Save Our VA Activists, AFGE Members and Union Supporters,
We have scheduled the next SOVA informational picketing action at the controlled intersection of Hiawatha Ave. S. and Hwy 62/Crosstown, for the afternoon of Thursday, May 6th.
We hope to see as many folks out there again as possible, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Though we have a new Biden/Harris Administration and a new VA Director, there are still Conservative political forces trying to weaken the VA nationwide.
Last year, we had several joint actions with AFGE and SOVA activists picketing together…..as in the photo. As always, we want to make a visible statement that draws the attention of veteran patients and 2nd shift VA workers arriving at the VA that time of day. A statement that the VA’s very survival is threatened by Republicans Congressional leaders and corporate interests…and that veterans and veteran supporters have to act now and long-term to SAVE OUR VA from privatization and dismantling.
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 this May 6th Action, so we know who will be there.
For the Veterans For Peace SOVA Action Committee Minnesota,
Jeff Roy and Arlys Herem, Co-Chairs
