State Capitol March 1/9/10

The Socialist Party of Central Virginia, as we marched on the state capitol on January 9, 2010 with the Virginia People's Assembly:
On Saturday, January 9, 2010, hundreds of activists from labor, civil rights, immigrant, prisoner advocacy, student, health, and anti-war movements and more gathered to meet, march, and rally to tell the new governor and the Virginia General Assembly: 
  • Don't balance the budget on the backs of Virginia's workers!
  • Raise Virginia's income tax on large corporations – the 2nd lowest in the country!
  • Enact an immediate moratorium on layoffs, cutbacks, evictions, and foreclosures!
  • No scapegoating of immigrants! Equality for people of color, women and the LGBTQ community!
  • Money for jobs and education; not for prisons, wars, and occupations!
