Industrial Workers of the World Benefit Concert

On July 6, the Ottawa-Outaouais General Membership Branch of the
Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) is holding a benefit concert for
the General Defense Committee (GDC).  The IWW is a radical, syndicalist
union devoted to class struggle, solidarity, workers' control, and the
abolition of the capitalist system.  The GDC is the legal-aid branch of
the IWW, which gives legal support in all forms to members and
non-members who have found themselves at odds with the authorities.  The
GDC has given support to not only untold numbers of IWW members, but also
to such high-profile causes as the Mumia Abu-Jamal and Leonard Peltier
cases and to many an unsung case.

The concert is being held at Club SAW, 67 Nicholas St., at 9pm on
Saturday, July 6.  Doors open at 8pm.  The line-up for the show features
Ottawa bands After the Troops Leave, Moral Hazard, Paperjack, and The Red
Hots.  Admission is a scant $4 at the door, and this is a licensed, 19+
event.  All proceeds, including alcohol sales, go to the GDC.



An injury to one is an injury to all.
