About UFAA and the Public Assembly


Austerity – the imminent, existential threat to the American people. No matter the outcome of the November elections in the US, working families will be thrown over the proverbial “fiscal cliff” in the name of debt and deficits. Cutting Social Security, Medicare and other threads in our fragile social fabric is not only grossly unjust – it won’t work! The so-called “Grand Bargain” threatens to unleash a death spiral of unemployment and poverty which our nation is not certain to survive.

Organizing to defend our economic rights. It is for this reason that we must organize now to mobilize effective opposition to the impending austerity offensive; agitate to shift the burden of the economic depression onto Wall Street oligarchs; and to build momentum toward a genuine political revolution of, by and for the people.

Not a conference – an assembly! The UFAA Public Assembly on October 27 will not be “just another conference” that ends when the doors close. Participants will hear proposals from distinguished speakers, engage in floor debate, and vote on vital strategic matters. The UFAA intends to build on Wisconsin and Occupy – with decisions, demands and action.

Confirmed speakers for the #UFAA public assembly, Oct. 27 in NYC include:
Webster Tarpley
Cindy Sheehan
Anthony Monteiro
Don DeBar
Eric Lerner
Glen Ford (via recorded message)
Yanis Varoufakis (via recorded message)

Still waiting on other confirmations, but this is shaping up to be a very exciting and timely event. Do you or someone you know have something important to say? Are you attending and haven't RSVP'ed?
