December 9, 2012

MichCap12-5-12

Michigan AFSCME Council 25 and many other labor organizations, civic, and faith based groups will be heading to Lansing on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 to protest the Right to Work legislation jammed through both the House and Senate Chambers. Michigan Forward is urging everyone to come and Stand up for Democracy.

People will be traveling to Lansing on Tuesday from all over the state and there is a bus leaving from Grand Rapids, which is organized by the Kent Ionia Labor Council. They will be leaving on Tuesday at 7:00AM from the Kent Ionia Labor Council headquarters located at 918 Benjamin NE in Grand Rapids. You can sign up to get a seat by going to this link.

There is also a Facebook event page for the bus trip protest leaving from Grand Rapids, which might be a place to get other questions answered.

We hope to be able to attend and report on this rally/protest and we will see if the most recent legislation to make Michigan a Right to Work state will just result in more speeches or direct action by occupying the Capitol to let politicians know they mean business.
