Workers, students and community members will be picketing the George Polk Awards luncheon at the Roosevelt Hotel [45 E 45th St, New York, NY {at Madison Ave}]. The Polk Awards is a high profile journalism event, which is sponsored annually by Long Island University, and as we were mobilizing groups and individuals to participate in picketing the event the University contacted our federal mediator to return to the bargaining table.  Alone, LIU’s capitulation is a victory for all workers at the University, but we want to show significant strength by turning out scores of activists to put more on Kimberly Cline and LIU.  See There! La Lucha Continua

-Sun, 9/21/2014: Join us at the Climate Change March

***Join the PPA Group Text: @PPAClimateMarchers to 23559

Since the Climate Change demonstration has no real target or demands, we think it is even more important to go to the demonstration with a call for people to come out and target the Wall street corporate heads who day-by-day cause economic and environmental devastation for poor and working people worldwide.

So on  SUNDAY, SEPT 21, starting at  10am will have a very high banner set up at at 79th Street and Central Park West, in front of the Museum of Natural History, so people will be able to find us. It will say “Peoples Needs, Not Capitalist Greed, Confront the Corporate Profiteers at the World Business Forum, Oct 8, NYC”

Please try to meets us at 79th St. This is the area of the march reserved for anti-corporate, anti-capitalist, anti-war, peace & justice groups. We will have a table, leaflets, signs, and clipboards to sign people up; We hope you can help with distributing the leaflet. Although we really want people to meet up at 79th & Central Park West, the cops may make it difficult for people to get through on many streets. The march lines up along Central Park West from 61st St to 89th St. We will send out another email with more information about how to get to the meeting spot in a few days. Here is what we know at this time.

The following cross streets to Central Park West will be open :  65th, 72nd, 77th, 81st, and 86th

All other cross streets will be closed.

Train: Take the C or B train to 81st street (walk down to 79th St) or  the 1 train to 79th and Broadway(walk down to 77th and over to CPW).
