NEXT SATURDAY - GET OUT IN THE STREETS! THE WORLD SAYS END THE WAR! SATURDAY, MARCH 19: GLOBAL DAY OF PROTEST ON THE TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE IRAQ WAR
* End the War *
* Bring the Troops Home Now *
* Rebuild Our Communities *
March 19-20 marks the two-year anniversary of the U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq. After all of the death and destruction, and with the Bush administration claiming a mandate to continue their war, there's a new urgency and a stronger determination within the global antiwar movement to bring the troops home now. The San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice will hold a local demonstration in conjunction with events around the U.S. and world-wide. Watch for details! Come to the meetings to get involved! See the SDCPJ website for location and directions: "http://www.sdcpj.org"

Colorado Independent Media Center has many articles worth reading. progressive writes a piece called "Dump Salazar -- Time to Start Now." Worker Freedom contributes "Colorado: Fired Wal-Mart Worker On Hunger Strike." From the latter:
A Polish immigrant involved in Poland's Solidarity movement in the 1980s is on a hunger strike after being fired from a Loveland, Colo., Wal-Mart Distribution Center.
Ryszard Tomtas was fired Tuesday for "horseplay" he said, but he believes he was really fired because he was trying to organize a union at the center.
Tomtas, 46, chained himself to a stop sign in front of Wal-Mart on Thursday but police asked him to unchain himself to avoid an arrest. Police told him he can protest in front of the building as long as he doesn't block the right-of-way.
The married father of a young son said he will drink only water until he gets some "positive impact" from Wal-Mart. He said he can't get unemployment because he was fired.
Tomtas said that he has contacted the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to a file wrongful termination complaint against the company.
