Great rally and meeting, and more in the works!

The antiwar war rally on Sunday, organized by the Central Kentucky Council for Peace and Justice, was well-attended, with about 100 people and lots of energy.

Afterwards, thirteen of us gathered at Third Street Stuff for a lively U.K. SSU meeting. It was a really great planning meeting. We've decided to organize a forum for April 4, which is a national day of action on labor issues and the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. The forum will link labor rights issues to the problem of war, addressing the ongoing war on the working class, from the "shock doctrine"-style (cf. Naomi Klein) attack on collective bargaining rights in the midwest, to the exploitation of immigrant farmworkers in Florida, to the continuation of U.S. imperialist war. If you'd like to help with organizing the forum, please get in touch: We need all the help we can get to make this a successful event!

Thanks to all who were able to attend the rally and/or the meeting. More to come!
