Senator Kerry, Represent US!

When: Saturday, October 1, 2011, 2:30 pm
Where: Home of Sen. John Kerry • 19 Louisburg Square at Pinckney St. • Beacon Hill, Charles/MGH T stop • Boston

Three years after the onset of the Great Recession, Washington is focused on cutting deficits instead of on creating jobs. Senator John Kerry is one of 12 members of a Super Committee charged with cutting $1.5 trillion from the deficit. Will he stand firm?

We will rally at Sen. Kerry's house to present demands on behalf of the vast majority of Massachusetts residents:

• Create jobs and get people back to work
• Restore fairness to the tax system
• Hands off Social Security and health benefits
• End the wars, bring the troops home and cut military spending

Assemble after the "Ending the Endless Wars and Occupations" conference, 5:00 p.m. at 41 Temple St., and march to Sen. Kerry's house, or meet us at 19 Louisburg Square at 5:30 p.m.   We will display a giant postcard to Sen. Kerry, sing songs, use visual aids to dramatize the effect of the planned cutbacks, and deliver appeals from Massachusetts residents.
