By mflowersmd - Posted on 26 September 2010

Thousands of people are expected to arrive in Washington, D.C. on October 2nd, 2010 to participate in the One Nation Rally. This rally for Jobs and Justice could be simply a gigantic photo opportunity for the Democratic party to prove the strong support of their "base" in spite of the failure of the Democratic party to address the real needs of the population. Or it could become an effective demand by the people to insist on real reform for the environment, the economy, peace, health care, you name it.

Single payer supporters will be arriving from around the country to march together with the message that "we still have a health care crisis and we still need single payer health reform!" We invite you to join us and show solidarity. If you work in health care, please wear attire that shows it such as scrubs or a white coat.

Join us at the following events:

Friday, October 1st
Single Payer Party
6 to 8 pm
Busboys and Poets
5t and K Sts, N.W.
Washington, D.C.
Join us for speakers and live music. Food and drink are available for purchase. We will pass out signs and materials and go over logistics for the next day. For more information, contact Margaret at

Saturday, October 2nd
West Potomac Park
10:30 am
Join us as we gather with single payer signs, banners and materials. We will march a short distance from there to the rally.
