ALERT ! ALERT! ALERT ! ALERT! ALERT ! ALERT! ALERT ! ALERT!


The People's Response




WHEN: Tuesday, August 2nd, 5 -6 PM


WHERE: Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW 6th between Morrison and Yamhill


President Obama surrendered to the Tea Party Republicans and has again joined the corporate attack on the American people.

US House of Representatives passed the Obama negotiated national debt ceiling bill in a 269-161 vote with 95 Democratic party member Yes votes.

Now the bill is in the hands of the US Senate with an expected vote on Tuesday.


We must respond!

We cannot be silent!


The People did not create the budget deficit. We did not create the financial meltdown. We did not benefit from either. Yet we are being made to pay and pay and pay.



No increases in taxes on the wealthy, no closing of tax loopholes, just cuts in domestic spending!



We must say, "BASTA! ENOUGH!"


RALLY to oppose the Republican-Democratic party deal that only benefits the super-wealthy and their corporate masters.

RALLY to oppose imposing more cuts on students, workers, the elderly, those seeking school loans, those who are unemployeed, those in medical need.


RALLY to say Yes to job creation, Yes to maintaining the jobs we have, Yes to clean energy alternatives, Yes to full funding of government services at all levels.

Rally to say Yes to the Middle Class.


The People's Way of ending this crises is to

_end the wars

_tax the rich

_close the loopholes

_end the capital gains tax preference

_fair trade, not more "free" trade agreements

_enact a financial services tax on short term investments

_single payer "Medicare for All" healthcare


WHEN: Tuesday, August 2nd, 5 -6 PM

WHERE: Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW 6th between Morrison and Yamhill


BRING

_your signs

_your voices

_your pots and pans to make noise




Note: This is a People's gathering. It is not "permitted."

Half of house democrats voted yes for the debt bill. I assume Madam Pelosi picked 95 from her stable and told them they had to toss the salad.

A noisy group of 100 showed up to protest cuts in public services.

When they say 'cut back,' we say 'FIGHT BACK'
