Thursday, April 11, 4:00pm, Say No to U.S. Intervention in Venezuela Elections! in front of the Federal Building (6 & Market), to march to the Clothespin at 15 & Market
The people of Venezuela will honor the last will of President Chavez by overwhelmingly voting this coming April 14 for Nicolas Maduro for President. The Venezuelan people clearly remain committed to the process of fundamental change in their country, no matter what. We are confident that the roots of the Bolivarian Revolution will remain strong and grow.
But the death of our dear President Hugo Chavez will be used by US imperialism and the elite oligarchy in Venezuela to carry out aggressive plans to destabilize the revolutionary process in Venezuela. We must send a strong message to Washington right away: we are organizing our voices of solidarity with the Venezuelan people and demand no intervention during this coming election in Venezuela.

Thursday, April 11, 10am Let’s Demand Tin Man Tom Propose a Fair Tax System!, the bus leaves from 846 N. Broad St.
Join Fight for Philly on Thursday, April 11th to protest Governor Corbett’s new tax proposal. Like all his policies, the governor’s proposal will only benefit his big business friends and corporate fat cats. Meanwhile, regular folks are seeing cuts to education, health care, general assistance, and other crucial services. We need to bring this fight straight to the state capitol and demand Tin Man Tom propose a tax system that is fair for all Pennsylvanians.
Unfortunately, the governor won’t be there himself. Why not? He’ll be on a South American trip with his big business cronies. Seems obvious whose voices he values, huh?
The bus is leaving from the Fight for Philly office at 10 am sharp. RSVP at (267)850-0891! Seats are going fast!
