Workers March against Austerity in Marseilles

by Randy Shannon

Workers and students in France are putting up a heroic battle to protect their civilization from the depredations of the financial elites who want to return to the days of unbridled exploitation of labor.

Meanwhile, will US unions and political leaders meekly await for the Deficit Commission to deliver its proposed slashing of social security and Medicare benefits for US workers? The lame duck Congress will vote in December.

PA 4th CD Congressman Jason Altmire refuses to oppose cuts in social security. Altmire supports working us to death. Will American unions fight to protect our retirees from impoverishment by the banks and their Blue Dog Democrat and Republican servants?

When will we wake up to realize that for the bankers there is no bottom line on concessions. They will take our country back to the days our forefathers fought and died to overcome, a time of poverty, deprivation, indignity, lawlessness, and thievery on a mass scale.

Cong. Altmire needs to face large militant demonstrations against cutting social security. Let’s don’t have another occasion of sitting on our hands and then crying about the outcome. Social security has nothing to do with the deficit. It is our money that Cong. Altmire plans to steal for the banks. It is better to fight and lose than to meekly accept this theft. At least we will still have our dignity.
