Million Worker March leaders speak for workers

On October 15, 2005, leaders of the MWM addressed the Millions More Movement
gathering in Washington D.C. Their message was heard and viewed by the 1.8
million people in attendance on the Mall. 

Appearing on behalf of the labor movement were Patricia Ann Ford, Chris
Silvera and the MWM's own Clarence Thomas. A transcript of their comments
are available here <http://www.mwmdetroit.org/MillionsMore.html>  

C-SPAN also covered the event, and Real Media clips are available online at
their website:

MWM supports Millions More Movement

On May 14 and 15, the Million Worker March held a National Report-back and
Networking Meeting in Detroit, which brought together MWM organizers and
leaders representing various regions of the country. 

The consensus of those present expressed strong support for the MWM's
endorsement of the 10-year commemoration of the Million Man March, which is
being organized as the Millions More Movement. The MMM will seek to mobilize
millions to Washington, D.C., on Oct. 14 through Oct. 16.
