The corporate monstrosity, Borders Books and Music, devours all in its path including workers,
community-based independent bookstores, and small-scale publishers.
In resistance to what can only be described as corporate
terror against their livelihoods and dignity, Borders
workers at the original flagship store in Ann Arbor have
formed a union. Not surprisingly, the fat cat bosses at
Borders flush from their own pay raises, decline to
negotiate with the workers. The workers refuse to bow
down to their overseers and have called on people of
conscience around the country to take action against the company.

NYC labor activists, anti-authoritarians, radical
environmentalists, and others will take to the street on
Saturday August 16 at 4 p.m. at the Borders store in
Manhattan on 32nd St. and 2nd Ave. in solidarity with
actions at Borders locations around the country. Please
join us in support of the Ann Arbor workers and embrace
them as part of a multi-dimensional strategy to derail
Borders with the eventual aim of ending corporate rule.
