CWA STATEMENT ON EVICTION OF OCCUPY WALL STREET FROM ZUCCOTTI PARK

http://district1.cwa-union.org/news/entry/cwa_statement...

The Communications Workers of America released today the following statement from District 1 Vice-President Chris Shelton:

"The Communications Workers of America strongly condemns the decision by Mayor Bloomberg to forcibly remove protesters from Zuccotti park. In two short months, Occupy Wall Street has focused the world's attention on the deep frustration felt by working people about an economy that no longer works for the middle class. The 99% have seen good jobs disappear while the rich get richer and the big banks make billions with impunity. Mayor Bloomberg may have cleared the park for now, but Occupy Wall Street's message cannot be silenced. No one can evict an idea whose time has come.

"Now more than ever, CWA members will join the massive day of action on Thursday, November 17. Verizon workers who have been walking for over a week from Albany, NY -- over 150 miles in total -- will arrive at Verizon Headquarters at 140 West St in New York City on Thursday at 4 pm to join hundreds of their coworkers in a March to Foley Square. Their message is the same message we are hearing from Occupy Wall Street and beyond: The 99% are standing up against corporate greed and against a government that more and more puts the interests of the 1% ahead of the middle class."

1. So Are The CWA Members.....


...out on the sidewalks,donating tents or logistics,bringing hot meals to the protesters on a frequent basis... I doubt it..These articles are just lip service to get some free press. Most unions are just as complicit with wages not keeping up with COLA as the CEO.


I dont want words I want ACTION.
