News briefs
Pro-choice protest
Two area pro-choice groups, the Ann Arbor Committee to Defend
Abortion Rights (AACDAR) and Voices for Choice, will picket the Ann
Arbor Pregnancy Counseling Center tomorrow from 10:30 am to noon.
The Counseling Center, located at 606 W. Stadium is known for being
strongly pro-life.
"Our group's main objection to the Counseling Center is that it is a
fake clinic," said AACDAR member Michael Cooper. "It poses as an un-
biased pregnancy clinic, but it is actually a Right to Life front that uses
scare tactics and propaganda to prey on the naivete of their clients."
An AACDAR member who received counseling from the clinic will
be speaking about her experience. The director of the clinic was
unavailable for comment.
Rally against Eastern.
The International Association of Machinists 141 and the Detroit Metro
AFL-CIO are organizing a picket of Eastern airline's Metro Airport
terminal in response to Frank Lorenzo's announcement that Eastern will
resume flights out of Detroit.
Eastern flights out of Metro have been grounded since the airline's
machinists, pilots, and flight attendants went on strike in March.
Organizers say the purpose of the picket is to demonstrate labor solidarity
and show Frank Lorenzo that "Detroit is a union town." Mike Parker of
Labor Notes said that the protest will be "a way for the whole union
movement to send a message to employers that they can't use Lorenzo's
union-busting tactics."
Lorenzo has attempted to cut workers wages by more than half as well
as decreasing other benefits.
The all-day picket and 4:00 rally are scheduled for August 1st outside
of Metro Airport's South terminal.
