We need Jobs – Not Cuts!

 by Paul Garver

Nearly 500 non-paying guests attended Sen. Scott Brown’s $1000/Plate fundraiser in Boston on Wednesday 10 August. Led by 6-piece marching band and shouting We need jobs – Not Cuts and Tax the Rich and Jobs not Wars   a diverse gathering responded to calls from MoveOn.org and MASSUniting (rally co-sponsors). Demonstrators, including several DSA members as participants and organizers, made it clear to Brown and his 20-30 “paying guests” that the “junior” Senator does not represent the values of the majority of Massachusetts voters. For well over an hour the raucous crowd disrupted the decorum of Brown’s fund-raiser and reminded the Senator that he could also face unemployment next November.

The demonstrators chanted “We’ll be back” as they dispersed.  Organizers of the event urged people to join them on August 17th for  another protest at Scott Brown’s office organized by MassUniting and SEIU.
