Still Time to Jump On a Bus!

BusOctober 1 - In less than 24 hours, hundreds of thousands of people from every state of the union will gather at the Lincoln Memorial for one of the most important mobilizations in a long time. From every walk of life, people are coming together to say it is time for new priorities in our nation. It's time to put our people back to work, time to re-commit to full justice for everyone, time for quality public education, and much more.

UJP and the peace movement will also be in Washington on Saturday, October 2nd. Standing with our allies and building bridges between our struggles, we will highlight the urgent need to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and bring all the troops home now! We will shine a light on the decades of bloated military spending that has eaten away at our national treasury and undermined the financial health and stability of our country.

It is not too late to make your plans to be with us in Washington tomorrow!

As of Friday morning, there are 50 seats available on a bus leaving 150 Mt. Vernon St., Dorchester, Friday night at 11pm (please arrive by 10pm).   The cost is $30, pay when you arrive.  And if you can't be in Washington there are solidarity protests tomorrow in Arlington and Worcester.  Or go to Free Speech TV to to watch live video of the event.

We urge you to visit the website of One Nation Working Together, the umbrella coalition organizing the day's events. There you can get the most up-to-date information on the agenda for the day.

We also encourage you to take a look at the activities the Peace Table has organized for the day, which include a Peace Feeder March and a large-scale distribution of peace posters, flyers and stickers.  These activities are designed to call attention to our issues and our work as a movement. We are still signing up volunteers to help us out ... please sign up now!

Finally, we ask you to generously support United For Justice with Peace in our work. Your generous support will help make it possible for us to bring the message of peace to 10.2.10. Take a minute to donate right now.

We are looking forward to a powerful, inspiring day and we hope you will be there!
