AND FROM JACK LALLY:

Hi,
 In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under
fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks
to corporations and the very rich and then cutting funding for education,
police, emergency response and vital human services. The right to organize
is on the chopping block. The American Dream is slipping out of reach for
more and more Americans, and we have to fight back.
Can you add your endorsement to the call for emergency rallies in front of
every statehouse this Saturday at 12 Noon to stand in solidarity with the
people of Wisconsin? We must demand an end to the attacks on workers’
rights and public services across the country. Demand investment, to
create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to
work. And demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.
You can add your name and endorse the call for emergency rallies by

Thanks!
