IWW Solidarity Fund Raiser, this Saturday!

An event to raise badly needed legal/medical funds for our fellow workers in Providence, RI.
Saturday, November 22nd, 7:00pm

Red & Black Cafe, SE 12th and Oak St., Portland, OR

$5 suggested donation at the door. Musical entertainment featuring Tansy Tarweed, The Dapper Cadavers, and Macdougall! Plus, all the delicious food and beverages that the R&B Cafe is famous for.

This event is all ages, wheelchair accessible, and smoke free.

On Aug. 11, 2007, an IWW solidarity march in Providence, RI was viciously attacked by police officers. Several union members were severely injured, and arrested. In addition to hefty medical fees, two IWW members are facing charges from the state of "assaulting a police officer". Please come to this fund raising event to help offset the legal and medical fees of our fellow workers. An injury to one is an injury to all!
