extend federal unemployment

A Proposal: House Republicans today blocked an effort to extend federal unemployment insurance (UI) benefits, making a lapse in benefits all but certain when they expire at the end of the month. Democratic leaders could bring the bill back to the floor. Sign the petition here to tell Congress to maintain UI for long-term jobless workers.

And there is the option to hit the streets massively, call for a poor people march and assembly. Make it as big and as widespread as the anti-war movement and form alliances with all direct action organizations and labor unions as possible. If France and England can do it, we can too.
