campain games begin! (At the expense of the workers!)

Looks like you finally got the band back together.

And I suppose if they weren't coming, your comment would be, "Where's your support?" Continue grasping for straws......
