Boston Rally: Saturday 8/31, 1 PM at Park St. station

No War on Syria!

ANSWER Boston has endorsed this important action initiated by United for Justice with Peace and the Committee for Peace and Human Rights. We encourage our members and supporters to help spread the word and to attend.

Washington is on the march toward yet another war of aggression in the Middle East, this time targeting Syria. In a recent Reuters poll, only 9 percent favored direct U.S. military intervention, and 89 percent opposed arming the Syrian opposition. But the tiny elite clique who really run the country are completely discounting the will of the people, making a mockery of their so-called “democracy.”

For the people of the United States, fighting against a U.S. intervention in Syria is of paramount importance to prevent the spread of war and destruction. The ANSWER Coalition is calling on all those opposed to this brutal war drive to take action against any U.S. attack on Syria!

Stand with Striking Fast Food Workers!
Demand a living wage: $15/hour

Fast-food Workers Strike 08-29
National Day of Action
Thurs. 8/29., 4:00pm
Boston Common Bandstand
Facebook Event

Low-wage workers will make history on Aug. 29 during a national day of strikes demanding a living wage. Courageously challenging some of the biggest corporations in the world, these actions are a major development in the struggle for dignity on the job.

These strikes will be the latest in a countrywide organizing campaign fighting for a $15 an hour wage and to force corporations to respect the rights of their employees. Until now, this has largely taken the form of citywide mobilizations, giving Aug. 29 additional significance.

In many areas, fast food workers have taken the lead, and it is easy to see why considering the outrageous level of exploitation that exists in this industry. A fast food worker makes on average $15,080 dollars a year, not nearly enough to support oneself or a family, but the average fast food executive makes $25,000 per day.

Similarly absurd are arguments put out by defenders of big businesses that raising wages would lead to higher prices. McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s made a combined total of $5.6 billion in profits last year – they are more than able to afford to pay a living wage.

Stand with these workers in Boston & around the country to say, "We are worth more!"
