Nurses mobilize against austerity and Keystone XL

June 20 – CNA/NNU Rally Against Austerity & Keystone XL

Nurses, environmentalists and other community members will be marching across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco on June 20 to send a message to Wall Street and leaders in Washington, DC a message: Stop the Keystone XL pipeline! Stop austerity!

Rally organizers say that Keystone represents the false choices of the austerity era. Jobs VS the planet. Economic recovery VS healthy communities. Our money or our lives.

The protesters are demanding to tax Wall Street to help save our environment.

Rally: Noon
Location: Battery East off Lincoln Boulevard near the Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion

Capitalism Is Killing the Planet: The Case for Ecosocialism

Profit driven economic growth and its reliance on fossil fuels places it at odds with people and planet. The ecosocialist project wants to build a new, socially just, sustainable society based on grassroots democracy and within ecological limits by building a mass movement against climate change and environmental disasters. We want to create a society which focuses on meeting human need and ecological restoration, not profits for the ruling class.What is Ecosocialism? Why do we need it? How do we get there? A panel discussion will discuss these questions and solicit responses from the audience. Please join us!

The Panel:
Mark Ostapiak, SEIU Local 1021.
Ragina Johnson with the International Socialist Organization.
Andrew Greco, from the Bay Area Ecosocialist Project
Michael Rubin from Solidarity.

Moderated/facilitated by Amy Solar-Doherty, from the Bay Area Ecosocialist Project.
