Date Thu, 15 Jun 2006 11:51:44 +0300


Anarchist Labor (NYMAA), formerly called the NYMAA labor working
group, is increasingly involved with these high energy pickets, as is IWW.
PLEASE COME OUT ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHTS TO SUPPORT RESTAURANT WORKERS THURSDAY NIGHT-
The Union Theological Seminary is holding a vigil in support of
workers at the Redeye Grill, who filed a $3 million lawsuit against
the restaurant for misappropriated tips, unpaid overtime wages, and
sexual harassment. They will be holding candles and singing from
7-8pm in front of the restaurant, which is on the corner of 56th and
7th Avenue. (N/R/Q/W to 57th St., or any train [A, B, C, D] to 59th
St. - Columbus Circle).

ALSO THURSDAY NIGHT -

ROC-NY is protesting in front of Restaurant Daniel, one of New York's
only 4-star restaurants, owned by Celebrity Chef Daniel Boloud, for
discrimination against workers of color. Latino and Bangladeshi
runners and waiters have filed charges at the EEOC for consistently
being passed over for promotions by less-experienced white workers.
We'll be there 7-8pm, at the corner of 65th and Park Ave., (F to
[Lexington Avenue stop at] 63rd or the #6 to Hunter College - 68th St.)

FRIDAY NIGHT -

ROC-NY is protesting in front of Cafe Fiorello, owned by the same
company as the Redeye Grill, which has also allegedly been
misappropriating tips and not paying proper overtime wages. More than
40 current and former workers have organized against their employer.
We'll be in front of the restaurant from 7-8pm, which is between 63rd
and 64th St. (Any train [A, B, C, D] to 59th St. or the #1 to
66th-Lincoln Center).

PLEASE CALL US AT 212-343-1771 for more information!
