While marching in New York City Erik Crawford looked through the book, then filled out his check for it and a Militant subscription, reports Sara Lobman. He then tapped the shoulder of the woman in front of him, urging her to check this out. She also purchased both.
Another young man stopped when he saw the photo in the book of women marching in Burkina Faso, continued Lobman. Youve made my day, he said, explaining that he was Burkinabč and had supported the revolutionary government there led by Thomas Sankara. He bought a Militant subscription, the Workers Power book, and then came by Pathfinders literature table and purchased Thomas Sankara Speaks.
At the May 1 rally in Sydney, Australia, three Militant subscriptions were sold to members of the Maritime Union of Australia, who had participated in the recent wharf stoppage over workplace safety to attend the funeral of a workmate killed in an accident at Patricks Port Botany terminal, reports Ron Poulsen.
The drive ends May 12, so theres still time for you to join in the effort. Contact distributors listed on page 8.
