Stand With Postal Workers This Thursday in a National Day of Action

You can buy rolls of "Forever" stamps from your local post office, protecting you from future price increases. But We The People now need to put a "Forever" stamp on the post office itself.

A cabal of corporate predators, congressional anti-government ideologues, and pusillanimous postal officials are dismantling this invaluable public service, piece by piece – an agency that literally has delivered for America from the very start of our country. Yet, in the name of “saving” the US Postal Service, they’ve been gutting its services, intentionally driving away business. Having fewer customers will give the cabal an excuse to make more cuts… and ultimately to kill it as a public entity. This is like a boss telling workers: “The beatings will continue until morale improves.”

Enjoying Hightower? How about a weekly email that gives you the full scoop?

Post office workers, letter carriers, and mail handlers are tired of the beatings, so they’ve launched a nationwide campaign with dozens of other grassroots organizations to rally public support to Save Our Public Postal Service by revitalizing and expanding the services that this venerable American institution can and should provide. Under the uplifting banner of “I Stand with Postal Workers,” the American Postal Workers Union is coordinating a National Day of Action this Thursday, May 14.

Some 70 public demonstrations and rallies will take place Thursday at post offices in 30 states – from Alaska to Florida, Maine to California. To join this spirited stand for restoring the common good in America, you can find the exact location, time, and contact number for each local event at www.apwu.org.

This is Jim Hightower saying… Join me this Thursday in standing with postal workers – for the benefit of all the people. Each of us can be a symbolic “Forever” stamp to protect our public post offices from the privatizers. To join us, go to apwu.org.
