Round-up: SLAP gets a shout out from the AFL-CIO blog, and kittens of the world unite

First of all--don't forget: we're rallying with the UFCW tomorrow at 11 a.m. at City Hall against Walmart's poverty wages.

Second: lots of sleet, lots of organizing, and a rally tomorrow--we've got a lot going on, so I'll keep this short and sweet. A few links to warm your activist hearts:

  • AFL-CIO's blog interviewed national Student Labor Action Project organizer Chris Hicks yesterday.
  • Pro-democracy protestors: 2, authoritarian leaders: 0--in both Egypt and in Yemen, demonstrators proved that organized direct action can really work.
  • Also, I am having trouble locating a third heartwarming and relevant story in the news. So, in lieu of telling you more depressing stories about New York City and its war on public workers... here is what you get when you type "kittens of the world, unite and take over!" into Google Images.

Heart warmed? Good! Now go sign up for UFCW 1776's rapid response team. They need your help fighting liquor store privatization in Pennsylvania!
