Rally for Justice – Wed., Oct. 1st @ Noon – North Plaza

We want to thank all of you who participated in today’s rally. Your enthusiasm in support of the cause was electric! We only wish that we had more than 10% of our members. We are going to give you another chance to participate. We’ll be holding another rally soon. For those of you who believe that your participation is not vital, we leave you with the following: "In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up." -- by Martin Niemöller, prominent German anti-Nazi theologian and Lutheran pastor, best known as the author of the poem First they came.... Ponder this! Alex Eleanor ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------12 ALERT!!! Rally for Justice – Wed., Oct. 1st @ Noon – North Plaza DOL manager Eric Raps has cost the DOL over a million dollars in discrimination payments and legal fees. Bennett Gamble has been personally honored by several Secretaries of Labor. Can you guess which one was removed from the FPB and terminated without just cause? Something is amiss.
