On Saturday, August 26, I will be at the BBQ party of PhillyCAM, the public access channel for Philadelphia-Comcast channel 66, Verizon channel 29. This will take place in the History Museum Garden, located in the garden space right behind PhillyCAM on 699 Ranstead Street, between Market and Chestnut. I urge people to support PhillyCAM and thus support grassroots community media, free from the commercial restrictions of regular media; it’s always from the grassroots that new ideas come that change society. For further information, contact http://phillycam.org/.
I will join other trade unionists in the Philadelphia in marching in the 30th Annual Tri-State Labor Day Parade and Family Celebration will take place on Monday, September 4, starting at the Sheet Metal Workers Hall, 1301 S. Columbus Blvd., in Philadelphia. We will assemble at 8:30 AM, have the rally at 9:15, and march to the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing. We the working people deserve this time to celebrate our role in the building of America, and to stand up to those who would take away all that we and all who came before us have struggled for.
