On January 8, 2006 rank-n-file united auto workers will march in Detroit, Michigan to protest at the North American International Auto Show. In solidarity we will picket the Cobo Conference Center in protest of the attack on working people by GM-Delphi.

It is time for working men and women to stand up and demand the respect we deserve. We ask that you join with the Soldiers of Solidarity on the sidewalks surrounding the auto show. Bring your own signs and show support for working families whose very livelihoods are under attack by GM-Delphi.
