November 17th we declare an economic emergency for the 99%.
Bridge, like so much of our infrastructure, is structurally deficient
and in need of repair. This is work that needs doing, even while
thousands in Portland are unemployed! Bridges like this one are
symbols of politicians'
failure to pass a jobs bill or do anything to
help the 99%, while our
infrastructure deteriorates and the richest
1% keep getting richer.
On Nov 17th, we say enough is enough.
is part of a national day of action.
