Union Organizer to Stand Trial for Free Speech.

The Bush Terror Regime is hellbent on taking away workers rights to organize and freedom of speech. If anyone can attend this trial, it is a week before the coronation of queen George, it would further show the support of Unions and their benefits to society, in general.
Also, show your support for this organizing effort by not doing business with Starbucks.

For Immediate Release:
Industrial Workers of the World IU/660

Starbucks Union Organizer to Stand Trial in RNC Case

New York, NY- Daniel Gross, a co-founder of the IWW Starbucks Workers Union and an employee at the company, is set to stand trial for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest at a Republican National Convention protest. Gross participated in a peaceful union rally in front of the Starbucks store where he works to protest the Bush Administration’s support for anti-union actions at the world’s largest coffee chain. He faces a maximum sentence of over six months in jail. The union is asking its friends and allies to attend the trial in support of the right to protest. The trial will begin on January 14 at 9:30 a.m. in Part C of the 100 Centre Street Courthouse in Downtown Manhattan. More>>>
