The people’s uprising in Egypt has proven what we have been saying for years: that changing society comes through organization and mass action. The heroic struggle of Egyptian youth, students, workers, and poor communities have given us a shining example of that fact that we can fight back, and we can win. The people have the power.

Here in Los Angeles, unemployment is rising, college tuition continues to climb, social services are being gutted, and more teachers are being laid-off. All the while, over $700 million a day is spent waging a war against the people of Afghanistan and Iraq—two imperialist wars that we have no reason to support.
March 19 provides the opportunity to hit the streets and demand real change right here in the United States. We are working hard to build a mass demonstration to demand money for jobs, education, health care and housing—not war and occupation. A victory in the streets doesn’t happen on its own. It takes a dedicated group of organizers and volunteers to make it happen.
Here are 6 things you can do to right now to help build March 19. Get involved in the struggle today:
(1) Help with a Mass Mailing to spread the word about March 19. This week from Tuesday night through Sunday afternoon, volunteers will help put together a 2,000 piece anti-war mailing to let people know about March 19. Come in tonight through Friday at 5pm or Saturday and Sunday at 12 noon. Meet at 137 N. Virgil Ave., #201, Los Angeles 90004.
