Groups like Occupy Chicago and anti-G8 organizations have marched and rallied the last few days but the real start to massive protests surrounding the G-8 and NATO meetings is tomorrow. THe National Nurses United union and guitarist Tom Morello will rally at Daley Plaza in which they expect more than 2,500 people. AlterNet published my piece about the rally. The nurses want to see a financial transaction tax on Wall Street. They created the problem and they should help fix it.
Morello spoke with Rolling Stone about it:
Morello first became involved with the National Nurses United through his friendship with group member Donna Smith, who was featured in Michael Moore’s 2007 documentary Sicko. He previously played in support of the group in Boston in 2008. “My support for the working class is well documented but, in particular, the grotesque economic inequality that plagues our country and our planet needs to be addressed head-on,” he says. “The Nurses Union are the one of the louder voices doing it.”
Morello also spoke with Bill Moyers.
Let’s just say that I am looking forward to this event tomorrow.
