Labor4Peace: Upcoming Actions & Meeting

Labor for Peace, Justice & Civil Liberties,

NEXT MEETING: Monday, 3/31, 7pm, 170 Hagemann Ave, Santa Cruz eastside.


Liz Means of Health Care for All made a brief presentation on CA Senator Sheila Kuehl's single payer health care bill, recently introduced. As a body, L4PJ&CL agreed to endorse this bill as a way to "support our troops" - to assure that when they get home they will have health care. Liz will contact those interested on specific actions requested (letters) to support the bill.

UPCOMING ACTIONS: We discussed and agreed to endorse and promote the following:

Wed. 3/26 - Santa Cruz City Schools - proposal to stop giving student names to military recruiters without student's consent. Support this student-initiated proposal by packing the School Board meeting. 6pm, 2901 Mission St. Extension, 1 block west of Hwy 1 at Western Drive, far westside Santa Cruz.

Sun. 3/30 - Cesar Chavez Day in Salinas. Join UFW in celebrating the life of Cesar, demonstrate for world peace, justice for farmworkers, drivers licenses for undocumented workers. Great opportunity to build solidarity across the region and across issues. Carpools and busses leave from Santa Cruz County Bldg (Ocean & Water) at 10:30 am. Bus tickets at RCNV 423-1626

In order to communicate region-wide information, we will seek CLC decision for a weekly Mobilization e-mail bulletin on peace events. Sarah R., Paul J., and Bob F. will coordinate information.

We discussed what should be the tone of information we disseminate to working people. Agreement that we adhere to nonviolence. Jack D. will write a statement for the group's consideration.

You can get flyers for the events mentioned above from the Resource Center for Nonviolence, or from me as e-mail attachements.
