Report from the March 7

Rally for the Saint John 7

[We] joined the assembled on the corner of Union and Sidney for chatting, waving, and honking solicitation (felt oddly familiar).  We had a number of photos taken with the banner and we also got a number of expressions of appreciation for being there….  We promised to be at the next event as well, whenever that might be.  All in all, a great hour on the line.

Not all members may be aware of the stalwart support AUNBT received from the Saint John 7 during the recent strike/lockout: they picketed with us from the first day. Their own strike has been going on for over twenty months now (that is not a typo) and at its last meeting, the AUNBT executive voted to make a donation of $500 to their strike fund. This donation was announced by the AUNBT support picketers on Friday.

You can hear the Saint John 7 at Radio Free Saint John.
