Do you want to show your support for working people? Do you
want to show your opposition to tax cuts for the rich
forcing cuts in the things government does for We, the
People? Here is your chance.

There are SAVE THE AMERICAN DREAM rallies planned in all 50
states for this Saturday. Campaign for America’s Future has
joined with and other organizations to ask people
to join and show their support for public employees in
Wisconsin and everywhere, and for working people everywhere,
and for ourselves.

There are also a number of local events being “crowdsource”
organized by Click through to see the event map

US Uncut is about taking action against unnecessary and
unfair cuts to public services across the US.
Washington’s proposed budget for the coming year sends a
clear message: The wrath of budget cuts will fall upon
the shoulders of hard-working Americans.


On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, we are
organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every
major city to stand in solidarity with the people of

Here is the text of the email that Campaign for America’s
Future and other progressive organizations are sending out:

This Saturday we’re drawing a line in the sand. We’re
putting everything we’ve got into one massive display of
progressive solidarity nationwide.

The protests in Wisconsin have created an opportunity
we’ve got to seize. For too long, Republicans have
dominated the debate over the economy. But this time,
the Republicans have gone too far.

That’s why we’ve joined with allies across the country
to organize solidarity rallies in major cities–
including every state capital–this Saturday at noon.
We’ll speak out to demand an end to the attacks on
workers’ rights and public services across the country.
We’ll demand investment to create decent jobs. And we’ll
demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.

Will you join us Saturday at noon? Sign up to join your
local rally here.

This massive progressive coalition is urging everyone to
show our unity with the protesters in Wisconsin by
wearing red and white to their local rally on Saturday.

It’s up to us to show our solidarity and make sure the
amazing energy in Wisconsin spreads to the rest of the
country, so that those who claim we can cut our way to
prosperity don’t win the day.

But to make that happen, progressives around the country
need to stand up right away and speak out against the
far-right attacks on workers and public services.

Republicans are launching similar attacks on workers in
other states. And in Washington, Republicans are
threatening to shut the government down next week unless
Democrats agree to massive cuts to everything from NPR
to education to food aid for hungry children. This is
our chance to shift the debate and put Republicans like
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and his tea party
friends in Washington on the defensive.

We’ve come together with a huge coalition of progressive
organizations–from the Netroots to the labor movement,
environmental groups to community organizations–to back
these rallies and make sure that the folks in Wisconsin
know that millions of people across the country are
standing with them.

Rally to Save the American Dream

In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is
under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans
are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich –
and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency
response, and vital human services.

On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, we are
organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every
major city to stand in solidarity with the people of
Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on worker’s
rights and public services across the country. We demand
investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people
who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich
and powerful pay their fair share.

We are all Wisconsin. We are all Americans.

This Saturday, we will stand together to Save the American
Dream. Be sure to wear Wisconsin Badger colors – red and
white – to show your solidarity. Sign up today to join in!
