MoveOn, the national organization with 5 million members, is keeping the pressure on San Diego’s local Congressional representatives, and the pressure is on for jobs. With a theme of “Jobs Not Cuts”, MoveOn is planning on a series of rallies at the Congressional offices Wednesday, August 10th.
MoveOn has actually been one of the key organization that has of late formed a huge, nation-wide coalition under the title of “American Dream Movement” – a coalition that Van Jones has called for earlier this year. Jones is the former Obama czar of green jobs who was forced to resign due to pressure from the right-wing.
In San Diego County, there are three events Wednesday. First and second, there are rallies in front of the offices of Duncan Hunter and Brian Bilbray. These will be held at noon. Then at 4pm, there’s a third rally in front of Congresswoman Susan Davis’ office.
Between the three rallies, over 200 people have already signed up to attend. Nearly 100 have signed up for the Davis event itself.
Here are the details:
