Here in the city of Boston, all of the public service unions,
including firefighters, teachers and major service employees,
are operating without a contract. Despite lengthy
negotiations, city officials are unwilling to grant even a
minimal pay increase. This in a time when rent and living
expense are facing records highs. For the members of these
unions, they have been verbal taunted by the mayor Thomas
Menino and accused of trying to "hold him hostage." Even
with the coming Democratic National Convention (July
2004), the mayor is unwilling to assist those who make the
city function day-in and day-out. With both sides claiming
that talks have gone nowhere, the mayor responded to a
threat of a picket outside the annual State of the City
address with a 'bring it on' challenge. The unions have not
backed down, and are calling for a massive demonstration
outside of John Hancock Hall (180 Berkley Street) on
Tuesday, January 13th at 6pm.

This is a call to all anarchists, radicals, workers, students,
teachers, union members, and the entire community of
Boston to come out in a show of working class solidarity
with those on the picket line at the State of the City address.

We are calling to assemble at the Back T-Station Exit on
Clarendon Street (be careful, there are two exits to Back
Bay, make sure you are on Clarendon) at 5:30pm. Then we
can head over to the main picket as a group.

Tuesday, January, 13th, 5:30pm
Back Bay T-Station (Clarendon Street Exit)
