UN Plaza | 7th Street & Market Street, San Francisco, CA



Saturday, the eighth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, will be an international day of action against the war machine.

In San Francisco, people will gather at 12 noon for a rally at UN Plaza calling out for “No to war & colonial occupation! Fund jobs, healthcare & education! Solidarity with SF hotel workers!”

We’ll then march to two nearby hotels boycotted by the 12,000-member strong Local 2 hotel workers union, fighting for a new contract that protects their healthcare, wages and working conditions.

The call to arms with the hotel workers is all because the war spending ($1 trillion+ 2011) is a crippling sum when 30 million people remain unemployed or severely underemployed, and cuts in education, housing and healthcare are imposing a huge toll on the people.
