Today: Take a Stand Against Corporate Tax Breaks

From the California Labor Federation:

ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, 2009 join workers and allies at Chevron gas stations across the state to protest recent budget deals that give away billions every year, permanently, to a handful of the world’s largest corporations, including Chevron.

With the state in fiscal crisis and Governor Schwarzenegger pushing for another round of catastrophic cuts to education, health care, public safety and other vital services, these unnecessary corporate tax giveaways could instead be used to help keep teachers in the classroom, public safety personnel on duty, infrastructure projects moving, and state parks open.

If you're in Oakland:
"We'll rally this Wednesday at 4:30 pm at the Chevron station downtown at 17th & Castro Streets (Castro runs parallel to Clay/Martin Luther King Streets; near Hwy 980 entrances just above 14th Street)."
