UK SSU mtg Sunday at 3, after the antiwar rally

Hi all! There will be a short U.K. Socialist Student Union meeting on Sunday (March 20) at **3pm at Third Street Stuff coffeehouse** on Limestone and 3rd. All are welcome.

This Sunday is the anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. There's an antiwar rally--"Invest in Peace, Not in War"--at 2pm, sponsored by the Central Kentucky Council for Peace and Justice, in front of the courthouse on Limestone and Main (across from the main public library). After the rally, which should last about an hour, there will be a quick U.K. SSU meeting at the nearby coffeehouse.

The main item on the agenda is the ongoing campaign to get the Kroger grocery store chain to agree to the demands of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, to provide a living wage for immigrant farmworkers in Florida who pick Kroger's tomatoes. We might also get an update from some folks who were recently in Wisconsin, joining in solidarity with protesters there defending collective bargaining rights. Ideas for further actions are welcome.

A shout-out to our comrades in the BCTC SSU, many of whom are in Washington, DC this weekend at the big national antiwar march there. We'll miss them at this meeting but will catch up soon to strategize and find out how the DC march went!

Looking forward to Sunday! Please help spread the word.
