A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
When: Wednesday, October 16 at 4:30pm
Where: Federal Building at 2nd & Madison
Join your fellow community members to protest the ongoing government shutdown, which has resulted in furloughs of workers, cuts to services for the poor, and the potential for a budget deal that compounds these problems. This IS a feminist issue. Services for women, children, elders, the disabled, and the unemployed have been shuttered.
Protest organizer, Steve Hoffman of the Freedom Socialist Party, says he wants to keep Congressional Democrats and Republicans from “striking a bargain that would cut services, jobs, Social Security and Medicare — while keeping taxes low for Wall Street and the rich.” He and other protesters will call for increased funding for social services and public education, universal health care and a massive jobs program.
