On Monday, April 4, stand in solidarity for workers' rights (in memory of Dr. King)

Monday, April 4, is the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was shot while defending the rights of sanitation workers in Memphis.

Today, workers' rights are still under serious threat from the corporate overlords. So, on Monday, events will be held around the U.S. to stand in solidarity to protect workers' rights. The events are sponsored by the We Are One coalition of labor unions and progressive groups.

"If we will join together, we will be able to speed up the coming of the new world in which ... men will no longer take necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes; a world in which all men will respect the dignity and worth of the human personality."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
