Senators Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have called for rallies throughout the country to protest Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Called “Our First Stand” to suggest that these rallies are only the beginning of resistance to efforts to eliminate Federal health care for more than 20 million people and to butcher Medicare and Social Security, the rallies are remarkable for their leadership beyond the left of the Democratic Party. The protest gatherings will be held on Sunday, January 15th, and you can locate a nearby rally on www.berniesanders.com. A live streaming of Sanders’ speech will be broadcast on Sunday afternoon, and if you can’t get to a rally, you can register for Bernie’s speech at www.ourrevolution.com.
No retreat, no compromise, no surrender!
