Caroling Against Cuts Across Virginia Tomorrow

by: ProgressVA

Sun Dec 09, 2012 at 14:02:00 PM EST

Tomorrow at noon, Virginians are gathering at Senator Warner's Norfolk and Vienna offices to "Carol Against Cuts". ProgressVA, the Virginia AFL-CIO, Virginia Organizing, Move On, AARP, Alliance for Retired Americans, SEIU, and fellow progressives from cross the Commonwealth will reprise well-known holiday melodies with new lyrics, such as such as "Oh Fiscal Cliff" to the tune of "O' Christmas Tree".

Our caroling events are part of our statewide day of action asking Virginia's representatives to protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security in the fiscal cliff negotiations while letting the Bush tax cuts for the top 2% expire. We will also visit Senator Warner's office in Roanoke for a candlelight vigil later in the day.

We will be posting pictures, videos, and updates from the events throughout the day - so be sure to check back. Also, if you can please join us, we'd love to have your support and hear your voice.
