Greetings to Allies and Friends of DRUM:

The past two day have been an exciting moment of NYC history demonstrating the unity & power of working people's struggles for justice!At DRUM, we joined an ad-hoc coalition formed today to take ACTION in solidarity with our sisters and brothers of the Transit Workers Union Local 100.The coalition is called "New York City in Solidarity with Transit Workers" and already is made up of over 20 community and labor groups.

As an organizer of TWU Local 100 expressed to us:
THE NEXT 48 HOURS ARE CRITICAL FOR NEW YORKERS TO SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH THE WORKERS & STOP THE RACIST & ANTI-WORKER ATTACKS OF THE RULING CLASS REPRESENTED BY BLOOMBERG, THE MTA, and PATAKI.

The strategies of the ruling class are to divide the people of NYC from the TWU workers.this is where we come in to show COMMUNITY SOLIDARITY........

The Transit Workers are facing a severe onslaught of repression including the court order enforcing a $1 million fine per day under the Taylor Law, and other possible attacks in the next few days.THIS IS OUR MOMENT AS COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO SHOW OUR SOLIDARITY & ACT!

New York City in Solidarity with Transit Workers is putting up detailed action calls for tomorrow on the blog address above.Some of the actions to stay tuned for by tomorrow morning are:

1.) Phone calls to Bloomberg & Pataki all day

"The neo–corporate rulers of the world use military force violence, police, prisons and economic servitude to protect and reinforce the class patriarchal neo-colonial system but they know that force alone is not enough. They fear the human mind and they fear the minds of women above all… Women on the move will change the world..."- Nawal El Saadawi
