March and Walk To Protest Benefit Cuts

There is a rally and March on Saturday April 12 at Noon at the Market Square Park on West 25th and Lorain Ave. across from the West Side Market.  The group will proceed down to St. Paul's Community Church on Franklin Blvd.  This is a grass roots efforts to call attention to the austerity measures taken by the federal government.  The Protest will ask the federal elected officials to:

  • Extend unemployment insurance to the millions struggling to find jobs who lost benefits on January 1, 2014.
  • Raise the minimum wage to meet the rising cost of food and shelter in the United States.
  • Restore the cuts to the food stamps program made in August and then November 2013.
