What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

The streets of downtown Oakland were filled Saturday, Feb. 7, by an 8,000-strong crowd marching for Real Climate Leadership, the largest march against fracking in U.S. history.


A contingent of union members and labor organizers gathered around the fountain under the banner of "Labor Against Fracking," with representatives from three ASFCME locals, UNITE HERE, United Educators of San Francisco, U.S. Labor Against the War, Jobs With Justice, East Bay Up the Pay, OURWalmart, and EBASE (East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy).


"The planet is our workplace," stated Michael Eisenscher, the representative from U.S. Labor Against the War, setting the tone.


"There are no jobs on a dead planet," said Brooke Anderson of Climate Workers.
