**
Nationally we are working with True Majority and USAction. Locally,we
need to reach community groups who are dealing with the effects of the
economic crisis to stand with us on Thursday. Send out a press release
and make our voices heard in these next critical hours before the
Senate acts!

Take care,

UFPJ Organizing Coordinator


*Billions for War & Billions for Wall Street? *

Bush strong-armed Congress into supporting the war. The Bush
administration has spent more than $800 billion for wars in Iraq,
Afghanistan, and elsewhere around the world. Now they demand a $700
billion blank check for Wall Street using fear and threats with no
public debate!

*Bail Out the Troops and Main Street, **Not Wall Street**!***

*EMERGENCY RALLIES** *

up for Main Street. And bring the troops home!"

Although the crisis is complicated, whatever action is taken must be
done based on what we need in our communities. Tremendous work is being
done to uncover not only the roots, but also guidelines for making the
solution to this crisis one that benefits our communities!
