On Tuesday, July 2nd, 4-6pm the AFL-CIO and the Alliance for Retired Americans will be having an unusual rally at the federal building in San Francisco to PROTECT AND IMPROVE Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Similar rallies will be held in cities throughout the country. Our East Bay Tax the Rich Group is supporting this event. 

Our goal is to attract the participation of a sufficient number of concerned persons so that we can form a human chain around the San Francisco Federal Building. The proposal by the Obama Administration to appreciably reduce the cost of living index (CPI) for those on Social Security is called the CHAINED CPI. So the reason for surrounding the building is to form a human chain in opposition to the chained CPI. 

Please come, bring your family and friends, and contact others to encourage them to join us. 

WHERE: San Francisco Federal Building - 7th and Mission HOW: Take Bart to Civic Center Station - Walk South WHEN: Tuesday, July 2nd, 4-6pm.
