Troy Labor Council [New York]
Resolution for a National March on Washington for Peace, Jobs and
Health Care Justice

Whereas:
The wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, attacks on Pakistan, military aid to
Colombia, Israel and many of the countries that use US aid for
repression of indigenous and popular movements, are making the people
of the US and the world less safe.

And Whereas:
These wars and military aid are bankrupting the people of the US, who
are already suffering from staggering job losses, foreclosures and a
broken healthcare system.

Therefore:
The Troy Area Labor Council AFL-CIO calls upon the AFL-CIO to organize
a national march on Washington for Peace, Jobs and Health Care Justice,
to stop the wars and to use the resources freed up to end the jobs and
health care crisis here at home.

Passed unanimously at the October 21, 2009 Meeting
