If Hurricane Earl does not ruin it, Labor Day is this weekend.  Labor Day is not the "unofficial last day of summer".  It's a day set aside to celebrate the American Worker.

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

It's also happens to be the traditional start of the election season as November comes rushing forward.  The Corporate Media has already named the Teabagger Republicans winners.  In order for that not to happen, the Democrats just need to get excited.  This is the spark to get Democrats fired up and ready to go, once more.


A true grassroots movement is happening.  Have you felt it?

A national alliance of organizations dedicated to the spirit of hope and change that ousted the Republicans from office in 2006 and 2008 will march together, rain or shine, on DC on October 2.

One Nation Working Together is a new alliance of groups working across movements to make sure the progressive majority in this country is heard before the election. March with us on 10.2.10 and demand the change we voted for.

Marching together for things like peace and justice.

A march for unity, diversity, tolerance, social justice as well as for labor, civil and human rights.

A march for jobs, education, healthcare and environmental protections.

A march against the Corporate Oligarchy that has a stranglehold on our government and our society.

A march against hate and fear.

A march against war.

The AFL-CIO expresses support for the One Nation, a multi-racial, civil and human rights groups that aims to reorder our nations priorities so that we invest in our nations most precious resource, its people. One Nation will be holding protests in Washington D.C. on 10/2.

The Machinists Union is now an organizational sponsor of ONE NATION WORKING TOGETHER. A host of major civil rights, religious, labor and environmental organizations are working together to pull off the largest jobs rally in Washington, DC in decades. And there will be local events held in communities all across the country. It all happens on Saturday, October 2, 2010.

Join on Facebook or follow on Twitter to help transcend our superficial differences and bring us together in a common quest for equal opportunity and justice for all.

Stop the navel-gazing, the teeth-gnashing, the clothes-rending and the pathetic self-pity of doom and gloom and get on a bus.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
