PEOPLES ORGANIZATION FOR PROGRESS
TO LAUNCH DAILY ACTION
FOR PEACE, JOBS, JUSTICE!
On Monday, June 27th, the Peoples Organization for Progress (POP) will launch what it is boldly and proudly calling a ‘Daily People’s Campaign’ for ‘Jobs, Peace, Justice and Equality!’
The campaign is an effort to dramatize the impact of draconian public policies on ordinary people.
Among the issues the campaign will address are a need for a national jobs program, a call to end military actions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, a call to stand against police brutality, a call to preserve workers rights and collective bargaining, a call for a moratorium on foreclosures, a call for national health care and for affordable higher education, and more.
POP will initiate the campaign alone on Monday, but they are calling on a broad range of organizations to endorse and participate in the campaign. This is in an effort to contribute to the forging of a progressive united front for social justice for this area.
“There have been times in history when the people have been faced with grave challenges, and they have met those challenges with profound, sustained actions that have made a difference,” said Lawrence Hamm, chairman for the People’s Organization for Progress.
“We believe that this is one of those times,” he finished pointedly.
The daily actions will begin on Monday at 4:30p.m. at West Market Street and Springfield Avenue, near the Lincoln Monument and will take place their everyday for an indefinite period of time.
For more information, please call (973) 801-0001.
As the campaign gets underway and grows to the groundswell it undoubtably will become, we may need to rely on photos and coverage from many individuals. If you attend daily actions and want to forward report to Fire on the Mountain, please contact Rahim at FotM at firstname.lastname@example.org
