Occupy to Save the People’s Post Office
The 1% intend to privatize what has been an essential public service operated for the benefit of We the People since April 26, 1775. The Main Stream Media would have us believe the USPS’s problems are solely due to the internet. NOT TRUE. While the internet has had a severe impact on First Class Mail volume, it is the onerous pre-funding mandate imposed by a lame-duck Congress in a voice vote in 2006 which is the root cause of the PO’s financial problems.
Meet at noon at the SW corner of Washington Square Park. The march will be from the park to the Peter Stuyvesant Post Office at 14th St. and 1st Ave where participants will deliver some (oversized) post cards and letters. The march will then return to Union Sq. to join the unified May Day rally.
