National Day of Solidarity on Saturday, Nov. 9th
The Labor Action Committee To Free Mumia Abu-Jamal urges you to come out to defend union school bus drivers who were fired by a union-busting transnational corporation for legally protesting unfair labor practices in Boston.
These firings took place on the very day (November 1st) of a scheduled showing of the documentary, “Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary,” which the school bus drivers’ union had helped to organize and promote!
A National Day of Solidarity with the five fired (one suspended) drivers, and with all Boston school bus drivers, has been organized for this Saturday, the 9th of November 2013. Protests are being held at offices of Veolia, the corporation responsible for these union-busting attacks.
Protest this Saturday, Nov. 9th:
In Oakland: Come to Veolia’s offices at 1720 Broadway, at 3 PM, Saturday
Organized by Transport Workers Solidarity Committee
(1720 Broadway is 3 & ½ blocks north of 12th St BART)
In Boston: Rally outside Freeport Bus Yard.
Gather at: Dorchester Ave. & Hoyt St, Dorchester, at 1 PM Saturday
(at Dorchester & Hoyt on the 18 bus)
