CUSP – Citizens United for a Sustainable Planet is organizing an important rally.
Please join us to show support for our local CBC and to voice concern over the continued cuts to public broadcasting.
When? Friday May 1st, 2015 8 am – 8:30 am – rain or shine
Where? 213 Miles Street, outside the CBC building
We’re calling this peaceful gathering “What’s Up With Jolene?” as Jolene Banning, who is the local face of CBC, works on public service announcements and events, does administrative work, and is at the heart of the CBC Thunder Bay family, is losing her job – along with a senior position that will not be replaced following an upcoming retirement.
Dress? Black, for mourning, if you have it. We’ll have duct tape and bandages for people who wish to put it on their mouths to symbolize being silenced and on their faces to symbolize the cuts – many now, and ongoing.
Signs? Bring one if you like!
Songs? If we’re lucky, Scott will write one for us and bring song sheets. If you’re creative, please do so too! Or write a rant or a poem.
Get the word out! Please distribute widely. Thousands in Thunder Bay love and depend on the CBC. Please bring some of them with you!
