speak out

ON THE THIRD ANNIVERSARY OF HURRICANE KATRINA, WE ASK:  IS THE AMERICAN DREAM SLIPPING OUT OF REACH?

The third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches and the situation for Gulf Coast Residents is still dire. Here in the South Bay, people also feel like they've been hit by a massive storm of economic and social forces, including a record number of home foreclosures and soaring prices for food, housing, health care, and gas,

The political parties give us the spectacle of the conventions while our most basic concerns are not covered in the media. We intend to correct the situation by holding a free-for-all Speak Out in front of the downtown library to voice our concerns.  

Thursday, August 28, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in front of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library.

Initiated by San Jose Peace & Justice Center with the participation of many community groups:

Participants include: San Jose Peace & Justice Center (sanjosepeace.org), South Bay Mobilization (sbm4peace.org), Silicon Valley Impeachment Coalition (svimpeach.org), Gulf Coast Civic Works Project (solvingpoverty.com), Veterans for Peace Chapter 101 (geocities.com/vfp101), Labor Party San Jose Organizing Committee, Cassandra Hosseini (daughter of slain Iranian immigrant Vahid Hosseini), Nihonmachi Outreach Committee (SJNOC.org), Community Homeless Alliance Ministry (CHAM-ministry.org)
