Nurses Call for Tax on Wall Street to Heal America

Nurses, who every day care for the casualties of the economic crisis driven by Wall Street greed, plan to hold a rally in Dewey Square at the site of the Occupy Boston Protest, to show their support for the movement and to highlight the MNA/NNU’s “Main Street Contract” campaign for a tax on Wall Street financial speculation to provide revenue for Main Street reforms, including jobs at living wages, quality education, guaranteed health care for all, and freedom from hunger, homelessness, and retirement insecurity.

The action is part of the opening day activities of the Massachusetts Nurses Association/National Nurses United 2011 Convention (Oct. 5 – 7), being held at the Boston Marriott in Newton.  Hundreds of nurses from all corners of the Commonwealth will board buses at the event and head to the rally at 3 p.m.

What:   Nurses Rally to Support Occupy Boston
When:  Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2001 at 3 p.m.
