Where: Harvard Kennedy School • 79 JFK St. • Littauer Hall • Cambridge

Speaker Pelosi:

No Escalation in Afghanistan!

Bring the Troops Home Now!

Support Single Payer Health Care!

Stop CO2 Pollution –350 by 2020!

 

Protest House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Friday, November 13,   4:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Harvard U., JFK School, Littauer Bldg.
79 John F. Kennedy St., Cambridge
 
The Democrats won a majority in the House of
Representatives in 2006 on a popular mandate to bring the troops home and stop selling America to corporate interests. As Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi sets priorities for Congress.
 
There is no military solution in Afghanistan.   The more U.S. troops that are sent to prop up the corrupt regime, the harder it will be to make peace. But under Speaker Pelosi’s leadership, Congress continues to support war and occupation. Congress must cut off the funds to bring all our troops home from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq.

The way we raise and spend our taxes tells us a lot about what our country has become.

Why do working people pay their taxes, while the rich and corporations get huge tax breaks?

Why are we cutting medical research, Head Start, housing, food stamps and unemployment insurance -- while we spend more on the Pentagon than the next 10 countries combined?

Why is there no national jobs program -- when there are still more than 10 million unemployed and our state plans to spend $2 billion on new prisons?

Why can energy companies pollute the atmosphere and destroy the climate, but there is no price for emitting carbon?

We need a Budget for All!
