Save Our VA Activists, AFGE Members and Union Supporters,
We have scheduled the next and 20th SOVA informational picketing action at the controlled intersection of Hiawatha Ave. S. and Hwy 62/Crosstown, for the afternoon of Wednesday, November 18th.
We hope to see as many folks out there again from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. (just one hour due to the season!). We had some 20 activists on October, during the joint AFGE/SOVA picketing action on 10/29. Fully 10+ activists were from AFGE!
As always, we want to make a visible statement that draws the attention of veteran patients leaving and 2nd shift VA workers arriving at the VA that time of day. A statement that the VA’s very survival is threatened by Trump, Republicans Congressional leaders and corporate interests…and that veterans and veteran supporters have to act now and long-term to Save the VA from privatization.
We’ll meet as usual in the North Lot of the Park and Ride just south of the bridge or at the intersection.
Please respond to this email by “replying to all” if you’re coming to the November 18th Action, so we know who will be there.
For the Veterans For Peace SOVA Action Committee Minnesota,
Jeff Roy and Arlys Herem, Co-Chairs
