Call to March on the Republican National Convention
Tampa Florida, August 27-30, 2012
On August 27, 2012, while the Republican National Convention selects a candidate for president, we will be marching in the streets of Tampa, Florida demanding jobs, healthcare, education, equality and peace. We will let the entire world know, “We have had enough of the endless attacks on the rights of working people and our standard of living!” We will defend Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. We will defend ourselves against union busting. We will defend our children’s right to an affordable, quality education. We want money spent on human needs, not on wars overseas and corporate greed.
In Congress and in states across the country, the Republicans and their Tea Party allies have unleashed a war on the people of this country. While the Republicans bailed out Wall Street, many of us lost our homes. While they push tax cuts for the rich, they are destroying working families and our way of life by cutting programs that serve us. The Republicans are trying to break our unions and take away our right to bargain collectively. They are spearheading attacks on immigrants and promoting an agenda of racism and hatred.
For too long, too many politicians in both political parties have ignored our needs, while serving the interests of the rich and powerful. We need to take things into our own hands and make them understand the consequences of their actions. Monday, August 27, 2012, is the time to advance the cause of justice and make our voices heard. Tampa, Florida is the place for all of us to raise our demands. Whether you are working to defend reproductive rights, standing up against attacks on immigrants and racist discrimination, resisting attacks on working people, or saying no to government cutbacks, we can come together from across the country to let our voices be heard. From California, to Illinois, to New York, we can join our brothers and sisters in the South in mobilizing and building a united protest with a clear message, “No to the Republicans! We demand good jobs, healthcare, affordable education, equality and peace!”
On Monday, August 27, 2012, the attention of the entire world will be focused on Tampa, Florida. The Republican National Convention brings together some of the worst politicians that this country has to offer. We’re calling on all those ready to fight back against the attacks launched by the Republican Party and their corporate masters to take to the streets and demand a better future for our families, our communities and our children.

In the State Trayvon Martin Was Shot In, GOP Convention to Welcome Loaded Guns. Mark Karlin, BuzzFlash at Truthout: “Some days you wake up, rub the sleep dust out of your eyes, fire up the computer, and are convinced that you are reading ‘The Onion’ instead of a mainstream corporate news site.

THE FALL OF AARON SCHOCK “You know Aaron Schock. We all know Aaron Schock. The Republican from Illinois, who said yesterday he would resign from Congress effective March 31, is the kind of guy who has it all. Looks. Money. Success. A six-pack. Schock’s veneer was so resplendent that when Daily Caller asked him what vices he could possibly have, he seemed genuinely stumped, offering the most harmless of answers: magazines.” [WaPo]
Two Immigrants Killed in Ambush by Arizona Gunmen. Mike Ludwig, Truthout: “Two people were killed on Sunday night when ‘an unknown number of subjects in camouflage clothing armed with rifles’ ambushed a truck carrying 20 to 30 undocumented immigrants near the southern Arizona town of Eloy’ … The attack comes as the Arizona legislature is considering a bill that would create a volunteer, state-sponsored and fully armed militia to aid the Border Patrol along the United States-Mexico border. Militia members would be able to pursue, arrest and detain individuals”: here.
